Liked: The staff is very friendly through and through.

Disliked: For having 12 people in a room paying 30 pounds each, I feel you can afford to have a clean bathroom and a minimal creature comforts. There is mold growing throughout the bathroom that a bit of bleach would fix, the shower head is on the fritz, and it could really use a simple fan. 12 people means that the whole bathroom is continuously damp (floor, toilet seat, mirror fogged) constantly without a fan To aerate moisture and smells!) Also there are 4 plug points for the entire room. I couldn't charge my phone once while there. No extension cords or personal small lights by the bed So people have to turn the big lights on at all hours of the night. No towels which isn't a must for a hostel, but would be a nice touch for one of these more expensive hostels. I have stayed in much better hostels.

Liked: The location is perfect and the staff is really friendly!

Disliked: You can hear the neighbours get out of their bed/take a shower/etc., so that is a bit of a pity when you want to sleep a bit longer

Liked: VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. BEAUTIFUL HOSTEL.

Disliked: We had a double room, sleeping with 2 persons on one mattress, which felt quite old (the mattress). Every time one turned around, the other one woke up due to squeaking box springs. As it is a very old house, you hear everything, especially when people walk up the stairs it sounds like the ceiling comes down immediately. On Hostel Bookers Astor Hyde Park declares to have spacious rooms, in our case, that was not the case. One had to sit on the bed to pass to the bathroom.

Liked: The staff were very friendly, and the hostel itself is very beautiful. Everything was clean and as described and there were nice, big open communal areas. The wifi works, and breakfast had a good selection. Really great location (a few minutes from the Natural History Museum and South Kensington tube station).

Disliked: Our group of 7 was split into 4/3 - this should have been completely avoided as we booked our stay a few months in advance.

Liked: The twin private ensuite was really very good: the room was bigger than expected, there was a TV and it felt a bit like in a hotel.

Disliked: There was a lot of noise from the room above us during the night. But that´s rather normal for a hostel, I suppose...:) Breakfast wasn´t that great but ok!
