Note: 18-40 yrs old only. Astor Kensington won 1st Best Small hostel chain and 1st in the Lifetime achievement awards at the 2015 Hoscars! Astor Kensington is in the upscale neighbourhood of Bayswater, beside Oxford Street, Hyde Park and Portobello market. Hostelworld guests say they appreciate that the hostel is ‘within walking distance of the Queensway and Bayswater tube stations’. Our reviewers appreciate that the staff are ‘really helpful and polite. They seem to have their own little family with each other, making it feel really welcoming and open to guests’, said one of our visitors. We like that this hostel has an ‘excellent’, ‘well-equipped kitchen’ and ‘the best breakfast for hostels for this price range in London’.

Good location but the facilities are absolutely filthy. In the shower the drain and the walls where covered with hair and hadn’t been cleaned prior to our arrival (stayed in a private room that included a shower). During the nights it was loud and alot of people running up and down the stairs taking no consideration to noice levels. Didn’t sleep a full night without being disturbed for 4 days. Wouldn’t recommend anyone to stay here.

Really nice hostel. The location is perfect, it's easy to go and bicycle to the city or to the nearby park. We were happy that the sheet was provided and breakfast was served, as well! The only thing I would like to change is to have more toilets/showers - it was a bit hard to get to the (only) toilet in the morning when many people were showering.

Bra
2015-5-28
Jag tyckte att det låg på ett bra ställe. Nära en trevlig park. Men själva boendet var inte så bra. Väldigt slitet, trångt och varmt. Vi bodde högst upp på sjätte våningen. Varje morgon badade man i svett när man vaknade trots öppet fönster och fläktar. Då vr den ändå inte varmt utomhus utan halvruggit vårväder. Det var 2 toaletter/duschar att dela på på vårat våningsplan. Vi bodde i ett åttabäddsrum och det var fyra såna till på den våningen. Toaletterna var så trånga att man fick cellskräck.
