The living space is really cool and cosy, The pub down below is a fantastic place to get something to eat or drink, and everyone who works there is fantastic. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to London.
The room was quite clean and cosy. And Nico and the staff in the pus were nice to us. Good place to stay.
Had such a lovely stay here!
Although we weren't around much as we were so busy, Nico and the people at the pub were very friendly and accommodating. Such a trendy flat and great location, up on the rooftop where the pub grows all their herbs and salads is just beautiful. Really appreciated being able to stay here, and The Breakfast Club nearby is also amazing for food!
Thank you fro a lovely time!
It was a good place, we never saw Nico, but the place is good, and well located.
Bring your plugs for the ears cause the street is extremely loud.
We had 2 stays with Nico, one either side of our trip to Italy.
During the first stay the pub downstairs was undergoing renovations which we weren't told about. the whole place smelt like sawdust and wet paint. This wouldn't have bothered me if we were warned about it. By the time we came back most of the renovations were done.
The accommodation is on a busy and very noisy road, ear plugs are a must!
The bed is quite uncomfortable, and the hot water in the shared bathroom was tempramental leaving us to have the occassional cold shower. There is a kitchen, but it isn't really useful, we had to eat our cereal out of drinking cups as there were no bowls and I'm not sure how often the fridge got cleaned out.
On a positive note, it is in a great location. Spitalfields is a really funky part of London. And the pub downstairs is great.
Overall, I wouldn't recommend staying here. I'm sure there are hostels around London that provide better facilities.
Great stay, convieniant location! Right around the corner from brick lane, spitalfields market and petticoat lane, Aldgate east train station very close by too.
Similar to the photos. No sound from the pub (good place to eat by the way)
Really close to Liverpool street station. Big clean room. Clean bed and towels.
The bathroom is a bit spartiate but not a big deal (enough pressure and hot water)
Visit the hidden garden rooftop, nice to see vegetables growing with a view on the City.
Really enjoyed out stay with Nico. He and his staff were very accommodating. The Culpepper pub is great too. Thanks
This is going to be a fab place! When I arrived there were sunny spells with a young crowd and a few hipsters hanging out around the ground-floor pub with its huge airy windows. The fundamental renovations had been completed but decorating in some of the spaces remained, nonetheless the somewhat shabby-chic result was fun. I'd be slightly concerned that there won't be enough sound insulation between the future first-floor restaurant and the second-floor of rooms above it, but given that this an inner city area and the place is on a busy road it's all part of the atmosphere. I actually used to live up the road (it's a great location!) so I'm used to the sounds of the city but if you're after a calm location this isn't it. This room is onto the side street so probably slightly better than the one on the main street. There's a separate stairway around the side to the rooms so you don't have to go through the pub.
Not an Airbnb it is a hostel. Internet doesn't work, key doesn't work at times, not helpful host - very bad experience in London. Stay anywhere else if you have the choice.
Bethan is a particularly kind and helpful hostess. Nicolas, the owner of the pub is quite lucky to have found such a professional.
