Was quite loud at night with other hostel guests out the front. Hostel exterior was being painted so room smelt heavily of paint fumes with no ventilation. Wifi was a joke. Only got reception in the tv room. There was sufficent bathrooms and long as you planned your showers strategically out side of peak hours.

I stayed here whilst attending Notting Hill Carnival 2014 and had a great stay, staff were friendly and helpful, people staying were also great. You are provided with a cage under your beds so be sure to lock it when you leave to ensure safety or leave your bag in the luggage storage, great central location.

This hostel is getting 3 out of 5 from me purely for location and the fact that the beds are clean, if it weren't for such a convenient area I don't know if I would recommend this hostel... I stayed here for 4 nights over summer in a four bed dorm, for what I paid to be in a smaller... More

Most convenient is the hostel location, near public transportation and in front of the British museum. The staff is helpful and they maintain it clean. I recommend this hostel for couples and young people.

I really liked this hostel, had no problems with it, the room I was in was nice and big, I could charge my phone, the bed was fine, the shower was great. The only negative I can think of is the people sleeping in my room was a little noisy at night while I'm trying to sleep, but that is... More

The location for this hostel is amazing!! I gave it 3 stars just for that. It is a great spot to explore London easily! The only complaint I have is that as a solo traveler it was not the most social place to meet other travelers. I love going to Hostels and doing the shared rooms in hopes that you... More

I booked this hostel in february 2014 only for one night. I traveled from Manchester to London to see a concert. I checked in at 14:00, left my things in the room and went out. When I was back, around 23:00, there was someone in my bed. We checked with the reception and there was two bookings for the same... More

My experience at the Astor Museum Hostel was one of a kind! Not only does this hostel have a great location (I mean, 10-15 min walk to covent garden, soho, leicester square, piccadilly....), it has an awesome atmosphere. The staff are all live in which create a really cool vibe all over the hostel. Free wifi, free breakfast, free adapters,... More

To start, the Astor Museum is so centrally located that nearly anywhere you may want to go in all of London is within walking distance. The kitchen is well fitted which is great. I saved so much money making my own food in the kitchen instead of going out to eat all the time. The rooms are neat and the... More
