I use HostelBookers almost exclusively and have had great experiences up until I chose to stay at Phoenix for one night based on its reviews. About 10 minutes after checking in and being led up to my room and the bathrooms, I regretted my decision. The rooms are small, poorly-lit and not very well appointed. I stayed in a room... More

Travelling through London regularly on a tight budget can be difficult so having a place that is reasonably priced, clean with friendly people, wifi and included breakfast is always handy. The bar downstairs is also a good way to meet new, likeminded people from around the world

The staff really made this place as they were incredibly friendly and helpful. Room was very basic but it was cheap. Another person staying in the room stole some money from me but I got it back and the hostel can hardly be blamed for this. Would recommend it if you're just stopping over in London or are over for... More

Yep Free Drink if you give this place a good review!! Just ask any of the staff or that older guy that hangs around?? Could be a nice place if better taken care of, as small and cosey. Rooms a bit cramped but, it's like a trial to see how many beds that can cramp in one room. Anyways free... More

It was definitely the people who made the Phoenix such a great stay. All the staff were helpful (Peter and Paul) but it was Tegan who takes the cake. Inviting my friend and I along on a picnic in Hyde park was one of the highlights during my stay in London. Thanks Tegan, it was a blast! :)

I stayed at the Phoenix for 5 nights, mid-August. I was in room #1, a 12-bed mixed dorm. They have crammed so many beds in there that, when fully occupied, you can't really function. I was constantly tripping over, moving, and stepping on other people's belongings just to get into and out of my own bed. There is very little... More

I chose this hostel because of the price. It is one of the cheaper hostels I found in London and had good ratings. The staff are very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. I met tons of great people and had a great time just hanging out in the common area. The rooms are a bit scarce on space but... More

I cannot say that the place is expensive cor the service they offer since i don't know enough about london to judge it. But the truth is that the rooms are very small, the same with bathrooms, and both are also dirty. I was surprised about that because i arrived at the hostel at 2pm, and i could not do... More
