Hostelworld says:

Astor Hyde Park won 1st Best Small hostel chain and 1st in the Lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 Hoscars and it's easy to see why. It's located in the upscale neighbourhood of South Kensington beside Hyde Park and close to several of London's best museums. Guests have praised this location for being a 'wonderful area close to everything [but] also far enough away to be off the tourist trail'. One reviewer said this is 'a great hostel if you're looking for somewhere central in London without paying a fortune'. We like their relaxed, friendly staff, who we've been told are 'very helpful, personable and informative'.

    This was by far my favorite hostel yet. No extra charge to store bags if you show up early. Breakfast is light but included (cereal, coffee, tea, toast with peanut butter, jams, nutella, butter), with free (fast!) wifi. It didn't reach up to the 4th or 5th floors, but there was ample room in the comfy chairs in lounge to make up for it. After all, it's free. Happy, helpful staff 24hrs! Super close to the Nat History and V&A museums, Hyde park, eats and shops on Gloucester rd (5 min walk).

    Only stayed for one night so its hard to judge. The staff seemed friendly, its in a good location in walking distance to some of the sights but i found the beds a little small and didn't like that the power sockets were grouped together instead of one by each bed.
