My house is near the Books University which is located quite safe and tranquil area. It has five rooms and there are a twin room and two single rooms can rent for tenant . My nephew, Shawn , studies in Brooks university master manage this house.The room are quite big about 39m2 and the house is decorated again on June 2013. Each of room has bright light and clean space.The style of room is an uncomplicated and simple. All the shared areas are stopover.
The heart of the center of the city is within easy reach, with a good bus service running regularly from the nearby bus stop. The Oxford Company Bus No.400 & 8 & 9 to get into downtown and (website hidden) about 10~15m.
A twin room(£ 70) ,another is single room ( £ 40). The single room can reside two people that you just need to pay more £ 10 .
If you land at London Heathrow, there is a Oxford shuttle bus. You can take it and get off in Oxford Brookes University bus stop. This stop is near the house.
The best rate you can get in a short notice near oxford. I booked from Yu-jui four time and every time it is smooth. The host is really helpful and responsive. The care taker at the house is also really helpful and make the guests feel at home. I will definitely recommend AirBnb and Yu-Jui anyone coming to Oxford.
Yu-Jui was not at home during my stay, but he was really helpful and kind with me in his communication. The house is nice and the room is big,clean and quiet.. Jerry that lives there and welcomed me is super friendly and kind and made me feel at home! The other housemates/guests too are really nice!
Thanks to both you and Jerry!
Yu-Jui was a friendly and helpful host (e.g. he could help me out when I had forgotten my adaptor for English sockets). The communication was always quick and “check-in”/”check-out” went off without a hitch.
The room is quite big and very bright. It has all the necessary furniture even though some of it is quite worn down.
The house is located in walking distance to John Radcliff Hospital (~10min walking), which was very convenient for me. There are also shops close by (~10min walking) and a busstop (~5min walking) from which it only takes 15min to the city centre and where the Airport shuttle stops.
One should be aware though, that the house is shared with several other people (in my case we were 7 or 8 people) and there is only one kitchen and one shower. And the house is not really soundproof so I could always here my neighbors talking.
Another most comfortable and welcoming stay at Shawn's, my third stay with him and his housemates. Although at night the weather got quite cold outdoors for the time of the year, my room was wonderfully warm. This time it was a small one upstairs, and Shawn seemed quite apologetic about its size as he showed me in. Yet it was perfect for me, as I was travelling light and it had a handy desk - everything I needed in fact!
Shawn's housemates too were convivial and courteous as always, and given my rather flying visit I was glad to have some brief time to chat with them. I was still recovering from a recent operation on my wrist, and on my departure Shawn's friend and housemate Gerry helped me wheel my case to the bus stop, then kindly called a cab for me when it turned out that getting back to the train station by bus would prove more of a challenge than I'd predicted. Glad to say I got back home safe and sound! Everything so very much appreciated, and looking forward to another lovely stay next time.

A very quiet and peaceful room in a beautiful house with incredibly friendly people. Made me feel welcome from the time I arrived till I left. Highly recommend this place. Short walk from Brookes Uni and White Horse :)
Although I did not personally meet Yu-Jui, the correspondance was always quick, effective and friendly. Yu-Jui's friends Jerry and Florian were onsite to welcome me. Both were extremely friendly and helpful. The room is as described and very spacious. I stayed for a week and would definetly recommend this room, house and hosts.
