About this listing

We have a large spare bedroom available for Airbnb guests. We live in a top floor flat in a quiet part of Hoxton, only 5-10 mins walk from Old Street station, Zone 1. Relax in our bright living room or on our sunny terrace overlooking the City.

The space

A large bedroom in our two bedroom flat. You will stay in our guest bedroom (approx. 18m2), with a double bed, space to work at a desk if needed and storage for your clothes. Some of our personal items are in the room (i.e. books, plants and posters). There is access to a bluetooth speaker if you wish to listen to radio/music and you are able to access the iMac with a guest login.

The apartment is on the top floor and has a large (20m2) roof top terrace with plenty of space to eat and drink when the weather is good. There is an open plan living/kitchen area which you are free to use if you wish to cook at home. We have a digital TV service with all major channels as well as Netflix, MUBI, etc.

Guest access

Guests have access to the whole flat except the second bedroom, where we will be. We do not provide any set breakfast but you are free to help yourself to any food you find in our cupboards. Towels and basic toiletries (toothpaste, shampoo, soap) are provided.

Jakub and Sam were friendly hosts. Their apartment was very clean and tidy. Beautiful furniture and great balcony! Communication and check-in was super easy. They had a list of local suggestions which helped in getting to know the area. Great location for discovering East London. If you are wanting to sightsee at the main attractions these aren't walkable however public transport is easy and closeby.

This is far and away my best air bnb experience to date in a private room in a house/apartment. Jakub and Sam were terrific, friendly and super-accommodating hosts. Very flexible to coincide with my flight times and allowed me to check in early, which after a red eye was sorely needed! Their apartment was immaculate, particularly the shared bath, which was better than most hotels. The bedroom was large and quiet and clean and the bed was very comfortable. The area is very engaging and hip, and it was a short pleasant walk to the underground/buses. The nearby pub, Wenlock Arms, was a great place for a nightcap at the end of the eve. All in all, I think there should be an override for an extra star beyond 5 for Jakub and Sam and their private room in Shoreditch.

Jakub was a great and very relaxed host. He was very accommodating with regards check-out time, was quick to respond to any questions and made me feel very much at home. His place was also very clean and tidy. It is located about 10 minutes from Old Street station and is about 15-20 minutes walk to the cafes, bars and restaurants in and around Shoreditch and Hoxton, which is a great area of London to be in. I'd be very happy to recommend Jakub's place. Thanks so much Jakub!

I am Jakub, 38 years old and originally from Poland. I live in London with my boyfriend Sam, who is 31 and an artist film maker. We enjoy living in east London and are interested in marathon running, art, film and music. I am also a keen kite surfer – Sam prefers reading books.

After having great experiences as airbnb guests, we have now decided to make our spare bedroom available. We hope you enjoy staying with us!
