Location is very good, especially if you plan on going to the british museum. 10 minute walk from Leicester square area, <10mins from the Holborn tube on central line. People in the hostal are very friendly, its a nice mix of people from many locations worldwide. They will allow you to store your bags if you arrive early or leave... More

Convenient location right near the British Museum. A little pricey for what it was, but not too bad. Also a bit hard to find, especially at night. Free breakfast and everyone was quite nice. The room is very small, but does the job just fine.

The hostel may not be as large as a Genorator or a Wombats property, but it has a charm that you will never find at one of those. It's small and feels more like a home with lots of people in it. You meet so many people because of how small it is, but isn't that one of the best... More

It was on my way home Glasgow from US and need a night stay in london. People could arrive via the piccadilly line directly from LHR airport. And it is next to the british museum. Though the hotel is a bit mini, you cannot imagine how nice the staff is. You can definitely lock your valuable staff in the locker... More

The hostel is divided in two buildings that are far apart. You need to walk for 4 minutes to get from one to the other one and you do NOT get to choice in which one you would like to stay. You will find out in which one you stay when you arrive. You would be ok with that if... More

Astor Museum is really in the center of the city, although we still had to change lines a lot in the Tube. The staff was very friendly ! The kitchen is big (lots of counter space, 2 stoves, 3 fridges) and the included breakfast is good (lots of choice). The loundge was a little bit small though. Be aware that... More

The Astor Museum Hostel is located in Bloomsbury, close to the underground and central line which made it easy to access most of the common tourist sites within less than 20 minutes. You could also walk to Green Park in less than a half hour. The location seemed safe at night, and there is a small convenience store just next... More

This hostel is well run and in a great location opposite the British Museum. They clearly take security seriously from entry to the building to under bed lockers. The price is very good for London. There was a bit of noise as you might expect but not excessive. The bunk beds were reasonably comfortable and they put your name on... More

Didn't have any problems here! Literally beside the British museum, it is in an IDEAL location. Also very near the Tube. The staff was very helpful with our many questions. Fully equipped kitchen with little patio area, and decently priced laundry! Good wifi in rooms. Good atmosphere. We really liked the under the bed lockers as well which gave us... More

Staying in Bloomsbury

Neighborhood Profile
Bloomsbury
Snuggly nestled within Central London is academic and leafy Bloomsbury, an area that boasts walking distance access to many of London's most popular attractions. It is also home to some of Britain's most celebrated museums, including the must-see British Museum. Despite an understandable popularity with students, tourists and day trippers, vast sections of Bloomsbury retain a quiet, residential feel year round and throughout the week.
