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.

Reviews for this host's other properties
The location is okay for London. It's just 200 m from New Cross Gate Station and you get to the Centre quite easily. If you expect to be closer to the City you will have to pay more.
We didn't meet Sidney but with the key instructions it was easy to get into the appartment. We had the Asian room with 3 people which was okay.
Not okay was the fact that there is just one single toilet and one single shower for more than 10 people. And you just need one person who doesn't clean up after using the toilet/the shower and the whole place becomes really disgusting. We had that problem and therfore wish that the facilites would be looked after/cleaned more often.
The room was not as quiet as the descritption would suggest but a look at the map and google street view showed us before that the house is located at a big road so we didn't expect it too quiet.
Would we recommend this appartment? In general yes for all those who need a place to sleep in London and know about the fact that you share a single toilet and single shower with 12 other people and don't care (you might be lucky and have other travellers who are clean, you might be less lucky - as we were - and live there with travellers who are not quite as clean as you wish).
We stayed in the presidential suite, which was a big room, with a double bed, a couch and table with chairs. While most of the stuff was obviously ikea stuff it was more than sufficient for the few nights we spent there. Unfortunately the room was next to a busy road with a lot of sirenes. I found it quite hard to sleep there. I recommend getting another room at this place. I also recommend reading the key instructions carefully ;)
We (family with 2 girls) can recommend this apartment, which is located in a quiet neighborhood near the river Thames. There is a bus stop near by as well as a grocery. Sidney is a very friendly host, who waited patiently until 3 a.m. (our flight was delayed almost 3 hours) to give us the keys and provide useful Information on how to get around etc. We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly come again!
nice location, good price-performance ratio, we will come back again
Super Place for trips to the city,
shops and great communication
kitchen, bathroom, clean rooms
wifi, washing machine
we had a nice holiday! the flat is very beautiful and clean.
it it not far from tower brige, about 20 minutes
Had a nice stay in London.
The flat is a bit outside but with a very good connection to the city via overground/underground and bus.
The room, presidential suite, was good. Very big, but too noisy, because of the street and with a lot of sirens because of a hospital nearby. Could hardly sleep there.
Would prefer another room next time, much smaller but to the back, there you don't here anything of the traffic. ;-)
The shower is very small but works fine, the toilet with a bin is separate which is very good since there are five rooms which have to spare them.
(The flat was well booked as we arrived, but there wasn't a problem about queuing in front of the bath anytime.)
The kitchen can be used, you have your own space in the fridge and there are enough plates and stuff.
Would book a room again, but next time one that faces the back. ;-)
We enjoyed our stay very much. Everything was as expected and the room had a perfect size for four persons. We never got to meet Sidney, but he was very helpful upon our arrival. It was easy finding the place and the keys, and we enjoyed very much that we could take bus number 453, which stops near almost all of the citys biggest attractions, directly from just outside the apartment. That made everything very easy and convenient.
I would definitively reccomend this place to anyone else going to London.
GREAT space nice clean shower and toilet. The road on the window side was quite noisy at night. But with some good earplugs we will book it again possibly. The apartment was really close to the metro overground station from where you are fast to any place in town in a sec. Thnx a lot!
Very clean!! Great location! Could not have asked for a better room for the price! :)
