Just 15 minutes to Trafalgar Square on public transport, your room, which accommodates up to 4 people (we have an two extra single beds), has a very comfortable double bed, a desk, hard wood floor, and it is at the back of the flat so it is very quiet.
The flat, which is very comfortable, has everything you need, including wireless Internet, a shared bathroom, kitchen, microwave, washing machine, fridge and a back garden. You also have your own key, so you can look your room.
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, responsible 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), bars and even a fringe theater all within walking distance of 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 room was a decent size and quiet with a comfortable bed for a good night sleep. The apartment was clean and well equipped. The station was a few minutes away and the buses to the centre past on the main road to the front of the apartment. We always found it easy to get to the centre. There was also big supermarket and places to eat close by. If you are looking for a budget room in London for a few days, this is a good choice.

Sidney's place is ideal for a short stay in London, if you are on a budget. The flat is very close to New Cross Gate Station, which connects directly to London Bridge. The trains run every five minutes and take about five minutes to get there. There are also many buses and night buses that run from outside the apartment. Inside the apartment we felt welcome and comfortable. The room was facing the back garden, so quite. Everything was cleaned daily. The Internet worked well. We have no complaints.

It is not correct to put a whole family in a very small room with a bed for at most two people and let the others on the floor!

Initially our host responded quickly to a couple of requests by SMS and phone but in the latter part of our stay he did not reply to our texts - hence the low rating. Also the sink remained blocked and for OHS reasons we thought this should have been responded to in a timely manner.
As overseas visitors it would have been helpful for some info regarding transport and shopping facitilies to be provided in the apartment on arrival. It is in the description online but we didn't think to bring that with us!
