Really enjoyed my stay here. The hostel is easy to find, only about 5 minutes walk from the tube station. Beds were comfortable and the staff were helpful :) Only one suggestion, to add some air flow to the bathrooms, it was like a sauna in there!! haha
There was no lifts so I had to carry my suitcase all the way to the higher floor, which was a lot of work.
I had a great time staying here, the atmosphere was fun and everyone was friendly. The hostel is within walking distance to the Science and Natural History museums, as well as being right near Hyde Park. Bed was comfortable enough and reasonably quiet at night. Would definitely come back if I was travelling to the west side of London again.
It was a bit weird storing my luggage, knowing that anyone who has the key can affect our luggage. It's worth having a camera in there, or making a sign in list every time we enter mandatory.
I loved Astor Queensway; by far the best hostel experience I've had so far. All of the staff were incredibly friendly. I especially want to point out Ben. Ben was there on my first day and took time out of his day to show me London and recommend places to me. He introduced me to other members of the staff and I enjoyed spending time with them, hearing their recommendations and suggestions, and getting to know London. Because of the staff, I fell that much more in London. It was also very clean.
Creepy guy hanging around the hostel all the time talking to young girls

One of the smaller hostels in London which works in it's favour to create a somewhat unique and lively atmosphere. Easy to meet people and in a good location, so close to shops/bars/park/underground stations, although still a trek to the main attractions. Guys if you could install A/C in the rooms you'd take the no1 spot for sure! Great staff and not too many of them so easier to make a connection. Spotlessly clean, I'd stay again if they'd have me! A hidden gem!
Good location, friendly people, the problem is the plug is not enough in the room
Staff, location, etc. were great. However, rooms are very small and ensuite rooms due to ventilation system noisy.
I really liked this Hostel, staff were friendly and helpful :). Good atmosphere, nice people, good events I went on the pub crawl there which was a great way to see Camden and meet people. Very close to fantastic underground train system to get into Central London. Wifi was very reliable and fast. Only improvement would be to have bigger shower areas, as they were very cramped. I would recommend :)
everything ok! i little hot in the rooms, but the rest is perfect
Thanks for a great stay! Lovely staff!

The staff were great!!! The location not that good and the price was too expensive. The rooms were very small! My compliments for the breakfast, was really good and I liked the 1 pound charity.
Very friendly staff, excellent breakfast spread and awesome vibe. Among the 15+ hostels I have stayed in all over Europe, this is definitely one of my favorites. - Abhinav, USA

A bit of a far walk from most places, but close to Queensway and Bayswater tube stations, so easy to get around. Hostel itself was on a quiet side street next to Hyde Park. Stayed here just for a night because our flight got pushed back until the next day, and it was a good place to sleep.
Took about an hour to check a group of six into the hostel. When we asked them to call us a taxi in the morning, they called a private company whose driver charged twice as much as the regular ones and made us very late. Poor service overall.
good location, very clean but the room was a bit dry
Very nice hostel with great atmosphere. Well conected to the city of London. Great value for money.
