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... More

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

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...

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.
