Reviews of this property
First of all, I travelled with 3 friends to London. As we arrived at the accommodation no Sidney was seen anywhere, only a French guy with a few command of English who lives in the apartment as well. He showed us around the apartment and suddenly it became clear that we should share this appartment with about 13 other people. That was a big shock for all of us, especially because there is only one toilette and one seperate shower! There I have to mention that the hydraulic thrust is too low. That means if someone flushes the tiolette, the flush doesn´t work the next 10 - 15 minutes. Furthermore our room (Asian) was very tiny for four people.
Besides that the accommodation is ok, you reach the city by bus in 30-45 minutes and the next supermarket is a 7 minute-walk away.
If you like to meet new people and do not travel with your family, the apartment is ok. But in my opinion the price is far too high, mainly because of the fact that is not your private appartment, but you share kitchen and bathroom with a lot of other people.
Sidney was super friendly and he will help you with you with questions. The rooms are clean and tidy. The location of the apartment well. Before the house is a bus stop and the road is a station down.
Sidney war super freundlich und er hilft euch bei gerne bei Fragen. Die Zimmer sind sauber und ordentlich. Die Lage der Wohnung gut. Vor dem Haus ist eine Bushaltestelle und die Straße runter eine Station.
moderately satisfied with my stay in sidney ... arrival at 20:30 no owner, no room ... sidney had rented our room twice! we finally got a room thanks to the kindness of a tenant who has kindly let us hers was bigger and took a smaller ... after regarding the condition of the apartment, he does not have to be very clean looking on ... more room was very poorly insulated, we were quite cold at night. some positives nonetheless, the beds are quite comfortable and the studio is well located, not even 200m from a train station and close to many shops open until late in the evening. short, quite disappointed with the home and studio in itself, it is suitable for people who just need a place to sleep and take a shower
moyennement contente de mon séjour chez sidney...
arrivée à 20h30 pas de propriétaire, pas de chambre... sidney avait loué deux fois notre chambre !! nous avons finalement pu avoir une chambre grâce à la gentillesse d'une locataire qui a bien voulu nous laisser la sienne qui était plus grande et en a pris une plus petite... aprés en ce qui concerne l'état de l'appartement, il ne faut pas être trés regardant sur la propreté... de plus notre chambre était trés mal isolée, nous avons eu assez froid la nuit. quelques points positifs néammoins, les lits sont assez confortables et le studio est bien situé, à même pas 200m d'une station de train et à proximité de nombreux commerces ouverts jusque tard dans la soirée.
bref, assez déçu de l'accueil et du studio en lui même, il convient aux personnes qui ont juste besoin d'un endroit pour dormir et prendre une douche
we were welcomed by Sidney, he is very friendly and helpful, it gives good advice to visit London and the transport to use. The room is simple, pleasant and comfortable layers are co-tenants are discreet and respectful. Very good stay in Sidney, renewing experience.
nous avons été bien accueilli par Sidney, il est très sympa et disponible, il donne de bons conseils pour la visite de Londres et sur les moyens de transport à utiliser.
La chambre est simple, agréable les couches sont confortables et les co-locataires sont discrets et respectueux.
Très bon séjour chez Sidney, expérience à renouveler.
I stayed 6 days in this apartment and I well appreciated the room (" australian room ") spacious, overlooks the garden, the very comfortable bed; as well as the kitchen with the possibility of cooking yourself. The positive points are also the fast access to the train (New Cross Gate station) which connects London Bridge in 7 minutes and Sainsbury's supermarket near Mansions.
Finally Sidney is a very nice host, very in the listening: it's a pity that my english spoken is very basic, what limited in a way our discussion.
I recommend this apartment for all the young travellers, curious, who wish to visit London, by saving their budget.

Sidney is a really nice guy. The apartment was really cool and central. Love to come back next month.
Sidney surprised us by moving our room in the flat to a smaller room. The room we were in had windows into the shared hallway that were covered with paper held up by tape. The paper did not block the light from the hallway. Late at night when other guests went to the kitchen and turned on the hallway light the bedroom we were in would light up. He informed us he had to move our room because he had overbooked. When we arrived the kitchen and hallway were cluttered with .construction stuff. All the rented rooms shared the bathroom. The shower and WC were in separate rooms. The room with the WC did not have a lock for the door. The shower room door did have a lock, but the shower was extremely low pressure on cold and low pressure with scalding on hot. I could not figure out how to adjust the temperature and pressure to soot. The bedroom door had a keyed lock, which was functional. Sidney was very pleasant to talk with and had thought thru providing refrigerator space and clean towels for our use. The room was clean and functional.
I needed a place on a very quick notice and out of 10 requests I've sent Sidney was the only one who responded timely. During the stay he responded quickly as well. He is a good host.
The specific room/place is basic and you should not accept amenities. It's a bedroom with adjacent shower and bathroom. There's also a kitchen you can use. The location is not one to roam around but if you are looking for just a bed for night as you are out in London during the day, it would do ok, especially given the very low price.
Great location, relaxed friendly atmosphere, would definatey stay again if in the area
