Ryan is a lovely bloke, very friendly and helpful, and great company. The flat is on the top floor of a block in Barking within walking distance of the tube. On the balcony you can see Ryan's two chickens and a great view over East London. Ryan is gay, I only mention this to deter any homophobes (lets face it, who is weirder, gay people or homophobes, yes, it's you homophobes). I'm straight... wasn't an issue...nor should it be. All round great fun, nice spot, recommended.

I had the greatest time I could have wished for with Ryan in London. We became good friends during my stay there, had great and funny evenings when I came home from work.
The appartment is luxurious and some days I could have stayed in the (more than comfortable) mattress all day long! :)
Ryan is a great host!! We will definitely keep in touch, I will never forget this awesome time.
You will not be disappointed!! :-)

Ryan is the ideal host! His place is situated only 5min from the tube and has a great connection to the city of London.
The place is very clean and you even get your own bathroom. You also get great view of Barking and London if you go on his balcony.
If you are visiting London for business or pleasure, this is the place to stay!

Ryan is a great host, the flat is clean and modern and the room is adequately sized. The fact that you have your own bathroom is fabulous - but book in advance, I tried to book again but someone else had beaten me to it! If you can get in I definitely reccomend staying with Ryan, perfect accomodation for a solo traveller and very close to shops and transport.

Ryan is a very warm lovely person and he will try to make your stay comfortable.
Location - zone 4 (East side) Barking tube station - the appartment is 10 min walk and it is a safe area to live in. The apartment is just as pictures show. It is very warm in the flat.

Overall it was a nice stay!

I´ve spent with Ryan and André one of most cosy and comfortables experiences in London. Both are really kind, funny and very respectful with guests intimacy. Great couple indeed.
The apartment is fantastic, warm, clean, quiet and peaceful, full of natural light; I´ve enjoyed the bedroom too much. And sunbathing at sunrise at the terrace is fantastic, with a splendid view to Canary Wharf.
Five minutes from Barking tube station, you will find out a very funny street market close to the apartment and all the services almost in few minutes (Tesco, Lidl, Pharmacy Boots, Bus, a little mall...).
Don´t miss it. You´ll be charmed, as me.

I'm a solo traveller from Australia on the road for six months. My visit to London was brief - 5 days - with all my time spent in central London. The reasonable cost of accommodation here far outweighed the distance from town. The tube was easy to utilise. I felt at home and the apartment was so comfortable and relaxing. Ryan & Andre are very easy to be around. I'm pleased I chose to stay here. I would do it again.
