“Cheap and VERY cheerful!”
Reviewed 15 January 2012

This is a stunningly cheap way to stay in London - it's 2 minutes walk from a tube station, 2 minutes from shops and cheap local restaurants. Rooms are... cheap! They're very cheaply fitted out, but clean and modern, have Sky TV and a hot drinks tray, ironing board and iron, showergel. Not an impressive place to take a new partner, sure but ideal for a business stay or just sightseeing. The 'all day breakfast' - food you can cook yourself, free in a well-equipped little kitchen - is a fantastic idea and adds to the amazing value. Friendly people, too, and I'd certainly use this place again. Its a 25 minute tube ride into Central London, but a straightforward one-train journey and the fare is about £4. Don't be put off by the lack of hotel signage and the slightly scruffy exterior - this place is a good find, as long as you're not seeking to impress. It's modern, clean and... did I mention CHEAP??!

Having found the place (it looks like a group of houses from outside,with no visible signage)we pushed the door bell and a chap appeared from a couple houses down the road.
Im a Maori boy and as such,love my tucker!Couldnt believe it when the friendly chap showed us round the place(having arrived with my girlfriend at night tired and hungry)informing us "help yourself to the food,day or night".The communal fridge(there is also another private fridge to place all your purchased food too) was well stocked with Bacon,eggs,sliced ham,sausages,white and brown bread,marg spread,mayo,sauce ,apple/orange/nectar juices,jams,cereals etc-and ALL of it as part of the price(fully understood why they insist on payment upfront).They also provided an easy to use kitchen with all the cooking utensils including pots,frying pans,toaster etc.The communal kitchen also had a front loader washing machine(8kg) and was situated next to the dryer,they even supplied the wash powder!Our room was clean,quiet and warm with clean toilet/shower area and Sky tv including movies and my much loved sport channels.With wireless internet I was stoked!The place was no more than a 10 min stroll from Tooting Broadway(NOT Bec!) tube station despite dragging my oversized suitcase.Close to shops (including the Tesco up the road and to the left) and some superb Indian restaurants (despite not looking like much from appearances).The food was really good without the trumped up prices of central London (which often came with annoying 4-5 quid service fees).Probably a 25 min ride to central London via tube (may need to swap tubes at Kennington,we usually asked locals on the tube).All in all amazing value for money,and will definately be returning to this Flexistay as the others dont throw in food as I understood it.We stayed from Jan 2-5th for less than 60 quid a night,fantastic!
The only disappointing part of my stay was on the tube system,where Londoners DO NOT often appear to give up their seats for vulnerable types,such as pregnant women or the elderly with walking sticks/frames etc.

Langers.

Room Tip: If you have heavy luggage and only a small group(1-2),would recommend choosing a ground floor room.

I arrived at a normal looking house and a chap appeared from next door when I pressed the bell. He took me inside and wanted full payment up front. I really wasn't sure at this stage!! But the room was great. Decent size, comfy bed, ensuite and clean. Not to mention free wi-fi. Fully stocked kitchen for breakfast, and with a small Tesco just round the corner, you can cook yourself an easy evening meal. Tube station only a 10 minute walk away, but a 25 minute ride into central London on the Northern Line. Would I stay again? I have already booked!

When you walk down the road to arrive at the hotel, you are faced with a normal house with entry phone - after confirming my reservation a chap appeared and showed me to a similar house a few doors down. I really wasn't sure what to expect.

I was on the first floor at the back and the room was huge. Large lounge/dining area with separate bedroom and en-suite. Lots of facilities to cook and a large fridge/freezer.

Downstairs, the communal room for breakfast was an unusual make your own from a very well stocked selection. Absolutely ideal arrangement (and will washing facilities too).

Room smelled slightly musty and that smell persisted (may just have been through lack of use).

Value for money was superb and with supermarkets just round the corner, easily able to stay in London on a budget. With towels changed daily too, it really is an excellent base.

Longish tube journey (25 minutes) into London via the packed Northern line. Most trains go on the Bank half of the Northern Line so take the first train and change at Kennington.

Room Tip: I stayed at the back but Franciscan Road is quiet road anyway so all rooms should be quiet.

OK, London accommodation and pricing is the stuff nightmares are made of. But this place was surprisingly good! Yes it's simple, but it is EXACTLY what is advertises. A good, clean (miraculous in the capital), en suite room with food supplies in a communal kitchen whenever you want, and at the extremely reasonable (particularly by UK standards) £60 per night it was a real find.

If ever I have cause to be in Tooting again, I wouldn't hesitate. This place just did what it said on the tin, which is about as rare as unpolluted air in London.
