    The best english family ever!
    It was my first time abroad and as a guest in a family. Christalla and Andy make me fell like I was at home since the first day. I had a very nice trip in Croydon, I meet very nice people, and can recommend this host at 100%.
    No problems during my stay, the house was really nice and full of very nice people! :)
    The room looks quite small on the picture but is actually much bigger with lot of space.
    The first tram/bus stop are 8-10 min walk.
    If I had chance to come back in Croydon, I will be back in this house, for sure!
    Great moments and lots of goods memories!
    Thank you for everything!

    Fantastic host! Extremely spacious room. Wonderful house full of wonderful people. I had no issues at all during my stay. Will certainly be staying again if I'm ever in London! Great transport links into London from station too.

You then pay your host on arrival or as stated by your host on their profile and agreed by you on booking. Please be cautious if a host requests advance payment if its not included on their profile.
