Wacky place ! Friendly welcome (thanks Ellie and the different people we met every day) The photos are a wee bit flattering! Comfy (big) beds, great shower, really handy kitchen with tea, coffee etc which was a godsend ! Easy access to the tube and some great street art on the streets around. In all a lovely stay. It's just the smell of damp that made it less welcoming, which is a shame, because the apartment is great otherwise (it rained a lot when we were there so we couldn't open the velux window to air the flat)
The kiss from Marilyn is just amazing...
What a great surprise Hackney is! We loved it. The apartment is inside a studio space and the staff were great. We really enjoyed the apartment. Other reviews have noted the cleanliness of the bathroom, and that could use some attention. But overall we had a great stay and would stay there again.
Très accueillant, pas loin du centre en métro et à 5 minutes à pied métro.
The host canceled this reservation the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Très bon accueil et avec le sourire et les conseils, malgré une arrivée tardive ; super !
Les lieux sont plutôt conformes aux images montrées, quoiqu'en partie communs et non privatisés, mais rien de gênant car la résidence (d'artistes, au goût décalé mais sympa) est calme.
Le quartier est plaisant, en arpentant la rue on arrive sur des endroits jolis et sympas pour manger, sortir, trouver un mini cab, faire quelques courses, etc.
The reservation was canceled 10 days before arrival. This is an automated posting.
Very nice and characteristic space on great location. The lounge area is a shared space, but mostly you have it for yourself. And even when shared, it is with great people. Thanks for the nice stay!
This was a convenient and eccentric space, though I agree with previous reviewers that it could have done with a more complete cleaning of the bathroom, it was on the damp side. Very comfortable, but a little complex in layout and interactions. The entire time I was there there was a full-blown art exhibit directly outside, which was manned daily and had a number of the artists hanging out in the living room on the couch. This gave it a college feel that I wasn't totally prepared for. All of these folk were very polite and helpful though. I'd thus recommend this to anybody who already has experience with art-loft/functional studio environments, and is willing to engage with that kind of social engagement.
Leslie was a really nice host, she was available late at our arrival even if there was an opening event for the exhibition taking place in the gallery attached to the flat.
Funny thing is that the flat is really inside the art gallery, so you can visit it and there are always artists around during the day in the shared living room or kitchen. That's a thing you have to be aware of before booking! It also means it's not a place suitable for families and children, but more for friends who are in London to have fun.
It was in a great area, really close to bus and train stations to downtown. It's also a 20 minutes walk from Shoreditch, which is a really nice place to party and go out with your friends. I would also recommend a cool place to eat: the Hackney City Farm where you can have huge brunches made directly with products from the farm.
The only negative point is the price which was really expensive compared to the standard ones. We stayed 4 nights and we paid 227€ per night (without counting the cleaning) whereas usually it's around 130€ per night for this flat. :(
Rooms are really little but we were aware of that thanks to the pictures, and beds are comfortable so that's wasn't a problem!
I would recommend this flat for people who want to have a crazy experience in London, because it's really an original and funky place, with nice furnitures and decoration. If you're more classical, it's not for you! ;)
It was fine, thank you!
Wonderful guest. Lovely lady. Very clean, quiet and great conversation.
Desaparecida. She arrived here claiming for the energies deriving from both the sea and Vesuvio. Eventually decided to have her breakfast in bikini in the centre of the historical centre... finally desappeared without a word. Freedom is important! Hope she finds herself (we guess in Tibet)
Leslie herself was not staying at my place, but her friend Jelica and her boyfriend. They were boths very nice and grateful guests. It was a pleasure to be their host and everything went easy and smooth. Can only recommend to host these friendly airbnb users :)
Leslie was a great guest, quiet and appreciative of the Bali hut and the peace and quiet it offers. She can always come again, mahalo for your stay, Louisa
Leslie was very quick to communicate and to the point which made everything run incredibly easy. We enjoyed having her stay!
Leslie is very communicative person who at first glance sympathies person. After her departure apartment was clean. Communication was excellent and I recommended with any doubt to future hosts!!
Leslie is a down to earth person. I found her to be too relaxed with communication and cleanliness. She booked for 1 guest but invited friends to stay who arrived the following day. I would have liked to have met them or at least be informed of other guests.
Leslie booked the apartment for a night for his parents. Andrei and Jelica were very pleasant visitors even though it was a very brief visit.
All good. Only one night so not much to say!
Leslie and her friend are great guests: they were friendly and respectful, and they left the unit in great conditions. At the same time, they appreciated the beauty of the city and the apartment. In sum, hosting them was a pleasure, and I thoroughly recommend them to the AirBnB community.
