Stayed in a 6 bed room on the second floor from the ground. The room had a skin in it which was nice because the bathroom sinks were too small to brush you teeth and wash your face in without making a mess. Washrooms were mostly clean as were the kitchen areas. Never had to wait for the washroom. Good walking distance to Westminster Abbey, Big Ben and Buckingham palace. Kind of far from the entertainment part of town but close to the tube.

Hi there, Thank you for leaving a review, We always try to ensure everyone has the best time at Astor Victoria. If you had any concerns or problems, always know you can come to reception at any time, we are open 24 hours a day!. We also love the close distance to all the major attractions, also we have a bus that runs 24 hours a day outside the hostel that takes you right into the centre of London which is a 15 minute bus ride! We hope you had a great time in London. Lots of Love, AV

Age limit up to 35 only is so unfair. I hope it can be reconsidered to raise it up, as to be fair and more easy to all.

No escalator. Only stairs. Really many stairs to get up to. The room is a little small. Will not recommend it if you need assistance with stairs and you are with heavy and big luggage.

Very good location, just 10 minutes walk to Victoria station! But not clean and only one toilet worket for first and second floor! It is good place to stay if you are leaving early or arriving late, in other case - not recommend..

I didn't like that I had to book online, when I was standing there in front of the staff. But all in all I had a good experience.

It was good for a hostel in London. It's clean, friendly, and in a decent location. I found it not quite as sociable as other hostels I have stayed at but I've heard that that is a side effect of the city and not the hostel. I was here for 6 nights and for seeing the city it was a pretty good place. They have events every day and the beds are super comfortable. My only real complaint is that the common space was not that large.

Pretty nice hostel in a great location. Bathrooms aren't the greatest, but was perfectly fine for a few days. There seem to be a ton of staff that hang out there, so I was often not sure who were guests and who were staff. Breakfast is a good deal too!

I had a great time, the staff was very friendly and helpful. Everything was clean and i would definitely go back. Great value for money. The only thing i didn't like as much was that the kitchen closed at 22:00.

Booked the double bed private room, extremely clean and the bed was very comfortable. Room was quite small, but not any smaller than expected for London. Staff were really lovely, would recommend and stay again, thank you!

Wonderful kitchen with lots of seating and a TV. The rooms were a little small and the drain in the sink had a mysterious clog, but other bathrooms were available. If you want to use your own lock for the under bed storage (you can rent one too) bring a large padlock, otherwise it's awkward to put it on. Good location if you want to visit Big Ben, the London Eye, Westminster Cathedral and Abbey, etc.

I've stayed in Victoria Astor Hostel for a long period of time and it's certainly one of the best hostels I've stayed in. The crew is young and it makes your stay really unforgettable. Security is not a problem. Rooms and bathrooms are cleaned all the time. Breakfast is very good. Location is unbeatable and price is also good for this location. There are various attractions organised by the staff. The good thing there are no problems with reservations. Certainly worth recommendations.

Best beds I have ever tried in all the london hostels I have stayed, quite comfortable, and very nice pillows! even "big" beds. Should have more attention to the cleaning of the toilets, nevertheless there was at least 2 clean and ready for the use. If you are looking for a place to stay, and want it close to victoria and Buckinham palace, this is the place. Excellent value for money. Excellent customer service.
