Hostelworld says

Note: 18-40 yrs old only. Astor Museum won 1st Best Small hostel chain and 1st in the Lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 Hoscars! Astor Museum Inn is across the street from the British Museum in 'a classy part of town', according to one Hostelworld user. Our reviewers have praised this hostel's 'awesome, very friendly staff' who offer 'excellent service for the value'. We've noticed that this hostel sees a lot of repeat guests who seem to come back because there's 'always something going on' in this 'very chilled out' hostel with a 'relaxed and hippie' atmosphere.

    Small rooms, but comfortable. Occasionally a bit noisy and not 100% clean toilets and showers, but overall good value for what I paid.

    Great hostel and good price for the area. The room I stayed in was absolutely tiny and felt super cramped. There was no place to sit other than the beds, and I was on a top bunk so obviously that wouldn’t work. But I really liked how the room had its own sink for washing your face/ brushing your teeth. I would have also loved a sitting area— it felt like there was really no area to meet people.

    Everything fine, except 15 people in one room may be more than I can feel comfortable with, and so in future I may aim for something in the 6-8 range. Generally OK. The amount of clutter in the main hallway by reception is an obvious fire hazard about which something should be done. Staff, especially Elisa, first-rate.

    Good security, lockers under the beds. Great location and staff, in my experience, were friendly. Atmosphere was a little quiet, but breakfast was offered leaving a place to converse and COVID changes things. Bathrooms were acceptably clean for a hostel. Pretty good value for money and glad they're were offering breakfast even though most hostels seem to be using COVID as an excuse not to.

    I had a gala time staying at Astor Museums Inn The location is the best part; Right beside the British Museum, and within 5 mins walking distance of a bus stop, and 15 mins walking distance of a tube station (Holborn) The staff were great The rooms were clean, bathrooms were also tidy and well maintained My only complaint was that there weren't any shelves in the bathrooms to keep our toiletries (shower gel/shampoo bottle)

    The layout of these rooms left for no ability for anyone to store their luggage. It barely worked when the room was at half capacity, but when it was at full, the door was even blocked with people’s stuff. There was technically a lounge but it was constantly full, as well as the kitchen. There were no spaces to even stand without being in the way. I understand this is a London hostel, but I’ve stayed in many & this was one was pretty poor. I needed to extend, but instead found a new place.
