The people in the house were quiet, no problem. The area was well stocked but not the best. Unfortunately, the quality of the house (including cleaning which was not done every day) left something to be desired for the price paid. Recommended for those who are just passing through.

Everything was as described, Jin was very nice. Nice clean rooms with Wi-Fi and comfortable large bed, much more we did not use as we were only 3 days in London and throughout the day were traveling. Apartment is close to the Turnpike Lane Station. LG Sandra

In JIN is excellent and friendly. The house is full of young nice touch. The room was really nice, spacious and clean, large kitchen was warm, we really did have a wonderful week stay. Now I'll talk about the best in Jin: geographical location in relation to bus access, and 100m from the line to Piccadilly Circus tube. VERY VERY WELL LOCATED, it is important for commuting one word: Thank you for everything Jin.

Difficult to give my opinion on this room since I did not stay. Jin, my host, had a small problem of room occupancy schedule. Jin is great, she organized everything to find me another room (more comfortable) in a house two blocks away and I was informed by email before I left. When I arrived, a friend of Jin led me to my new room. The new room was very clean, the bathroom / toilet as the food was great, no noise, roommates were all very friendly (I did practically not seen). Near the metro, nice neighborhood, some shops open until 11 pm. I am very satisfied with my stay in London. My only regret is not having met Jin but I talked to him on the phone and she is very nice. When I return to London, I would rent a room at Jin without hesitation. Thank you Jin.

Despite a small problem lock locked inside our stay at Jin went very well. She was very helpful, full of attention and really friendly. The location of the house is excellently located 5 minutes from the metro (25 minutes from Piccadilly Circus), quiet area just beside shopping street with everything you need to eat and shop. Just be careful with the lock of your room and your stay will perfectly ;)

Our stay at Jin's house was okay. It was a little bit weird, that we didn't meet her during the whole time and just contacted her every once in a while via sms,but that worked out fine. One of her assistants welcomed us and prepared the room. Our room was clean, nice & comfortable. There were two things that bothered us, but those are more due to the other visitors than Jin herself, I suppose. The house is really clairaudiant and with a room next to the stairs and a lot of people running up and down in a noisy way it was quite annoying. The other thing was that the bathroom as well as the kitchen were rather filthy and didn't really contribute to a pleasant stay. I'm sorry to be so up-front with my criticism but I think future guest have a right to know that. Apart from that it was a rather good accommodation. Thanks, Jin!
