It's hard to find affordable accommodation in London. I enjoyed my experience here. I was travelling alone and met some friendly people. The hostel is nothing special, and not the cleanest, but given the location I think it was worth it. And breakfast included is nice even when it's minimal. All the sights are easily accessible via subway or walking.... More

My wife and I came to the UK and booked 2 nights and the Brazen Backpackers. We got there and checked in and everything seemed fairly normal for a inexpensive hostel. We fell asleep when our heads hit the pillows. The mattresses looked dirty, the pillows looked dirty, but at least the sheets and cases were clean so it didn't... More

We arrived after midnight and had cooridnated our late arrival with the hostel beforehand, giving our approximate time of arrival. They said it would be fine, we'd just have to call the night manager once we got there. However, once we arrived, nobody answered our calls and we were left standing outside for 40 minutes, forced to make inquiries for... More

This Hostel is near to Edgware Road and Marylebone Tube Stations. It is a good place to stay if you want to go out to walk and know some of London. I was on a room with 2 bed bunks, it was very nice, and it was Internet Free Access too. From this location I was walking to Hyde Park... More

Close to Edgeware Road tube station, above a pub and cheap. It ticked all our boxes for a trip to london on the cheap. We booked the 9 bed dorm which had everyone's favourite 3bed bunks! Not to worry though it was only one night. Clean sheet, duvet cover and pillowcase was handed to us upon check in- which is... More

We were looking for a low cost hostel in London, I think we found it :) After the prices, I didn't expect too much from the rooms, and I get what I expected :) The best thing is the location of the hostel. It is really close to the public transport lines. We stayed in the room only for sleeping,... More

I know I wouldn't be staying in a 5 star hotel, but what I saw here was beyond the limit! I've stayed in different hostels around Europe and I can say this is the worst hostel I've ever stayed! There is a pub downstairs, you might find it quite convenient for a quick drink but after a long day of... More

After we found out our original hotel had been closed for about two weeks we went for a pint in the Brazen Head to evaluate our options. The barman over heard us talking about our predicament and couldn't do enough for us. He knocked 15 pounds of the listed price, gave us extra padlocks for free, got all three of... 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.
