Extrêmement sale et foutage de gueule
Plutôt pas mal !
Very friendly staff and good location
nice and clean
For young adults
Friendly atmosphere and easy to make friends.
Very disapointed !
Nice pub, clean and comfortable.
Really good area, and very close to Clapham Junction train station.
My flight was delayed so I arrived in the middle of the night, but there was still someone in reception when I arrived who checked me in. The bed and bedding was very clean. Includes breakfast, so great value for money. Good location, easy to find. The road seemed quiet and safe at 2am.
The area is very nice with many things to do and close to supermarkets
Not a great experience...
Top to spend 2-3 days in London alone or with friends qques
The hostel is situated above a pub, which creates a nice atmosphere. The bus stop is just outside the hostel and it is therefore easy to get to/from the centre of London. The neighbourhood seems safe and as two young girls we did not at any point feel intimidated, scared or discriminated - also at night. There are several shops (including an ASDA and McDonalds) very close by, which we thought was really nice. The hostel is in zone 2 and it is therefore quite cheap to get to the centre with either bus or the tube. In general, the hostel is great value for money.
Free breakfast. The pub bellow/
The description is accurate and we made contact before to make further enquiries and the staff we so helpful, even reducing the amount of people to booking was so well received and the guys were so polite , I would recommend this accommodation.
I liked that they had free breakfast. And that it's very cheap and their workers are very nice
I do not recommend
Very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful
Helpfull staff, breakfasts included, low price:)
Definitely a lot cleaner that I expected it to be, I liked that there were private and shared bathrooms as well. Perfect location with a bus stop right out the front + buy 1 get 1 free burgers
Easy to find
The location is very great
Lovely atmosphere down in the Pub
Location,luggage room downstairs.
Hostel very friendly, friendly, clean with all the necessary comfort
Cool, modern environment with friendly, approachable staff.
Incredible selection of alcohol, and, the chips they serve are some of the best I´ve had! Lovely brioche buns with the Burger too.
I have stayed at this hostel 4 times now and every time it's seems to fall into a worse state of disrepair. It's been rebranded from 'fresh' however now looks cheap and nasty. I still enjoy he atmosphere but it's really going down hill! Glad to see that they have got rid of te supermarket pizza which cost £8!! While in te supermarkets its between 2-4!!
The atmosphere at the pub downstairs was nice.
good value for money
forbidden to minors!
Nice place to crash
Rather satisfying, but a bit stuffy
Good WiFi throughout. Clean.
Stayed for a night and it was good value. Good location as it was 10min walk from Clapham Junction, the quality of the facilities and the free breakfast was good. Staff were quite helpful. The hostel is not too far from the areas of nightlife in Clapham, either walking or by public transport.
The bedding was very clean and so too were the showers. Unfortunately there is an odour in some of th bathrooms due to damp.
Good reception, impeccable bedding and nice breakfast !!
Not far from the center, good reception and clean! Perfect for a short getaway to London
Pleasant stay for a few nights in London
The common area was nice! The coaches look infested with God knows what, but the tables and chairs are super nice!
good location and attractive price
The lobby area, we could choose a movie and just watch it on the coach when it started raining outside. There were also books, computers and a pool table.
The price was very compatitible considering the location. We walked every day beside the river seeing Londons most popular attractions.
The breakfast was included! We were served cereals, müsli, toast, tee and coffee, a great way to start a day!
The Atmosphere was peaceful
Location ok for exploring London. Reading lights over beds.
Very good location
good value for money
Good location, staff polite, glad of the all female dorm option. Clean and had basic requirments
Good location, cheaper than our other options
brilliant location, it was simple but had everything you could possibly need!
General perception: TOP
There was almost always a free shower and toilet. The 15-bed room I stayed in had a wall in between, so that it didn't feel like it was TOO packed. Cool people staying there! (some played guitar in the kitchen in the evening) The location is ok, but not too close to the London Eye - check the map beforehand if this is a criterion for you.:)
Enough space and kind and social environment
Location and good showers.
The location was perfect and the staff were very friendly and very helpful, overall a very clean, friendly and safe place to stay.
The hostel is clean & have everything for the basic needs. It was affordable and cozy for backpackers and travellers who wanted the best for less. This hostel is more than I expected.
I did not like anything
Great location (5 min walk from the subway), the beds are cleans and comfy, the common room was good too. Quiet hostl.
Staff, atmosfere, cleanliness
The location, the breakfast.
Great kitchen space, nice big common room. Comfortable, clean beds and room. The staff were amiable. It was cheap too, although make sure you book online in advance!
ok for a short stay
To sleep take another hostel
Everyone staying in a hostel in a London needs to be aware that the standards are much lower than anywhere else and thus to have more modest expectations. In my twelve-bed dorm on the second floor at least, the triple bunks were much nicer than others that I have slept in in London. The sheets were white and clean, the beds were not too close (one along each wall) and with the window open the room was a comfortable temperature. The common room is not as sociable as that in hostels elsewhere, but it was quite large and better than others I have seen in London. The location is good for London: you can walk to the centre if you are not lazy. Although it could be larger and newer, the shower actually had good strength and temperature.
The fact that the staff were really friendly
Close to central London
Excellent staff and an all round great feel to the hostel. The staff were absolutely incredible, telling us what to do in the area, and were great to have a laugh with. Whilst breakfast was simple, it had everything you needed - a range of cereals and toast. At a great price, I would definitely go back again! P.S. Do the pub crawls they suggest, they were fantastic to say the least!
Zone 1 central London location. Very safe neighbourhood.
5 minute walk to Earls Court Tube/Metro Station (Piccadilly Line and District Line). Lots of bus routes.
Short walk to Holland Park , Kensington Gardens, Hyde Park and Kensington High Street.
Food shop and launderette both 30 seconds walk away
SoHostel is on Dean Street, linking Soho with Oxford Street. Most of the main tourist sights of London are walkable but if you’re feeling lazy, Tottenham Court Road tube station is less than five minutes’ walk away with Oxford Circus not much further. We’re also surrounded by bus routes if you want to see the city from one of our world-famous double deckers.
Un personnel très accueillant. Le petit déjeuner et le dîner gratuit. L'auberge est très bien située ( métro, restaurant, boutique...). Et l'ambiance est superbe et conviviale.
Proche du métro et des commodités j'ai prit une chambre double privée pour 3 jours. Espace suffisant pour 2 personnes. Salle de bain petite mais on y passe pas des heures ! On était côté cour et ce n'était plus très bruyant à partir d'une certaine heure.
The meal offered is nice for cons for lunch "offered" will iron no food consistent (milk, coffee, sweet) orange juice and fruit juice is over if it remains a place to sleep showers have no shelves just two small doors coats and a door The water was boiling No cold water the rooms are not spotless in the state but it's ok
THE COMMON SPACES ARE TAKEN CLEAR BY THE RESPONSIBLES, BUT THE HOSPELERS END WITHOUT RESPECT; THE ONLY BEMOL WAS THE STREET NOISE ONLY ON A WINDOW TOO FINE ... BUT I LOVE THE CONCEPT OF THE YOUTH HOMES, I prefer that the hotel, despite my 50 years. it is a good way to travel by meeting other nationalities, and open to the outside.
Very pleasant stay
The dorms were clean. Staff friendly and close to public transportation.
This hostel is well connected to the tube and is fairly clean.
room of 2 at Saint James Backpackers
Very small 3 bedroom that looks like a hallway
Pleasant stay with family I recommend
Very nice hostel
Well located but dirty
A nice address but it can improve
Pretty good without more. Household can present. But it was good
Etions une famille de 6 dans un dortoir 6 lits avec salle de bain privative. Lits superposés assez raides mais bien pour dormir. Casier pour ranger ses affaires sous le lit prévoir cadenas si vous êtes avec des inconnus . Rien pour poser ses affaires dans la salle de bain/wc. Bruyant le soir et la nuit (très mal isolé phoniquement)
Petit déjeuner en plus, bon sans plus 6£ continental 7 £ anglais
Superb hostel in the heart of SoHo's effervescent district
Very good hostel but some disappointments
Very pleasant stay
Very nice establishment. Very well located. Very nice team.
With the British Museum literally on its doorstep, it is impossible to beat this hostel’s location! Located in the very heart of Central London you are a short walk from iconic attractions like Piccadilly Circus, Trafalgar Square and Covent Garden.
It doesn’t matter if you are shopping down the legendary Oxford Street, watching a play in Leicester Square’s world famous theatre district, having dinner in China Town, drinks in Soho, or partying in the West End you are always a short walk home to
Living life like a London local. The Exmouth Arms, located 5 minutes away from Euston Station and Euston Square Station gives you the opportunity to mingle with London locals.
Well located, clean, functional
Excellent moment passé dans cette auberge de jeunesse! Le personnel hyper sympas et le lieu tres bien tenu! Le petit dej le matin pour £1 était bien complet avec en prime des bons pancakes :)
Je recommande et y retournerai!
No problems for two girls traveling for the weekend.
Great establishment! very welcoming !
Very well !!!
good value for money
Good hostel, very nice staff
nice, affordable, clean, convenient
It was in a quiet part of London but close to the heart of the city
Very nice stay!
Pleasant, well placed and good atmosphere.
Amazing location and crew !
Well located hostel, welcome
Friendly and warm
Staff are super helpful and travellers are nice that the atmosphere was warm you don't want to leave!
The staff were super friendly and helpful, and the facility was perfect for a hostel. Great atmosphere and good location. Super easy to find and close to many metro stations!
staffs were very friendly.
Nothing at all this was the worst hostel I have ever stayed in.
After reading previous reviews I was doubtful about staying here. The mention of horrible staff and rats kinda got me worried. However that was not the case at the Astor Museum Inn. The staff were super helpful and friendly. Breakfast was basic, but exactly what you would expect. Anything you needed; locks, chargers etc was readily available and you were not charged, just had to leave a deposit! Highly recommend!!!
Location, location, location! Plus 1 pound breakfast was great (proceeds to charity). Was just cereal, yoghurt, spreads and toast but it did the trick. Walking distance to everywhere, close to underground stops, in a really wonderful area. Was a good ratio of guests to bathrooms, never had to wait for the shower or toilet.
Friendly stuff, wonderful position, good breakfast
Very nice place to stay, friendly staff, well located. Overall excellent experience
Fantastic location, staff were very friendly and helpful
beware this hostel does not take people over 35
My favorite address in London
The staff was super friendly all the time, they really care about helping you on how to get around london, seriously this was the best staff that I've seen in a hotel.
In a great location, across the street from the British Museum, with easy access to the rest of Central London. Building has character, being a large, classic town house. Stayed there on two occasions, and both rooms I have stayed in have been very large with plenty of space and under bed storage.
Ideal for a London outing
Good atmosphere with a good location
Awesome staff, very helpful. Great location! Right next to the British Museum. The bed was comfy.
The staff were always available to help and communal areas were good for solo travellers.
Location was amazing! The staff was wonderful and the rooms were well kept and clean. Safety was great!
Clean, friendly and helpful staffmembers, reallly good location in central london!
very clean and very good stuff, breakfast on sunday was excellent
Nothing not to like! The only thing is room no 1 should have a heater cos its a bit cold at night. Other than that everything is awesome!!
It was really close to everything and there were basically all services you could think of needing during the trip.
Very pleasant stay
Nice staff, Good Location, Good Value
Very helpful staff and very well located
Hostel well located, I recommend it !! :)
They separated us
Genialna lokalizacja, skromne warunki
Auberge très bien située
Rien à voir avec les photos.
Mauvais accueil, à une heure tardive j'en convient, mais ce n'est pas une raison quand il y a quelqu'un pour cela.
Les sanitaires sont salles (pas lavés pendant 3 jours)
Quant à la chambre... Rien à voir avec les photos du site.
8 lits dans une chambre de 15 m2. Mur moisis, poussière et rideau qui tombe... Heureusement que nous étions 7 et que nous nous connaissons.
Le pub est à éviter
Dommage l'emplacement est bien.
Un seul sourire, celui de la serveuse blonde le jour où nous sommes partis.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour au PubLove. Les chambres et les différents équipements étaient propres et correctes. Juste peut être une petite tablette dans les douches en plus du porte manteau serait un plus non négligeable. Malgré tout l'auberge et le pub en dessous étaient biens
The location of the hostel indicated by the app is the opposite of the actual location of this hostel. Result: surprise when arriving at the airport, and change of program at the last moment !! I will no longer use this youth hostels app
Pros: the location is good, easy access, quiet at night, the bar is nice and we have discounts being resident. Cons: The heater did not work in our room, only one bathroom with the toilet in it for a whole floor. A bathroom is half floor unheated and in a rough state. The bathroom on our floor (at the top), little heat (the problems of English and simple glazing), mold on the ceiling and on the walls, no place where our clothes hang during the shower. No cooking possible since the pub is downstairs, so obligation to eat outside or at the pub (even if the food is good). I thought the place is nice, but it's not really a hostel, it's more like a pub with rooms for rent.
Value for money
Located in central London, The Green Man in Paddington is only a 5 minutes walk to Paddington Station and on the doorstep of Edgware Road Station, with trains taking you to all local attractions and famous sites throughout London.
Only minutes away from sights such as the Tower Bridge, the Tower of London and the City Hall, it's an easy walk from the buzzing nightlife of Shoreditch and next to Wilton's Music Hall; the location is just awesome for young travellers.
Very friendly and warm welcome!
Stay of 3 nights in mixed room and international, of 9 people
Have a nice stay in London
Very nice, nice staff, and very clean
great hospitality, great location!
Really very well located.
Very basic and expensive
Bonne auberge mais faites attention aux puces de lit !
Très bien placé juste à coté de l'entrée du métro !
It is centrally located and it is clean all right. Free breakfast, as long as you get there before 10 AM.
Light breakfast included. Downstairs showers are nice. You can eat your own food in the bar. Grand for one night.
It is very close to the tube station edgware road and this is great. It is really in a pub and tough i first thought it could be more something like a pub, I must say it is a proper pub where you get discount as hostel guest.
The staff. They were as helpful as possible under the circumstances.
Good location (next to tune stop) and fun atmosphere.
All they say about the pub having a good range of drinks is true and it can sometimes be a lively and sociable atmosphere. The gourmet burgers are also delicious and worth it if you can afford to pay almost as much for a burger as for your bed for the night.
Pub below is fairly nice.
the location is great and it's nice to have a bar to be able to mingle with other guests and locals alike.
Great pub downstairs - burgers and good beer
decent place to stay
I liked staying at the Green Man because it was fine for my stay. It was cheap, location was really good, people were friendly and sociable and also the staff were helpful, in particular Sam and Jack.
Also, at the bar they serve burgers, and some nice beers.
It is also a really good hostel to meet people, as the bar is quite sociable and people makes friends there easily, so a good hostel for people traveling.
Generally, a really good stay and I would not hesitate to stay at the Green Man again, or recomend it to a friend.
Amazing!! The hostel is located right next to the Waterloo tube station, so getting around is extremely easy. The staff is wonderful, they always recognized and said hello as I walked into the bar, remembering that I was a patron of the hostel. They are all super easy going, very helpful with any questions, and if there's a problem upstairs they immediately leave the bar and help fix it to the best of their ability. They were also super welcoming, inviting everyone out on the town as if we've been friends for years. The building had an old world charm, like an antique house. The showers get very hot and there are plenty to go around. Also, the bar! They have an amazing selection of local gin and beer, and the food is DELICIOUS. I wouldn't have eaten anywhere else if I wasn't trying to get a taste for the city of London as a whole. Plus, 10% off if you're staying at the hostel, what more could you ask for!
Staff is very friendly and helpful
Everything is kept very clean.
Fabulous place, easily better than other hostels for the same price. Fun and helpful staff and the food is just as excellent. Defiantly can't say no to free WiFi and 10% off everything that you can buy (Food, Beer, Coffee etc).
Location is pretty good, just up the road from Marble Arch Station and the corner of Hyde Park, easy route to places like Madam Tussauds or other big stations such as Kings Cross or Paddington. Plus it is on the Circle, District and Bakerloo line which takes you in and out of the best spots in London.
I have extended my stay quite a few times here and would no doubt re-book this hostel the next time I need to stay the night in London. Not only that but I have also recommended the Green Man to a few of my friends not just to stay but also the pub itself as they have a good selection alcohol.
Location and the pub below
Central and cheap, little space.
Good atmosphere and location.
Awesome love the 24 hour bar and great people and staff!!
The location and the price is good.
Very convenient and central location. The pub had great food and a almost decent pint of Guinness.
Good personal experience
The wifi is secure and it's close to the Bakerloo line.
can do better ...
Very good location, maybe toilets and showers could be more cleanness (but it caused by guests who left dirty..) and breakfast more plentiful.
but for the prize was good!
the pub was amazing and the new showers at first floor are very fine!
Triple bunks, no floor space not enough facilities for guests
cheap, free breakfast, free laguage storage
I love this hostel! Easiest 10/10. Don't judge me, but I just started staying at hostels lately. Hav stayed at some, and this is the nicest one so far. Close to the subway, really clean hostel, the staff are really nice and always ready to help, breakfast is really really good and cheap. So glad found this one!
Clean hostel. Great staff, very kind and helpful. Spacious common area. Serves delicious breakfast. Reliable WiFi. Good location and price. Cozy. Will come back!
With Victoria station and Victoria Coach Station just a 5-minute walk away and piles of things to see and do from The Houses of Parliament, Westminster Abbey, Buckingham Palace and Victoria Palace Theatre all walkable distance away, you’ll get to discover the streets of London.
With Victoria Station and Buckingham Palace a few minutes’ walk away, it is hard to beat to this location! Amazing 24-hour transport links to attractions, parties, airports, coaches (to the rest of the UK/Europe), and almost anywhere! Astor Victoria is the dream place for a base in London.
The excellent local markets, restaurants, pubs, vintage stores, coffee shops and galleries, all within a 15-minute walk of Big Ben, will make you feel like a true Londoner! This, combined with staff whom love
we stayed three nights in this hostel ... it is dirty and neglected .... no ventilation in the dormitories where we were 24 ... the condensation was oozing along the windows (which are doomed) and along the walls .. the toilets were clogged, as well as the showers ... too much negligence !!!
This hostel is nice. The staff is available. The only negative is the showers.
The Pub is nice decor, great atmosphere, and the staff is friendly and helpful. But it gets bad once you walk through the doors for the hotel. The facilities are dilapidated, cleanliness doubtful, sanitary do not talk about it. No common room to sit outside the pub, so with the obligation to consume if you want to ask to discuss. The free breakfast offered in the morning is just to avoid: instant coffee, bread or cereals, no orange juice, no jams, just butter to put on. So for one night, it goes, it's cheap. But otherwise...
Less than 18 years old, unclear information and discovery upon arrival
Comfy youth hostel
good, nice english atmosphere
Great for a short stay only, Good location close to Victoria Coach station by bus C10
Very good hostel
Nice place to stay
Great stay, great atmosphere
+++ Location / + staff / -building / -owness
Very good hostel
nice but watch out for showers
location and the crowd - friendly, mature, fun
It is very close to the Victoria Station and located in a nice and quiet area.
Central location, only 5 minutes from Victotia coach station, 8 minutes away from Victoria tube station, breakfast included with the price.
It's lovely that there's a pub downstairs where you can either have your own food or choose from their menu, the beds are comfy and it's overall clean, location is great too
1) Excellent way to meet other travelers
2) Great value
terrible experience. very dirty hostel. I would never recommend this to a friend.
Nothing really. it has a great location
Location, staff friendly and helpful
really friendly and welcoming, very convenient for Victoria Coach station
Location - 10 minutes walk to Victoris Station, 20 min walk to Buckingham Palace!
Pub - very nice pub, many different beers, tasty burgers
Rooms - we stayed in a 12 bed dorm and there was enough space for everybody
Breakfast - enough coffee, tea, juice, cornflakes and toast
Practical, but dirty and sleepy
location - close to Victoria station and on bus route.
Nice and not far from the center
close to victoria station
Fantastic and friendly staff. Great location. Beautiful food. Comfortable beds and good bathroom facilities
White Ferry is a nice, quiet hostel. Great location, friendly staff, and good value for money.
comfortable and clean beds, fairly good location, staff was helpful with a check-out problem of mine
5th of 8 hostels that I visited.
Bad surprises !!!
Very Nice Hostel
The White Horse has a good location walking distance from Victoria Station and Coach Station. The public spaces are quite nice, but could use more power outlets.
Auberge correcte niveau qualité/prix
Close proximity to Victoria coach station.
Good value. Its a bit of a trek but not too far from Victoria station. Its a really great building and in a pretty good neighborhood.
Very friendly staff, good breakfast & above a pub. Excellent value, one of the best values in London for a couple of years
close to victoria stations
Really good location, literally 5 mins from the coach station, cool staff so an awesome welcome when you arrive.
Bon emplacement - Auberge correcte
white ferry house
Pour une premiere experience : super, je reviendrais
Hostel very well located, nice, but average comfort
Great stay I recommend.
Fantastic food in the downstairs pub (discount for guests), very secure and fantastic location, very clean dorms
Pour une 1ère dans une auberge de jeunesse je recommande: l’accueil est top, l'emplacement idem ( à 10 minutes à pied de la station de métro Victoria) & le quartier très "secure". Nous étions 2 filles et aucun soucis pour rentrer dans la nuit à pied.
La propreté est plus que correcte. Nous n'avons pas pris le p'tit déj mais à savoir qu'ils demandent 1£ qu'ils reversent à une association et je trouve ça top.
Photos un peu trompeuses, les locaux ne sont pas très propres.
I recommend it
The team on site is super cool! Good information for example for activities and night outings.
this property does not accept families
Great team, great atmosphere!
Really good stay.
The hostel is really good
Its was nice to be welcommed by a helpful friendly staff member.its in a good locATION not noisy at night and very importantly room was very clean!
Convenient, nice and cheap hostel close to Victoria station
Very good location
people are friendly at the desk
friendly staff and nice athmosphere
VERY clean. Also appreciated a smaller room size and female-only rooms. Great atmosphere and staff were flexible with booking dates and deposits. I would definitely recommend this place.
Friendly staff, clean hostel with nice atmosphere)
Good location close to Pimlico, Victoria station! and cheap price. Friendly staff and free atmosphere
Location, facilities, staff
They had plenty of in room secure storage, the staff were friendly and welcoming and helpful. The common rooms, kitchen, showers and toilets were always clean.
Great range of movies and TV shows. Comfortable atmosphere loved my stay. Will definitely be staying there when I return to London
It is by far the best hostel in London. Large rooms (even most 8-bed rooms are big enough so one can still move), the beds are super comfortable. The staff is great and super friendly and helpful, the toilets are cleaned regularly - the floors of the rooms are also hoovered daily, but are often dirty nonetheless. The location is fantastic, they have everything you could wish for in case you've forgotten anything essential. Free tea/coffee 24/7 and snacks as well as fresh mint water are available at the reception.
bed and bedspreads was the best
The location is very good. Very close to Victoria Station and another tube station as well. And it is only a 15min walk to two of the main museums, and to Hyde and Green Park.
The staff was very friendly and you can borrow chargers and padlocks.
It was quiet, clean and the beds were surprisingly comfortable for a hostel.
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 months, but this is the only one where the staff made an effort to learn my name, my story and go above and beyond to make sure I got the most out of London. As a solo traveller on my first trip to Europe this made my time in London unforgettable. If you're traveling alone the nightly activities like pub crawls, movie nights and heading out to massive London clubs makes its so much easier to meet new people!
Great location, helpful staff and free printing came in really useful for us having forgotten to print tickets for a gig!
Breakfast was very good considering the price
Lots of things going on in the hostel
We are very satisfied
very helpful staff, great location (close enough to Victoria station, which is very convenient) and great atmosphere. lovely hostel in every way
Very good hostel, very friendly staff, helpful, well located, offering activities
cozy and comfortable :)
Everyone is friendly here and it's an easy going environment, staff are available 24/7
Nice staff, good location
Very very good
The showers were great. And breakfast was very good, too.
Our hostel is located in Nothing Hill gate, a 10-minute walk to the famous Portobello Road and right on the door step of Hyde Park and Kensington Gardens, home to Prince William and Kate Middleton! A charming, safe and beautiful area to explore London from, Astor Queensway is a home away from home.
The place to stay in London! The Steam Engine is a hop, skip and jump away from London’s main attractions. Head towards the river to see London in all its glory. Walk between Big Ben, the London Eye, museums and more – and don't forget to get that perfect selfie! #PubLove
Clean, affordable hostel with careful and useful staffs. There is a joyful atmosphere and it is well located. I had an amazing time at Astor ! Shared rooms are spacious enough and mine had an ensuite bathroom. They have useful facilities such as free lockers, a luggage storage.
Super auberge, personnel ultra sympa, bien placée, quartier calme, je recommande :)
Perfect place to stay in London, quiet neighbourhood and great location !
une auberge pas chère, bien placée et des chambres propres. Rapport qualité-prix correct. Mais l'immeuble est beaucoup trop petit pour le nombre de chambres. L'équipe (qui vit sur place dans un dortoir) est plutôt sympa.
I stayed in the hostel with a friend for a week-end and we had a great moment, it was clean and our room had just been renovated. The location is also great - alongside Hyde Park - and 2 minutes walking from the nearest Underground station (Queensway). Also, people at the reception were lovely to us !
Very good stay of two nights in this hostel, great friendliness and warmth of staff as spaces. As they say, very good value for money, with what more is a rather full breakfast. Would recommend it as a good base for discovering the great English metropolis.
OK overall, well located
Très bonne expérience sur cette auberge. Bon accueil, staff disponible et souriant, auberge calme et très propre. Également très bien placée. Seul bémol : wifi pas toujours très performant. Mais les chambres disposent de grands casiers où on peut aisément tout mettre dedans !
Plutôt propre, personnel accueillant mais beaucoup trop bruyant surtout car notre chambre était en rez-de-chausée juste à côté des toilettes où tout le monde allait. On avait parfois l'impression que les gens rentraient dans notre chambre tellement c'était mal isolé.
The hostel is well located, between Paddington Station and Hyde Park. The staff is friendly and at our disposal. We had a pleasant stay.
Staff members were super friendly, always kind and smiling. Hostel street and the parallel one are full with hostels but there's a great and calm atmosphere, in a gorgeous area. The place was not the cleanest in the world, but it was acceptable. My room door was giving me problems and my key-card didn't work, so I had to keep knocking so my roommates would open. The toilets are separate from the showers. In the room there's a sink with a mirror, next to the bunk-beds. The only negative thing would be the noise from the same hostel, although it was not too loud, and the general messyness. Also, there was only one socket in the bedroom for 5 people.
I like this hostel because this is close to Hyde park and it has a good vibe.
This hostel is well located and the staff is fantastic.
Great staff who seemed to be really knowledgeable about London and all their advice was spot on!
good atmosphere, close to the city center
Great customer service by the staff, very helpful in providing useful tips. Also great location.
Nice staffs and great location!
I really love the location and the staff are helpful.
There is a lockable drawer under each bed for us, and it is very considerate and useful. It helps in a great deal when we pack and especially I lived for a few days.
Clean and safe property, well located nearby MRT and many good eateries.
The Tube (Queensway and Baywater stations) were literally around the corner and the bus stop was at the end of the street as well. furthermore it was just across the street from Kensington Gardens.
The property itself was lovely, quiet (although it was full as expected in London in July) and the staff was very nice)
Good location and very helpful staff. I had to cancel a night one night of my booking and they were completely flexible and lovely about it.
Great value for money
This hostel provides an amazing social atmosphere due to its large common rooms and nightly social activities. The staff was really helpful and friendly as well, I can't wait to come back in the near future!
Relatively good breakfast including freshly baked buns. Decent pans to cook. And for the rest it is like any good hostel.
The staff is very nice, they help you all the time. The breackfast it is perfect.
Very helpful staff and nice building. Our room was pretty small, but it's okay. After all, it is a hostel.
very nice staff, common room
Location, silent, calm atmosphere, nice people
Nice staff clean room
Great location nearby Hyde park and main metro lines
You were actually able to open the windows!!! And the rooms were bigger than other hostels (I was in a room for 8 people).
The staff were amazing!!! So kind and helpfull. It was like meeting friends!
I've stayed at a lot of hostels in London, and this was the greatest!! I will be back for sure!
good value for money
Staff are awesome. location is great so easy to get around London. Kitchen facilities are the best I have come across for a hostel
The staff is very friendly anf helpful, nice location
Lock up facilities for luggage and secure stuff eg passport. They had recycling bins.
well organized and the staffs are very nice. Dining room is also good to use.
very good location and cheap.
Ok, location, that is about it.
Really friendly staff and great atmospere. There were basically no extra charges for anything, and they would help you with everything they could. Started feeling like a second home after just a few days!
Staff, location and cleanness.
Personnel super agréable qui est la pour vous aider si besoin. Auberge assez propre, le sol de la salle de bain est parfois sale avec tous les passages, mais le ménage est fait regulierement. J'ai galéré à utiliser la douche malgré que je sois restée 6J: sois trop chaude, soit trop froide une vrai merde ça par contre. Pour la sécurité, il y a des codes à l'entrée puis un pour rentrer dans la chambre et un petit casier mais pas de quoi mettre grand chose dedans, j'avoue que je flippais de laisser mon sac de rando assez chere que j'ai eu pour mon noel mais au final je me suis inquiétée pour rien.
Le bonus c'est que t'as une reduc sur la bouffe et les bieres, c'est situé proche de tout, le prix n'est pas très élevé.
A recommander pour 2/3 nuits
Ambiance sympa et cadre agréable
Welcoming and well located
A really good place to stay during my day off from the work, I also enjoyed a good hamburger for lunch, the room where I've been had lot of space and new wooden-framed beds and the other guests where very relaxed and quiet.
Good atmosphere but cleanliness to see again
good location and price
Good and well placed hostel
great atmosphere, excellent location and friendliness staff
close to city!!
Good location. Friendly staff. Breakfast a little bit better than usual free hostel breakfast. Not the best hostel but good value for money.
The quite good location and its cheapness
JUST AVOID THIS HOSTEL
bar, helpful staff...
Definitely coming back!
great location, walking distance to the tube and close to central London. will be back
Une superbe auberge !
was handy enough to get to and fairly central and cheap.
The staff. They were so helpful. We had a mix up with our rooms and Daniel (the bartender/staff on duty) helped us sort it out. He was even brave enough to help three girls haul our bags upstairs! Hard to pack light coming from Canada.
Bon emplacement mais propreté laissant à désirer...
A good week end in London
aucune parole, ne pas faire confiance
The wifi was secure and breakfast was good. There are lockers in the rooms and a locked luggage storage room next to the bar. The bar's food was pretty good and it was a relatively quiet area.
Close to tube, quite side street, "old-pub" feel. Reasonable priced nice quality pizza and snacks. Bar prices reasonable. Quilt and pillow provided, showers and toilets were always clean and presentable on my stay. Room was fully packed with 3 high bunks but not a problem matress was ok-i slept well. Nice staff, easy check-in /out, discount on bar purchases. I would definitely stay again.
would definitely recommend this hostel, friendly staff, good location can walk to big ben in about 15 mins, clean hostel/beds ect, pub downstairs, quiet enough to get to sleep, good price, free breakfast included, just toast and cereal ect, 24hour check in/out
i only stayed for one night but really cant knock it on anything, would stay here again whenever im in london
The location is great for sightseeing in London. Sitting a couple minutes from Lambert North on the Bakerloo line provides easy access into the main shopping streets of Oxford and Regent. A further few minutes walk takes you to the South Bank where you have attractions, such as the aquarium, London Eye, London Dungeon and great walk along the South Bank of the Thames.
Close from Northen Line tube station.
Good ambient at the bar.
The room mates respect the silence during the night.
The staff it's very friendly and kind.
Definitely i recommend this place.
Value for money and staff friendliness
Friendly staff, quiet neighborhood and great placement.
It was very close to the tourist attractions (London Eye, Big Ben)
The atmosphere of the hostel was very welcoming, felt like I was at home
The 10% off the bar drinks and food was very appreciated
The free breakfast was also appreciated
It was the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Without a doubt. The rooms smelt fresh and they were clean. The whole place was clean and fresh, very unusual - being a hostel.
Close to Westminster, bar was open 24/7, close to shops and a 24/7 food market.
They take good care of you once you are a guest and greet you on your return.
It's location and friendly staff. The bar downstairs is nice.
Stay at Safestay Hostel London Elephant & Castle and you’ll find Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, the London Eye, Oxford Street and Leicester Square all less than 15-minutes away by tube. Tate Modern, the National Theatre, The Imperial War Museum, London Aquarium, London Dungeon, Shakespeare's Globe Theatre, the Kia Oval and the famous Ministry of Sound are all within 1.5 miles of the property.
Located in the most beautiful and charming neighbourhood in London, Astor Hyde Park is one minute from Hyde Park and surrounded by some of London’s greatest museums including the Natural History Museum, Victoria & Albert and Science Museum. The hostel is a short walk from London’s best transport connections, including direct trains to Heathrow Airport and all of London’s attractions. If this weren’t enough the iconic pubs, excellent shopping, amazing restaurants and occasional celebrity sighting
L'auberge est propre et les lits sont confortables. Les rideaux permettent d'avoir un peu d'intimité ce qui est agréable.
Les points faibles: peu de douches et un quartier bruyant. Pensez à prendre des boules quies si vous souhaitez dormir.
Bon rapport qualité prix pour le petit déjeuner.
Very good hostel. Very clean. Nice staff and near the subway
Modern decoration, sober and practical Lack worn coat and towels Lift broken often
Nice hostel, well equipped. Breakfast room dej / bar nice enough Room with the necessary comfort and enough room for everyone
J'étais venu il y a 4 ans, avec deux classes de jeunes de 10 ans.
Je suis revenu avec mon mari et mes filles et je n'ai aucun regret.
Très bon rapport qualité/prix, propre et agréable.
Heureuse d'avoir trouvé quelqu'un dans le personnel qui parlait Français.
Dommage que nous aillons vu le dernier jour que vous faisiez à manger le soir.
rated youth hostel but rather hotel type: lack kitchen available: no towels.
Very good overall: quality of services and implementation
Recommendable hostel, for the reasons below.
Very good establishment
Superb hostel! I recommend
everything!! really nice backpackers!
Très bonne auberge !
I like the individual washrooms and the huge lockers under the beds. The curtains on each bed also gave you privacy and helped to block out the overhead light.
3rd time I went back to this hostel, no doubt one of best hostel in London. each best has your own curtain so you get more privacy compare to ordinary hostels.
I really enjoyed the design of the place, clean-ish, I think I would preferred if they mopped the floor in the dorms everyday. Showers and bathrooms were clean. It seems like a sketchy area, but I was not hassled. Easy access to the airport. Total time takes about an hour if you don't take the express train. Take Heathrow to Piccadilly Circus, change to the bakerloo line that is going towards elephant and castle. Just a 5 min walk to Elephant and Castle underground, there's also a bus stop right outside as well. Staff was friendly, for the most part!
Nice hostel in such a cool location.
Very nice location. Nice and helpful staff.
Friendly staff, very comfortable bed, clean hostel, nice common area
Was neat and Tidy, Secure as well.
The staff, the rooms.
safe, Area where its located
Nice, and clean.
Good location, only a few minutes walk from Elephant and Castle underground station and bus stops outside which go to most of the city. Hostel is really nice inside, very clean and trendy looking. Lots of space to chill out comfortably. Rooms were clean and quiet. Bathrooms were really clean and lots of space. Was given a voucher for a free drink when I arrived too!
Very helpfull and friendly staff. The bed got curtains, so if the light is on it didn't disturb you during your sleep.
It is a very good location, 5 minutes walk from the underground station. There are many restaurants/snack bar's around the hostel.
Friendly staff, clean, large rooms and beds with curtains. Probably the best hostel I have stayed
The place is extremely nice for a hostel and is more of a mix of hostel/hotel. The only difference between this and a 4 star hotel are the 8 person rooms. The staff was helpful and friendly and they have a complementary breakfast and bar/lounge area downstairs. In the 8 person rooms, each bed has a curtain for privacy. It was very close to the metro, which can take you anywhere in London.
Recomendado sin duda
Very clean, great value for money, continental breakfast included in the price
Everything I needed for an overnight stay ;helpful and easy check in ,spotlessly clean room ,comfortable bed which actually had curtains I could pull round ,nice continental breakfast and great all round facilities .loved it here .
new hostel, clean and modern
The atmosphere was really nice especially staff's kindness.
That's for sure an amazing hostel!
The bar is awesome
clean, secure, quiet , private , good looking inside and out - suited our family group just fine.
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, nice atmosphere, comfortable and safe.
Very friendly hostel, very welcoming staff, very good value for money. Very well placed, very chic neighborhood!
Great hostel, cheap and located in the very chic area of Hyde Park
L’auberge est bien, le personnel est accueillant et à l’ecoute. Le lieu est bien entretenu et l’auberge est très bien placée. Je recommande cette auberge.
Je profites de votre message pour vous faire part de ma demande que je n'ai pas réussi à faire à partir de votre site.
Il se trouve que j'ai mal lu les informations totalesconcernant l'auberge, à savoir surtout qu'elle n'acceptait pas les jeunes de moins de 16 ans et je voyageais avec ma fille de 19 ans et ma nièce de 15 ans. J'ai réalisé cela juste avant de prendre l'avion et j'ai envoyé un mail à l'auberge pour demander si notre première nuit au moins pouvais être conservée. Je n'ai pas eu de réponse mais une fois à Londres, il s'est avéré que nous ne pouvions pas résider là bas.
J'aimerais donc, si cela vous semble juste, être remboursée de l’acompte d'environ 50 euros que j'avais versé sur votre site. La personne de l'auberge Astor Hyde park avec qui j'ai parlé, m'a dit que c'est à vous directement que je devais adresser ma demande.
Je sais que ce questionnaire n'est pas le lieu pour formuler une telle demande mais n'ayant pas trouvé le moyen de le faire autrement je vous prie, si vous êtes d'accord, de bien vouloir faire suivre cette demande à qui de droit, en vous en remerciant à l'avance.
Veuillez recevoir mes salutations respectueuses
PS je coche une évaluation artificielle dont vous ne tiendrez pas compte afin de vous faire parvenir mon message
Auberge trés trés TRES bien situé, proche de plusieurs monuments historiques de la ville, ainsi que des transport en commun (métro et bus), personnel très sympa et a l'ecoute, réduction possible sur certaines attraction avec cette auberge (notamment pour les comédies musicales). Chambre grande avec salle de bain propre et bien entretenu. Possibilité de s'acheter a manger et de ranger la nourriture dans un des frigos notre dispositions dans la cuisine. Salon calme et bien décoré avec une télévision a disposition (avec Netflix). Tout pour rendre le voyage très agréable, je recommande.
very helpful staff and all rooms were very clean. There is a lovely atmosphere in this hostel.
Very centrally located and close to the tube and to buses. Literally steps away from the national history museum, and Kensington gardens, only five minutes from Hyde park. The staff was absolutely amazing. On my birthday they knew that I was sad being away from my family and friends and they bought me a cake and sung me happy birthday! Everyone was so cool and laid back there were events every night and the amenities were great.
I had to leave early and the manager was totally accommodating. The hostel is located in a super nice area of town surrounded by luxury.
They have free adapters and free locks available for deposit and movie nights in the lounge. Kitchen was huge and fully stocked
The stairs did give me a bit of a workout lol but the place was absolutely amazing I will never stay anywhere else in London but Astor Hyde park. This place met and exceeded any hostel expectations. It was an amazing time
Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly and amenities/service offerings were great.
Attention it does not accept the old (over 35 years) and does not refund the expenses of r
Gorgeous period building. Cozy common room and kitchen.
It was greate every one was friendly and very helpful.
I will come back next Year again.
Richtig klasse, sehr freundlich, sauber, Selbst Bettzeug gibt es was bei unseren deutschen Hostels ja nicht selbstverständlich ist.
Staff is great. Beds were comfy, hostel was clean and comfy and its pretty well located. Also the building is beautiful.
Very friendly and helpful staff.
The building itself is beautiful. It is the cleanest and nicest hostel I have ever stayed in, in London. It has a few very large homely communal areas, and a huge kitchen. A perfect place to have pre drinks and hang out with people before a party. Maunel, the guy who worked on reception, was extremely hospitable and lovely- great energy and made us feel happy as soon as we arrived! The location is also amazing- close to bus stops and the palace gardens which are stunnning! I will be back & will most definitely recommend.
Great location and staff were really helpful
Everyone was very friendly and helpfull, hostel is near center, very good localisation
Great atmosphere, free breakfast, friendly staff, it's easy to meet people in the common areas, kitchen, nice area of town, close enough to the Tube or the 52 Bus
The people who work ther and the common areas are amazing!
The staff is very friendly through and through.
The location is perfect and the staff is really friendly!
big screen :)
This hostel is really nice place to stay. I really appreciated the stuff - helpful, friendly, always there if you need them. The pleace is clean in the rooms, living areas, washrooms... Also the location is great - nice and safe street. I liked the atmosphere and I will come back for sure.
Great location, helpful staff, clean rooms
Astor is always a good value, they have everything a traveller can need
VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL STAFF. BEAUTIFUL HOSTEL.
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).
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.
Everything was great, I could not ask for more.
Bathroom, Room, Location, Quiet in the night
Great location, helpful staff. Breakfast is ok (don't expect too much), and the kitchen is well equipped.
Less than 500 meters from Camden Market, the Smart Camden Inn Hostel is located in Camden’s pubs and clubs district. Camden Town Underground Station is a 5-minute walk away and provides direct access to London city center. The Jewish Museum, Regents Park and central London are all within 15 minutes’ walk. London Zoo is less than a 20-minute walk from the Smart Camden Inn hostel
We are a stones throw away from many major tourist attractions, such as Portobello Market, Hyde Park & Kensington Palace!
Hyde Park is 2.4 km from Hostel One Notting Hill. London City Airport is 20 km from the property.
Kensington and Chelsea is a great choice for travellers interested in architecture, monuments,shopping and entertainment.
semaine passé du 7 au 14 septembre 2018 très très bonne !
Ambiance chaleureuse, personnel toujours présent, propreté au rendez vous et très haute sécurité au vu du nombre de caméra haha :)
Je recommande vivement !!!
Je regrette que les toilettes, la salle de bain et même la chambre (crottes de nez trouvé collé sur le plafond du lit) soient sales. Je regrette aussi beaucoup que le petit dejeuner ne soit pas du tout un réel petit dej anglais !! Pas de beans ! de bacon ! de sausage ! Juste un pti dej très simple, un jus d'orange qui se reproche plus de l'eau qu'un vrai jus d'orange.
Sinon hotel idéalement situé et nickel côté tarif.
Good, clean, friendly staff, very secure but very very compact
Auberge bien placée dans Candem, near the rue de Saint Pancras et grands axes, métr
Finally quite expensive for the service
Worst hostel I have ever stayed!!!
only positive point the situaton
Small but nice kitchen/backyard area for sitting, and the shower/toilet in the room we stayed in was clean and was in good order - he shower worked very well.
Great location and breakfast is very good. Some staff friendly. Rooms and bathroom small but enough storage space and hooks available. Also nice little terrace in back of hostel.
The property is in zone 2 and surrounding by shop, restaurant and others local amenities
noisy and a little creepy, ok staff, top location
Public places are kept clean
location is good.
noisy hostel and tiny room.
Three house keepers keep the place very clean, they are very pleasant and people need to talk to them more. The included breakfast is a bonus.
The breakfast was good, outdoor area is nice & having a big tv in the common room which everyone can see was also good. Curtains around bunks is great, but the top bunks in my room didn't have them. An ok hostel, but nothing special - if I'd just been there a couple of nights I think I would have been fine, but a week was too long.
It's in Camden Town.
Not far away from Underground Camden Town and from the Camden Market.
Short way to shops.
Very clean throughout. Provide en-suite dorm rooms. Hairdryer, iron etc available. kitchen always clean. Management dealt well with the problem that we had.
Very average but great location
no luck with a roommate very long night!
average but locate at easy excess
It's dirty, and staff are ignorant. AVOID !!!
Very central, no curfew, secure lockers (with fee). Not bad for a short stay but 2 nights was all we could take.
clean, great location, helpful staff
Close to the market, the metro, the bus. The neighborhood is fascinating. People are fantastic. The staff is good-looking, helpful. The place is clean, the breakfast is good, the atmosphere is good. Rooms and beds are tolerable.
Clean. Helpful staff. Surprisingly quiet considering its location. Good, central location. Comfortable. A good place to relax and sleep after a busy day.
It was so close to Camden lock it was unreal, there's a really friendly atmosphere, excellent value for money.
It's location near the Camden Town tube stop.
In all honesty, there wasn't much we liked. Have stayed in 3 hostels in London in last week and about 10 in Italy and France over last 5 weeks and this one was the worst we stayed in. The location was good and the hostel was secure but aside from that there wasn't much to like.
Very close to Camden town, the kitchen cooking facilities were very good, bathroom was clean, free wifi, the beds were comfortable and I don't think there was a curfew so you can come back late and easily go straight up to your room and perish after a night out!
You can check in at very late hours.
