Our home is a spacious, bright flat with high ceilings in a converted Victorian hospital in East London. Close to Liverpool Street Station with excellent transport links - we have the overground, tube, buses, shops & great restaurants all around the corner. It's an ideal place to stay as a tourist but also if you are coming to work in the city. If you want to experience a different part of London, this is the place to be! It is very eclectic with lots of creative people buzzing around.

The space

We are a friendly and welcoming couple. We love films, travel and meeting people from different countries and backgrounds. We like to make sure our guests are comfortable and happy, so feel free to ask any questions or for anything you may need via email or when you are staying with us. We are happy to chat but also appreciate your private space. As Airbnb guests ourselves, we understand what it's like to share a space and we know how important it is to find the right accommodation.

Our flat is light, large and spacious, it is on the first floor of a a converted Victorian hospital building. The ceilings are high and we have wooden floors. The building is a red brick building - to help locate it please look at the photos here.

The bedroom is an adequate size, next to the living room/kitchen. Please have a look at the photos here to see if it suits you. It has a Queen size bed, a small desk, chair, bedside table, side-light and cupboard. It is also has lots of natural light.

The house is always kept clean and we provide fresh, clean bedding, towels, shampoo and shower gel. Do let us know if you are cold and need extra covers or anything else. In the winter, London does get chilly and because of the space and large windows, the house takes some time to warm up, but otherwise it's very cosy and we often make a fire. In the summer, it is lovely and cool and the balcony gets a lot of sun.

We have 2 little cats, but they are very well trained and won't go into your room. They are happy to keep themselves to themselves! We keep the house extra clean, because of them. Feel free to get in touch or book! We look forward to meeting you.

Guest access

We are happy for guests to use all the common spaces, including the kitchen, living room and the balcony. We are very accommodating and will do our best to make you feel at home and comfortable to ask for anything you may need.

Interaction with guests

We are always available for questions/advice, via phone or email or of course at home.

Other things to note

Guests are welcome to help themselves to unlimited fresh fruit, cereal, tea and coffee.

Jumaan and Luca were great hosts who made me feel right at home and were always easy to communicate with. Their home is very clean and comfortable with modern amenities and fast wifi. The location requires a bit of travel by bus to reach the city center and sights, and it's a very hipster / gentrifying neighborhood, which may or may not appeal to you. I had a great time and would recommend staying here.

Everything about Jumaan and Luca's home was amazing, from the unique and super homely place, to the beautiful and amazingly house trained cats Stella & Luna.... and of course the hosts. I was only there two nights but felt like I had know them forever. We had long conversations about so many great topics and i they asked on many occasions if everything was ok. I already know I will be seeing them next time I am in London - goes witjout saying! Location is perfect if you want to discover nearby Shoreditch or Dalston. So many lovely cafes and eateries on the canal side.

I spent ten days with Jumaan and Luca and was really impressed with their kindness and friendliness. They are excellent and gracious hosts which is much appreciated when you're spending a long period of time in someone's home. The apartment was clean and beautiful, and the bed was comfortable, although the bedroom is on the small side. While not in the heart of Shoreditch, it is super easy to get around the city since there are overground and bus stations very close by. A homey place to stay while you're in London!

Jumaan and Luca's apartment was a perfect choice for me. It is just out of the Shoreditch fray for quiet safe sanctuary but in enough for visual energy and good eats. Jumaan and Luca have an easy share and openness of a good host couple within whose space you live. They know how to carve out private space for themselves as well as a guest. The apartment is clean, light and airy, comfortable, easily understood, secure, and quiet. The room is the same plus large enough for comfort and small enough to encourage you to be out and about. I felt comfortable using the open plan kitchen/dining/living room as well as terrace. The bed is very comfortable. The shared bath is well organized and clean so easily accommodating of three people. I was pleased to discover during London Design week the Geffrye Museum two blocks away. Urban farms, street markets, creatively designed urban spaces, public art, ethnic foods are all within easy reach as is downtown London by foot or bus or tube. Both Jumaan and Luca know their city and offer good recommendations. They are also interested in learning new things about their city from guests. I would not hesitate to return!

I had a wonderful experience staying at Jumaan and Luca's flat! Jumaan and Luca are such friendly, genuine people. This was my first time traveling alone, and staying here made my trip wonderful. Their home is very clean and spacious, with a lot of natural light and warm decor. The room is great for one person, with a desk and a really comfortable bed, with room for clothes and such as well, and I always felt welcome to move about the rest of the flat too. I loved chatting with Jumaan and Luca in the morning or at the end of the day. The overground is a short walk away and the bus stop even shorter than the overground. I spent a lot of time in central London, but enjoyed exploring the artsy community in east London too; it's a creative, safe neighborhood. I would recommend their place to anyone coming to London!
