Located approx 10 mins walk from south kensington station. Great place to stay in with wifi and free breakfast every morning. The rooms were clean and there is a lounge that screens movies every night. The staffs are friendly and the building itself was beautiful. Would definitely stay here again. A+

Very good. Excellent value. Clean. Friendly staff. Really excellent location. Would definitely use the Astor group again and this one is very close to the park. Already stayed at another in the Astor group a couple of years ago. Also a magnificent building.

Good location. Good price. Clean beds and stuff. Friendly staff and people around. Breakfast included - cereals, tea, coffee, milk, bread, jam and stuff available, toasters, kettle... just all you need. Also you can leave your luggages in the locked room. Free wi-fi in some areas. We stayed one night in December 2012.

I haven't spoke to a lot of the employees but for the few ones i spoke too they were really friendly and helpful (especially Andrew). Because this hostel is in a... More
