The Phoenix is a great place to stay in London. It's very close to transport, it's clean and secure and you'll be hard pressed to find a place with better value for money. The bar downstairs is awesome and if Josh is around you'll have a blast.

I met different staff every day and they're quite helpful. It's close to Baker street tube and Paddington. The breakfast is a good deal for me. The wifi is the most disappointed thing ever! Almost no connection every time. Prepare earplugs because the bed room will almost certainly be noisy. But it's acceptable value for money.

I stayed at Phoenix for one night and it was better than I had expected. Sleeping in a 10+ people dorm it wasn't the best night in terms of uninterrupted sleep, but the staff was really helpful and the facilities were ok.

I liked the fact every memeber of the staff was very polite and ready to help. i arrived early on Sunday morning and had to spend a couple of hours until my check-in. The receptionist kindly offered me the wifi code. Also, as there was a football match on, the bar/reception was filled with eager fans, thus my check-in was delayed by other 30 minutes. The manager personally appologized to me and offered me free drinks.

They are so strict with no taking anything into you room ... they even took my bottle of water but they did clean the windows since there is a hostel.

Guys, I really enjoyed my time. Everybody is really receptive and friendly over there. It was a great stay in london, and also I think quite cheap (or London standards I thought). The only thing that is kind of a problem but they can't solve it is that you can't bring your alcohol from outside in, but I think it is an inherent thing when you have a friggin PUB in the middle of the hostel which is cool but more expensive. Anyways, keep up the good work, it was really a good stay.

Pretty good hostel in zone 1 of London. The location is okay, there are bars and shops closeby, and the common room is nice. The rooms are pretty small though. so I think it's better to not stay too long (i spent 2 nights)

This is one of the best hostels I have stayed in! This is true because I have been back multiple times! The atmosphere is really chill and the common area is really roommy. The vibe is always positive, and beds are comfy. But what makes this hostel stand out to me, is the staff. They are absolutely amazing! Mia, Jason, Paul and Matt are all fantastic! They all go out of their way to make us feel welcome. There are a few more staff members but in my time there I didn't see them much. Thumbs up!

This hostel was fairly standard. The best thing about it was the location, which is absolutely perfect, so close to so many different touristy spots. The internet was an absolute joke, if you want a hostel with wifi, don't pick here as it didn't work 99% of the time. When it did happen to work it was extremely slow. The other issue was the water, a few times during my stay they ran out of water, the showers were often cold. The staff were always friendly, had no issues there.

This place is awesome! I try to come back here as much as I can when I am in London. The staff here are truly amazing. They go out of their way to help us with anything we need, and are very friendly. The common area is very relaxing and unlike many hostels, their wifi works! Beds are comfortable and toilets work well. Showers could be a little stronger, but otherwise, perfect place to stay! AWESOME STAFF!
