The best value lodgings in London! Near CAMDEN TOWN, a fun and funky place with great music venues, markets, and food! Less than 10 min walk from EUROSTAR and easy transport links for all over London, the UK, Europe, and airports.
*You will be sleeping on a futon in the kitchen.* This is essentially a private room as I only use it to prepare uncomplicated meals and do laundry a couple of times a day, usually when you are out. You can be guaranteed privacy at night. However, I've priced it lower than a totally private room as I will need access in the mornings (8am) to prepare my own breakfast! I'm the only other person in the flat.
You have access to the kitchen and bathroom.
I have my own separate rooms.

Other Things to Note
This option would suit solo travellers/couples on a budget, users of the CS website, people who might otherwise stay in a hostel. I do not host business travellers or professionals here, it's not that kind of listing.
I only consider requests to stay from people with a face photo, profile description, and verifications. Please don't ask me if I'll give you a discount, accommodate more people or otherwise change my rules to suit you. No "landmark forum" attendees, thanks.
Please bear the price in mind; this listing is not going to make me rich! I haven't listed this space for money, more to meet people, so - I hope your expectations are flexible. This is a home, not a hotel; I'll give you clean sheets and vacuum your space, but the rest of the apartment may not be spotless as I live here full time and there is a CAT here! I just think it's important to be clear so our expectations match! Also, I don't provide towels (sorry)
Legal Statement: this is my sole, main residence used as a self-contained residential unit and not used for any business, trade or office.
I wake up around 8am; I will need access to the kitchen from 9am at the latest to prepare my breakfast! :)
There is no access to other rooms in the apartment, with the obvious exception of the bathroom!
Please be aware of where the cat litter tray is, don't close the door on it, so that she can't use it!
Please wash up your dishes before leaving.
Don't bring people to the flat who haven't paid to stay.
Please be quiet when coming back late.
DO NOT smoke outside the building or on the street. NO EXCEPTIONS. Smoke INSIDE the room. Ask me for an ashtray. If you don't want to smoke where you sleep then take the ashtray into the bathroom and blow out the window :)
* Please don't close your door when the cat is in your room. This is so that she can get out to poop. Important! Otherwise you might find something unexpected in your bed!
* If you don't want the cat in your room, just close your door and she won't come in. You can lift her out to move her if you wish (she doesn't bite).
* PLEASE REMEMBER TO LEAVE ME A REVIEW AT THE END OF YOUR STAY :) It will take about 48 hours for this option to become available in your 'dashboard'.
Finally THANK YOU for reading the rules! When you meet me you'll realise I'm actually an easygoing person :)
My friend and me stayed for a few days at Aaron's place. We both recommend him highly, as the location is just perfect for people who also want to see London beside its typical sight-seeing sides (:
Aaron himself is a very welcoming host who also took us with him to meetings with other travelers ((website hidden)). He is very open minded and joined us when we didn't know where to go out for example.
He also took us to places by car what we really appreciated. His cat is very cute and quite, the flat is clean and as mentioned before perfectly situated.
If you are a person who also wants to get to know new people and interact with your host, despite only the bare necessities, you are in best hands here (:
Really enjoyed the stay! (:
Perfect location for what we needed and exactly as it said on the tin. Al was very welcoming and flexible!
It was really nice to stay at Al's place! I needed a calm space and I find it. Al was here and very welcoming! If I have to come back to London, I will probably choose to stay there again!
The location is perfect, just between Euston/St Pancras and the centre of London!
Aaron is a really welcoming host, the place is supercool, tidy, comfortable and really well located (just a 5 min walk from Camden Town and city centre)
We really enjoyed our stay and we really loved BatCat!
We spent 4 nights in this flat. The owner is a very nice and kind person, he helped us, he gave us privacy and it was very interesting talking with him. The batcat is quiet and cute. The flat is very clean and it situated in a very confortable area that is very close to camden's market. We had appreciated very much Alex hospitality, we highly raccomend this place!
This is the PERFECT location from which to explore London! It is so conveniently located to major tube stations and in the center of all the action yet is tucked away on a quiet residential street. He is very respectable of your privacy and will help out in any way he can. Unfortunately he was quite busy with work the few days I was there and we didn't get a chance to hang out much but we had run into each other by accident the day before I was to arrive and had lunch together. He's traveled extensively and has many interesting stories to tell. Shared great conversations about everything under the sun. Solo female travelers would feel very welcome at his place! :)
