The staff in Astor Queensway were very friendly and helpful. I travelled with a heavy luggage. The staff present when I checked in volunteered to help me carry my luggage upstairs to my room. Astor Queensway had events every night so you would not get bored staying here at all. If you think you are travelling with a big luggage, ask if you can stay in one of the lower level rooms as there are no lifts to take you up. Overall, I enjoyed my stay and would stay here again.

Thank you very much for your lovely words, we are sorry to hear that you struggled with our stairs. As a heritage building we cannot have a lift but we hope to see you again and do our best to accommodate you in one of our lower floors and we will be willing to help you with your luggage as always! Enjoy the rest of your trip, Astor Queensway team.

Astor Queensway lovely hostel with fun, friendly and helpful staff members. Extremely well kept with great kitchen, shower, laundry and wi-fi facilities. Great place to meet people and socialise, but also plenty of privacy for the quiet traveller. Conveniently located near 2 major metro's and plenty of shops and convenience stores close by. A must stay in London.

I had a good time in Astor Queensway. The Staff was very helpful and nice. The dorm is ok, but there are few jacks and they are far form the beds. The beds are ok. There are also few bathroom/shower... The breakfast is nice and included!

Fantastic hostel and the best I've ever stayed at! Staff was extremely helpful and they have great tips on the city. Also loved how you could get so many appliances and converters for free. I would highly recommend. The bar crawl was decent fun too.

One of the best hostels I have stayed at during my travels! Clean and comfortable, full kitchen and plenty of storage for food. Less than 3 minute walk to the closest tube station. The staff is amazing, super friendly and helpful, especially Pete, Ian and Alexa!

I stayed in this hostel 1 week. The staff is nice and easy going, they organise events every evening creating a good atmosphere. The location is perfect: it is very near to the tube stop, markets and to the city attractions.

Good place to stay although a bit pricey it is to be expected in London. Easy access to three of the major tube lines with stations a block away. Kitchen facilities are great! Overall the place is kept tidy, beds are good with cages underneath to keep every locked away and secure.

Excellent Hostel! Great location, near to 2 tube stations. Great breakfast. Staff very helpful. Informations about the attractions are provided efficiently in the boards. The only thing missing is an individual light and charger in each bed, it's very inconvenient to charge your phone away from your bed and don't have a light to read or etc. Besides that, perfect hostel! Highly recommended!

My stay at this hostel was very good. The location is great and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The bedroom was ok, it seemed clean and the bed was comfortable, but since the window didn't open, it was a bit smelly. They offer a very good breakfast for only 50p! The only bad thing is that there are few bathrooms/toilets for the number of people staying there. Sometimes they are all busy and you have to wait some time to use the toilet or to take a shower.

Nice hostel with little worn out damages here and there. The staffs are nice. It is easy to mingle, since it is a small hostel. Excellent location. Close to Hyde park, and Buckingham Palace

A little expensive but it's fare in London. close to two tube stations, which is really convenient, and the Hyde park is just cross the street! The breakfast was okay but free, only take a 0.5 pound donation.
