Strange place this. Knowing the area and given the price I did not expect much, and this was actually better than I expected. The room (importantly the bed) was clean as was the hallway and stairs. Room was decent size with plenty of wardrobe space, chair, workstation etc, although the drawer units were pretty grim and everything is cheap cheap cheap!!!. Iron and ironing board, hairdrier and tea facilities were nice touch (but no coffee for some reason).The shared bathroom was ok - functional and fairly clean but no towels. House is easy walk to Westfield, Olympic Park, Stratford Staion etc, was very quiet and I needed a stopover at short notice following a long day working in London so no complaints there.
But...basically this a shared house, there are people living there. The kitchen has 2 fridge freezers full of food, the cupboards have food in and the bathroom has peoples `stuff` in as well.
Not that this was any problem but be aware - it is not a hotel or B/B - you literally are renting a room, and I didn`t feel 100% safe and secure (this not the best part of London and I did not see any fire alarm). Make sure you have the mobile phone number with you when you arrive as you have to call the and someone will come along (I waited on the door step about 15 minutes) and let you in.
Overall, served a purpose, was cheap and clean but not somewhere I would rush back to by choice.

Room Tip: Take your own towel. Have their phone number when you arrive.

This is a very basic form of accommodation but also everything you need to enjoy a comfortable stay in a good location in East London. The surrounding area has recently been upgraded for the Olympics meaning that there is plenty to enjoy in the local area. It is well located and close to the tube and overground rail station also.

The rooms are basic but the service is very laid back and friendly, not over the top which we appreciated. Would definitely recommend this for young couples or younger travellers.
