I stayed at Irina's single room for three months (September to early December 2019) and it was far better that I could have expected. The house is in a quiet neighbourhood and a short walk away from plenty of shops, a big shopping mall and really close to the underground and bus stations. Both rooms are at the top of the house. The single room is a comfortable place to work from home, with a huge desk under the window. The kitchen and the bathroom are fully equipped for everyone to share. Irina really is a charming and caring person, from whom there’s always something new to learn at every conversation. For me it was the best place to stay to move around London and to comfortably work from home. I would highly recommend it! :) Excellent Manuel González 1/7/2020 10:41:00 AM
I stayed with Irina from September 2018 to May 2019 and I had a wonderful time. The house and kitchen are fully equipped with anything you might need, from toaster and utensils to sheets and towels. The house is very tidy and there was a pleasant, comfortable atmosphere in the house thanks to Irina's kindness and good spirits. We ended up sharing many breakfasts and insightful conversations, although everyone is really respectful of each other's privacy and you will be completely at home in your own room. The rooms are really bright with their large windows, and the neighborhood is super convenient: plenty of stores and transportation options within a 5 minute walk distance.

I had such a wonderful time staying at Irina's house in Harringay. The location is fantastic: just 5 minutes from Turnpike Lane station (Piccadilly Line) and so easy to get into Central London. The British Library is about 25 minutes door to door. There are shops and cafes (including the excellent Granier Bakery) and a great yoga studio (More Yoga) within a five minute walk. As for the house itself, it's beautifully decorated and kept very clean and tidy. The kitchen is very well stocked will all the cooking utensils and crockery etc. that you might need; the bedroom is absolutely huge with a lovely big desk in front of the window and a sofa and armchair. I would highly recommend the room and staying with Irina: she was a generous and very interesting host who made me feel welcome. Excellent Emma West 4/3/2018 10:21:00 AM
I stayed with Irina for about 9 months while completing an MSc degree at the LSE.

The house is beautiful, on a gorgeous, quiet tree-lined street, only 5 minutes from transportation to everywhere in London. (Which, if you need to get around easily, is a huge plus). The room was in great condition, is spacious and cozy, and the atmosphere of the house is lovely as well. Everything is always kept neat as a pin (and everyone does their share to make sure that it stays that way), and there's ample room for storage should you need it. In the kitchen you'll find all the cooking utensil and cookbooks you could ever need, which Irina is very generous about letting you borrow and use!

If you're looking to stay in a comfortable and homey place during your time in London, this is it.
