Astor Museum Inn

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

One of the oldest low budget hotels in London, the Museum has been helping weary backpackers and travellers loosen up since 1977!

The location of this hostel makes it one of the best value hostels in London central. Right in front of the British Museum guests can access Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden and Leicester Square in just 10 minutes.

A cosy budget hostel split across two buildings near Russell Square, this low cost hotel doesn’t feel much like it.

With a recently renovated kitchen, new reception and revamped lounge. There are dozens of sights located so close to the hostel, and is best hostel to visit as much of London as you can take in! Otherwise stay indoors with your fellow residents and enjoy a good time in the basement.

**Please note: We are a backpacker hostel and therefore cater strictly for the 18 to 35 year old age bracket only. A passport, photo ID or drivers licence is required upon check-in.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It's a good place to meet new people, and it's really convenient to go anywhere (even British museum is just within 5 mins walk). It's a pity sometime the toilet is a bit dirty, and some of the bed are too small (but some are still really fine). And the isolation of noise is not very good, I will not recommend you if you need really quiet place for sleep. Overall it's worthy for the money, because they provide breakfast. They also have a fridge for keeping your own food.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I LOVED the staff at Astor Museum Inn! Everyone was so fun, helpful, and easy to talk to. There was a room just for watching dvds if you want to stay in, or a great nightly pub crawl if you want to go out. This is the only hostel pubcrawl I've been on that seemed to be worth the money. I had a blast here and highly recommend it! Spacious dorms with sturdy non-squeaky bunks. You may have to wait in line for the showers, but they'll always be hot! Great safe location convenient to 2 stops on the underground. I highly recommend this hostel to anyone!

Astor was a great place to stay in London. The most friendly receptionist staff I had while staying in hostels. They are willing to help you find anything you need and will get you to where you need to go. The breakfast is delicious too! I missed peanut butter so much and got a litte bit of home while staying at Astor. Woderful hostel that I would recommend to anyone.

Although I only stayed there for two nights, I was impressed by the friendly reception staff and the service they have offered. It's a relaxing and friendly place to make friends and meet other travellers. The breakfast is really great too. If I will go back to see London again, definitely I will go back to this hostel!

You get exactly what you pay. Perfect service and attention by young and friendly people. The location is perfect, next to the British Museum, in the center of London. The rooms are quite clean and the beds are comfortable. It's an old style building, so is mainly made of wood. It has heating. It's 5 minutes far from Holborn underground station.

If you don't mind much privacy (shared rooms, toilets and shower baths) and are young (between 18 and 35 years old), it is a good place to stay in London.
