Hi there, Thanks for taking the time to write us a review! We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. We have recently had all our old matresses replaced to make your stay an even better one! Hope to see you again soon!! Lots of love from the Astor Hyde Park family


Good location - a couple minutes walk from Hyde Park, and about a 10-15 min walk from the tube stop that takes you right to all tourist stops (or you could walk to the touristy locations - ~1 hr, nice walk). The hostel was excellent! Clean and great atmosphere! Only 4 outlets in our 6 person room but we worked that out. Towels not provided, but there was a small breakfast that was free (well, a 50p donation to a charity)


I have been to lots of hostels in London but this is one of the bests!

Hello, We are thrilled you had an exceptional stay with us! We are always trying to ensure our guests have the best hostel experience staying with us!! We appreciate the kind words and can't wait to see you next time you're in London!! Enjoy the rest of your travels! The team @ Astor Hyde Park


Oh Dear, where do I start? Saying that Astor Hyde Park is the best hostel in London would be both reductive and cliché. Located in the poshest area in London (yes, you are technically Prince Harry's neighbour), AHP will allow you to live the life of a Thackeray character for the budget of a Dickens character. The staff is adorable for the most part (don't be shy and read Dan, the try-hard-sassy current manager for filth), the place is über safe and so clean you could eat on the floor. Enjoy!


the place is amazing in comfort and commodities, also the staff was awesome, polite and eager to help or simply chat with you.

Hello, We're glad to hear that you had a great stay with us. Our staff is always here to help whenever you need it! We pride our self in being of the coziest and cleanest hostels in London. Can't wait to have you stay with us next time you're in the city. All the best, The team @ Astor Hyde Park


The staff was very much a clique. They dominated the atmosphere in every way. But maybe it was just this current staff. They were, also, really rude about breakfast. Breakfast is from 8-10 and at 10 you are kicked out of the kitchen. Because they have to "clean". After they all sit and have breakfast together, of course. I'm sure they isn't any better time to clean a communal kitchen then from 10-11:30 in the morning. So, I won't be staying here again but it might be others cup of tea.

We apologies if our cleaning schedule affected your stay with us however we just want to make sure everything is perfectly clean for your stay. We hope to see you again next time you are in London. Lots of Love AHP


The best hostel I've stayed in london


Very clean and secure place. Not really a central location. But London is HUUUGE. Kind of expensive for a hostel. Definitely not a party place, if you a are looking for it. But I guess the best place to stay for a shirt period.
