Key Info
  • This hostel style residence is an independent and private residence located in Bethnal Green, near Shoreditch and Old Street.
  • The residence is laid out over five floors and consists of Single Rooms, Twin Rooms and Multiple Rooms – all of which you would share a fitted kitchen and toilet; meaning there is plenty of opportunities to make friend’s and socialise to make the most of your London experience.


The residence is located just off Cambridge Heath Road and is just a short ten minute walk away from Bethnal Green Underground station where you have transport links to Stratford, Liverpool Street, Oxford Street and White City – so from one end of the line to the other you will find the infamous Westfield Shopping Centre on both ends!

Walk around the corner from Bethnal Green Underground Station on to Bethnal Green Road, and you will bear witness at East London’s major transformation from a no-go neighbourhood to a now hip heartland! You’ll spot plenty of coffee shops and cocktail pubs, along with the many watering holes from ultra-trendy to your traditional east end public house. While there is the Rick Mix arts centre which showcases the best of local Asian and African culture, just yards away from Boxpark which is at the forefront of new-London cool.

Alternatively, why not stay on Cambridge Heath Road and walk the entire length which runs all the way through Bethnal Green, from Whitechapel to Regent’s Canal? The road is decorated with a cursive script of railway arches which are now home to many of London’s enterprising craft brewers and nearly touches the hem of Victoria Park. You will find pieces of history in the area from the GLL-run gym, which was a boxing venue since 1929; the Genesis Cinema which first opened in 1912, and is still going strong; and the Victoria mission at St Margaret’s House remains a firm neighbourhood fixture nearly 130 years on – thanks, in part, to its brilliant café!


The residence has 100 rooms which are spread over five floors and consist of single, twin and multiple (3-6) rooms in a cluster flat layout. The shared flats have a maximum of two rooms (except for multiple rooms) and can be single rooms or twin rooms which share a fully fitted kitchen and large bathroom. Multiple rooms come with an open plan room with either 3, 4 or 6 beds within the room to share, with access to a fully fitted kitchen and large bathroom. These can either be bunk beds or single beds.

There is plenty of occasions to socialise with the rest of the residence in their large social room which has a selection of games and Sky TV to watch the latest football game or movie. Or alternatively to get a change of scenery and inspiration outside of your room to study, but without the distraction; head over to the quiet study room which you will find within the residence too.

The residence comes with a 24/7 onsite support team who are also multilingual, and CCTV across the residence so you always feel like there is a guardian angel watching over you no matter what time of the day and night it is. So if you feel like heading to the onsite laundry room at 2-am in the morning in-between the all-nighter that you may be pulling off, rest assured that your safety, security and comfort is the number one priority of the residence.
