We have a huge room to offer in a premium location in Shoreditch. Buses and trains will take you anywhere in London, but why bother when everything is at your doorstep? Restaurants, bars, shopping, Columbia flower market and The City are just a stone's throw away.
We are renting the spare room in our typical & iconic refurbished East London council flat out, mainly to meet some new people in the fellow travelling community and extra cash to help with rent sealed the deal!
This is our first settlement flat after couple of years of staying at other kind souls' lovely houses during our own backpacking. There are tonnes of cool things around London to show you! Shoreditch/Hoxton is a key quintessential neighbourhood that is fast defining the modern face of 21st Century London. Our flat sits at the juncture where the artistic, trendy yet humanistic side of residential East London borders the intensive, glamorous and bustling Square Mile. There are incredibly interesting history at every street and corner - more for those who are keen on observing the phenomenon, culture and lifestyle of local Londoners in real time rather than her touristy side! There is always something going on nearby all the time - with more diversity and options than any other area in London in my biased opinion!
Shoreditch and Old Street is also infamous for its nightlife. The flat is 10-15 mins walk from the whole range of sports from bars to afterparties - advice and company is optional but recommended. ;)
Wherever you end up staying in London anyway, you must definitely come to our Brick Lane Market and Spitalfields. Our flat is just next to the landmark Shoreditch High St Church. There is a bus stop right outside, Bus 55 gets you directly to Oxford Circus, 48 directly to London Bridge and Waterloo. Countless bus stops within 5 mins walk will get you everywhere else in London. We are also in the middle of 3 tube stops - we're happy to provide directions anytime! There's a Tesco directly across the road. It's a stone's throw away from the heart of all action just down the road towards the City, but tucked away from the hustle and bustle at night. The Room is huge, with a king-sized bed and two desks!
The whole flat! We have a coffee machine and ample supply of tea and a huge bunch of food. There is also a complete set of cooking utensils, including oven, toaster, microwave etc. We have 2 toilets and 1 shower in the flat. The shower is upstairs.
Interaction with guests
We will try our best to offer as much help and advice about London as we can. We've lived in London for the past 6-7 years altogether now. If you're up for it, we may even be able to show you around. We are also respectable, and would give you the space you require. You will have access to a space that will not be disrupting our day to day routine in the flat. We are also usually out at work in the day. But we can definitely hang out when you like.
