The flat is 200 meters from New Cross Gate 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). There are also numerous buses, which pass the flat 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 and very respectful of one another. I believe that they have all enjoyed their stay. The apartment is maintained 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, a big supermarket (Sainsbury’s) and bars all within walking distance to 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.
The apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 20 minutes by bus to Greenwich were a number of events are taking place, and just 20 minutes to the stadium at Stratford, via the Overground and Jubilee Line.

What a lovely experience we had with our introducion to wimdu! After having lunch in the centre of London we were concerned that Sidney may have been unavailble as it was friday afternoon. However, Sidney came to help us with our suitcases. The room was cosy and adequate and the bed comfy. We also had access to the kitchen (where we had our own shelf in the fridge and a cupboard for our food) and of course the bathroom. We bought food from the local Sainsbury's and saved lots of money by making our own meals which was great as I am on a special diet. The area was great and we felt very safe as two women walking about at night. The transport links were very accessible with a tube station just minutes away. We had an amazing experience in London and would fully recommend this place to everyone. Thanks and kisses to Sidney and his lovely wife! xxx
The check in was very convenient as we arrived late. Sidney told us everything we needed to know in advance. The room was appropriate for a short stay in London since we only used it to sleep. The bathroom was small but clean. However you have to consider that the bathroom is shared with five other rooms, so there can be some waiting time if the flat is completely filled.
The flat was next to a bus and train station. It takes you ten minutes by train and 30 min by bus to get to the city center.
So I would recommend this flat for a short city trip if you are not going to spend too much time in the room.
We had a lovely stay in Sidney's room. The room was neat and warm. Internet was good. Although it's a shared accommodation there were no other people in the other rooms during our stay. The bus stop is outside and we were able to get very quickly to the centre. The tube station is also just about 3 minute away. We enjoyed our stay in Sidney's room.
Estuvimos muy agusto durante nuestra estancia. Todo estaba limpio y correcto.
La habitación olía a cerrado y había un radiador que goteaba y mojaba la moqueta pero por el resto todo perfecto. Bien situado, a 200m de la estación de tren. El propietario muy atento, nos dio buenas indicaciones.
After the last review we became a little anxious that the place was not going to be as we’d expected. However, we did have a really good time and thought that the flat was great. The bed was comfortable and seemed new (maybe the owner had replaced it since the last person’s complaint). The flat is located on a really nice street, which backs on to the Thames. You are basically on the otherside of Canary Wharf. We discovered that you can easily access the river by going out the back door.
Sidney was really helpful and came over to give us the remote for the garage, as we wanted to park our car.
We found the place to be peaceful with excellent connections to the central attractions.
We recommend this place for a short getaway in London!
The bed was comfy and the room was clean and as shown in the pictures. The transport links were excellent. Access was made easy by the use of key boxes, so we weren't under pressure to arrive at a certain time. Good stay!
Een prima locatie voor een stedentrip. Onze kamer was basic maar ruim genoeg voor 2 personen.(Afghan room) We konden gebruik maken van de keuken, incl ruimte in koelkast en keukenkastje. Het enige wat wij wat minder fijn vonden, was dat we de badkamer moesten delen met alle overige gasten. Niet iedereen liet dit netjes achter na gebruik. Het contact (mail en telefoon) met de verhuurder was erg prettig. Bij aankomst op het vliegveld bleek onze terugvlucht te zijn gecanceled. Na 1 telefoontje konden we weer gebruik maken van dezelfde kamer. Geweldige service. Dit adres is zeker een aanrader, ook i.v.m openbaar vervoer naar het centrum.Zowel bussen als metro zijn niet ver lopen.
Big room but not as clean as it is shown on the picture. I didn't use the kitchen because there was no coffee machine. The bathroom is not easy to use because there is no shelf and no hangers to lean towels. It is outside the city in a poor neighborough.
La chambre Est grande mais pas aussi propre que sur la photo. L'appartement est situé dans un quartier modeste à une demi jeure de train de la gare. Ni la cuisine ni la salle de bain ne sont attrayantes. Il manque de quoi poser ou pendre ses affaires. Pas de perforateur. Le système de clé est super et il fait bon.
gute Stunde Busfahrt in die City, Schimmel an den Fenstern, dünne Wände und Türen die auch mehr Dekoration als nützlich sind. Keine richtigen Lampen, nur Glühbirnen, Küchenboden ständig nass, wahrscheinlich liegt es an der Waschmaschine, küchenausstattung....man darf halt nicht empfindlich sein, was im Schrank Stand war schmierig und das Regal wo man seine Lebensmittel unterbringen sollte sah auch siffig aus.
Der Badewannenboden war sehr schmutzig, als Spiegel am Waschbecken dient ein abgebrochenes spiegelstück.
Ich unterstelle jetzt einfach mal das das die Bettwäsche nach dem letzten Gast nicht gewechselt wurde, es lag noch ein spielzeugauto vom vormieter unter dem Bett.
Wenn diese Unterkunft tatsächlich von WimDu getestet wurde und das hier den Standards entspricht war es für mich das letzte Mal hier gebucht zu haben, und für meine Freunde und Bekannten ebenfalls.
La habitación demasiado pequeña, eramos 3 , teníamos una cama grande y un colchón, si poníamos el colchón en el suelo, no podíamos estar de pie.
En el correo que me mandaron me ponía que había sala de estar y alí solo había una cocina en común.
El piso era muy viejo y había mucho olor a humedad, una parte del jardín de fuera estaba lleno de colchones , parecía un desguace.
Además el barrio no es bueno, el metro a partir de un horario no llega.
