Astor Hyde Park

London, England

The staff was super friendly and helpful, whether you're just checking in or asking for recommendations! Also very clean compared to the other hostels I've been to. I was in a 12 person dorm and there was a bathroom/shower connected on, which was very convenient. Location was good, a bit of a walk to the nearest tube stations (South Kensington or Gloucester Road), but the neighborhood is safe and it was nice to have Kensington Gardens and Hyde Park nearby. I would definitely recommend.

Smart Russell Square Hostel

London, England

You definitely get what you pay for with this hostel. It's in a nice spot, right by the Russell Square Tube station and the British Museum, but the facilities are a little lacking. The building lists to one side, and the showers are in the basement (and to find them you have to work your way through a maze of doors and hallways). I'd recommend it for a one night stopover, but not for an extended stay.
