A microcosm of London's shifting ethnic patterns, the area around Brick Lane in East London was once associated with poor slums and the scene of the crime for the Jack the Ripper murders. Whilst the notorious pub Ten Bells still stands, the area itself is now extremely popular with London’s edgy and artistic crowd, featuring galleries, restaurants, markets and festivals throughout the year.
The Old Truman Brewery at 91 Brick Lane houses a vibrant market where up-and-coming designers set up shop every Sunday selling a unique variety of clothes, handbags and jewellery. There are also vintage clothing stores and chic boutiques dotted around the area.
As a hub of London's Bangladeshi community, Brick Lane has always been famed for its many authentic curry restaurants. It now also has a reputation for its warehouse art exhibitions and trendy clubs and bars. So, before your East London experience is complete, be sure to head to the Vibe Bars beer garden or 93 Feet East (150 Brick Lane) which has become an East End institution well known for its eclectic mix of live music and intimate atmosphere.
A really vibrant area with so much to do when you are not busy out there shopping.

Everythig was as described: the location was great and the place was very cosy - it really felt at home :) However, for the most of our stay, we missed the promised English tea.

Let's start with the positive part: the location is fine, close to the tube line. The local Indian and Arab restaurants/takeways are very very good. I do recommend Biryani house just a minute from the flat, the food is fantastic (if you like Indian home cooking).
The flat is cheap and the facilities reflect the price. First, the windows re single glazed, so the street noise is disturbingly loud. We were lucky be in London when the outside temperature was ideal, but if you are unlucky enough to stay there during winter, you will freeze.
The furniture was broken or stained, although the bed was fine.
In the small shared bathroom there was an enormous bath occupying 90% of the space. You can't use it for bathing even if you want since the plug was missing (similarly to the hand wash). And there is NO ventilation in the bathroom whatsoever, so you think twice if you want to do a No 2...
The bathroom door was catching the floor waking up everyone when someone went to the loo.

The location is very good, the neighbourhood is good, very clean room and facilities. Only the fridge is not working, but we bought food for the day only and have no problems. Tesko is just across the street and bus stop in 10 metres in front of the house. Never seen the host but instructions was given by e-mail abd was so easy to follow. Recommend the room and the host!

I truly admire our host, as all he did was to send us the instructions (we never met him) - and it actually worked out perfectly :) As a result, we enjoyed a very private stay.

I wanted to reach Kaz which was not easy, did not reply to repeated phone messages. If you want to communicate with him do it through the 9flats messaging, then eventually gets back to you.

We didn't meet in person, but he was reachable by phone and made sure that a problem with the heating was fixed pretty fast.
Check-in and check-out was flexible and good.
