We started the day with yet another early morning and some delicious scrambled eggs on some nice, thick cut toast for breaky.

TravelPod Member ReviewsAstor Queensway Hostel London
Highlight of this hostel is the staff. They are a great bunch of people, from various backgrounds and all with their own story to share. They create a great social atmosphere in and around the hostel, hanging out with guests and organising social events around London!
The hostel itself is pretty decent, with a couple of great communal areas - the lounge is fun, plus the kitchen and dining hall come in handy very often. Location of the hostel is great as it's close to Queensway (central line), Bayswater (circle/district lines), Paddington (piccadilly line & national rail), and it's also close to Hyde Park and trendy Notting Hill!
Being a youth hostel, it's a terrific place to stay for anyone 18-35 and wanting to have a fun time in London!
