thx for the positive comment, but actually we regard the room as far to small for 3 persons. Anyway the room is quite economic, clean and save. For Two ok but defiantly not for the three of us.
The room is functional and clean, ideal for people who come to visit and in this sense are out and about all day. Only black spot the shower is small and capricious (hot water not continuous)
But that does not diminish the value price of housing.
La chambre est fonctionnel et épuré, idéal pour des gens qui viennent visiter et dans ce sens sont en vadrouille toute la journée. Seul point noir la douche qui est petite et capricieuse (eau chaude pas en continue)
Mais cela n'enlève rien au rapport qualité prix du logement.
Windu very good service. Our host took us twice giving the necessary for our stay and inviting us to contact her in case of any trouble indications.
We were situated a little walk away from the center but close by metro. Good shuttle service. Quiet, with many services and a cool bar cerquita neighborhood.
The bedroom and very clean and collected common rooms.
We have the impression that repeat with windu !! Good prices !!
Muy buen servicio windu. Nuestro anfitrión se puso en contacto con nosotros en dos ocasiones dándonos las indicaciones necesarias para nuestra estancia e invitándonos a contactar con ella en caso de algún problema.
Estábamos situados un poco lejos del centro a pie pero muy cerca en metro. Buen servicio de transporte. Barrio tranquilo, con muchos servicios y algún bar que mola cerquita.
El dormitorio y las habitaciones comunes muy limpios y recogidos.
Tenemos la impresión que repetiremos con windu!! Buenos precios!!
A suite for the (deaf) President of cockroaches!
First of all this room IS NOT IN LONDON BRIDGE. This is a BIG LIE. The area is called New Cross and it is a dodgy, dangerous, dirty and very noisy area of London. What makes this place even more dangerous is the fact that the keys to enter the building and flat are always left in the post box slot right outside of the house for anybody who knows (or has seen) that they are there. There is an unidentified number of disrespectful people living and moving in and out of the flat day and night. The first night we were there, a guy left in the middle of the night (after slamming his room door and talking on his phone like it is daytime) without bothering to close the main door of the flat, so basically woke up and found the front door wide open for everybody to help themselves in the flat! Couple that with the fact that the keys for the building are constantly in a public space and you can see the potential for disaster. I was living for 10 years in London and have lived in very ugly places. This room / flat is a definite champion.
The president of the cockroaches must be deaf because the presidential suite is by far the most noisy room of this horrible flat. The building is located on one of the busiest roads in London leading to the port for France, so you can get the picture. I am not even bothering mentioning the non-stop buses, ambulances and police sirens throughout all night and day. It is humanly impossible to sleep. Since the windows are from the 50s, don’t expect them to reduce the noise at all – at times I really thought that we had a window open, but no, they were all closed. The first 2 nights it was really cold in the room and the flat and we only found comfort under the duvet; the president of cockroaches does not feel any cold.
We brought our own bedsheets and towel because we read that one reviewer came in and Sidney had left the bedsheets of another guest. Also, Sidney in his welcome email lets you know that you may actually have to sleep in dirty bedsheets – if there is no time to change them netwen guests. Having our own stuff proved to be a great thing - we even used owr own duvet cover. Although our bedsheets looked clean, they had big oil marks all over which we found quite disgusting. Also there was no towel. However, I have to say that the common areas and the room were clean. The toilet was taken care of on a daily basis, which is much appreciated given the number of people who use it.
Since there are 5 rooms in the flat and some of them can accommodate up to 4 people, you may have to share the TINY shower and toilet with up to 8-10 people at a time. In our case it must have been 6-7, not sure. Don’t bother asking how long you have to queue and hold your pie (and other larger items) in the morning and you must be crazy if you expect to be able to have anything near a normal shower after 4-5 people have done so before you. So, the bottom-line is that if you are a champion in holding your pie indefinitely, remaining sleepless or sleep regardless of what happens around you, have a 30 second shower and risk having dodgy strangers in the night in your room / flat, then this is the flat for you. If you are the deaf president of the cockroaches, it is even better!
The room is unfortunately quite different than in the pictures. Our allocated room was carpeted, had a really unpleasant smell. In addition, a dirty rag was left on the table. Generally it did not seem as if the room had been recently cleaned. Unfortunately also runs every 10 minutes a train close past the house, so you especially at night can not well come to rest.
The bathroom was ok.
Localization is as described. From New Cross station is only 5 minutes or on foot. The description of the house was great.
Overall, the accommodation is very cheap, I would not book again.
Das Zimmer sieht leider ganz anders aus als auf den Bilder. In unserem zugeteilten Zimmer lag Teppich, der einen wirklich unangenehmen Geruch hatte. Außerdem wurde ein dreckiger Lappen auf dem Tisch liegen gelassen. Generell machte es nicht den Anschein, als wäre das Zimmer frisch gereinigt worden. Leider fährt auch alle 10 Minuten ein Zug nah am Haus vorbei, sodass man besonders nachts nicht gut zur Ruhe kommen kann.
Das Badezimmer war ok.
Die Lage der Unterkunft ist wie beschrieben. Von der Station new cross sind es nur höchstens 5 Minuten zu Fuß. Auch die Beschreibung zum Haus war super.
Insgesamt ist die Unterkunft sehr günstig, ich würde sie jedoch nicht noch einmal buchen.
There are awful lots of things wrong with my stay. To start with, the room was half ready, no pillows. At a time, 8 people were sharing 1 toilet and bathroom and later 10 people. The heater in the toilet was very filthy. There was renovation going on around the property which disturbed our sleep (my sisters and I). Never ever going back.
Honestly? Next time we put money on it rather and take us a little more reasonable!
May well be that it is cheap and is very well rated, but if you travel for the first time to England (like my husband) for her shocked by the condition of the apartment, and the tiny room, the toilet (do not rinsed) and the house in general!
The house was fenced at the time of our trip, which is not bad per se ... but the train tracks next to that are not quite so friendly - kiffende- neighborhood of young people was more scary!
The path to the apartment, already shows that the quarter, one of the very poor areas in / around London.
I would look for guarantees here not even a flat!
The U rail connection is not exist- we have almost our flight verpasst- because gecancelten trains even though we were very early at all!
(Yes, the buses are ok, but go on Sundays even very irregular!)
So if you are accustomed to England and all that is very small and you from all points (as well overpainted mold) do not mind and you look just what insecure cheap, then you are right here .... If you want your luggage (or important things, such as flight documents and tickets) can not be in the apartment (can come in in the Everyone!), then the absolute is nothing here for you !!!
Ganz ehrlich? Nächstes mal legen wir lieber Geld drauf und nehmen uns etwas vernünftigeres!
Mag ja sein das es günstig ist und ganz gut bewertet ist, aber wenn ihr das erste mal nach England reist (wie mein Mann) seit ihr schockiert von dem Zustand der Wohnung, bzw. des winzigen Zimmers, der Toilette (die nicht spült) und dem Haus generell!
Das Haus war zum Zeitpunkt unserer Reise eingezäunt, was an sich nichts schlimmes ist...doch die Bahnschienen neben an, die nicht ganz so freundliche - kiffende- Nachbarschaft von Jugendlichen, war eher angsteinflößend!
Der Weg zu der Wohnung hin, zeigt schon, dass das viertel, eins der sehr schlechten Gegenden bei/rund um London ist.
Ich würde hier garantiert nicht noch einmal eine Wohnung suchen!
Die U Bahn Anbindung ist nicht die beste- wir haben wegen gecancelten Zügen fast unseren Flug verpasst- obwohl wir SEHR früh dran waren!
( Ja die Busse sind ok, fahren aber Sonntags auch nur sehr unregelmäßig!)
Also wenn man England gewohnt ist bzw. das alles sehr klein ist & man sich aus allen Punkten (wie auch übermalter Schimmel) nichts ausmacht und man nur was unsicheres billiges sucht, DANN ist man hier richtig....möchte man sein Gepäck (oder wichtige Sachen, wie Flugunterlagen und Tickets) nicht in der Wohnung lassen (in die Jeder rein kommen kann!), dann ist das hier ABSOLUT gar nichts für euch!!!
Clean and confortable. Near the overground.
Small but charming apartment and sufficient for a holiday where we spent most of the time outside. Sidney is very friendly! The apartment is clean and allows you to cook on the spot if necessary. 10 minutes by subway from London Bridge. By bus it takes a good half hour to Westminster.
There is a metro station and a bus stop at 2 steps from the apartment.
Very good first rental experience with Wimdu and Sydney. Thank you !!
Petit appartement mais charmant et suffisant pour un séjour touristique où nous passions la plupart du temps à l'extérieur. Sidney est très sympathique! L'appartement est propre et permet de cuisiner sur place si besoin. A 10 minutes en métro de London Bridge. En bus il faut compter une bonne demi heure jusqu'à Wesminster.
Il y a une station de métro et un arrêt de bus à 2 pas de l'appartement.
Très bonne 1ère expérience de location avec Wimdu et Sydney. Merci!!
