Liked: Astor Hyde Park was such a great hostel!! I was so surprised at how nice the building was! It's in a very good area, even though it's a bit of a walk from the closest Tube station. Everything was so clean. The free breakfast was good, and I was really happy that the room had an ensuite. Great value for money too!I would DEFINITELY stay here again!

Disliked: The only negative thing about this hostel is its distance from the closest Tube station, which can be a hassle if you have to carry your luggage. But apart from this small thing, it's wonderful!

Liked: Arrived at 3.30am after a late flight. Was easy to find, checkin was friendly and easy - all important when you're knackered. Didn't do much more here other than sleep, but everything was good. Clean, comfortable. Friendly french people in my room. Lounge was always packed, which is a good sign.

Disliked: All pretty good, but would be better if internet was free.

Liked: Nice area, close to Hyde Park. Helpful, friendly staff. Comfortable beds. Great common room. Good breakfast.

Disliked: Bit far from train station, fast 10 min walk. No lifts and lots of stairs. No individual bed lights so easy to wake up your room mates as you had to turn on the room lights coming in. Toilets could be cleaner. Shower head poor - water was coming out at all the wrong directions. WIFI and common computers pretty slow.

Liked: There's a great lounge, with free wifi access, computers you can pay to use if you don't have a laptop, a TV, and tons of comfy couches and chairs. The staff often show movies there during the evenings. The rooms are nice, with clean sheets on the beds and daily cleaned bathrooms. The rooms are all key-card access, and it always feels safe and secure.

Disliked: The breakfast is very pick-it-up-yourself, and you must clean your own dishes, as well as using just-rinsed dishes from other people, who sometimes don't fully clean everything off.

Liked: The atmosphere was relaxed and the staff was friendly. Quite place.

Disliked: The stairs! My buddy and I were on the 4th floor and since this is a historical building (which is cool), there is no elevator! 4 floors dont seem like much, but these are large floors and dragging up my bag after wandering around europe was pretty agonizing. If you book, try to get on a low floor unless you like hiking.

Liked: was wonderfully clean. also I felt very safe.nice old building.good service.

Disliked: paper towels or hand towels in the washroom would be very useful. also: description of walk from tube station should be clearer. It took me almost thirty minutes with heavy luggage to make it to the hostel, and I wish I'd known it was that long. I would have called for a taxi instead.

Liked: It was close to Hyde Park.

Disliked: We Stayed on the fifth floor, the air was impossibly thick. the ventilation in the room was very poor, and we felt ill during the night and the following days. It is the worst place I have ever stayed, and feel that this accommodation had a very negative effect on our time in London. Very disappointed.

12 July 2010 Gonzalo would recommend this property

Liked: It had a great kitchen where you can prepare your meals, play billard, watch TV and listen to music. Also it has free wi fi and attention 24x7. The breaksfast is not a big deal, but it is good enough to fill your "bag" (you have cereal, bread, toast machines, butter, jams, coffee or tee)

Disliked: The rooms had a bathroom inside. Obviously this bathroom was installed there to prepare the house to work as a hostel. The problem is that everything in the bathroom makes a lot of noise: water, toilet, shower, ventilation...and of course, these noises affect the ones who are sleeping in the room.
