The Space

Set in a Victorian Terrace, this cute one bedroom flat is located in trendy Hackney, with vibrant, interesting cafes, bars, gastro pubs, clubs and venues. Great location!

Stay in the most cutting edge borough in London! Dalston in zone 2 is the home of art students, artists, musicians and fashion boutiques. Ten minutes walk to broadway market with it's farmer's markets, boutiques and cafes.

The bedroom is at the back of the house, overlooking a garden so it's nice and quiet for sleeping. Towels and bedlinen are provided. Drawers and wardrobe space, new comfy mattress on bed. Modern fitted bathroom (the shower is unfortunately broken, hence the reduced price) with shelf space. Kitchen and living room open plan with dining table - all kitchen appliances, pots and pans, cutlery, utensils and plates, bowls etc provided. Comfy living space with leather sofas and view onto the main road. Warm and cosy, perfect for a couple!

Please note this is my home, but when I rent it out I make sure you have a wardrobe's worth of hanging space and some drawers in the bedroom for your clothes, and plenty of clear shelves in the bathroom. But it does still have some of my clothes there, and books and so on. It is like staying in someone's house, not a hotel - which I like, but I would not want anyone to be expecting a completely empty 'holiday home'.

There is one issue though - my cat. I was going to send him to a friend's but in retrospect he's far too timid and will probably have a nervous breakdown! This means he will still be in residence! I will still be in the city to clean up his covered tray if you prefer. I don't expect any guest to do this and price is now negotiable due to inconvenience (he will need feeding twice a day any time, or I can pop in to do this) this may cause. I make sure the guests are out if I do pop round too. I don't want to invade anyone's privacy.

Two minutes walk to Hackney Downs train station and five minutes walk to Hackney Central overground and bus stations (24 hour buses run from here) so quick and easy to central and north london. 20 minute bus ride or five minute train ride to Liverpool Street Station - all the tube lines are here! Easy!

Grocery & off licence store a few doors down from the flat, and Hackney Central has banks, Marks and Spencer, a large Tesco and other general stores. There's also a large Burberry outlet.

Free wireless and easy to use heating.

I will be staying nearby and will be on hand to take phonecalls or visit should any issues arise. Flexible checking in and out times.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Very well placed, Jessica´s flat was comfortable and cosy. Pumpkin made the stay more homelike and was a great host.
    we´re really going to miss her!

    The only details were the lack of kitchen chairs for proper meals and the broken shower, but that was no problem in our fantastic stay.

    hope we can repeat!

  • Jessica's flat is fantastic !! And made our stay in London very pleasant. Close to great restaurants and cafes, public transport and amenities as well as great shopping. Jess is delightful and super friendly as is pumpkin the kitty cat who stole our hearts !! Would highly recommend this affordable and cute as a button flat to anyone who is looking for a place to stay in East London - thanks again Jess !

  • Really enjoyed our stay here. Location was suitable only 10 minute train ride from central London as well as a 3 minute walk to the actual train station. It had everything we needed.

  • Great to have a couple days in a cozy flat flat with the sweet and playful cat named Pumpkin. We got a great rate thanks to Jessica. My only issues were the general cleanliness of the kitchen and the bathtub only option to the bathroom. It was otherwise ideal for our needs. The library was an excellent selection and the scented candles were a nice touch of luxury as well. The neighborhood reminded us of our old neighborhoods in Brooklyn NY (Crown Heights &Bed Stuy).

  • Jessica's apartment is even nicer than it looks in photos: it's clean, cosy and in a very convenient location. Jessica is a kind and helpful host, I definitely recommend staying at her flat!

  • really good value! jessica was super easy to communicate with, and apartment very cosy and clean. walkable distance to shoreditch (if you like walking).

    the shower handle was a bit broken, but given the state of the place, i bet it's already been fixed :)

    cat was fun and cosy.
