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 maintain 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.
The apartment is really convenient if you are visiting the Olympic games this summer. It is just 20 minutes by bus to Greenwich were a number of events are taking place, and just 20 minutes to the stadium at Stratford, via the Overground and Jubilee Line

Reviews of this property
First of all, we would like to thank Sidney for a nice stay. The room was large and had high ceilings as in the photos. Everything was clean and our room was well heated. The great thing about the room is the location as there is a bus stop outside and buses pass constantly to the centre. There is also a tube station a few minutes away. We used the local supermarket to get food and make it in the kitchen. Overall we had a good stay and the price was good!
Everything was ok for me 3 night stay at here place. I had a great time in this place in London
I had a nice stay in London with my kids. Sidney was very kind and alway available for questions (regarding the appartment, public transportation, the city of London, etc). There is a bus station directly in front of the house. The bus bring you directly to the city centre.
Just a horrible dump, I do not recommend.
Ihan kamala läävä, en suosittele.
The room is functional and clean, ideal for people who come to visit and in this sense are out and about all day. Only black spot the shower is small and capricious (hot water not continuous)
But that does not diminish the value price of housing.
La chambre est fonctionnel et épuré, idéal pour des gens qui viennent visiter et dans ce sens sont en vadrouille toute la journée. Seul point noir la douche qui est petite et capricieuse (eau chaude pas en continue)
Mais cela n'enlève rien au rapport qualité prix du logement.
The room was not like the photo, shared kitchen and bathroom, 45 minutes from downtown. Value ok.
La habitación no era como la de la foto, cocina y baño compartidos, a 45 min del centro. Calidad-precio ok.
4 nights slept in Brazil cream with my husband and son of 14 years. Very basic room, 2 bed and mattress on the floor for our son. The room could use a little refurbishment. Energy saving lamp with no lampshade ceiling, top door with paper taped (to avoid viewing?), Curtains could use a wash. Small shower that smells very damp, separate bathroom with sink and mirror. Large kitchen which looks very neat and very clean. Our impression: very cheap lodging, clean but very basic. From Trafalgar Square by bus to the house is a few minutes as indicated in the description on Wimdu but surely 30/45 minutes. By train from New Cross Gate station to the center about 30 minutes. During our stay the other guests were quiet and clean, but there is absolutely no oversight from anyone. Sidney not seen all very anonymous.
4 nachten geslapen in Brazil room met mijn man en zoon van 14 jaar. Zeer basic kamer, 2 persoonsbed en matras op de grond voor onze zoon. De kamer kan wel een kleine opknapbeurt gebruiken. Spaarlamp aan plafond zonder lampenkap, bovenzijde deur met papier afgeplakt (om inkijk te voorkomen?), gordijnen kunnen wel een wasbeurt gebruiken. Kleine douche die erg naar vocht ruikt, aparte wc met wastafel en spiegel. Grote keuken die er heel netjes uit ziet en erg schoon. Onze indruk: zeer betaalbare overnachtingsmogelijkheden, schoon maar zeer basic. Vanaf Trafalgar Square met de bus naar het huis is niet enkele minuten zoals in de beschrijving op Wimdu aangegeven maar zeker 30/45 minuten. Met de trein vanaf New Cross Gate station naar het centrum ongeveer 30 minuten. Tijdens ons verblijf waren de andere gasten rustig en netjes, maar er is totaal geen toezicht van wie dan ook. Sidney niet gezien, allemaal erg anoniem.
We had booked (7 days 3 pers.), But obtained in the first book neither of Wimdu even a response or confirmation of Sydney in July. Therefore made a second booking, again in Sydney, but accidentally to another room. The mistake we only noticed when two automated confirmation e-mails have come shortly before departure, and we have noticed the same time that in July both full amounts of the credit card had been debited. The telephone customer service of Wimdu canceled us a room, and informed us that our host Sydney refused to repay the double booking.
The room we were given was not described, but another, smaller in same about 6-room apartment.
We liked not all. We think it's irresponsible of Wimdu that the credit card is charged three months ahead of the full amount, and that their confirmation e-mail system does not always work. It is also dubious that we never get Sydney to face, and emails were never answered, not on questions at booking later. He has a high amount of money we get for nothing at all, and does not respond. Lesson learned: We will never back services from Sydney Wimdu or avail.
Wir hatten im Juli gebucht (7 Tage 3 Pers.), jedoch bei der ersten Buchung weder von Wimdu noch von Sydney eine Antwort oder Bestätigung erhalten. Deshalb eine zweite Buchung gemacht, nochmals bei Sydney, jedoch versehentlich ein anderes Zimmer. Den Fehler haben wir erst gemerkt, als kurz vor der Abreise zwei automatisierte Bestätigungsmails gekommen sind, und wir gleichzeitig bemerkt haben, dass bereits im Juli beide vollen Beträge von der Kreditkarte abgebucht worden waren. Der telefonische Kundendienst von Wimdu stornierte uns das eine Zimmer, und belehrte uns, dass unser Host Sydney die Rückzahlung der Doppelbuchung verweigere.
Das Zimmer das wir erhielten war nicht das beschriebene, sondern ein anderes, kleineres in derselben ca. 6-Zimmer Wohnung.
Uns gefiel das alles gar nicht. Wir finden es unseriös von Wimdu, dass die Kreditkarte drei Monate zum voraus mit dem vollen Betrag belastet wird, und dass ihr Bestätigungs-Mail-System nicht immer funktioniert. Ebenfalls unseriös ist, dass wir Sydney nie zu Gesicht bekommen haben, und auf Emails wurde nie geantwortet, weder auf Fragen bei bei der Buchung noch später. Er hat einen hohen Geldbetrag von uns bekommen für nichts und wieder nichts, und reagiert nicht. Lektion gelernt: Wir werden nie wieder Dienste von Wimdu oder Sydney in Anspruch nehmen.
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. Then I refused to refund the money, not even a part of it.
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.
