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.

    This was my first time staying in a hostel, and I was a little nervous at the idea, but after this experience I would definitely go back next time I’m in London! The staff is amazing, the location truly is perfect, the bunk rooms have good lighting and tall ceilings because the hostel is in an old building. The lighting is good. WiFi works great. The shower area was always immaculately clean.

    The best security with two secure doors and cameras where needed! Can’t beat the location which is across the road from British Museam and a short walk to the west end ! A beautiful and quiet street! The staff are all incredible and so helpful with any need you may have! A great Fun vibe even in these challenging times. Perfectly clean with ultra comfy bedding and bathrooms. You will not beat this hostel in value for money it’s the best you can stay at without going to a hotel !

    Everything was wonderful, except one guy in the sharing room sexualy harrassed me while I was sleeping. This was absolutely not the hostel's fault but it's also true that I had a scary experience. But the staff there tried everything to make me feel better. Thank you so much.

    Due to COVID, I rented out a private room and it was a great choice for my weekend getaway in London. GREAT price as well for the location! The hostel cleaned out the rooms and bathrooms every day and made sure there was cleaning spray and paper towels in each bathroom as well as hand sanitizer. There were sinks in the private rooms so I was the only one using it. 2 blocks away from the British Museum and 10 mins away from Soho and Leicester Square. Would def. stay here again!

    Big thanks to the lovely folk at the hostel for making my trip down to London during this tricky time with COVID-19 that bit more relaxing and reassuring. They offer cleaning supplies for the room so you can ensure the surfaces you touch are kept clean. Social distancing was maintained in my dorm, by effectively operating at

    I only stayed here a night between an evening flight and morning train. I was in an all female dorm and it was fine and clean. The room was hot, bed hard, and the noise loud. Someone was vacuuming at 10pm also. Toilet not on same floor as room. The price was a bargain and location was great though. Not sure I’d stay again but was ok for a quick night.

    This review is based on how the hostel is dealing during covid. I have been to a few hostel and the way they are dealing with it is the worst. Theres no common area or kitchen at all. No fridge or kettle. The rooms are extremely basic. If the price was more economic would be better as its like sitting in a little prison at the end of the day. Staff are really friendly, location is pretty good. Hostel is small. Still had a great time in London but just be aware of this before booking.
