You are welcomed into one of the funniest house on Bricklane!!!
I am renting my room in a shared house. The location couldn't be better for travellers : 2 min from the tube (district line, aldgate east), shops, restaurants, market, coffee shops, bars and night life..
7 people in the house (me included, but I'll be away) + 2 cats (pets friendly recommended, they are lovely!!), everybody is really friendly and between 21 and 25 years old.
We have a rooftop, that's a major plus (sunset, BBQ...)
Welcome to 6A Bricklane, the crazy and funny jungle!
If you're looking for a great location, a friendly place and a chance to exchange with me and my roomates, this is a place for you!
I'm renting my double bed room while I'm away on holidays, and you have everything you need inside : speakers, closet, mirror, hair dryer, english and french plugs, books... I live here all year long so obviously my room is full of photos and personnal items.
We are 7 : Louis (Australian), Rosie Cameron and Calum (English), Godze (Turkish) and Chloé and me (French) and or two cats (Dobby and Nalah) who are probably trilingual by now!
This house is soooo welcoming, you will feel at home if you like to talk to people and exchange about your experiences, and also if you're looking for tips while travelling into London!
It can be a bit noisy because of everybody's presence (especially on the weekend), but my room is really quite and is facing the neighboor's yard (so no street noise).
Bricklane is FANTASTIC during the weekend (also during the week by the way), with all the markets around, the food, the vintage shops...
I would recommend this place for solo travellers or young couples as we are between 21 and 25 years old and all the house is shared (except the bedroom obviously).
I wouldn't recommend it to people allergic to cats and/or dust as we have carpet on the floor.
You'll have access to the bedroom (lock on the door) and all the shared areas : kitchen with your own space in the fridge, living room, bathroom, toilets, deck and rooftop.
Everybody has his own bedroom, except Louis who is sleeping in the living room, but he really uses it at night time (when the door is closed, it means private), it is still the living room during the rest of the day, with a piano and paintings on the walls (the famous jungle painted by Chloé).
The access to the rooftop is with a ladder, you get used to it very quickly!
I will try to be here at your arrival if I am not already gone on holidays (as I am renting the room only when I'm away for a while), otherwise you can contact me by airbnb and I can also give you my (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) number if needed when you're settled.
I'm in constant communication with my housemates and they are very friendly and can help you with anything.
6A Bricklane is a family, the house is constantly living and moving, except when everybody is at work.
We don't mind the noise, as long as it is respectful for everybody !
Be ready to be part of it!
- smoking allowed on the deck and rooftop
