Brigette Duckworth thinks…

"While the location is exceptional and the facilities clean and well managed, it is truly is the staff that make this place unique. I've stayed at quite a few hostels across Europe these past two…"

Liked: Staff are super friendly (probably cos they're all Australian). The hostel is in a good location, just a 5-min walk from Pimlico Station as advertised. As a foreign solo female traveller, I found the hostel to be very accommodating and inviting and the area around the hostel itself is safe to walk around at night. The rooms and beds are fairly clean. Showers were hot at all times and didn't have to wait as long as they're avoided during the rush hours (early morning and early evening).

Disliked: Sucks if you're located on the top (4th) floor because the stairs seem to just go on forever!

Liked: Close proximity to Victoria station.

Disliked: It simply lacks character. Its sister hostel Astor Kensington is far more better. Some of the staff was marvelous, some was horrible. I really disliked notices and numerous Dos and Don'ts posted all over the place and this is something that pretty much ruins the atmosphere.

Liked: Hostels is quite average hostel. Location is good. I did like the clean toilets and showers without ques. Staff had always time to answer my questions.

Disliked: There was no big lockers where to put photographing gear without unpacking the bag. Small safes they have, and cases under the bed with a padlocking option. Hostels felt safe anyway and camera gear didn't disappear even if it wasn't locked anywhere.

Liked: The location was quite easy to get to. And there is a regular bus service that passed in front of Astor Victoria. Sitting on that bus was like taking a tour of London's sites (ie: Westminster Cathedral and Abbey, Big Ben, Tralfagar Square).Too bad we only found out about it on our last day there.The hostel rooms and toilets were clean. Breakfast was simple; bread, butter, jam, cereals, ham, cheese, but it's more than sufficient. You can even buy your own stuff to cook there, which helps in reducing cost.There's Tesco and Sainsbury which was 5 minutes walk away. So buying groceries was easy.

Disliked: Can hear conversations from next room quite clearly if they spoke loud enough.
