I came to Astor Quest Hostel in January fresh off the boat from NZ and not knowing anyone. It was the best place to be and I met so many people. It turns out that over the year I have travelled to many countries and rather than get a house and pay rent when I am not there I decided...

Great location, a 3 minute walk from Queensway tube which is a great link to many of the best sights in London. The Natural History & V&A museums can be walked to through the park within half hour which is great on a sunny day. Stayed in the 6 bed female dorm which was clean. Bed were comfy, pillows a...

I used to work at the quest as a manager from the ages of 22-24. It was the most fun I have ever had in my life so I am naturally biased to this place. Even though I could afford a more upscale place I would go back to the quest anyday. I think like any backpackers the place can...

it's my first internet rating at all. but this is the time to start. the first impression was quite ok, but then some things came together which made it a not so pleasant stay. very loud marilyn manson music at the breakfast, a not working key system, unclean carpet floors, incompetent staff members, the tinnest shower rooms which gave you...

My boyfriend booked a twin-private room for us to stay one night while visiting London. Unfortunately whilst out seeing the sights my wallet was stolen. When it came to checking in late that evening, the staff almost wouldn't let me stay because I didn't have ID! This is despite the booking being made in BFs name, and he had ID....

This was the first of many hostels that we stayed in while in the UK. It was a great introduction to backpacking and set the standard for many to come. It was in a great location, in a good area, a quick tube trip into the main city, but surrounded by gorgeous parks and amazing little streets. Close to a...

Overall, I thought this was a perfectly fine place to stay. I don't expect much from hostels--I just want to sleep and get out. The beds were fine. There was a bathroom inside the room and the toilet was disgusting and there was some mold in the bathroom as well. In the basement bathroom the hostel owners keep things people...
