The hostel is just a 5 minute walk from Pimlico and 20 minutes from Big Ben. The bathrooms were very clean most of the times, and although the hostel was pretty full, I always found a vacant shower or toilet when I needed one. Breakfast is provided, so are hairdryers and lockers. Staff is helpful and friendly, rooms are locked with key cards and therefore pretty secure. If you're on a budget this is for you.

The place was nice overall, the only thing I couldn't accept is the dirty bathroom and the obstructed shower! It was horrible and disgusting having a shower in a 30cm of dirty water. Moreover the bathroom's floor was also completely wet as well as my shoes!

bathrooms were pretty dirty, showers were completely stuffed up with hair. I guess this is also guests' fault but a deeper cleaning would definitely help. walls were also pretty thin so any kind of noise was to be heard

Actually I like it very much, maybe they need to improve their WiFi signal in the kitchen and upper floors. But it is a good hostel and have a good staff, really helpful.

It was very pleasant place to stay! The breakfast was good, and the atmosphere too. Althought going to the 4th floor was kinda challenging, a lot of stairs!! but the rooms and everything else were good.

At the confirmation of the booking, we received an email telling that we will be dispatched in different room, and I answered that it was the reason (to be in the same room) why we choosed this hostel... and finally we were in the same room, but it seem that a lot of people met this problem as we saw discussions at the reception. We had no problem and the location of the hostel was perfect, with a breakfast and some facilities like cash machine for example.

첫 호스텔 이용인데... 엘리베이터가 없는 걸 빼면 모든 것이 완벽!! 너무 인기있는 호스텔이라... 총 6박 중 3박만 같은 방, 그리고 매일 방을 바꿔야 한다는 사실에 너무 우울했지만... 너무 친절한 스태프들이 매일 짐을 날라주어 힘 들지 않았어요 ㅎㅎㅎ 너무 행복했던 기억 가지고 돌아가요~ 다음에 또 런던 올 때 다시 가고 싶어요!! 24번 버스가 있어 편했고... 세인즈버리도 가까워서 좋았어요~ 무엇보다 스태프들이 진짜 짱~~!! Thanks, all astor victoria staff!! I'll be missing you all~!!

Staying in Astor Victoria was wonderful! Great location, easy to find from Victoria train or coach station ! The bathrooms were clean, and the staff were so helpful. Only thing : if you are a germaphobe bring or buy plastic silverware for breakfast! Everyone uses then cleans their own dishes, so I would recommend bringing your own. Altogether, I would highly recommend this hostel and stay here again !

Pretty average hostel. I stayed in a 6 girl dorm,bunk beds. Wifi was pretty poor quality, but it was enough to check your emails and post some pics. There was a common room downstairs that most people were sitting in just to use the wifi. Breakfast was average, rolls (if you were there early enough) and then toast. It was really unsanitary though, you have to wash your own dishes and I never trusted the person who washed theirs before I used them. Bathrooms- average. Staff- friendly. ATM.

the location is good, and the quality is nice. It's a good choice to live in when traveling around London. The only point I was not satisfied is the bathroom. It's quite small and offer nothing with gel.

Staffs are very nice and good location and breakfast too. The door is too noisy whenever it closes and sometimes toilets are not properly flushed. It's too narrow for big luggage. Even though there were some small problems, the staffs were really willing to help me. It covers all drawbacks. Recommended this hostel.

The good thing was breakfast included. The staff were friendly and helpful. The bed was a bit squeaky but still comfy. One window in my room didn't have any curtain so it was very bright in the morning.
