Hi, I'm a Londoner and live in Hackney for it's incredible artistic energy.

I stayed at Khaldoon's for just over 10 weeks from September through until November. It was the location that sold it for me; a stones throw from the park and a 5 minute walk to the village. The apartment is big enough for two, and the big kitchen and dining table meant I was able host lots of meals etc.
Khaldoon told me that previous tenants had seen a rat and so he had resealed all the kitchen cabinets, installed deterrents etc. It must have worked, as I never saw any signs of our squeaky pests!
The weather has been incredible this autumn, so I often had the windows open. Being on the upper ground floor, with the shutters open, the apartment gets lots of light. There is a dehumidifier but I rarely used it. The heating and electric works on a meter which was also easy to sort.
I would happily rent Khaldoon's place again if I needed somewhere in London to stay. Although I never had to call him with problems etc. he was in touch regularly to check if all was ok.
I know it's unpleasant, but I have to be sincere. This is the letter I wrote to Airbnb.
This is a letter of protest for the conditions of the apartment of Khaldoon Ahmed, 8 Brookfield Road, London. We are leaving the apartment four days before the deadline after having found two dead rats (in two traps) behind the freezer. We had already complained about the hygienic conditions of the apartment, which was incredibly dirty and required days of work for cleaning. The apartment also has a wholly inadequate equipment: kitchen lacks the basic tools, the sheets do not exist (only three duvet cover to be used as bedding); the house is not equipped with a vacuum cleaner or appropriate tools to clean. The bed is broken and needs continual intervention. Some lamps do not work. One window glass is broken. And so on. Despite this, we have adapted for several weeks, until, about a week ago, we realized the presence of animals that ate the food left out of the refrigerator and rummaged in the trash. Yesterday we discovered two dead rats in two traps behind the freezer. (Obviously we ignored the presence of the traps). Mr. Khaldoon Ahmed proceeded to take away the two bodies, apologized and put the freezer in his position, without providing any intervention either cleanse the filth and excrement. We believe that this behavior is unacceptable. So in a great hurry we looked for a replacement apartment from August 25 to 29 (four nights) at Airbnb paying 593 euros. We ask that the additional cost we face is passed on to Mr. Khaldoon. Otherwise we will be forced to turn to the authorities to report the state of degradation in which is kept an apartment that is rented, kind regards
After that, mr Khaldoon apologized.
Airbnb reimboursed the four (final) days in another apartment e gave us a 200 USD$ coupon for the next reservation at Airbnb.
I stayed with my wife at this place for 2 weeks and smoke (cigarette) is the major problem in this house. We used room fresheners day in & day out and used to leave open the windows for a couple of hours in the mornings but by the time we head back home in the evenings, the house stinks of smoke. I stayed in winters and this problem is worse. Unless Khaldoon installs a smoke extractor or takes other measures, I do not recommend this place, specially for someone allergic to smoke
Apart from this issue, I have no other complaints about this place. It is located very near to Victoria park and is just 1-2 min walk to bus stops.
Unfortunately I wasn't on Alonissos during his stay, but my family told me that Khaldoon and his friends were perfect guests. They were friendly, polite and respectful during their stay and they left the apartment in good condition. I would recommend them 100% to future hosts on Airbnb.
It was wonderful to host Khaldoon and friend. They are warm, friendly and very polite and have treated our place like their own. We strongly recommend them as guests.
Khaldoon was a very nice guest. The flat was how i left it...
Thanks Khaldoon i hope see you again.
