Nice and cozy Hostel. Has a kind of pub included. Brakkie is alright for 1,50 GBP extra. I met some nice people. This hostel is not a big one and it wasn't that busy. I would come back again.

This place was fine for a budget hostel - the staff were extremely helpful and I felt safe. The 6 bed dorm was extremely cramped and I felt quite claustrophobic in there for two nights. I have heard that London hostels in general have very small rooms so perhaps that's just something you're meant to put up with.

Pheonix was a cool little hostel, big rooms but triple bunk beds reduced the size of each room quite substantially as well as the luggage that couldn't fit in the lockers. The bar was well priced, location was great and very central near the Edgware Road station on the circle line. Felt secure but I had locks for my bags for additional peace of mind. The only downside was the hot water only got lukewarm but I'm not overly fussy. A solid stay both for value, comfort, staff and location!

New place which means it is Fresh! Would gladly go there again or recommend to friends. They have a security door during daytime which prevents strangers to use the hostel area and only allows them to be in the bar part.

The staff is good but the room is small and crowded. Other travelers just put everything on the floor. I booked two nights but had to leave the second day...

What do you get if you have an Irish & Scottish Man and an English Girl working in a Hostel? Actually a great place to stay with great staff in a central location. For a wealth of knowledge about London and Scotland then chat to Paul really nice guy.

Good place to stay, I've actually booked another day. The lady at reception is awesome and friendly. This place is a typical London hostel, above a pub. Beer is pretty cheap here which is nice, the common area has wifi and a TV and some chairs, decent place to hang out. There wasn't much in terms of socializing but I think there could be, it's just everyone had their faces buried in their electronic devices instead. Breakfast is pretty weak for being paid, but it's only 1.50 and OK.

It was great for the price!! I would definitely go back for that price. It's not anything special, but it fulfils the role of a hostel.
