Interaction with Guests
I will be in and out of the house but dont keep a regular 9-5pm . I will be out and about assisting other hosts with their homes too but generally I'm available when you need me. I'm friendly but also know when guests would like to also have their own space. I will be present during your stay.

My Motto, "if in doubt, please ask" :)
Rather than choosing to stay in London a night, week, month or more you will do yourself a favor by booking this place. The space itself is always immaculate and more importantly extremely comfortable. My wife and I stayed four months. Our long term stay was not only a great experience in a great neighborhood but we had the pleasure of spending our time in London with someone we will forever call a close friend. Niamh went far and beyond to ensure our comfort on all levels. She was instrumental in our ability to navigate London and extremely helpful every single day we needed any advice. I am writing this review while sitting back home and all I can do is wish I was back at 102A Francis with my very good friend Niamh. P.S. the cats are just an extension of the kindness and gentle acceptance that we received from this wonderful experience.
Niamh is very kind and friendly! I enjoyed conversation with her. She told me her recommended places in London. She always helps me. It was good to stay here. I really recommended here!
Niamh war von Anfang an sehr nett und hilfsbereit. Sie ist eine sehr gute Gastgeberin.
Die Wohnung ist leider nicht in diesem tollen Zustand wie auf den Fotos.
Sie erschien mir ein wenig in Jahre gekommen und nicht sehr sauber. Die Hygiene war nicht außerorderntlich hoch.
Jedoch reicht es für Jemanden aus, der das Zimmer lediglich als ruhigen Schlafplatz benutzt.
Die Dusche in der Badewanne hat einen guten Druck und das Wasser ist immer warm.
Die Entfernung in das Zentrum Londons ist mittelmäßig. 20-25 Minuten insgesamt.
Insgesamt kann ich sagen, dass es in Ordnung ist. Man sollte einfach keine moderne Top-Wohung erwarten.
Und Niamh ist sehr nett.
I stayed here with a friend in the beginning of October. The host Niamh was extremely welcoming and made us feel right at home.
She has two lovely cats Millie and Billy who are just as friendly.
The apartment is located in a great area, 10 min walk from Leyton station. I was very comfortable and had a great time staying here. I don't think I could of made a better decision and the price made it that much sweeter! I would definitely stay again!
Niamh was kind enough to allow me to work from her home during the month I spent with her. A pleasant, relaxing, month where local amenities including groceries and the tube were close by, and where I was kept company by Millie and Bill the cats when Niamh wasn't around to sit and chat with in the lounge like we so often did.
The location, as mentioned, is good. It's situated close to Leyton station in zone 3 of the tube and is within walking distance of all the regular necessities. The room was as described and comfortable. The place is somewhat small (cosy) with one bedroom, a kitchen, lounge, bathroom, and balcony, but it was big enough for myself and Niamh to share.
Millie and Bill were also fantastic housemates, being two extremely affectionate cats, and I was reluctant to say goodbye when the time came. Niamh was a talkative, sometimes eccentric, but generally kind host who respected my privacy when needed and opened up for conversation when I was looking for it. I especially appreciated her helpfulness with all of the questions I had.
All said, this room is a solid choice for anyone looking for a place to stay in London.
It's been really a nice and enjoyable experience staying at Niamh's apartment!
The place is very cute and comfortable, and she is so warm and friendly that you just feel at home.
With regard the tube station, it is a 7 min walk along an attractive road plenty of food stores and markets.
I would come again for sure, and strongly recommend others to choose her home!
Niamh appeared to be a great host, very firendly and helpful though (unfortunately) we didn't have chance to spent more time in her company as we were constantly out in the city. Her place has a very convenient location close to the tube, shops and pubs ideal for the weekend or longer stay. I would highly recommend Niamph as a host as we really enjoyed our stay and her company (and of course the company of the lovely cats :).

About the Host, Niamh
Hi there everyone. My name is Niamh (pronounced Neeve believe it or not). I have been a host just over two years now. I am a very warm, open and friendly individual. I really enjoy hosting and I run a business called Host2Host Ltd assisting other Airbnb hosts with their homes. I love to socialise, write poetry in my spare time, dance and listen to rnb, hip hop music, I enjoy reading anything from fantasy, spiritual to a good biography or anything that might teach me something new. I also enjoy walks in the park, long drives and eating great food. I enjoy taking care of my home, yoga and two cats. I am clean and tidy and respectful of other's privacy and boundaries. I'd like guests who are the same and who are also easy going and friendly but respectful of the needs of others. Peaceful guests are most suited to my home. Feel free to drop me a line and ask me anything you need and I'd be happy to answer your questions. Please note I only host to those with valid verifications, personal photo and guests willing to provide feedback so I can continue to improve my service.

A little further out but they do delivery and I have a menu for you. Best Jamaican food in East London
Not really a restaurant but you can order from menu, there are other pizza places nearby but this one is my favourite, delivery in about 40 min(website hidden)tml
A little more expensive than ASDA but conveniently located on the high street to save walking into the complex where ASDA is. This is small but convenient.
