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

Pro; nice kitchen. Staff extremely friednly and helpful. Nice area of town. Convenient. Right beside museum. Con:breakfast is cramped. Door at 2nd site doesnt close properly. Sadly we were 2 and we got 2 separate bunks. Should have gotten one on top of each other.

It's perfect to stay there for few nights if you need to be near to city center for less cost, otherwise, it's not a great place. Number of toilets are no suitable for number of gusts or beds. Place is narrow, creepy and I felt not comfortable there. To be honest, I didn't used any of there facilities like dining... More

I stayed 3 nights in a 6 beds dorm. Bed was comfy and clean but the lockers under the beds were too noisy and hard to open. I had to push the bed up (with someone sleeping on) to free my drawer. There are no plugs on the top bed height which means if u want to charge ur phone... More

The location is optimal, very close to London centrum! Thats perfect because you can nearly reach everything by walking. The stuff was nice and gave the information needed. The breakfast is indeed only 0.50 pounds, which is unbelivable. You can't expect a super amazing breakfast but astor museum hostel provides everything you need for the start into the day. The...

Its run by lovely other young people.They were great to hang with and they were very helpful. I was in the other building about a minute away, which I thought would be annoying but it wasn't. The free breakfast was great. Beds were a tiny bit uncomfortable but the rooms were otherwise good. It was rather expensive but everything in... More

Awesome hostel in a typical London townhouse style place. Staff was incredibly friendly. Perfect location: You can easily walk everywhere. Regarding the rats: The building next door got demo'ed, so they had rat problem last month. It's not a problem anymore. The place is very clean, very comfortable.

Hostel is in an ideal location, you can walk to most London attractions in less than 30 minutes (lots of transport options too). Rooms were clean and comfortable, the lockers under each bed were very handy, though you need to bring your own lock. Kitchen was big with everything you need to cook a meal, and breakfast for 50p was... More
