While it's not located in an exactly central location, if you know London a bit will get around easily. It looks a bit run down but it doesn't mean it's not clean or charming. Everything works ok and the staff is helpful enough. As I only stayed one night, cannot tell much about the atmosphere but it's definitely a good choice for the price.

i enjoyed my stay at the phoenix hostel so so much. nice friendly atmosphere. the staff were very generous with my questions about the area and where to go. one staff member was especially helpful, Paul. for telling where to go out and cheap nice places to eat. the people who stayed were friendly young travelling types so there was a nice mix. recommended!

The crowd here is good, and it helps that the lobby functions as a bar. Relatively quiet and quite clean.

Really good hostel. Nice location, close to Edgware Station and the staff are friendly. Plenty of powerpoints and top notch wifi. The breakfast you get for 1 pound 50 is quite good as well. Paul who works behind the bar is a cool guy and is good with all the customers. Nice clean rooms with comfortable beds. Would stay here again.

Very nice place to stay, friendly staff with a good music taste can really make your day. Old facilities but always clean. Room doors works on a code, you can have a locker for 2 pounds.

I stayed in Phoenix Hostel while working and looking for flat in London. The location was perfect. The rooms and common area are smaller but still nice, bathrooms are tiny but just fine to use for a short stay. Above all I enjoyed the atmosphere - staff is polite, helpful and relaxed. I personally met with Paul and Johnathan and both guys were very nice. As I had to go to work early in the morning I especially appreciated that this isn't a crazy party/drinking hostel with drunk guests.

The breakfast is very good. But I think that the bathrooms could be cleaned more often.
