Currently my dad said I should start paying £600 a month.
If I treat this like a rented house it's essentially:
-all bills included including food.
-Gym is a 15 minute walk away (£18/mnth)
-work (near Marylebone station) is an hour away including 3 trains+bus (which costs £180 for a travel card).
So I'm effectively paying £800 inclusive of everything a month.
I make about £1400 a month and a healthy amount of savings (although I'd just want my pay to cover everything) . I'm open to moving out, so long as I still have some money to put away. Ideally I'd like to rent at a similar price to what my parents offer (or more if it's worth it)
One of the main things I'd like to do is move closer to work. Commuting I hate (2 hours of my life wasted a day + cramped).
I assume all the costs I only care about are:
-rent + council tax
-all utility bills including wifi
-travel (if not in walking distance)
Can I get some advice from those who have moved out and are living in London?
Is it possible to find a place near Marylebone for around £600 realistically?
I found a place that is a 25 minute walk away and its £600, all bills included (with wifi), but should I be sceptical? Etc
I'm quite new to this and worried about making a big mistake especially with contracts involved

If you cycle to work, you can ditch your gym membership and save on your commute too. But other than that, your main additional costs will be food, utilities and council tax.

Have you looked on right move, etc. to see how much house shares go for? Some will include bills and others won't.
