David was very welcoming, the house is in a lovely area with great walks along the canal. The house was clean and perfect for my needs!
It was a very good stay at Davids place. The host is very nice and helpful. The room was good enough for me. Very nice and quiet area near the nature. Lovely! Thank you David!
It was getting later and later for my appointment to arrive at Dave's place..flight delayed and then an appointment ran over by two hours so I was tired and disorientated by the time I could give an e.t.a to Dave. He kept in text-touch and must have been sick of asking me where I was and suggesting alternative ways of getting to his place. When I arrived he had the flat warm and comfortable and a great welcome. Dave was charming, warm and helpful suggesting activities for the next day in the area. He was helpful and flexible and I recommend a stay with him. Thanks, Dave from Paul.
We were 5 people and stayed at David's place 4 nights,
We don't want to descredit David's willingness to help us, to give us all the necessary information and his kindness - but there are a lot of things we have to say about the overall flat:
in the first place, the apartment was unbelievably, horribly dirty. I thought there were some cleaning standards an AirBNB member had to follow. There was dust EVERYWERE, not even a centimeter saved. The table where we had to eat was at first covered by it (even after the third try in a row to clean it completely, the cloth was still dirty).
The bathroom was filthy, we found hairs on the toilet seat along with a yellow stain. The shower was in a pitiful condition and hot water lasted little time.
The kitchen was very dirty as well, each handle of the cupboard had something sticky which we couldn't wipe off. Dishes and glasses had some opaque stains, so we decided to clean them and to buy paper plates and plastic glasses. One of the blankets had some white stains, too, still all of them were dusty: a friend of mine who is allergic to dust, couldn't stop sneezing, got sore throat after the first night and eventually fell ill.
It also rained quite much one day and water squeezed out on the floor when you stepped on some spots of the flat (expecially near the end of the wooden paving).
In addition, a noteworthy fact is that the apartment is where the host himself usually lives (initially we were suspicious due to the huge number of books on the shelves and in the bathroom (?), due to a playstation high up on the bookcase and to the beers in the fridge and at the end we got the confirm when the postman left a letter under the door addressed to David).
When we left, we didn't dare try to clean the flat.
The pictures on airBNB are HUGELY MISLEADING.
As I have already said, David was helpful and also came when we told him we weren't able to lock up the glass door - but we really had to struggle a lot to keep up with what he was saying, even if asked to speak slowler. Via telephone, we had to speak to a friend of his because we couldn't get a word of what he was telling us.
The position was not bad though, even if I'd rather live in a further flat than in an apartment that filthy.
We are all five sitting in disbelief right now reading all the positive comments and we wonder whether we actually stayed in the same place described by the previous customers (although we've just read some reviews of people complaining about our same reasons actually).
Definitely not a place we'd recommend to a friend.
David could not be more helpful. Very amenable host, if you have any questions, he is only to happy to help. I didnt spend a lot of time in the flat as I had plans. It is a very small flat. The location is very good. Its a short walk to Lea Bridge Road along the River Lea and lots of frequent buses take you to Hackney Central for Overground.
David was a great easygoing host, and it was a pleasure to stay with him. The apartment was a little hard to get to, with no tube stations close by.
David ist nett und die Wohnung ruhig gelegen.
It was my first experience with Airbnb and I absolutely loved it!
David was very friendly and helpful and the apartment was large enough to host five of us in a nice, green and quiet area.
The only thing I didn't like is that it took us at least 40-50 minutes to reach the points of interest we wanted to visit in London (I guess this is the price you have to pay in order to sleep in a silent neighbourhood anyway).
If you are planning to travel with small children and you don't want them to feel too much the pressure of living in such a large town as London I definitely recommend this place.
Thanks David, see you next time!
A place with everything you need and accessible travel links. David is an interesting guys with some good stories. Overall a very pleasant stay.
Friendly host, always very quick to respond and keen to help. The flat was clean and tidy, and within walking distance of various buses/trains. Very pleasant stay.
Great guest, i´d repeat anytime
Dave is a very kind and lovely gentleman. He is very tidy and pleasure to talk to!
Wishing you the best.
See you soon!
Nice guy, easy going, will rent him again.
David stayed with us for one night, and we can highly recommend him to anyone, he's great to talk to and respects your space, very reliable and so easy to get on with.
Thanks for staying David, we hope you had a wonderful Sunday, maybe see you at the pub one evening.
All the best
Jens and Sarah
David is very nice and friendly..
Thank you for your visit!
Very pleasant to have David stay - he called up at the last minute, which was no problem, and he stayed one night and was gone
David is a friendly, pleasant, guy. He's welcome to stay any time that he's visiting the North-East.
A pleasure to meet him.
