Meet the team
Marisa is the manager at YHA London Oxford Street:
My background with YHA begins in Sydney 2004 where I lived the backpacker dream for five years before returning to my hometown of London in 2007. I had so much fun at YHA Sydney Central that I was keen to get involved with YHA London Central when it first opened in February 2008.
Since then I have worked my way up the ranks at both YHA London Central and YHA London Oxford Street since it reopened in 2011 and have been the manager here since September 2014. YHA London Oxford Street is an oasis in Soho and your home away from home.
Soho is the beating heart of London and you instantly feel the electricity amongst its bars, shops, restaurants and cafés where any taste or preference is catered to. A few favourites of mine include a delicious pizza from Pizza Pilgrims on Dean Street, a killer Negroni at The Star at Night on Noel Street and a lip-smacking cupcake from Crumbs & Doilies in Kingly Court.
My advice is to walk as much as possible as the tube doesn’t give you a true sense of where you are. Leave here and head in any direction as there is something to explore and delight you. My team are happy to make a suggestion and tell you about our tours and tickets.
