Don't get me wrong, it would be okay to stay here for many, but i feel like there could be much more improvement. A paint job in the main area is of importance as it is starting to look really really run down. There was not really an atmosphere in the hostel however i enjoyed that i can bring out... More

I booked this hostel because we were staying in London for New Years Eve and it was one of the only reasonably priced hostels with availability that looked good. It’s a pretty small operation with minimal staff and not too many rooms but it’s a good place to stay while in town. The staff is nice and helpful, but usually... More

I was very disappointed to stay at this hostel and confused by the high rating and reviews. Not to mention the very high rate I paid for a night. But I know why after I overheard a conversation. Staff get paid a commission of £10 if they can get a guest to write a very positive review that also has... More

Visited just before xmas, moved to this hostel because another was undergoing renovations. The staff were very friendly especially Dennis and Paul. The beds were uncomfortable but they were fine for the time we were there. Would recommend it.

Over my 3 months of travelling and many hostels stayed at throughout London, the Phoenix hostel is head and shoulders above the rest. Zone 1 so its close to everything London has to offer, clean and comfortable rooms and a more than affordable price. The atmosphere and vibe is really something else, an authentic experience with a warm homely environment... More

For budget travellers or short visits to London this is a great place!.. Freindly staff and great selection of good discounted beers. Paul the manager or any other staff will advise you on the best ways to go around or where to visit.

I stayed at a time when a lot of people were moving to London for work so the vibe at the hostel was not great. I didn't feel safe walking at night as I was followed by someone during the day when I was walking to the hostel. The workers were very nice and engaging and helpful in finding things... More

We ended up staying here because of the (London) affordable prices. We got the couples room but found the bed to be quite rough to sleep on because of springs going into our backs. There also wasn't much space in this room- just a foot or two to walk around the bed on two sides. We pulled back the headboard... More

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

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.
