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.

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.

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.

    There were repair works right above my room on the highest floor. Lot of cracking, knocking and drilling! The noise was perfectly isolated for all ground and upper floors, but i was put on highest floor and could still hear everything above my room. ;) I was not happy like that.

    Clean place, lovley staff, only thing was the "second floor" where I was told my room was, was actually on the fourth floor (room 223), unfortunately no lifts so I had to drag my large duffel up 4 flights of stairs. But good room for a good price, would stay again, but request a room on the lower floors.

    The hostel is absolutely alright. Friendly stuff. Cozy atmosphere. Got a 10% promocode for the next stay which is definitely nice. The price is a few pounds higher comparing to other hostels, but u get a perfect location. Toilets could be a bit cleaner and what was wondering. there were no charching spots near the beds, so u cant use and charge your gadget being ia a bed simultaneously.

    Good location. The room was nice and comfortable but, the toilets were very dirty. Also asking someone to hand in their id till the day of check out is not a good idea.

    Pretty disappointed, especially considering high review score and for London, most with the bathroom/shower facilities, overall facilities and some of the night staff were rude. There are very few toilets and the showers were pretty unclean IMO. The beds and room itself were good and came with the storage space. Location is okay...we chose this hostel because we were using Gatwick a couple times and wanted to be close to victoria station. But not much going on in the area.

    Rooms are tiny(way to small and the beds are so close together, so you have no personal space). The bed didnt even have sheets on it. The toilet was gross and the place is generally not clean. Really poor experience, please do yourself a favor and spend the extra €10 to stay in a nicer hostel.
