I spent Christmas in this hostel and felt quite at home doing so. Like everything in London, this hostel isn't cheap, but it is worth the money spent. The cages beneath each bed were super convenient and larger than the lockers found in most other hostels. The common room and kitchen/dining room were great spaces for getting out of your room and meeting others. And the location was great! Hyde Park is beautiful and a very short bus ride away from the main center. I will definitely return.

Ok so this was my second stay for 5 nights in a 12 bed dorm. Preferred this to the 6 bed. If the hostel managers read these please take these suggestions! I know you probably can't put electric plugs near the beds but perhaps at least a little light for each bed? Would save a lot of crashing about at 4am. Electrical plug in the bathroom for a hairdryer would be nice. SHELVES more shelves pls in bathroom!!!! Otherwise great hostel, easy access to station, lovely safe area, gr8 staff, good kitchen

Hello, Thanks for the review and the repeat business. We greatly appreciate the feedback. We do read our reviews on a daily basis, and take all guest comments into consideration.These are historic buildings and unfortunately we are unable to place new wiring throughout. However, we can place more power outlets into the rooms! We have now gone into the 12 bed and done so. We hope to see you again soon!! Enjoy the rest of your travels! Lots of love from the Astor Hyde Park team!

Perfect atmosphere. Thanks for the stay. The door in Room 2 is very noisy which makes it hard for the people which ware sleeping close to the door.

This is for my first stay in a 6 bed dorm. Place is pretty cool altogether, 50p continental breakfast and good kitchen facilities. Bed is super comfy. Has lots of stairs so if you can't handle that then bad luck but staff have offered to help with my luggage every time. Only downside is facilities in room, no plug or light for each bed (would make a huge improvement if it did!) just a group of plugs together. And no plug in bathroom so girls can't dry their hair without disturbing anyone!

I stayed here for almost my entire month in London. Rooms were great and cleaned thoroughly daily. Breakfast for 50p was well worth it. Amazing location being so close to Kensington/Hyde Parks as well as a very short bus/tube ride into the centre of London. Amazing price considering the location!

Room was clean and spacious in our 6 bed dorm. Beds were comfy but I'm 6'2" and felt they were just a little short not that bad though! Bathroom was a little dirty but generally fine. Kitchwn was also good. Overall the location was good but it was at least a 10 minute walk from the nearest tube station which was farther than other hostels we have stated at. Overall we had a good stay and would gladly come back.

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)

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.
