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.
The flat 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!
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.
The apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 10 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.

A suite for the (deaf) President of cockroaches!
First of all this room IS NOT IN LONDON BRIDGE. This is a BIG LIE. The area is called New Cross and it is a dodgy, dangerous, dirty and very noisy area of London. What makes this place even more dangerous is the fact that the keys to enter the building and flat are always left in the post box slot right outside of the house for anybody who knows (or has seen) that they are there. There is an unidentified number of disrespectful people living and moving in and out of the flat day and night. The first night we were there, a guy left in the middle of the night (after slamming his room door and talking on his phone like it is daytime) without bothering to close the main door of the flat, so basically woke up and found the front door wide open for everybody to help themselves in the flat! Couple that with the fact that the keys for the building are constantly in a public space and you can see the potential for disaster. I was living for 10 years in London and have lived in very ugly places. This room / flat is a definite champion.
The president of the cockroaches must be deaf because the presidential suite is by far the most noisy room of this horrible flat. The building is located on one of the busiest roads in London leading to the port for France, so you can get the picture. I am not even bothering mentioning the non-stop buses, ambulances and police sirens throughout all night and day. It is humanly impossible to sleep. Since the windows are from the 50s, don’t expect them to reduce the noise at all – at times I really thought that we had a window open, but no, they were all closed. The first 2 nights it was really cold in the room and the flat and we only found comfort under the duvet; the president of cockroaches does not feel any cold.
We brought our own bedsheets and towel because we read that one reviewer came in and Sidney had left the bedsheets of another guest. Also, Sidney in his welcome email lets you know that you may actually have to sleep in dirty bedsheets – if there is no time to change them netwen guests. Having our own stuff proved to be a great thing - we even used owr own duvet cover. Although our bedsheets looked clean, they had big oil marks all over which we found quite disgusting. Also there was no towel. However, I have to say that the common areas and the room were clean. The toilet was taken care of on a daily basis, which is much appreciated given the number of people who use it.
Since there are 5 rooms in the flat and some of them can accommodate up to 4 people, you may have to share the TINY shower and toilet with up to 8-10 people at a time. In our case it must have been 6-7, not sure. Don’t bother asking how long you have to queue and hold your pie (and other larger items) in the morning and you must be crazy if you expect to be able to have anything near a normal shower after 4-5 people have done so before you. So, the bottom-line is that if you are a champion in holding your pie indefinitely, remaining sleepless or sleep regardless of what happens around you, have a 30 second shower and risk having dodgy strangers in the night in your room / flat, then this is the flat for you. If you are the deaf president of the cockroaches, it is even better!
The room is unfortunately quite different than in the pictures. Our allocated room was carpeted, had a really unpleasant smell. In addition, a dirty rag was left on the table. Generally it did not seem as if the room had been recently cleaned. Unfortunately also runs every 10 minutes a train close past the house, so you especially at night can not well come to rest.
The bathroom was ok.
Localization is as described. From New Cross station is only 5 minutes or on foot. The description of the house was great.
Overall, the accommodation is very cheap, I would not book again.
Das Zimmer sieht leider ganz anders aus als auf den Bilder. In unserem zugeteilten Zimmer lag Teppich, der einen wirklich unangenehmen Geruch hatte. Außerdem wurde ein dreckiger Lappen auf dem Tisch liegen gelassen. Generell machte es nicht den Anschein, als wäre das Zimmer frisch gereinigt worden. Leider fährt auch alle 10 Minuten ein Zug nah am Haus vorbei, sodass man besonders nachts nicht gut zur Ruhe kommen kann.
Das Badezimmer war ok.
Die Lage der Unterkunft ist wie beschrieben. Von der Station new cross sind es nur höchstens 5 Minuten zu Fuß. Auch die Beschreibung zum Haus war super.
Insgesamt ist die Unterkunft sehr günstig, ich würde sie jedoch nicht noch einmal buchen.
Honestly? Next time we put money on it rather and take us a little more reasonable!
May well be that it is cheap and is very well rated, but if you travel for the first time to England (like my husband) for her shocked by the condition of the apartment, and the tiny room, the toilet (do not rinsed) and the house in general!
The house was fenced at the time of our trip, which is not bad per se ... but the train tracks next to that are not quite so friendly - kiffende- neighborhood of young people was more scary!
The path to the apartment, already shows that the quarter, one of the very poor areas in / around London.
I would look for guarantees here not even a flat!
The U rail connection is not exist- we have almost our flight verpasst- because gecancelten trains even though we were very early at all!
(Yes, the buses are ok, but go on Sundays even very irregular!)
So if you are accustomed to England and all that is very small and you from all points (as well overpainted mold) do not mind and you look just what insecure cheap, then you are right here .... If you want your luggage (or important things, such as flight documents and tickets) can not be in the apartment (can come in in the Everyone!), then the absolute is nothing here for you !!!
Ganz ehrlich? Nächstes mal legen wir lieber Geld drauf und nehmen uns etwas vernünftigeres!
Mag ja sein das es günstig ist und ganz gut bewertet ist, aber wenn ihr das erste mal nach England reist (wie mein Mann) seit ihr schockiert von dem Zustand der Wohnung, bzw. des winzigen Zimmers, der Toilette (die nicht spült) und dem Haus generell!
Das Haus war zum Zeitpunkt unserer Reise eingezäunt, was an sich nichts schlimmes ist...doch die Bahnschienen neben an, die nicht ganz so freundliche - kiffende- Nachbarschaft von Jugendlichen, war eher angsteinflößend!
Der Weg zu der Wohnung hin, zeigt schon, dass das viertel, eins der sehr schlechten Gegenden bei/rund um London ist.
Ich würde hier garantiert nicht noch einmal eine Wohnung suchen!
Die U Bahn Anbindung ist nicht die beste- wir haben wegen gecancelten Zügen fast unseren Flug verpasst- obwohl wir SEHR früh dran waren!
( Ja die Busse sind ok, fahren aber Sonntags auch nur sehr unregelmäßig!)
Also wenn man England gewohnt ist bzw. das alles sehr klein ist & man sich aus allen Punkten (wie auch übermalter Schimmel) nichts ausmacht und man nur was unsicheres billiges sucht, DANN ist man hier richtig....möchte man sein Gepäck (oder wichtige Sachen, wie Flugunterlagen und Tickets) nicht in der Wohnung lassen (in die Jeder rein kommen kann!), dann ist das hier ABSOLUT gar nichts für euch!!!
Unless you need to stay in a very cheap place, I won't advise this "Presidential Suite". There are only two good points : it's cheap and it is relatively clean. On the negative side :
- It is very noisy : the noise of the traffic will prevent anyone to sleep unless you are equiped with wax ear plug.
- As far as public transport is concerned, it is badly serviced : 20 minutes to London Bridge by bus ; you'll need to change the underground twice for a wholes journey of 40 minutes to get to downtown (piccadilly circus)
- one tiny shower ; one toilet that is in the same room of the lavatory. It would be ok if not for the 8 people or more that stay in the appartment : "Presidential Suite" is only one of the room that are rented here. Prepare then for queueing up in the morning, waiting your turn to go to the loo or to brush your teeth.
very confort,all ok!
The location of the property is well located, within walking distance of overground and a supermarket. Sidney we not met at any time and did not answer our emails quickly when needed. The property was decent: the kitchen and bathroom were not very clean; and although the room was large had no closet. We were 4 people and two had to sleep on the floor with mattresses. The Presidential Suite elapsed faces a street with heavy traffic, so it was quite noisy at any time of day or night. I think the images get to see something that is not, so it was a bit disappointing when we arrived and saw that there were many different things. Usually we had no problem, but do not think we repeated accommodation when we return.

La localización de la propiedad está bien situada, a poca distancia del overground y también de un supermercado. No conocimos a Sidney en ningún momento y tampoco contestó con rapidez a nuestros mails cuando lo necesitábamos. La propiedad era decente: la cocina y el baño no estaban demasiado limpios; y aunque la habitación era grande no disponía de armario. Éramos 4 personas y dos tuvimos que dormir en el suelo con colchones. La Suite Presidencial da a una calle transcurrida con mucho tráfico, así que había bastante ruido a cualquier hora del día o de la noche. Creo que las imágenes te dan a ver algo que no es, así que fue un poco decepcionante cuando llegamos y vimos que había muchas cosas diferentes. Por lo general no tuvimos ningún problema, pero no creo que volvamos a repetir alojamiento cuando volvamos.

4 nights slept in Brazil cream with my husband and son of 14 years. Very basic room, 2 bed and mattress on the floor for our son. The room could use a little refurbishment. Energy saving lamp with no lampshade ceiling, top door with paper taped (to avoid viewing?), Curtains could use a wash. Small shower that smells very damp, separate bathroom with sink and mirror. Large kitchen which looks very neat and very clean. Our impression: very cheap lodging, clean but very basic. From Trafalgar Square by bus to the house is a few minutes as indicated in the description on Wimdu but surely 30/45 minutes. By train from New Cross Gate station to the center about 30 minutes. During our stay the other guests were quiet and clean, but there is absolutely no oversight from anyone. Sidney not seen all very anonymous.
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.
We had booked (7 days 3 pers.), But obtained in the first book neither of Wimdu even a response or confirmation of Sydney in July. Therefore made a second booking, again in Sydney, but accidentally to another room. The mistake we only noticed when two automated confirmation e-mails have come shortly before departure, and we have noticed the same time that in July both full amounts of the credit card had been debited. The telephone customer service of Wimdu canceled us a room, and informed us that our host Sydney refused to repay the double booking.
The room we were given was not described, but another, smaller in same about 6-room apartment.
We liked not all. We think it's irresponsible of Wimdu that the credit card is charged three months ahead of the full amount, and that their confirmation e-mail system does not always work. It is also dubious that we never get Sydney to face, and emails were never answered, not on questions at booking later. He has a high amount of money we get for nothing at all, and does not respond. Lesson learned: We will never back services from Sydney Wimdu or avail.
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.
Watch Out !!! I booked a room with this man, and when he had told me estava paid already occupied, but offered me another of similar characteristics. The site was an apartment under construction in the façade and rooms with a very dirty carpet (smelled), very old furniture and eventhough it guaranteed me two beds, there was only one bed ... and an old mattress to sleep on floor !!!! It took three days to attend the hearing 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 or even a part of it.
Watch out !!! I booked a room with This Man, and when i paid've Already Said That it was busy, and Offered me another of like 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. Then I refused to refund the money, not even a part of it.
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.
