Astor Museum Inn

Astor Museum Inn is one of the original Astor Hostels. It's been a favourite with travellers and guidebooks alike for over 20 years, with about 75 happy backpackers sleeping each night. The hostel is situated directly opposite the British Museum and is just a short walk away from Covent Garden, Oxford Street, Soho and the West End theatre district. You’ll also have the convenience of Russell Square Tube Station close by, providing you with fast access around the rest of London.

Astor Museum Inn has friendly dorm rooms, which range in size from three to twelve beds, with a couple of twin rooms also available. The toilets and showers - which are cleaned every day - are outside the rooms on every floor. There is a self catering kitchen for you to prepare and cook meals and snacks, and the hotel also serves a continental breakfast each morning. In the evenings you can return to the hostel and surf the web on the internet terminals and mix with guests in the games room.


Astor Museum Inn is situated opposite the world-renowned British Museum. Also within walking distance are the central shopping areas of Oxford Street and Soho - London's restaurant and cafe centre. You’ll also be able to walk to Covent Garden to catch a show, eat a meal or enjoy some drinks in one of the many great bars in the area. To get to other famous attractions such as the Tate Britain, London Eye and Buckingham Palace, you can hop on the London Underground at Russell Square Tube Station.

Astor Museum Inn is an awesome hostel in a great location in central London.  It's clean with great staff and quiet! I highly recommend it, I would definitely stay here if I ever return to London. A+++

Mikyoung Kim, Korean

It was quite good compared to its price and location. Also, it was clean and quiet. The only problem is that there's no lift so that I had to walk up to 4th floor. However I loved the hostel with the kind staff with smile. Thanks guys

Katrin, German

Nice hostel, very central but quiet. Very nice and helpful staff. For me, the best hostel in London

Tom, Austrian

We had a double twin room (no dorm), which was located in a near house belonging to the hostel. Very quiet, clean, perfect for that amount of money. The best with Astor Museum is its perfect location in the centre and the friendly staff. Will stay there definitely again.

I've stayed at Astor Museum Inn in December for 3 nights. What can I was the greatest choice I could ever done. The location is ideal for a tourist (exactly near The British Museum), the hosts are very friendly and ready anytime to give you any information that you need. It’s a quiet zone, the rooms and bathrooms (and showers) are very clean and the breakfast is more than sufficient! So if you look for a cheap and comfortable stay in London don't hesitate to choose this hostel!
