Interaction with Guests
I was born in London and live in the flat and can give you local recommendations and advice and answer any questions you may have. Check out my start-up Babelverse to learn more about me and what I'm working on.
*** Art, Parks, Dining, Coffee, Pubs & Bars ***
The neighbourhood has a number of excellent pubs (Check out Stormbird pub & The Sun of Camberwell pub), cafes (Daily Goods Coffee, Love Walk Cafe), bars (The Communion Artisan Cocktail Bar) and delicious restaurants; British, Gastropub, Spanish, Lebanese, Turkish, Greek, Jamaican, Nigerian, Chinese, Thai, Vietnamese and many more, are within walking distance! There are a number of very large parks nearby too.
You are also very close to the vibrant and very hip neighbourhoods of Brixton (Food lovers paradise, check out Brixton Village), Peckham (Micro-breweries, night-life, artists), East Dulwich (Posher, night-life, Indian restaurants), Dulwich Village (A village in the heart of London), Clapham (Restaurant and night-life).
This part of London has many green spaces and is a great multicultural melting pot and an artistic and diverse neighbourhood.
The flat is also walking distance to King's College Hospital and Camberwell College of Art as well as The South London gallery.
London is a HUGE city and has 9 transport zones! The nearest station is Denmark Hill (Orange Line on Tube) which is in the inner Central Zone 2 and is 5 minutes walk from the flat.
Denmark Hill station has great transport connections to all parts of the city from one location you can get North, South, East, West and Central directly.
Train journey times:
- 10 minutes to Victoria (Buckingham Palace, St James Park, Hyde Park, Kensington)
- 10 minutes to Blackfriars (Tate Modern, South Bank, Borough Market, Shard)
- 20 minutes to Shoreditch/Hoxton (Brick Lane, Night-life)
- 20 minutes to St Pancras (King's Cross, Eurostar, Camden)
There's also a bus stop 1 minute walk from the flat with regular buses. Bus 40 (London Bridge/Borough Market), Bus 176 (24hrs Soho/Trafalgar Square/Covent Garden/Leicester Square/Theatres/Musicals) and Bus 185 (Victoria/Buckingham Palace).
Bus 176 is a 24hr service that runs from Soho Central, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Covent Garden, South Bank, Waterloo to the flat so you'll always be able to get to the centre day or night.
*** To/from all Airports ***
The flat is easy to reach from Heathrow, Gatwick, City Airport, Luton & Stansted. Just bare in mind that London is HUGE and Stansted is not even in London!! The easiest and accessible is airport is Gatwick.
You can also get directly to the Eurostar terminal from Denmark Hill.
But please be warned! London is a really huge city compared to any other in Europe (10 million people) and you may be surprised how much time it takes to get around. Staying at my place is a very useful spot to get to all areas of the city from 1 point.
Other Things to Note
The flat has free high speed WiFi Internet throughout. A nice chunky FAST & STABLE 40Mb fibre internet connection, perfect for high quality video calling and business.
*** I can provide a 3G/4G SIM card during your stay. ***
If you have an unlocked mobile phone I can provide you with a 3G or 4G data SIM card (with £5 free credit), you just have to pick a data package (range between £5 or £10), useful for digital maps, live transport times and other apps that I can recommend to you when you arrive.
Please let me know how many SIM cards you need before you arrive and I can have them waiting for you. This is useful if you are a group and need to call or message each other since texts and calls are free between SIMs.

We had a very good communication with Josef. Quick and full answers to our questions. A few days before arrival we received a mail with all pubs & restaurants nearby: very attentive. The location of the airbnb is perfect for a city trip to London. Just 5' from Denmark Hill station. The room was spacious enough for 2 adults and 2 children to sleep in. Shower was good. Kitchen utilities too (although we've missed a microwave). We could use the living room to sit in during the evening while the children were asleep. We can recommend this airbnb.
My family and I had a really good time at Josef's! The location was great: far from all the noise of the city, but close enough to all the main attractions. I arrived earlier than expected in the day and Joseph was kind enough to let me in anyway, and he made me feel very comfortable. We had a great talk about subjects that we are both deeply interested in, but at the same time Josef was very discreet and always made sure everything was alright for us. He also gave us some very good tips regarding transportation and places to go. I strongly recommend staying with him if you want to enjoy yourself while in London!
We stayed with Josef for 5 nights and everything was perfect. Really great host, very nice location, cozy flat, our room was large. Josef was extremely helpful with additional information, he responded very quickly to any question that we had for him. We really enjoyed the stay and would definitely recommend it.
Josef and Anca are very welcoming, i felt like home while staying in their lovely flat, everything was nice and clean, he has lovely big bathroom with modern equipments :), Room was big enough warm and cosy with lovely bed, they were very helpful and understanding.
Flat is just 2 min walk to underground tube station and easy to get any where in central london. I will recommend to any one who is looking for quiet place near to central london and specially wonderful hosts.
Josef and Anca were fantastic. I felt right at home from the moment I was greeted in. The room was huge and the bed also a good size. Comfort rating is10/10 and the view from the roof terrace looking at the London skyline is amazing. I would recommend this to people looking to travel into the city.
I had a nice stay. Not close to central London but it is still easy to get around via the Overground.
It was a lovely room
the host are helpful and kind.
the location is a bit far from the centre but there is a bus to attractions directly so it doesn't really bother me.
한국분들은 시내쪽에 위치한 한인민박이 더 나은거 같아요~ 가격적인 면이나 시내까지의 이동시간을 아끼고 싶다면 그렇게 하는게 좋은 선택인 거 같습니다 ! 집 컨디션을 중요시한다면 여기가 좋구요:)
