Hostelworld says

Note: 18-40 yrs old only. Astor Hyde Park won 1st Best Small hostel chain and 1st in the Lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 Hoscars and it's easy to see why. It's located in the upscale neighbourhood of South Kensington beside Hyde Park and close to several of London's best museums. Guests have praised this location for being a 'wonderful area close to everything [but] also far enough away to be off the tourist trail'. One reviewer said this is 'a great hostel if you're looking for somewhere central in London without paying a fortune'. We like their relaxed, friendly staff, who we've been told are 'very helpful, personable and informative'.

Overview

With a lounge that looks more like a manor house than a hostel (with a big projector screen for watching films), Astor Hyde Park is undeniably cool. It's got the surroundings to match, too, as we're based in swanky South Kensington right by verdant Hyde Park. We've also got a £1 all-you-can-eat breakfast (we donate any money we make from it to charity) and free Wi-Fi for keeping in touch with the mates you met at your last destination. Our kitchen has huge fridges for all your food and drinks, and we've got a dining room where you can eat meals with other travellers.

Location

We're less than a 15-minute walk to the Natural History Museum, the Victoria and Albert Museum and the Science Museum (which, by the way, are all free to visit). The neighbourhood's got great pubs, shopping and restaurants – and you might even spot a celebrity or two! You can reach us in about an hour from Heathrow Airport by hopping on the Piccadilly line to Gloucester Road underground station, about a 15-minute walk from our doorstep.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll have free linen on your bed as soon as you rock up (great if you're making the most of our 24-hour reception and checking in late). Whether you choose a private room or a mixed or female-only dorm, you'll have an en-suite bathroom. Secure lockers will keep your stuff safe while you're out – just bring a padlock or borrow one from reception (just leave a deposit).

Extras and activities

We've got daily activities – ask our friendly staff what's going on while you're here – and free city maps to help you find your way about without eating into your data. There's an ATM on site to get out cash, and we'll get you discounts at local cafés and restaurants to help it go further. For a mid afternoon pick-me-up, we've got vending machines. If you need to print a ticket for a West End show, just ask – it's free of charge.

    I would definitely stay again for it’s great location, clean bathroom and never clogged sinks which is very important at the shower. My only doubt is those stairs. If your room is in upper floors be aware of you’re going to hike every time on the way back to your room.

    Overall the hostel was great, good value for money, staff was friendly and the hostel was clean. The only challenge was the lack of common areas, due to Covid restriction, but I would still stay there again if I get a chance. best, Anusha
