Excellent location! Rooms were quite spacious and outside showers were always available. Great atmosphere- really easy to meet new people. Stayed on the first floor which was good, otherwise be prepared to lug your backpack up a fair few stairs. Fantastic hostel though, would definitely return :)

The location is very good as it is close to two major metro lines. The staff could have been friendlier though. I often felt that they were more interested in socializing than helping people.

Location was perfect. Bloomsbury is a beautiful area. Very secure, needing a code to enter the building and a key to your room. I never had to wait for the bathroom unless I was downstairs in the kitchen area. Staff was incredibly friendly. It was hard to tell who were staff and who were guests cause the staff partied harder than most of the guests, which was fun, but they could have been more professional :) Still, the best part about our stay was the staff and how welcoming they were.

Great place to stay in London. Prime location and perfect if you are on a budget or even have you have money to spend but just want to meet great people and have a good time. Staff were very friendly and always made an effort to cater to all needs. Definitely recommend this place for people to stay when they are in London!

Very cosy environment. Extremely convenient in terms of transportation. One can easily reach many main areas of London. I prefer staying in "Little Russell Street" to the main building, despite the lack of kitchen and the problem of luggage, majority of the rooms are bigger.

No air conditioning - it was impossible to sleep in those small stuffy rooms.

This hostel was really awesome i actually spent a week here and go to know the staff very well. It's literally across the street from The British Museum and a ten minute walk from the train station and 5 minute walk from the grocery. Its fifteen from the main square and bars. The staff are super nice and laid-back. they gave you lockers under bed and they had the biggest dvd collection ever

It was a very busy hostel but everyone was friendly and willing to help. Only downside was that it got very hot at night with 12 people in a room with no AC or open windows.

Please clean more often. Felt unsafe having to walk between the two sites at night time.

The hostel is really well located, been in front of the british museum and a 5min walk from the oxford street and the tube station. The staff was really helpfull and friendly, there was free breakfast and free wi fi. All the rooms are upstairs, so if if have a big bag be prepared for going up and down. The wi fi sometimes didn't worked properly, but the price of this hostel is a real bargai! It's really worth it, you defnitely won't find anithing like this for that price at that zone.

I really liked my stay at the Astor Museum Inn. The staff is really friendly, it's safe, the room is big (I stayed at a 10-bed room) and the location is great. There were things I didn't like, though. In the room there is only one shaving point. People who are in beds far from it have a difficult time. The bathrooms are too small. I prefer hostels that have shared bathrooms. You have less privacy but more space. But it's definitely a good hostel and I recommend it.

Rooms were big and nice. Lockers were good. Staff was wonderful, had a kitchen and common room with TV were people hung out and drank. Good place to meet people. Location was good, near two stations and British Museum. Not enough showers / toilets though, I always had to wait.

Amazing location right next to the British Museum and within walking distance to Covent Garden, Oxford Circus, and Leicester Square. The staff are really nice too :) The only thing is that the bathrooms are not super clean. The shower had a lot of bugs and there's also no air conditioning in the rooms so it was like a furnace during the day, but at night it was fine. Overall a great stay!

It was my first time sleeping in a dorm and I was pleasantly surprised how clean the rooms were. Easily accessible by tube and easy to find thanks to the directions provided by the hostel. Even though I arrived very late in the evening, there were no problems whatsoever finding my reservation.
