bluewaav I stayed at Travel Joy Hostel in April 2010. The thing that impressed me the most about the hostel was the friendly, helpful staff. They really made my stay, so much so that, on the way back, I stayed there again! The negatives about the hostel were the rickedy beds. The first time I stayed there, I got a top bunk. There only was a bar on one side (it's a good thing that I don't move a lot when I sleep!) and on the other side was a gap before the wall, so I could have easily fallen off the bed. It made me nervous. The sheets were scrupulously clean and the comforter was warm. The bathrooms were decently clean, but the shower drain clogged once and water spilled everywhere. I liked the modern decor everywhere. Also, the hostel seemed to be in a perpetual state of construction. They must be doing some remodling. The showers and toilets were pretty nice. The hostel has internet facilities. I didn't need to use laundry facilities so I didn't check to see if they had any. The computers are pretty quick, which is nice, because you don't always get that! The hostel has a bar that is pretty much always open, so you can get a pint whenever you want. The Thai restaurant opens at 6 PM. The food was pretty good- not fantastic- but good enough for a hostel restaurant. By the way, stay away from pear cider (bad, bad headache)! The free breakfast in the morning was good, but began a little late, not until 8:30. That is fine of you are just sightseeing, but if you have to catch an early flight (mine was at noon), then you can't eat breakfast! Just so you know, it takes two hours to get to Heathrow from this hostel, so budget your commute to the airport accordingly. The hostel is located on the Victoria line of the tube, which is a pretty good line. I found it easy to get from place to place using both the tube and the bus. The popular 24 bus goes right passed the hostel. To get to the hostel, you go to Pimlico Station. It is about a half hour walk to get to the hostel along the Thames, but you seem to do a lot of walking in London, anyway. Just make sure that you have a well-made backpack for walking a bit! And that's it. Oh, I should mention that the hostel isn't wheelchair accessable. So if you have physical handicaps, know that you will have to walk up a couple slightly narrow flights of stairs to get to your room. Maybe it would be better to go somewhere that has a lift?

siijiska Very nice little hostel very close to Hyde Park. One has to walk a bit from the underground but there are several buses, and the location is really central. The hostel is situated in a very charming old building, there is lot of space in the dorms, and the staff is really friendly! We had a little trouble staying here, with people getting placed in each other's beds etc. but the staff was always nice and eager to help us out with all problems. They say 24h reception, but quite often it seemed to be noone there at night, so if you're in a hurry and must check out in the middle of the night you better tell them in advance. Nice and clean dorms and showers, unfortunately the water pipes makes a noise in the entire building when used. But overall, I had a nice stay at Astor Hyde Park and could recommend it.
