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, some really nice traditional English pubs 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.

Reviews of this property
The (Aussie)room is as shown at the picture. Our stay was mainly at night time. It was very warm. Due to the noice of many passing trains and the muskito's we had to leave the windows closed. The room itselve was nice, light and clean. The sharing bathroom and toilet were sort of clean. The kitchen we did not use as we did go out for our meals. We do not think that this room is suitable for those who have difficulty walking stairs as you need to walk up 4 sets of 4 stairs. It is about 10 minutes walking to the nearest overground station.
Sidney selve was very friendley, helpfull and kind.
I think if he would do just that little bit extra here and there, it would make so much difference in the appearance of this appartment.
This room is located in a small apartment which has two other rooms. The apartment is located in a dilapidated building, kind of hlm. Pros: good reception, although very fast from Sidney, good bedding, kitchen access, affordable London, wifi access. Cons: all is not unique, even if the cleaning is done every day. During our stay, we were 10 people housed in three rooms! Bottling guaranteed the tiny bathroom and toilettes.Bref was a bit like being cattle. Finally, the apartment opens directly onto a railway line ... with a train every 30 seconds after 5:00 in the morning. Although this room is actually very close to the center by train, we will not renew the experience!
Cette chambre est située dans un petit appartement qui compte 2 autres chambres. L'appartement est situé dans un immeuble vétuste, de type hlm. Points positifs : bon accueil, quoi que très rapide de la part de Sidney, bonne literie, accès à la cuisine, tarif abordable pour Londres, accès wifi. Points négatifs : l'ensemble n'est pas propre, même si le ménage est fait chaque jour. Lors de notre séjour, nous étions 10 personnes logées dans les 3 chambres ! Embouteillage garanti à la toute petite salle de bain et aux toilettes.Bref, on a un peu l'impression d'être du bétail. Enfin, l'appartement donne directement sur une ligne de chemin de fer...avec passage d'un train environ toutes les 30 secondes dès 5 heures du matin. Même si cette chambre est effectivement très proche du centre par le train, nous ne renouvellerons pas l'expérience !
We stayed there two nights and had a great time. Sidney is very friendly, and is up to help if we need something. The other people on the flat were nice as well, the bed and the room were clean and we slept well. The bus is only 2 minutes far from the building and we can get to London easily. If you want to be close from London without paying too much, it's worth it.
It`s a nice appartement with everything You need and my room was o.k. as well even with free wlan.
I´m not quite sure if I´d like the area on my own at nighttime, but to travel into central London it´s still very good located, with overground and even bus.
The room was really spacious and the bed was comfortable. The bathroom and kitchen were clean and we did make some food in the flat. The other guests in the flat were nice and Sidney is lovely. He gave us a really nice welcome and offered us fruit and drinks. He also gave us all the information that we needed and made us laugh a lot. This place is good if you want to be close to the center but don’t want to spend too much money.
I been with my friend for 3 night and 4 days. Sidney was a good landlord and avalaible at my needs.
The double room was clean and hot. With 3 minutes you can be at New Cross station and with 5 minutes at the DLR station. There isn't carpet in the house.
Closer at the house there is a good pub, and one street full of the markets!!!
was a good experience and Sidney was a good and funny boy.
Sidney is a very nice host
He does everything to make the guest comfortable
My problem was that the cover on the bed was old and looked unfresh
I have allergies and sleeping underneath this cover was not a option for me
I phoned him and he brought a brand new one for me
Logement sale, vieillissant, mal isolé et ne représentant absolument pas la photo dans l'annonce. Moisi sur les murs, fuite d'eau dans la salle de bain et ustensiles de cuisine sales et en mauvais état.
Le prix est cher pour l'état du logement, mais une fois sur place, nous n'avons pas vraiment le choix puisque nous avons déjà payé...
- Chambre qui a besoin de rafraichissement (rien a voir avec les photos en ligne)
- Mobilier en mauvais état, prises électriques qui ne fonctionnent pas et fenêtres qui ne s’ouvrent pas
Seul point positive la localisation: A 10mn de London Bridge en transport
Processus très satisfaisant et clair, pas de mal à trouver le logement etc..
Au niveau de la chambre, elle se situe juste à côté d'une voie ferrée très très fréquentée, dommage que cela ne soit pas précisé dans l'annonce car le bruit est usant à la longue. Chambre propre et confortable.
Au niveau de l'appartement en général, rien à redire si ce n'est que la serrure à tendance à faire des caprices, on essaye longtemps avant d'arriver à déverrouiller la porte d'entrée (heureusement que d'autres locataires sont arrivés entre temps pour nous ouvrir !). Le dernier jour on a pu laisser nos affaires sans problème dans la cuisine puisqu'il fallait libérer la chambre pour 10h du matin. Bonne expérience
