We are a young professional couple living in Holloway, Islington looking to share our affordable space. We love to travel and know it can sometimes be expensive, we hope our space can be handy for like minded people :) We work mostly at night and get home late so the flat is peaceful. We love meeting new people but will always respect your privacy as we value ours. We are happy to help with any questions about the flat, area or things to do so don't hesitate to ask. :) Je parle un peu francais aussi.

Tyrone made us feel very welcome and was very flexible with all our coming & goings. For the price we paid it was very satisfactory.
The room is very big for London standards, a tv with sky and a corner with a sofa is a plus (not mentioning spare Oyster cards plus city guides). Tyrone is a great and friendly host.
Tyrone was helpful and friendly yet allowing us privacy most of the time. It practically felt like we had the entire apartment to ourselves.
The room we had was spacious, clean and comfortable. We had no problems with the bathrooms, bedding and the other amenities.
We recommend this place to anyone who's looking for an affordable yet comfortable place to stay at.
Tyrone was a great, hospitable and accommodating host. The location is very convenient with the nearby bus stops and shops about a 10 min walk away. Really clean and furnished house. Definitely a great experience and we would love to be back!!
Chrystal and Tyrones' place was amazing! Such a large and bright room, with an awesome giant TV and lounge, it was a home away from home, and such a nice place to come back to after our busy days exploring London. They are so helpful when you need anything and give you so much privacy at the same time! I would stay here again in a heart beat, and would recommend it to anyone visiting London. Thanks so much guys!
Chrystal and Tyrone are hosts that adapt to the people who come to them. They are welcoming, and also know leave you alone if you want. They give good advices.
We (three girls) stayed at Tyrone and Chrystal's flat for 8 days and it was a very good choice! Even before we arrived, they were very accommodating concerning check-in and check-out times. The room was exactly as described, spacious and clean and we really liked staying there. Even though there are two tube stations not too far away, we often took the bus as there are a many direct connections (e.g. to Tower Bridge, Camden, Charing Cross, etc.). As described, there are spare Oyster Cards in the room which is very good if you do not already have one or want to buy one. There are also many grocery stores nearby but we usually went to a bigger Sainsbury's store in Camden because it had a bigger selection of products and was only 10 minutes away by bus.
We had an amazing time in London and a great place to stay where we felt comfortable. Thank you so much for having us!!
We only stayed for 2 night but everything went smoothly. We were met and given the key and made to feel at home. We were going to be out late and they told us No Worries. The room was really large and we could spread out which was so nice. The bathroom was clean and they left out clean towels for us. There was an elevator if you have trouble climbing the stairs. We would highly recommend their flat for your visit to London.
Chrystal and Tyrone were really accommodating and very friendly! The room was perfectly clean and having the small living area was really good as well. Location is good for London too- about a 10 min walk to the closest tube and about 15 mins on the tube to Leicester Square. Camden market is very close too. Would definitely stay there again! Thanks guys!
Tyrone and Chrystal are really nice people, they respect your privacy and at the same time they're really helpful if you need something. We spent one month in their flat; our room was huge, very bright and cosy, perfect for long holidays (we found three Oyster cards in the room ready to use). The neighbourhood is quiet, and the zone is great (30 minutes or less from London centre). Absolutely recommended!
