Good location. Decent stay overall. Only complaint was that the bed sheets barely fit the beds, so if you move in your sleep, you end up in the cold.

I had a nice stay and I liked the place. Only problem was that it was very hot in our room because the radiators were on very high. Otherwise lovely. And nice that the shower was hot straight away :)

Great location to the London Coach Station as well as Bus Station. Also the 24 hour 24 bus runs along the street the hostel is on which is great to see many of the main sites.

It wasn't the best, but also wasn't the worst either. I arrived and the rooms were very dirty (due to the others staying in the room). My biggest issue that I was really disappointed about was that the photos on the website were not anything like the rooms etc. Also one power point for a 6 bedroom dorm, very disappointed as myself and others had many things needed charge at all times, as pictures had shown many power points per room. The cinema room was nice though.

Two main disadvantages: 1) Very noisy. Walls and doors are made like from cardboard, because you can hear everything whats happening in all rooms, located in the same floor. And we also received a "lucky bonus" - false fire alarm triggered at least 4 times (latest was ~3am), so this was the most negative experience so far. 2) Shower heads are mounted high in the wall and cant be moved, so its feels like a rain instead of decent washing. Apart from that, this hostel is ok for ppl who wanna party.

Hi there, many thanks for the time spent to leave us a feedback. The hostel was quite busy during the weekend, there are more around 200 people in the house! Concerning the alarm, it wasn't false, we had just a problem with water leaking affecting the alarm detector. The shower head is not so high, it's more then a decent washing. Hope to see you again in the lovely London, always @ Astor Victoria Hostel! Big Hug, The Astor Victoria Family!

It was a very nice hostel and it had a great atmosphere. I loved how this hostel in addition to having a viewing room to watch movies there was another hangout area near reception where you could listen to music and talk to people. I met so many wonderful people and I made lifelong friends. The staff could of been a bit friendlier.

Definitely a party hostel so if you are looking for something more quiet this is not the place

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hi there, thanks so much for the time spent to leave a feedback. We organize some events during the week for people who want to party but never forget that we have a good neighbour policy and after midnight everybody is asked to be quiet. Other than this, we're not just a party hostel. We suggest a lot of walking tours, we do free pancakes afternoons, dinners, movie nights etc. Hope to see you again in the lovely London, always @ Astor Victoria Hostel. Big Hug, The Astor Victoria Family!

Really nice staff who speaks different languages, breakfast almost free (only 50p for charity, what a good idea actually!) with lots of things to eat, and many facilities to let your luggages during the day, wash your clothes or keep your food in the hostel. Besides, the staff gives you a free map and plenty of advice to visit the city, so it's really cool. Thank you all for these days.

Excellent location close to Victoria and Pimlico stations. Felt secure - lockers provided (padlocks for rent) in rooms and secure lockers for valuables with reception. Clean rooms and friendly staff. Will definitely stay again, although was a little disappointed to note they have a maximum age of 35, which means that a friend I often travel with would be unable to stay there.

Very nice and central hostel close to Victoria Station (5min walk). The staff was very nice and courteous. Lockers were in the receptionroom so it was always monitored. Under the beds, there were gridboxes which you could secure with your padlock. So it was very nice for security. Breakfast was for free but you're asked to make a small donation so it was absolutely ok. The only bad think i can say about the hostel is the wifi-connection in room 1. Didn't work at all.. summed up... 8/10 points!

Excellent location, nice area, close to Pimlico tube station, close to Victoria coach/train stations, cheap as chips, and also cheap for breakfast. Clean, tidy and nice, couldn't really ask for any more for the money

The place was nice and in a decent location. Wasn't the cleanest hostile I've ever stayed in and get ready to climb a ton of stairs.

Had a nice stay here. Was in the 6 bed female dorm. Nice staff. Lockers available under the beds (very noisy though). I thought the breakfast was a good variety. There's a movie room if you have time. 5-10 min walk to 2 underground stations, and there is a bus that's basically right outside the hostel that takes you to some of the touristy places. I'd recommend staying here.

My friends and I had a great stay at Astor Victoria! Good value for the money, fantastic location (Buckingham Palace, Hyde Park, Westminster Abbey, and Big Ben/Houses of Parliament all walkable), and a solid breakfast for only 50p, proceeds going to charity. The shower in my 4-bed all-female room (42) was more of a cock-eyed drizzle than a shower, but still worked. Best of all was the staff, though- shout out to everyone who dealt with my probably-annoying emails and questions. Thanks a million!

the hostel seems like an alright place although covers, pillows and mattresses definitely need changed! they were in a filthy state and look like they've probably been used since the hostel's been opened. staff seemed quite nice even though my friend and I can't really judge about that since we actually only used the hostel as a place to sleep. We have never seen the kitchen either. The showers were okay but the first day too hot and too cold on the second..

My visit at the Astor hostel was very good. The hostel had high standard and fresh rooms . Also a well -equipped kitchen. The best thing about Astor hostel was the staff. They could help me with everything, answer questions and give advice.
