One stop to London Bridge and just 15 minutes to Trafalgar Square, your room has a very comfortable double bed, a desk, hard wood floor, and it is at the back of the flat so it is very quiet.

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

The flat is 200 meters from New Cross Gate 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).

There are also numerous buses, which pass the flat 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, a big supermarket (Sainsbury’s) and bars 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.

The apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 20 minutes by bus to Greenwich were a number of events are taking place, and just 20 minutes to the stadium at Stratford, via the Overground and Jubilee Line

I had a nice stay in London with my kids. Sidney was very kind and alway available for questions (regarding the appartment, public transportation, the city of London, etc). There is a bus station directly in front of the house. The bus bring you directly to the city centre.

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.

La habitación no era como la de la foto, cocina y baño compartidos, a 45 min del centro. Calidad-precio ok.

4 nachten geslapen in Brazil room met mijn man en zoon van 14 jaar. Zeer basic kamer, 2 persoonsbed en matras op de grond voor onze zoon. De kamer kan wel een kleine opknapbeurt gebruiken. Spaarlamp aan plafond zonder lampenkap, bovenzijde deur met papier afgeplakt (om inkijk te voorkomen?), gordijnen kunnen wel een wasbeurt gebruiken. Kleine douche die erg naar vocht ruikt, aparte wc met wastafel en spiegel. Grote keuken die er heel netjes uit ziet en erg schoon. Onze indruk: zeer betaalbare overnachtingsmogelijkheden, schoon maar zeer basic. Vanaf Trafalgar Square met de bus naar het huis is niet enkele minuten zoals in de beschrijving op Wimdu aangegeven maar zeker 30/45 minuten. Met de trein vanaf New Cross Gate station naar het centrum ongeveer 30 minuten. Tijdens ons verblijf waren de andere gasten rustig en netjes, maar er is totaal geen toezicht van wie dan ook. Sidney niet gezien, allemaal erg anoniem.

Wir hatten im Juli gebucht (7 Tage 3 Pers.), jedoch bei der ersten Buchung weder von Wimdu noch von Sydney eine Antwort oder Bestätigung erhalten. Deshalb eine zweite Buchung gemacht, nochmals bei Sydney, jedoch versehentlich ein anderes Zimmer. Den Fehler haben wir erst gemerkt, als kurz vor der Abreise zwei automatisierte Bestätigungsmails gekommen sind, und wir gleichzeitig bemerkt haben, dass bereits im Juli beide vollen Beträge von der Kreditkarte abgebucht worden waren. Der telefonische Kundendienst von Wimdu stornierte uns das eine Zimmer, und belehrte uns, dass unser Host Sydney die Rückzahlung der Doppelbuchung verweigere.
Das Zimmer das wir erhielten war nicht das beschriebene, sondern ein anderes, kleineres in derselben ca. 6-Zimmer Wohnung.
Uns gefiel das alles gar nicht. Wir finden es unseriös von Wimdu, dass die Kreditkarte drei Monate zum voraus mit dem vollen Betrag belastet wird, und dass ihr Bestätigungs-Mail-System nicht immer funktioniert. Ebenfalls unseriös ist, dass wir Sydney nie zu Gesicht bekommen haben, und auf Emails wurde nie geantwortet, weder auf Fragen bei bei der Buchung noch später. Er hat einen hohen Geldbetrag von uns bekommen für nichts und wieder nichts, und reagiert nicht. Lektion gelernt: Wir werden nie wieder Dienste von Wimdu oder Sydney in Anspruch nehmen.

Cuidado!!! Reservé una habitación con este señor, y cuando ya había pagado me dijo que ya estava ocupada, pero que me ofrecía otra de similares características. El sitio era un apartamento en obras en la fachada y con las habitaciones con una moqueta muy sucia (apestaba), mobiliario muy viejo y apesar de que me garantizó dos camas, solo había una cama... y un colchón viejo para dormir en el suelo!!!! Tardó tres días en personarse sin ofrecernos ninguna solución, por lo que tuvimos que dejar el apartamento e ir a otro sitio mas habitable. Luego se negó a devolvernos el dinero, ni siquiera una parte del mismo.
Watch out !!! I booked a room with this man, and when I paid he said that it was already busy, and offered me another of similar characteristics. The site was a flat in work on the facade and rooms with a very dirty carpet (it stunk), very old furniture and eventhough it guaranteed me two beds, there was only one bed ... and an old mattress to sleep on the soil !!!! It took three days to make themselves without offering any solutions, so we had to leave the apartment and go to another site more habitable. He then refused to refund the money, not even a part of it.

We had a very nice vacation in London. The apartment was almost as expected! At the Photos you saw a room with two beds inside, but in the en it was one bad an two matrass at the ground. The rest of the description was correct. But however, the apartment was clean an totally ok. there weren’t trouble with the other guests (shower, kitchen or toilet). The check in was also very easy. In total it was more or less what we expected and for the price totally ok.

Thanks to Sidney...

No tuvimos el gusto de conocer a Sidney ya que sólo estuvimos una noche. No obstante, las instrucciones para acceder a la propiedad eran precisas y se tomó no pocas molestias para que así lo fueran. La propiedad es cutre pero límpia, el resto de inquilinos correcto. No es un tipo de alojamiento adecuado para ir con niños, aunque también debo decir que dormimos estupendamente
