Astor Kensington Hostel
Astor Kensington is a London hostel that offers a relaxed, welcoming environment in the heart of Kensington, near Hyde Park and Chelsea.
At this 18-35 age-limit hostel, there are just over 100 beds, several of which are entirely private. Perks include free wi-fi, breakfast, table tennis, and TVs and fridges in all rooms.
The friendly, outgoing front desk staff is available 24/7, and always willing to offer advice about what to do in and around London.
There is a distinct community feel to the Astor Kensington, as almost every night guests are invited to throw in a few pounds, go shopping at a nearby grocery store, and prepare a group sit-down dinner.
For those of you who are starting out on a 2-year work visa, the Astor Kensington is also home to the OVC London office, a great organization there to help you get yourself set up with bank accounts, accommodation, money transfers and of course the all important parties.
