The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, microwave, washing machine, fridge and a back garden. You also have your own key, so you can look your room.
The flat is 200 meters from New Cross Gate Station, which gives you access to the Overground and the mainline railway (Note: the Overground is connected to the tube/underground - it just runs over ground - all tickets are valid).
There are also numerous buses, which pass the flat and go straight to central London, including several night buses, so you can always get home no matter what time of night! You can be in Trafalgar Square (by train) in just 15 minutes. The vibrant and eclectic area of Shoreditch is also just 15 minutes on the Overground. The location is ideal for any tourist or person working in central London!
So far all the guests in the flat have been very nice, interesting, responsible and very respectful of one another. I believe that they have all enjoyed their stay. The apartment is maintained daily to a high standard.
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there are 24 hour food shops, cafes, restaurants, a big supermarket (Sainsbury’s) and bars all within walking distance of the flat. The flat is very close to Goldsmith University campus, so could be an ideal base if you are visiting the university for a conference.

The location is okay for London. It's just 200 m from New Cross Gate Station and you get to the Centre quite easily. If you expect to be closer to the City you will have to pay more.
We didn't meet Sidney but with the key instructions it was easy to get into the appartment. We had the Asian room with 3 people which was okay.
Not okay was the fact that there is just one single toilet and one single shower for more than 10 people. And you just need one person who doesn't clean up after using the toilet/the shower and the whole place becomes really disgusting. We had that problem and therfore wish that the facilites would be looked after/cleaned more often.
The room was not as quiet as the descritption would suggest but a look at the map and google street view showed us before that the house is located at a big road so we didn't expect it too quiet.
Would we recommend this appartment? In general yes for all those who need a place to sleep in London and know about the fact that you share a single toilet and single shower with 12 other people and don't care (you might be lucky and have other travellers who are clean, you might be less lucky - as we were - and live there with travellers who are not quite as clean as you wish).
We stayed in the presidential suite, which was a big room, with a double bed, a couch and table with chairs. While most of the stuff was obviously ikea stuff it was more than sufficient for the few nights we spent there. Unfortunately the room was next to a busy road with a lot of sirenes. I found it quite hard to sleep there. I recommend getting another room at this place. I also recommend reading the key instructions carefully ;)
Appartement bien desservi en transports mais pas bien situé.
La chambre est relativement "correcte" (mais bruyante) mais l'appartement est sale.
Nous n'avons jamais rencontré Sidney, juste la femme de ménage qui ne parle pas un mot d'anglais.... (contradictoire avec les échanges par email reçus)
Le wifi ne fonctionne quasiment pas voire pas du tout.
Question hygiène, c'est très limite (mauvaise odeur, mal entretenu, salle de bain et wc sale, = 1 seul pour toutes les chambres, non indiqué dans l'annonce).
Bref, pas aussi agréable que la photo semble paraître, annonce mensongère?
Nous avons été renfermé dehors un soir, pas agréable du tout....
Super Place for trips to the city,
shops and great communication
kitchen, bathroom, clean rooms
wifi, washing machine
Har været fint tilfreds med ophold hos Sidney, der havde gjort det nemt for os at finde og værelset levede fint op til forventningerne.
Dog skal nævnes, at ejendommen ikke ligger 2-3 minutter fra Trafalgar Square, hverken med over/underground, bus eller til fods. Med over/underground, som er det hurtigste, tager det ca. 20-30 minutter. Dette er en misvisende oplysning, når man søger bolig i indre city.
Men ellers ganske godt tilfreds.
we had a nice holiday! the flat is very beautiful and clean.
it it not far from tower brige, about 20 minutes
L'appartement est correct, mais nous avons été un peu déçu, car contrairement à la description, il n'y a pas de canapé lit, mais 2 matelas en 90 cm calés contre un mur. Nous étions 5 ; aussi l'un d'entre nous a du dormir parterre sur le matelas...
A par cela, l'appartement est quand même à 15 min de la station de métro à pied, ce qui n'est pas tout près.
Sinon, l'appartement est bien meublé, l'équipement est convenable.
Fin beliggenhed. Vi var 4 der delte et værelse. Vi fik sovet, men det var ikke til 4 personer. 2 af kogeblussene i køkkenet virker ikke, men ellers var både bad og toilet ok. Ingen luksus men fint til prisen.
Nous avons passé un très bon séjour à Londres, la chambre était spacieuse et agréable, nous avons apprécié de pouvoir faire un peu de cuisine. Partager et échanger avec d'autres voyageurs, était très sympa. Avoir une station et un supermarché à proximité, très pratique. Le temps aussi pour arriver dans le centre de Londres est de 15 minutes, ce qui est très peu. A bientôt, Michèle
Had a nice stay in London.
The flat is a bit outside but with a very good connection to the city via overground/underground and bus.
The room, presidential suite, was good. Very big, but too noisy, because of the street and with a lot of sirens because of a hospital nearby. Could hardly sleep there.
Would prefer another room next time, much smaller but to the back, there you don't here anything of the traffic. ;-)
The shower is very small but works fine, the toilet with a bin is separate which is very good since there are five rooms which have to spare them.
(The flat was well booked as we arrived, but there wasn't a problem about queuing in front of the bath anytime.)
The kitchen can be used, you have your own space in the fridge and there are enough plates and stuff.
Would book a room again, but next time one that faces the back. ;-)
