    Hi people

    I'm in my final year of engineering up in manchester, coming down to Laaandan for a masters in aero eng next year. Want to live in the middle of town but don’t know London that well. A mate has told me the Old Street area is alright. Course will be pretty full on so need to live in zone 1.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I like the look of this place

    http://uk.urbanest.com/uk/london/accommodation/hoxton.aspx


    Seems pretty decent and the prices aren't too bad - around 200 pound a week - looks reasonable compared to the others, I know its a bit cheaper further out of town but I wanna be in the middle where it's at.

    Anyone know of this place or anything else in that area that's as good?

    Cheers

    Once again I find myself browsing The Student Room with nothing better to do... and stumbled across this post...

    I would definitely recommend urban nest- I am still amazed at how nice it was when I visited, and my friend that stayed there absolutely loved it. Just speaking from experience, but hopefully it will help you make a decision!

    PS. The rooftop parties in the common room are ace...!
