Liked: We were in a hostel at the beginning of March this year! Really liked the attitude of the staff, very clean and friendly place. 10 minutes from several underground stations and close to many attractions!

Liked: I have stayed in Astor Hyde Park two times now - and I'll definitely be going back again. The staff is very friendly, always ready to help. The location is amazing, because many attractions are within a walking distance (Natural History Museum, Hyde Park, Holland Park, Portobello Road Market, Harrods, etc.) Since last spring they had really improved on cleanliness, and there were more plates and cups in the kitchen. Also, there is now a door phone system, which definitely adds to the security of the place.

Disliked: There isn't really much to dislike. There was a party in the kitchen on a Thursday night, and the music disturbed us a bit since we were staying in a room right above. However, it's not something they do often, so it's okay (and a good opportunity for those who want to party).

Liked: The rooms are clean and comfortable. Location is alright, neighborhood is nice

Disliked: Lacked atmosphere. There seemed to be about a dozen employees living there, but there was never anything going on. It was like it was there place and they just let other people stay there for a few days at a time. They also were never very specific when I asked questions like where to find a store for this or that. They always just said, "oh yeah go down to the street and walk that way and you'll find something", strange.

Liked: Close to tube, close to Hyde park. Free breakfast is nice.

Disliked: Stairs, very noisy from street and broken window, noisy bunks and lockers underneath were very loud when trying to access early in the morning. Bathroom not very clean, no soap in bathroom. Kitchen was nice to use if you bring your own food, but it was very very messy and no clean dishes later in he evening as other travellers did not clean up after themselves. Lounge was ok but always busy and nowhere to sit.
