I really enjoyed this hostel. I walked here from City Thameslink Station (which was relatively far, I didn't realise that when arriving in Stanstead…). Walking through the neighbourhood, I had no idea what to expect, and when I rounded the corner on Daventry Street I was blown away. It's a quaint, cool looking hostel. I stayed here for three nights,... More

Really good for the price we payed. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. Great service and information. Great location 1 minutes walk away from two different station. Bathrooms and bedding are cleaned every day. Would definitely go back. Stayed close to two weeks.

I stayed here for 2 nights. The price is reasonable, the bed was good, duvet was clean and shower room was fine! and they also stored the luggage for free when I went there before check-in time and for 2 pounds after checking-out. It was super helpful. All staff were kind, sweet and friendly, especially the french staff <3(I forgot... More

Amazing hostel for a great price. The staff were amazing especially the Asian girl who went out of her way even when not working to help guests! Booked for one night and stayed for 12. Have recommended to others and you should definitely stay.

I chose this hostel because of its very positive rating. Having stayed there now, I am puzzled as to where these ratings come from. Someone below mentions bribed reviews - would explain this dump of a hostel being praised to the skies for no reason, but I have not found any evidence for it during my stay. I booked a... More

I found this one randomly, just through checking the location of all alternatives on the London map. But, no, there was not only the location (next to Baker Street, plenty of transportation) that was great! The building was newly renovated. Also there were nice common areas and numerous showers. But above all Jon, Matt from staff were always ready to... More

It's good enough for the price, but it could be better. The location is good, it isn't the town centre, but 4 minutes walking you have the nearest tube station; 10 minutes walking you've the easybus stop (to go to stansted airport); and 5 minutes walking you can find little food shops to take away and a little supermarket.

The Phoenix is one of the cheapest hostel I found in London but is the coolest, I think! All day feeling like home and everybody having a nice time in the living room. The breakfast is really great and cheap, it is important because London is expensive. The people working there are great and ready to indicate you the good... More

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighborhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
