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) and bars 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.

Watch Out !!! I booked a room with this man, and when he had told me estava paid already occupied, but offered me another of similar characteristics. The site was an apartment under construction in the façade and rooms with a very dirty carpet (smelled), very old furniture and eventhough it guaranteed me two beds, there was only one bed ... and an old mattress to sleep on floor !!!! It took three days to attend the hearing without offering any solutions, so we had to leave the apartment and go to another site more habitable. He then refused to refund the money or even a part of it.
Watch out !!! I booked a room with This Man, and when i paid've Already Said That it was busy, and Offered me another of like Characteristics. The site was a flat in work on the facade and rooms with a very dirty carpet (it stunk), very old furniture and eventhough it guaranteed me two beds, there was only one bed ... and an old mattress to sleep on the soil !!!! It Took three days to make Themselves without offering any solutions, so we HAD to leave the apartment and go to another site more habitable.

Cuidado!!! Reservé una habitación con este señor, y cuando ya había pagado me dijo que ya estava ocupada, pero que me ofrecía otra de similares características. El sitio era un apartamento en obras en la fachada y con las habitaciones con una moqueta muy sucia (apestaba), mobiliario muy viejo y apesar de que me garantizó dos camas, solo había una cama... y un colchón viejo para dormir en el suelo!!!! Tardó tres días en personarse sin ofrecernos ninguna solución, por lo que tuvimos que dejar el apartamento e ir a otro sitio mas habitable. Luego se negó a devolvernos el dinero, ni siquiera una parte del mismo.

We had a very nice vacation in London. The apartment was almost as expected! At the Photos you saw a room with two beds inside, but in the en it was one bad an two matrass at the ground. The rest of the description was correct. But however, the apartment was clean an totally ok. there weren’t trouble with the other guests (shower, kitchen or toilet). The check in was also very easy. In total it was more or less what we expected and for the price totally ok.
Thanks to Sidney...
Nice place for a small visit to London. 30 min from the center by bus. Just what you need for a couple with two chidren.
We had the pleasure of meeting Sydney as we only stayed one night. However, instructions for accessing the property were not accurate and took little discomfort so that they were. The property is shabby but clean, correct other tenants. It is not a type suitable accommodation to go with children, although I must say I slept wonderfully
No tuvimos el gusto de conocer a Sidney ya que sólo estuvimos una noche. No obstante, las instrucciones para acceder a la propiedad eran precisas y se tomó no pocas molestias para que así lo fueran. La propiedad es cutre pero límpia, el resto de inquilinos correcto. No es un tipo de alojamiento adecuado para ir con niños, aunque también debo decir que dormimos estupendamente
Clean flat, helpful owner, good location. I would highly reccomend this flat.
We've been staying in this flat for three nights with our family of 4 people. The kids had comfortable mattresses and the bed in the other room was very comfortable as well. We found everything we needed in the kitchen and had a great time! The fact that we could securely park our car although we were really central was especially positive. We loved to go into the city by bus, there were several bus stops close to the flat. Sidney was very friendly and helpful and he managed to meet us immediately when we came in! Thanks again! Altogether, we would love to come again some day, it's been a perfect stay- only too short! :)
We had a very pleasant stay at the Heston House. The station was close and there were small shops where we could buy groceries. The room we stayed in was clean and well kept, the only downside was that there was a train going by every five minutes and the tracks were only about ten meters away from our window, so there was a lot of noise at night. For light sleepers like myself this was something unpleasant and I think it should have been made clear in the accommodation description. Everything else in the house was okay, the bathroom and kitchen were both clean. I would definitely stay at the house again, but in a different room at the other side of the building.
The location is okay for London. It's just 200 m from New Cross Gate Station and you get to the Centre quite easily. If you expect to be closer to the City you will have to pay more.
We didn't meet Sidney but with the key instructions it was easy to get into the appartment. We had the Asian room with 3 people which was okay.
Not okay was the fact that there is just one single toilet and one single shower for more than 10 people. And you just need one person who doesn't clean up after using the toilet/the shower and the whole place becomes really disgusting. We had that problem and therfore wish that the facilites would be looked after/cleaned more often.
The room was not as quiet as the descritption would suggest but a look at the map and google street view showed us before that the house is located at a big road so we didn't expect it too quiet.
Would we recommend this appartment? In general yes for all those who need a place to sleep in London and know about the fact that you share a single toilet and single shower with 12 other people and don't care (you might be lucky and have other travellers who are clean, you might be less lucky - as we were - and live there with travellers who are not quite as clean as you wish).
We (family with 2 girls) can recommend this apartment, which is located in a quiet neighborhood near the river Thames. There is a bus stop near by as well as a grocery. Sidney is a very friendly host, who waited patiently until 3 a.m. (our flight was delayed almost 3 hours) to give us the keys and provide useful Information on how to get around etc. We enjoyed our stay very much and would certainly come again!
nice location, good price-performance ratio, we will come back again
