I've stayed at a few hostels in London, and it's easily my favorite. The location is perfect, being walking distance to all of the Central London attractions. It's clean and it's safe, though granted, I've yet to find any hostel in London that has the same community atmosphere that I've seen in Europe. Still, as a place to rest your head after a day of touring around London, this is the best deal around.

Great location, comfortable rooms and common areas. The people didn't seem very open to chatting/making friends with new guests and most guests seemed to keep to themselves.

The toilets and the bathrooms are dirty. and the wifi is poorly to be connected in rooms!

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hostel. The staff were awesome which made a contagious positive vibe for all the other guests. it was a clean hostel and when it was too cold to cold outside I could just watch a movie in the tv room or chat with someone in the kitchen. An inspiring experience! !!

Astor museum inn was a great hostel to stay at. Walking distance to everything. The staff were super helpful and friendly and were very thorough with details. The hostel itself has a great atmosphere and the rooms are nice and clean, as are the toilets and showers. I would recommend this hostel to anyone and will stay again when I return to London.

This hostel is in a very central location. To me that was the only great thing about it. Unfortunately, the storage lockers under each bed were extremely noisy, I could here one screech open from the room on the floor below me. The WiFi would cut in and out (I was on the third floor, not sure if better on others) and the bathrooms weren't v. clean (the place seems quite old). A sign on one shower door had a statistic about how much water you save per year if you pee in the shower, eek.

The location is phenomenal and the beds are comfy. The staff were friendly and helpful. Could be a bit cleaner in the rooms, but the kitchen was spotless and that's really what counts, I think. The only significant downside was that smokers wouldnt smoke outside, but in the hall with the front door open, which made the entrance and front rooms smell terrible. All things considered, I would definitely recommend and personally stay again.

This is a fantastic hostel. Most of the members of the staff are super friendly and helpful (one or two were kind of annoying, but whatever), you can't beat the location, and overall it's better than the other hostels I visited in London. It's very easy to get around if you're staying here, and the area is well-lit and nice as well. I would definitely book again.

This hostel has a great location and it is always nice to be there. Nevertheless, you have to take into consideration that it is one of these older hostels. I like it anyway.

Very cool place, you can have many things for free like coffee, tea, hot chocolate. FREE WI-FI, which is the best and the staff is awesome, you can interact with lots of people if you want to...it's like being home, watching tv in the lounge area. It's quiet to sleep and I found everything very clean.
