Donovan was quite a peculiar host. He tends to rearrange our toiletries, making it hard for us to find our things. Also in the morning, we were unaware of that his kids had to go to school. he would rush us when we were showering in the morning. Lastly, we had leave the accommodation early at 4am. Prior to that, we had to use the toilet. And Donovan came out to discourage us from doing so as the he claimed that showering was so loud that it was disrupting the peace in his flat. Very peculiar. Would not recommend.

Response from Donovan:
Unfortunately Yong's parents would have been better suited to a place all on their own. Most guests can work with a shared space and agree to limit noise after midnight so that other people can sleep. But these guests struggled to consider anyone else.

Donovan was very helpful and welcoming. The location is great with lots going on around, but also quite secluded as it's away from the main roads, bars and restaurants. Many Thanks!

Donovans place was in a really good location, it was literally less than 5 minutes walk to the Southwark station. We got lost on our first day there but as soon as we found it, it was really easy to locate. I suggest you use the restaurants as landmarks to help in finding which direction to go. The room looks bigger in photos and was quite small for us (3 people with big luggages) but that was already mentioned in the description of the listing and was no problem for us at all. Donovan was really helpful and even offered daily breakfast for us to eat each morning. His place was also very clean. The walls are quite thin though so outside noise can be easily heard (construction in the morning) but that wasn't really bothersome. I would highly recommend this place!!
