Astor Victoria Hostel Reviews

Astor Victoria Hostel provides a very nice experience for anyone exploring the city of London. This hostel does a lot of little things right, and that allows it to be considered a very good hostel.

The Location

When looking at a map, you'll find the Astor Victoria conveniently located in central London. For those arriving at the busy Victoria Station, it's just a short, ten-minute walk to the hostel. Popular sites like Big Ben and Buckingham Palace are all within walking distance. Closely located near this hostel are several attractive dining options. If looking for a cheap and convenient food option, there is a liquor and food store at the corner a block away. Individual beer cans are available for much cheaper than at your typical London pub.

Rooms and Bathrooms

There are several options when choosing a dorm room. Due to the fact that there are multiple levels, the hostel never feels too crowded, which is nice after a long day. Even when a dorm room includes a restroom, there are extra single restrooms throughout the different hallways. The staff can be seen cleaning dorms and restrooms throughout the day. Cleanliness can make or break a hostel for many people, and the Astor Victoria Hostel does a great job in this department.

Common Spaces

The largest common area includes the kitchen and dining rooms. There are two connected rooms with tables, as well as two different rooms with sinks and clean dishes. It's common to find a few travelers hanging out in the dining areas throughout the day. There are plenty of large refrigerators located in the dining rooms that are available for travelers to store food and drinks.

Next to the reception desk is a smaller living area. This room includes a computer, three couches, and plenty of electrical outlets for charging devices. It seems like this is a popular area for travelers that are waiting to be checked in or out of the hostel.


While this hostel probably won't amaze a traveler, it certainly exceeds good standards. The hostel seems to be run well with a hard-working group of staff. The location is convenient, the rooms are clean, and the hostel provides plenty of group or private rooms. Astor Victoria Hostel is a good choice for any traveler!

Awesome for the price!

Stayed for 4 nights. Right in the central of London so everything is accessible. Staff was very accommodating and friendly, some even joined us in our plans for the night.

Clean confortable and practical

It's a good option next to Victoria station. It's clean, it's big, but doesn't feel crowded. Lots of help from staff. Breakfast not so great, but ok.

A cosy, clean youth hostel at excellent location

At arrival I was pleasantly surprised of the beautiful, relatively quite location (the street is filled with stately houses) and the beautiful old victorian(?) building. The staff is very friendly and helpful, there are extra facilities free of charge (use of wifi and use of a computer, lockers) ... breakfast is included and almost every morning you are surprised by a new drawing on the chalkboard. Beds are comfy -- despite being a light sleeper and sharing a room with a person that snored I slept ok. The building looks well maintained and the common areas & rooms are quite clean for a hostel. Would use again and recommend to others.

Although the bathrooms and rooms leave something to be desired, Astor Victoria Hotel gets the job done.

The Location

Although it is not necessarily located close to any of the big tourist spots, the hostel is a few blocks away from Victoria Station, a major hub of transportation, which makes getting around fairly easy. The area around the hostel is pretty quite and feels safe. The few blocks between this hostel and Victoria Station are lined with tons of hostels and hotels. There are a few restaurants, pubs, and at least one small convenience/grocery store nearby.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms and bathrooms are clean, but it is quite a hike up several flights of stairs to get to a lot of the rooms. There are lockers underneath the bunk beds, but they can't be locked with a normal, small backpack lock (however, they are cage style, so you can lock your backpack to the locker itself). There are shelves and hangers in the rooms, along with a sink, and only two power outlets located near the door. The beds are bunk-style, but an average-sized person can't sit on the lower bunk without having to crouch. The walls and doors are fairly thin, so if other guests are noisy in the hallways, you will hear every word.

Bathrooms are located on their own floor in between the floors with the rooms, so guests must walk up or down a flight of stairs to use them. Each floor has two closet-sized rooms with a toilet and a sink, as well as two slightly bigger rooms with a shower. The water pressure isn't the best and at least one of the showers is missing a curtain, so water gets everywhere.

Common Spaces

The reception area has three couches around a table covered in magazines. The walls are covered in various tour and pub-crawl posters. Many people hang there to charge their phones using one of the power strips and to take advantage of the Wi-Fi (only found in the common areas and parts of the kitchen). There is a vending machine with candies, chips, and soft drinks for a small price. The reception desk is manned twenty-four hours a day and whomever is working caters the background music to their preferences.

Down the hall, across from the free luggage storage area is a movie/computer room. Here, there are three more couches, some desktop computers, a TV, and more power strips available for charging electronic devices. The Wi-Fi in this room is spotty depending on what device is being used. Downstairs consists of two separate seating areas, each with a small kitchen room attached. These kitchen rooms each have sinks, a stove, an oven, utensils, bowls, and microwaves can be found in the seating areas. Breakfast consists of warm buns with toppings like jam, peanut butter, and Nutella; three kinds of cereal; milk, tea, juice, and instant coffee.


The staff are all young, fun, and seem helpful. The common spaces make it easier to meet people and the all-you-can-eat breakfast will fill you up. The lack of plugs in the rooms is made up for with plentiful outlets in the common areas. Overall, it is a pleasant stay.

6 Bed Dorm Un-lockable lockers under the beds; mattress and pillow Shelves and hangers One of several staircases to reach the room Small shower room Tiny toilet room (sink behind door)

Very poor

Do not stay here. this place has a reasonable location but is a terrible hostel. The staff are rude, it smells and is dirty, and the bathrooms are disgusting. It is impossible to sleep with all wasters coming back through the night.


The hotel's location is good and the hotel's worker are quite nice (depend on who you have to talk). But the hotel itself is in bad state. The building is old and needs repairs. The bathrooms seem not so clean. However, the worst thing that we have to support was a terrible vibrating noise during three nights. They have had to change us room every night because we couldn't sleep. At the end of the stay, we ask for a refund, which was refused!
