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".

I really liked the hostel. Sometimes the bathrooms were a little bit untidy but overall it was very clean. Location is in a nice area. It felt really safe. I stayed in a 9 person mixed room and I think it was not a bad choise

It was a great experience. I was glad I got an all girls room. I was suprised by how many men there were that seemed way older than 35. I booked this place becuase I thought the age limit was 35 years old.

overall the hostel was nicely located and clean. however the woman staying in the same room as us kept turning the heat up so high in the room that everyone was sweating and if someone turned it down she would turn it up. i know this is not the hostels fault but it greatly tainted our stay which was unfortunate. other than that it was pretty nice. however i also think people far over 40 yrs were staying there
