Interaction with Guests


Stratford/Forest Gate area is a classic example of East London marked by incredible mixture of cultures, races, traditions. It is the heart of Olympic Games in the nearest past.

This area exceptionally well connected with city centre literally 7 minutes away from Liverpool Street by train.

This area is also very convenient for travellers from/to STANSTED AIRPORT thus many of the coaches go to London through STRATFROD. However other airports are also fine due to well-developed underground, train and bus connections in the city.

All TRAVEL CARDS and OYSTER CARDS are accepted. What you need is an Oyster card with One Day Travel Card Zone 1-3 cost approximately £5.70 per day. London is an expensive town so be prepared to spend.

Getting around


Here is the fastest way to the house: take a Central Line underground train to Stratford. It will arrive at STRATFORD’S PLATFORM 6. The other side of it is PLATFORM 8. From PLATFORM 8 take a train to SHENFIELD going through FOREST GATE. FOREST GATE is the second stop 2 minutes away from Stratford. Trains come every 7 minutes. From FOREST GATE STATION the house is within walking distance. Print of the map with the house address previously and take the map with you. Another seven minutes’ walk and you are home.

Other Things to Note


As a rule guests use standard underground map to travel around the London. This map shows major underground lines and stations only. However Londoners more commonly use an extended underground/train map that gives them more possibilities and flexibility when traveling around the city. Here is the link to the extended the UNDERGROUND AND TRAIN MAP OF LONDON:

(website hidden)

On the map the Forest Gate station corresponds to F/2 location next to Stratford. It is in Travel Zone 3 and again all major Travel Cards and Oysters are accepted meaning you don't need to buy any additional tickets. We are 7 mins 29 secs away from Forest Gate station by walk. Train from the Forest Gate station will bring you to Liverpool Street station in 7 minutes.


Liverpool Street is a perfect spot to start exploring London. Liverpool Street is in the heart of London's business City- with its panoramic views, dramatic St. Paul Cathedral, well known Tower Bridge, Tower of London and River Thames itself. It is highly recommend for every tourist to use the Liverpool Street / Forest Gate route for his/her trips thus it will save lots of time, energy and frustration. To remind you again: WE ARE 7 MINUTES AWAY FROM the LIVERPOOL STREET STATION BY TRAIN.
Please use this tip to help yourself make your trip to London as pleasant as possible :-)

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • There was a little confusion/miscommunication at check in because there was an address change we weren't aware of, but it was quickly resolved. The room was very clean and bright. No wait for the bathroom/shower. It is about a 10 min walk to Upton park station and a 30 min metro ride to the city center. But worth it since it was 1/2 the price of getting 2 beds at a hostel and it was a private room.

  • Ruslans was great!
    Everything was ready for us when we arrived. Nice and close to Stratford station, where we caught the tube each day to central London.
    Overall recommended!

  • Ruslans is very nice person.All is ok:)

    May 2014
  • We had an excellet stay in Room 1. All the house is very clean. The kitchen is large and we had plenty of pottery for cooking, and place enough to store our food (there are two frigdes). Beds and pillows are very confortable. We also used the washing machine without problem. The zone is very quiet (we even saw a fox when returning home one night). Unfortunately, when you are inside the room, there is no way to lock the door. We had recommended the use of locks to Russlans, since one night another guest entered our room at 01:30 am and switched the lights on, and we woke up completly surprised when we saw him inside. When you leave the room, there is a "kind" of lock (but you can only use it from outside). These locks are so easy to open, without using any tool, that they are symbolic. You have to trust the honesty of the other unknown guests of the other 4 rooms...

  • Ruslans place was good for the price! Its easy to get into the centre of London with the overground and underground. For the price would definitely stay again!

  • Ruslan was very helpful and the room was perfect.

    May 2014
  • We stayed for three nights at Ruslan's place. We didn't have the chance to meet him but ge has always been available for our needs, quickly answering our questions. We had a problem with our flights and he gave us information even during the night.
    Our room was the one on the first floor. The pavement was pretty creaky but the room was cozy even if quite cold outside. We rarely had the chance to see the other guests in the house and luckily we didn't have any troubles with the use of the bathroom. We noticed though that only one of the two bathrooms inside the house had a WC. The neighbourhood was extremely silent and pretty creepy during the night but one can get used to it in a few days. The house was at train distance from London centre and (email hidden) full of mini - markets and groceries, which we found very convenient. In substance, if you are quite unpretentious, we would suggest staying at Ruslan's for an affordable experience in London.
