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.

For our good neighbour policy we have to close one kitchen at 22.30 but there's the other one open until late. Hopefully we will see each others again in the enchanting London, always @ Astor Victoria Hostel. Lots of Love, The Astor Victoria Family!

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.

Easy going atmosphere and nice, helpful staff! Clean rooms and linen. (The breakfast isn't free as is suggested when booking, but it's 0.5£ and is for helping the homeless.) Remember to bring a pretty big pad lock for the cage under the bed, a small one won't be enough.

Very frienldly staff and very close to the city "center". It was very quiet while my stay but the hostel was just half booked out. I am sure it can be a lot noisier if its fully booked out but nevermind.

I don't think I can ever recall a place where I could actually hang out with the staff (you guys know who I am) thanks for introducing me to the nightlife scene of London, one of the most memorable places I have stayed during my road trip so far

For what you pay for, it's a great hostel. It's affordable and really well located, staff are helpful and it's very clean. Breakfast is basic but good. The showers are really small though, which sometimes makes it difficult to move around when having a shower. The movie room is excellent with a wide range of films to choose from. Overall I've enjoyed staying at Astor Victoria.

The location was excellent and the staff were friendly and helpful. There are cages underneath the beds to put your stuff in which you can lock. The shared showers are ok. The in-room ones are too tiny and no place to hang your clothes in a room full of strangers, so didn't use it at all. The beds are clean. Recommended.

Thanks Astor team! Was pretty good in your home, considering it is a hostel and not a hotel. I will definitely back to you if I will need a place to stay in London ;)

Great staff (and attractive, too!) and great atmosphere. Stayed for a couple of nights and switched my hostel another night to extend my stay. They allow luggage storage at no cost - which was great use when I left the city for two days and returned for one more night. Excellent kitchen facilities. Only improvement could be the spotty WiFi in the downstairs rooms and the occasional unclean bathroom/shower that doesn't drain well. Overall an awesome stay!
