i stayed at this place for four nights in end of june and had really great time. the soccer world cup was on and they were showing it in the bar on a really big screen which was way cool. met lots of cool people from all over, which is why i stay in hostels!

the hostel was pretty clean and they give you a free breakfast as well. it was just next to hyde park and close to two metro stations, which was a great help for getting around and seeing things.

the staff and guests were all really friendly and i managed to hook up with some travellers and do a few short trips. there was always something going on and someone to talk to.

thanks very much

I have definately loved my time at the Astor Hyde Park. Great people, a funky bar downstairs with a DJ on weekends. I'm an aussie who went for a week & has been there for months.

I definately recommend it. Great value for money.

Pretty fun if you want to meet people. Bar/club they had was closed unfortunately, but we still had drinks with people from all over the world. Really friendly staff that hung out with everyone as well. Rooms werent bad, breakfast wasnt bad for hostel food either. Any bad things were really eclipsed by the fun time i had there. Recommended!

This hostel is purely and simply the best hostel you can find!!! We met some funny people from all over the world (so crazy sometimes!) but so nice and friendly that we didn't go anywhere during our holidays in London! Staff is also very nice and helpful. Ok, the rooms aren't very clean but you finally forget it. All in this hostel make you feel good. If you want to have some fun and meet some crazy people, go at night in the ITA bar. The drinks are very cheap (2£ ??!!!) If you don't know what to do, go in the TV room !! Our best holidays and thanks to astor's Hyde Park hostel and people inside!
WE'LL BE BACK!!!

I stayed at the Astor for three nights after spending time at another hostel not far from them.
I am returning to London soon and would never consider staying at the Astor again. Once was enough.
I didn't find the staff very friendly. They were to busy being "clicky" with their buddies... and the place wasn't very clean.

For 15 pounds, I'm not going to complain about much-- well, except a paperthin mattress, so thin that the bars under the bunk bed were cutting into my body all night long-- but there were stains on the mattress for free! The place is pretty dirty and run down (not something that i would normally care about, but since the bed was awful, I started picking apart other bits of the hostel). The bonus is the location, I love queensway area. The staff were friendly and helpful (i have trouble climbing, so they got me a lower bunk).
In my opinion, there are better hostels in the same area that cost the same price.

I stayed at the Astor for a little over three months and it was the best time ive ever had. I met i heap of great people and the staff are the best, very informed and always up for a great time. Diffently stay there if you go to London its so close to all the sights especially oxford street.
