Hostelworld says:

Note: 18-35 yrs old only. Astor Museum won 1st Best Small hostel chain and 1st in the Lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 Hoscars! Astor Museum Inn is across the street from the British Museum in 'a classy part of town', according to one Hostelworld user. Our reviewers have praised this hostel's 'awesome, very friendly staff' who offer 'excellent service for the value'. We've noticed that this hostel sees a lot of repeat guests who seem to come back because there's 'always something going on' in this 'very chilled out' hostel with a 'relaxed and hippie' atmosphere.

    The atmosphere was really awesome because there was a family atmosphere. Especially if you travel alone you will easily find people who will hang out with you! Futhermore, the staff of the hostel was very friendly and could give you good advices. =) One of the best hostels i ever stayed at.

    I've really enjoyed my stay in this hostel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, just in front of the British Museum and there is an underground station a few meters away. The dorms are clean and tidy as well as the bathrooms and toilets. For just 50p (donation to a charity), the breakfast is good. It is a bit noisy but with earplugs, it is not a problem. It's great value for money. If I come back in London, I'll definitely book here :)
