But wait! The best is yet to come! The Astor Kensington?s location is AMAZING! You?re a five minute walk from three of the best museums in the world ? the Natural History Museum, the Science Museum, and the V & A. The Royal Albert Hall is practically across the road and let us not forget beautiful Hyde Park, and the majestic Kensington Palace. If you are less of a museum person and more of a shopper, then you will be in paradise at the Astor Kensington. Harrods ? the greatest department store in the world ? is a ten-minute walk away through trendy South Kensington. This is where London?s hottest young things come for a bit of retail therapy ? keep an eye out for Jude Law, Sienna Miller, Kate Moss and Keira Knightly, who all live in the area. And don?t forget the royal Princes, William and Harry, who frequent the clubs in the area almost every weekend.
You can spend days wondering through the gorgeous boutique stores, trendy cafes and small, independent art galleries, and when you feel like a change of scenery, all the sights and sounds of central London are a mere tube ride away (or you can walk, via Buckingham Palace and Westminster Abbey and Big Ben).
While you are out, we make sure your belongings are safe and secure, with CCTV and a key card access system. There is also a safety deposit box in reception for your valuables. .
This is a small, cosy hostel with just under 100 beds ? a great place to make friends and create amazing memories of your stay in London. We will bend over backwards to make sure you have a great time. So prepare to live like a king ? book your bed at the Astor Kensington today!
