Description
Description
One stop from London Bridge, this room is normally a twin but we can also put in extra mattresses and accommodate up to four people.

The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, microwave, fridge and parking. You also have your own key, so you can lock your room.

The place is about 400 meters from New Cross 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). Deptford Bridge Station is even closer. From here the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) will take you to Greenwhich and Canary Wharf.

There are also numerous buses, which pass New Cross Road 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 maintain 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, supermarkets, bars and the famous Deptford Market 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.

A 4 in a room of 12m2, this is very tight.
No contact with owners
IT takes 30 minutes by train to the city center but it is not far walk from Greenwich (very nice evening).
OK kitchen
of aging bathroom.

I do not advise, but this is my first experience in London (therefore no element of comparison)

Mi estancia en Londres fue fantástica para mi y para mis acompañantes excepto para una persona un poco más exquisita. Eramos 4, 2 adultas, 2 adolescentes, ESA HABITACION NO ERA PARA CUATRO, era para dos. Había dos camas y dos colchones en el suelo. Eso se llama HACINAMIENTO, no creo que hayamos pagado para dormir en el suelo, no nos podíamos ni mover. Viva la honestidad, si solo caben dos pues para dos. En eso, a Sidney le doy un cero. MUY MALl. El resto del piso no era un lujo, pero bueno...
Me gustaría matizar que entra luz para las 5.30 de la mañana, si teneis problemas con eso, otro rollo. Creo que no costaría nada poner unas de esas cortinas translúcidas, pero esto es un mal menor.
POSITIVO: Había calefacción y se encendia por la noche.Ya sabeis que en Londres siempre refresca. Las indicaciones que nos dio Sideny claras y concisas, encontramos la vivienda sin problemas. El barrio alejado pero para eso está el metro, más barato tomarse algo por ahi.
I LOVE LONDON

Séjour à Londres fort agréable !

Par contre nous ne savons toujours pas qui est Sydney...
En effet à notre arrivée après avoir suivi plusieurs recommandations reçues par mail (ou trouver les clefs etc...), nous sommes rentrés dans l'appartement qui est occupé également par d'autres voyageurs (ou non...).
Nous n'avons par la suite durant les 3 jours plus eu de nouvelle de Sydney.

Cependant le premier matin nous avons été réveillé par un homme (le propriétaire ? le gérant ??? on ne sait pas...) qui "gueulé" devant notre porte sur les voisins de chambres qui d'après ce que nous avons compris n'avez plus à être là...
Au moins cela nous aura permis de partir dans Londres plus tôt ;-).

Deuxième matin, le même homme s'est lancé dans le montage d'un meuble IKEA vers les 9h... dans le couloir devant notre porte... Marteau et compagnie bien entendu... (dur après notre sortie nocturne en boite)

Bref en résumé, nous nous attendions pas à cela... Nous avions prévu un petit cadeau pour Sydney à notre arrivée, nous sommes reparti avec.
Si vous cherchez un échange ou des conseils avec l'habitante, passez votre chemin.
Si vous voulez juste un endroit ou dormir (conforme aux photos) et que vous n'êtes pas un lève tard cette offre est pour vous!

Per farla breve la casa corridponde al prezzo per cui si paga.
Abbastanza pulita, però non è stato chiaro il fatto che il bagno era in comune con altre 2 stanze. Alla fine il soggiorno è andato bene e nonostante questo piccolo disguido non si stava male nell'appartamento.

The communication worked great before, but unfortunately on arrival has not worked. It has been said that we find a combination lock where we sollen..aber enter the code that did not exist unfortunately. thank god we have encountered after 20min 2 girls who had rented an apartment next door and who first let us through the inner door, finally we have reached someone on the phone who then opened our door to our apartments. The apartment was as far as "clean" only the bathroom not properly come very down and hygienic. yet enough the apartment for a maximum of 2 nights, you can of course do not have high claims.

Good and bad things about the room.

Firstly - the room itself is basic but everything you need - 2 twin beds, enough space, very fast internet access which was excellent. The kitchen had everything you needed - but was small and shared with other people - which was fine. The bathroom was clean - a cleaner came every day to take out the rubbish.

Cons about the room - the apartment is in "Lewisham Estates" - I am fairly sure it used to be (and maybe still is) housing estates. The neighbourhood was okay... but we could often hear people yelling at each other having fights and also people having sex. The walls were thin.

I had emailed Sidney 3 days before our arrival confirming he would be there to meet us. He didn't reply until 3am the morning we arrived (we were arriving from Australia at 10am) with instructions on how to get into the apartment. So when we got there, found the apartment in this old weird building, he wasn't there, I didn't have the email as we had been flying and didn't have internet access before we got there, and the only people there were some Spanish girls who were staying in another room in the apartment next door. Sidney didn't answer texts or phone calls. Eventually we found another resident who helped us but I think it was quite unsatisfactory that this was done so badly. While we stayed 3 girls stayed in another room in the apartment and they said exactly the same thing happened to them.

Sidney has a lot of rooms in the same building which he rents out to foreigners - I think he should manage them a little bit better because this is effectively his job...

Overall, the room is what it is - basic, but clean, it's what you need and was a very good price. I don't know that I would stay there again though. It's "10 minutes to London Bridge" on the overground which is quite expensive (up to 5 pounds per trip depending on the time of day) which means that what you save for the room you spend a bit of on transport anyway. It's pretty much hostel type accommodation so you might be better off going with a hostel closer to the city for slightly more money.

Sidney ist ein sehr freundlicher und aufmerksamer Vermieter, netter Kerl. Das Zimmer ist ok, hat allerdings einige Einschränkungen, die man wissen sollte. Es liegt direkt an einer Bahnlinie, daher die gute Anbindung an die U-Bahn-Station "New Cross", Küche und Bad sind stark renovierungsbedürftig. Für absolut pingelige Menschen nicht geeignet.
