The biggest problem was that 4th floor is too far without an elevator, so no real issues here :)

I stayed in a double room with an ensuite. The only down side was the room and bathroom were really small. The staff were excellent and able to help us with any questions we had. The location was excellent; it is walking distant to The Natural History Museum, Kensington Palace

The hostel was a well placed hotel near hyde park in a very safe location. The Staff were helpful when needed. Atmosphere seemed like a lot of people working there or not willing to socialize, which was weird so not great if you're looking to meet a lot of people. But a nice accomodation to have a bed for a night.

Very nice hostel, very good location. Friendly and helpful staff. Bed mattress was very worn out and did not sleep nice. Breakfast could be earlier than 8, as we had day trips 2 of the mornings and had to leave before breakfast. Also, when you get there at 8, it is total mad rush and it is difficult to get a seat.

Friendly reception staff, I had to cut my trip short by a day and this went on smoothly and I was promptly refunded. Dorm was well maintained.

This is one of e. Best hostels I've ever stayed in. Cool staff, great facilities, and lots of fun trips for the people who stay there. I will definitely stay with Astor again in the future and highly recommend it to all travelers.

The hostel is nothing special, good central location though and this drives the price up (somewhat excessively). The bathrooms were small and grimy and didn't drain well, which was gross, especially when sharing with 5 other people! The staff were nice but very particular about rules such as where you can leave your luggage. Having left luggage at the bottom of two very steep and narrow staircases is quite frankly, stupid and dangerous, especially when no one will help you with your bags.

Ive stayed at Astor Hyde Park before and it is always a pleasure! So incredibly easy to get from Heathrow Airport and located in beautiful South Kensington! Free breakfast is always a bonus!

The hostel, staff, and other visitors were fantastic. Having breakfast everyday free was very nice, as was the lounge. The only problem I had was our shower not draining properly and our bathroom floor always being soaked. The location was great and I had an awesome time in London

Loved this Hostel!! Stayed here for 7 nights (solo traveller) in June and couldn't really fault it. Free breakfast was good, staff were friendly and helpful, really clean and located a 5-10min walk to the tube station with 3 different lines. The kitchen, dining and lounge areas were a BIG PLUS and were large, well equipped and great for meeting others. I would certainly recommend Astor Hyde Park to anyone travelling to London and would stay here again in a heartbeat!

My first hostel so I have nothing to compare it to. That being said I enjoyed my stay and the staff was super friendly. Location is a bit far from central London, the closest subway is 15 minutes away. On the other hand it is next to Hyde Park which is a nice walk.

A calm hostel, where you get movie nights. The rooms are good, you get a shower per room. The neighborhood is amazing and they staff is very helpful.

Great staff, about 12 min walk to closest tube station. Wish they had curtains for the bunks, would add that element of privacy. Hot buns and cereal for breakfast. Nice hostel.

My only complaint was that the beds were a little stiff, other than that it was a great experience

New, modern hostel with a large kitchen and hanging out area, so you can meet and spend time with other travelers. Great staff and 24 hour reception - we checked in very late and they were accommodating. Free breakfast, coffee, tea, and access to the kitchen, so enjoy that. The location is close to Hyde Park and Kensington Palace, but you'll need the metro to get everywhere else.

Great location right near hyde Park. Staff were really helpful and friendly. Rooms and bathrooms have all the essentials and are clean. As with all london hostels can be expensive and need your own towel etc. Washing machines also available on site.
