One stop from London Bridge, this room can accommodate one, two or even three people (we'll put an extra single in there).
The flat has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, separate bathroom, microwave, fridge and parking. You also have your own key, so you can lock your room.
The flat is about 400 meters from New Cross Station, which gives you access to the Overground and the mainline railway (Note: the Overground is connected to the tube/underground - it just runs over ground - all tickets are valid). Deptford Bridge Station is even closer. From here the DLR (Docklands Light Railway) will take you to Greenwhich and Canary Wharf.
There are also numerous buses, which pass New Cross Road and go straight to central London, including several night buses, so you can always get home no matter what time of night! You can be in Trafalgar Square (by train) in just 15 minutes. The vibrant and eclectic area of Shoreditch is also just 15 minutes on the Overground. The location is ideal for any tourist or person working in central London!
So far all the guests in the flat have been very nice, interesting, responsible and very respectful of one another. I believe that they have all enjoyed their stay. The apartment is maintain daily to a high standard.
In the local area you will find everything you need for a great stay; there are 24 hour food shops, cafes, restaurants, supermarkets, some really nice traditional English pubs, a local theatre and the famous Deptford Market all within walking distance of the flat. The flat is very close to Goldsmith University campus, so could be an ideal base if you are visiting the university for a conference.
Guest have keys and are completely independent. They are free to use kitchen, bathroom and an other common parts, including outside space.

The description on the website is different from the real place. It is far away from London bridge and the room is too small to live for three people. It even cannot walk after we put our luggages in. Also the safety seems poor because we don't have to use keys to get inside the main gate, the house and the room.
This appartement was lovely and had a super quiet location and it was near (5 min) to the bus and metro station , we were very satisfied with this place.
Die Anfahrtsbeschreibung war sehr hilfreich, leider war jedoch der versprochene Parkplatz nicht frei. Wir haben dann an der Straße öffentlich geparkt, was in der Gegend leider nicht so angenehm war. Es ist aber nichts passiert. Die Bahn zu London Bridge war in zehn Minuten Fußweg zu erreichen und kostete return 6 Pfund. Es gibt einen hervorragenden Pub gleich um die Ecke - The Royal Albert. Das Zimmer war deutlich weniger glänzend wie die Fotos vermuten ließen, aber zweckmäßig für einen Städtetrip. Das gesamte Apartment war alt und etwas heruntergekommen. Die Fliesen bröckelten von den Wänden und das Wasser in der Dusche war fast kochend heiß. Duschen war teilweise nahezu unmöglich. Ohnehin haben wir im Apartment nur geschlafen und sonst keine Zeit dort verbracht. Alle paar Minuten rauschen die Züge direkt am Fenster vorbei, wir haben deshalb mit Ohrstöpsel geschlafen, die andere Gäste unbedingt dabei haben sollten! Es ist eher wie im Hostel mit zwei anderen Zimmern in Hörweite. Den Vermieter haben wir leider nicht kennengelernt. Leider stand die Haustür häufiger mal offen. Wir haben daher unsere Wertsachen nicht im Zimmer gelassen. Für einen Städtetrip aber dennoch in Ordnung, wenn man nicht zu viel erwartet, Ohrstöpsel dabei hat und gern heiß duscht! :)
Please don't stay here.. The place is terrible, it stinks and very dirty.There is no underground tube station near by, It is very far from the tower bridge. The description mentioned on the website was completely misleading. The place looks way different than shown in the photographs. We moved out of this place just in half an hour. That half an hour was also worst. We did not even bother to take our money back.
The bed was awful, it was so uncomfortable. Different from what we expected, one bathroom was not enough for all the people that was there. The instructions to find the apartment in the building was not that clear.
Could it be better.
O quarto é antigo, não tão bonito quanto mostrado na foto. A cama é de mola, parece ser antiga. Porém tem o (website hidden) lado passam diversos trens, então se você tem problema com barulho alto, não escolha esse lugar, pois o barulho me incomodou um pouco, mesmo eu tendo sono pesado. A localização é nos entornos de Londres, não é difícil de chegar, mas a vizinhança é um pouco esquisita, apesar de ser um lugar tranquilo. Resumindo, eu não me hospedaria novamente. A única coisa que realmente gostei foi do brasileiro que limpa a casa, é um rapaz muito gente boa que te dá boas dicas. Além disso mandei algumas mensagens pro sidney e não recebi respostas. Fique se você não tiver muitas opções. Afinal, Londres é a cidade mais cara da Europa.
Not very pleasent stay, the other guests were appaling and noisy. The room is small for the three of us, there's no sugar or coffee for guests, the kitchen is tiny, one night without toilet paper and the place was too crowded for just one bath. Just for the night sleep and think twice.
