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

Special Matilda who was really helpful funny, and a feast for the eyes (hope... More

I stayed at Phoenix hostel for 2 nights and the staff are friendly but the room was over crowded (10 person mixed dorm) the breakfast was extremely good value and the rooms themselves weren't too expensive. The room I stayed in was definitely overcrowded and the poor bloke who stayed on the top of the 3 person bunk didn't have... More

The staff was very friendly, very willingly to help you with your needs. Room was cramped but sufficient for a night of sleep. Toilets were sparkling clean! Just a 5 minutes walk away from Edgware Rd Bakerloo Line, great location in a quiet neighbourhood.

I stayed at this hostel for 9 days and It was the first time I had ever stayed in a hostel before and it was certainly a memorable experience. The rooms were quite nice but a tad small. Other than that, this hostel is quite amazing. 5 minute walk to 2 different train stations, 3 minute walk to the supermarket.... More

What a fantastic group of people that run this hostel! A friend of mine and I came in to London very late and lacked accommodations as we made the decision to travel to the city last minute. After bumbling about the city trying to find a hostel that would take us, we came across Phoenix hostel, where manager Paul and... More

As said in the title. The only thing that keeps it form being excellent is the make shift kitchen. (Fridge, microwave, plates cutlery and water heater), but, as far as I remember, there are plans to fix that. Staff is great. Met a few good persons there with whome I still have contact and once in a while I still... More

I would recommend this hostel if you are travelling alone and want to meet people, the pub layout and the staff create a very relaxed, friendly atmosphere. Security is good, everyone is let in by staff and they are there 24 hours a day. The hostel is in a quiet area very close to Edgware Road underground station. Facilities are... More
