With the bustle of central London right on our doorstep, the Astor Victoria is the ideal base for adventures in the capital. Our award-winning hostel mixes a social atmosphere (we have a spacious lounge with a projector for watching movies and sport) with comfort (like super-soft pillows). Turning up late? Our friendly staff will be at the 24-hour reception to greet you whenever you arrive. Daily events including walking tours help you meet new people and discover the city. Bonus!


You’ll find us just 10 minutes’ walk from Victoria Station, where trains and coaches from Heathrow and Gatwick airports come in. Local transport runs 24 hours, so you don’t have to worry about cutting the party short. Some of London's biggest and best sights are a short walk from the hostel – a 25-minute stroll gets you up close and personal with Big Ben, or walk 20 minutes to pose next to Buckingham Palace.

Rooms and Dorms

Head back to crash out in your hostel room. Pick from mixed or female-only dorms, or go private if you want a quieter stay. All our rooms have free, fast Wi-Fi (perfect for bingeing on your favourite show before going to sleep) and wire storage baskets under the beds – no more tripping over someone else’s backpack.

Extras and activities

With our epic all-you-can-eat breakfast (it costs just £1) you'll be all set for a full-on day, and you can make yourself at home in the fully equipped kitchen with its super-size fridge. Your stuff will be kept safe with CCTV and secure storage lockers. Want to explore before you leave, but don’t fancy lugging your case around town? We’ll look after it for you. We believe the best things in life are free, which is why we set you up with travel info, bed linen and city maps at no extra cost.

    I had never stayed in a hostel before so I wasn’t sure what to expect. It was absolutely amazing! The place was very clean, everyone was so nice (especially Ash) and I would 100% stay here again if I ever get the chance to come back to London!

    I recommend it specially if you have to make an early trip, it’s just 1 km away from Victoria rail and coach stations. Staff was nice. Rooms have big lockers, they lend you many things as hair dryer, adaptors etc free of charge. The kitchen is big. I just didn’t like the cleanliness, there was garbage on the floor around the reception area. But this hostel is very cheap so it’s worth it. Just a bit away from central London, for the main attractions you will have to take the underground.

    Great location with good security and super comfortable beds and clean rooms. There wasn’t much of an atmosphere, but I could’ve just been there at the wrong time. It IS expensive for what it is, I’ve stayed in hostels that cost the same (ish) and have much better facilities, even in London. The toilets were... interesting. Tiny, smelled of pee, and not nearly enough of them. Hot rooms and the window didn’t open. BUT awesome area, and actual good beds made up for a lot of the issues.

    I have book a single room in this hostel. Atmosphere in the hostel was very friendly and nice.The staff is very friendly and location is amazing. Metro station very close to the hostel. You could just walk to a lot of popular attractions. Room interior was nice, you have had sink, bed and shelfs. On the downside the floor in the room was dusty. And some toilets were dirty.

    Since I only needed to spend a night in London (coming from a holiday abroad and leaving in the morning to go back to Bristol), I prioritise the location over other aspects (needed a place close to Victoria Station). If I had to stay longer, I definitely wouldn't choose this hostel. I'm sorry to say the staff was disappointing. The impression was they had a kind of an excessive laid back attitude (they barely smiled). Toilets are ridiculously small and old. Only cold water in the tap.

    I stayed here as I’ve stayed at another Astor hotel which was brilliant. This one was unfortunately not as: * Shower was cold * Room and hostel both very overcrowded. Some rooms appeared to be in the process of renovation so can’t imagine it being anymore crowded. Nowhere to sit in common room * No atmosphere * Many stairs to carry luggage up and poor guy on reception was there working alone and it was very busy * Location central * Cleanliness okay * Breakfast okay
