Quiet, clean, location

Verified Resident

Great for dogs, canal is great, green space is great, pub very close, Clapton station is good but only like 3 out of 5 car or cycle is easier. Good neighbours not got any cons, love the whole place really don’t see any wrongs here.

Nice area, transport could be improved

Verified Resident

The flat sizes are adequate for residents, two and 3 bedroom plans. New build. The main issue is lack of parking, there is a carpark downstairs however you have to pay for it. There is a management company who deal with repairs etc.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

The area has a canal riverside, lots of open spaces. Marshes etc. Transport links can be difficult.

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

We were pretty informed before, and also did our research

Good

Verified Resident

My overall impression is that the rooms are tiny and need to be bigger. The outside shower is really aesthetic. The room in general is dark because of the position of the room. The crime is a new issue to me due to theft.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I dislike about this area that it has a lot of youth around stealing objects from the garage

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I knew before moving in here that there no corner shops around close

Overall good

Verified Resident

There isn’t much I dislike about this area. My overall impression is very positive although room sixes are quite small, especially the bedrooms, the quality of the building is really good overall even though somewhat basic

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like about this area that it has a lot of greenery space and Hackney marshes nearby. Not too far from good go out places

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

I wish I knew before moving in here that a big supermarket is far away and can be a long travel.

Very good

Verified Resident

I love it that it is pedestrianised. I dislike however about this area that the parks are to an extent dirty and also not the safest. The rooms that I have are small although good for for the price we pay in London.

Please tell us what you like and dislike about this area:

I like about this area that it is near to a lot of restaurants and bars as well as close to river

Please share one thing (or more) which you wish you had known before you moved in:

There is nothing that I wish I knew before moving in here.

Quiet, safe

Verified Resident

Transport is good but I use cycle anyway so it’s good if you need to use it, I wouldn’t say it’s dangerous but we lie right next to a park so you expect something to happen anyway, the shops aren’t far away, the coop is up the road but theres nowhere to do clothes shopping without having to travel or order online, the canal is nice
