Guest will have their own room with their own set of keys and will be able to access all other parts of the apartment, including the kitchen where they will have full use for cooking and storing food. There's an extra mattress in the room if there are more than 2 guests.
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 house 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, some really nice traditional English pubs and the famous Deptford Market all within walking distance of the place. The place is very close to Goldsmith University campus, so could be an ideal base if you are visiting the university for a conference.

Reviews of this property
The room was pretty comfortable and there was a lot of space for our luggage. It wasn't super clean (which is why I can only give 4 stars) but for sleeping and eating it was completely ok! The kitchen has all necessary items, like a microwave, oven, a water kettle etc.
For the low pricing it was entirely fine and I would definetely recommend this for anyone who wants to visit the beautiful city of London without spending hundreds of pounds for a hotel. It is 10-15 minutes away from the next tube station and there's a sainsbury's quite close too.
Nous avons été très satisfait de notre logement : très bon équipement, literie correcte, endroit agréable sans nuisance avec une bonne situation géographique (à proximité du centre de Londres).
Très bon rapport qualité/prix
Me and my brother stayed here for a week. It is an apartment in an ok area around New Cross. We had a room with two beds. There were three other rooms, a tiny kitchen, a toilet and a bathroom with a shower/tub. The first three days we were nine people in this tiny apartment. It's ok because everybody leaves until 10 am for the city, doesn't return before aroun 7pm and doesn't use the kitchen a lot. So if you're planning on spending the day in the city and just the night at the apartment and plan on cooking huge dinners, this is a good room. It takes about 25 minutes to Tower Hill. No luxury, there may be a lot of people staying in the apartment and there is a lot of moving in and out. Just keep that in mind. Didn't get to meet the owners.
Expérience sympathique. La chambre était globalement conforme à la photo. Literie confortable. Seul petit bémol, la poubelle de la cuisine, toujours très pleine. + prévoir un adaptateur de prise électrique si vous venez de France ou d'ailleurs (Il pourrait y en avoir un ou deux à disposition dans l'appartement)
Reviews for this host's other properties
El apartamento está muy bien: limpio y bien comunicado (incluso se puede ir andando al centro). El único inconveniente es que solo hay un baño para las 3 habitaciones y a veces es un poco difícil encontrar el baño libre entre 6 personas. Por lo demás, todo bien.
The flat is very nice: clean and well connected (you can even go walking to the city center). The only disadvantage is that there is only one bathroom for 3 rooms and sometimes it is a bit difficult to find the bathroom free between 6 people. Otherwise, everything good.
--> HOW TO GET HOME:
At first it was very difficult for us discover what was the best way to arrive to the house, because we didn't know anything about London.
So, I will put here the best way we think to arrive to the house because we think it can be useful for another people.
We arrived to STANSTED AIRPORT, so we took the bus (airport bus express) number 11-15 to BAKER STREET, around 1 hour and 20 minutes because the airport is very far away from the city.
Later we took the underground from baker street to CANADA WATER (8 stops) and later we changed from canada water to NEW CROSS (2 STOPS)
1 hour and 40 minutes in total from STANSTED.
-->ABOUT THE HOUSE:
We had problems because the people who was before in the house took the keys with them, so, we arrived to the house around 11 p.m and we were in shock becuase we didn't know what to do. Fortunately, the owner arrived and opened the house.
The house was clean, confortable and spacious for us. The bed was not very confortable.
The people we there the house with were all very friendly so it was a good point for us.
the BAD THING for us was the neighborhood, It was not very clean in general, very dark without streetlights and we were really scared when we have to go home.
Sidney es muy buena casera. Tanto la habitación como la cocina y el baño están muy bien si lo único que pretendes es tener un sitio donde dormir y poco más.
La casa está muy bien situada, cerca de la estación y con diferentes opciones de transporte hasta el centro de Londres.
Das Apartement ist gut erreichbar. Man kann gemütlich was essen und trinken gehen, auch der Supermarkt ist nicht weit entfernt. Mit den öffentlichen Verkehrsmitteln ist die Stadtmitte von London in einer halben Stunde machbar.
Am selben Tag der Anreise wurde uns leider spontan ein neuer Raum zugewiesen. Sidney haben wir während unseres gesamten Aufenthalts nicht gesehen.
Über den Umstand, dass das Badezimmer und die Küche mit teilweise bis zu 10 Leuten oder mehr geteilt werden müssen, waren wir geschockt, weil dies in der Beschreibung nicht raus zu lesen ist. Die Sauberkeit lässt generell zu wünschen übrig. Als ich in die Küche kam, wurde mir klar, dass ich dort definitiv nichts kochen oder essen werde. Verklebtes Geschirr, verschimmeltes Brot sowie ein Untermieter unter dem Küchenhandtuch.
Angrenzend an die Küche befindet sich eine Treppe, die zum Nachbarhaus verbindet. Sodass das gemütliche Verweilen auf dieser eisernen Treppe nur zu empfehlen ist, wenn einen eventuell hinzukommender Besuch nicht stört.
Leider war unser Aufenthalt durch laut polternde Mitbewohner, die ständig das Bad blockierten, eine heraus gerissene Steckdose, Essensreste vom Vormieter, wackelige Klappstühle sowie ein stinkender Abfluss in der Dusche und nicht grade frisch riechende Handtücher geprägt.
Diese Unterkunft würden wir nicht weiter empfehlen!

È la seconda volta che alloggiamo in un appartamento di Sidney ed entrambe le volte siamo stati molto bene. Se non si hanno troppe pretese, rappresenta un'ottima soluzione soprattutto se si dispone di un budget limitato. Gli ambienti sono ben fruibili e puliti e, cosa da non sottovalutare, si raggiunge il centro di Londra in pochi minuti.
