    Julia was an amazing host, who made me feel right at home. The room is cozy, with plenty of storage. The house is well connected to buses and the underground/overground, and it's in a nice and safe area with lot's of cafes and supermarkets. Would recommend Julia's home for anyone visiting or staying London.

    I stayed for just over three months and had a fabulous time. The house is warm, welcoming and friendly, and the other housemates are a joy. The cats (all five of them) made it feel just like a home. Julia is hilarious and wonderfully hospitable, and was always up for a chat and a cup of tea. I couldn't recommend Julia's place enough. Thank you!

    I think I couldn't get a better Homestay experience. Julia welcomed me in a very kind way. She's a wonderful person, who is always ready to help and give good advices. I felt really comfortable staying at her house, the room is big and cosy. I would love to visit Julia again one day.

    Thank u for the unforgettable week!
