Very nice hostel. The staff are very helpful. I felt safe. Stayed in a 6-bed female dorm which had a sink. Only 5-8 min walk to 2 tube lines. I'd recommend this hostel to anyone.

This is a great place to stay; the facilities are clean and functional (one of the best hostel showers I've had to date), and the staff is terrific. They let us check in a little early and store our bags after we had checked out. Everything was taken care of and they made a quick day trip as easy and painless as possible. Would definitely recommend this one, especially if you're wanting a place close to Hyde Park/Kensington High Street area.

It's the staff at Astor that make your visit memorable, as the facilities aren't much special. The location is great, just off the Central line down a lane of hotels away from the main drag. Kitchen is well-equipped and each morning there's free bread and hot drinks. Game nights, pub nights, bowling, movie nights in the lounge, are all made even better by the great staff who are willing to do anything to help you out.

Simply the best. Located right by Hyde Park, quiet but not far from the city center, so convenient for walks or bike rides. Security was always excellent - 24 hour reception, under the bed lockers. Bathroom was way more clean than expected. The atmosphere was always so friendly and the staff are just brilliant - wonderful, welcoming, and so much fun! You really can't go wrong in choosing one of the Astors in London!

I've stayed in many hostels, but this definately hits the top 3 of them. I had a great time in London, and this hostel played an important part in it. The staff is absolutely awesome, they will go the extra mile for you for sure. like carrying your suitcase up if needed (there is no elevator) or giving advice about places to go, but also organizing great activities for the travellers. Hygiene good, location perfect, felt secure. Only negative: beds are a bit small. I'll go back there!

The staff here are really awesome and super helpful -- I love that the hostel goes above and beyond to take away all of the inconveniences of traveling. For example, they have a leave/take bucket of toiletries. I would say that they need to upgrade their beds and maybe renovate a tad bit but otherwise great hostel.

I really loved this hostel. Very nice, close to the underground and well located. Pretty nice atmosphere, nice matresses , and they make efforts to keep the hostel well maintained! I surely recommend this hostel since its closed to many restaurants! The staff is very friendly and helpful. There are a lot of activities you can find to enjoy yourself and meet people!

The rooms were pretty small which made it hard if you had a big bag. Otherwise good. The pillows were too thin, it felt like I didn't have one at all..

Ideal hostel for single travelers - easy to make friends. The place was well maintained and just a few minutes walk from major subway lines. The walk into the center area (e.g. Picadilly Circus) is about 40 minutes, and maybe 15 by metro. I recommend staying in a room with an ensuite bathroom, otherwise you might have to go to a different floor to use the toilet in the middle of the night. Really had a wonderful weekend here!

The place was very accessible and very nice. It was like a dorm. Padlocks were available for a deposit which we got back at the end which was very nice. Breakfast also was only 50 pence which was also toward a charity which was also a plus. There was only 1 restroom and shower shared among the floor but that was completely fine. Overall I greatly recommend this hostel!
