This hostel really was not bad. Was it the best hostel I have ever stayed at? No. But the staff was very helpful when we needed help getting around the city/to the airport. The beds were decent bunk beds and were pretty comfortable. The bathrooms and showers were not the cleanest I have ever used though and the lighting in... More

This hostel, whilst boasting only basic facilities has something that the bigger more expensive hostels do not. The staff are helpful and friendly (and will probably have a pint with you after their shift should you be inclined). Matt, in particular, went out of his way to make my stay here memorable. There's a nice vibe here that makes it... More

The atmosphere at the downstairs bar of this hostel was a lot of fun and I found a few friends to spend a good time London with. The location is nice and central, close to the circle/bakerloo/district line tube station and in easy reach of Oxford street and Hyde park. The rooms are a little intimate but clean, warm and...

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.

Staying in Marylebone

Neighborhood Profile
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.
