the location isn't that good either

north of the river ftw
does anyone really really really give a fuck where they live/sleep?
as long as you dont get fucking stabbed up by some black fucking kid wanting your headfones every time you step foot out your front door, does it matter?
you lot really amaze me with your comments on life….and i dont mean just you and fontleroy, besty, i mean 70% of this gaff.
i dont give a shit where i live as long as being white does not make me a fucking alien.

Would love to live in bethnal green. Perfect for getting to work and good place.

However can't find anything decent/within my price bracket there….






Noble, i shared a room with 2 aussies in NZ when i was out tehre. A lot are cunts, but the lads i lived with were as sound as anything.

But Noble, aren't you regarding security as a priority because you're at a different stage of life than them? If you move to London for the first time in your early twenties, you want to be in the heart of the action - which often co-incides with a bit of roughness in your surroundings - not in some suburb with a vigilante neighborhood watch scheme.

everythings a bus away jim mucky. (and even a very long walk in the trekking boots walk when nutted)
cheapness along with safeness is the most important thing in yoot imho.

i know dude. It's do-able, just not easy. There's loads of bedsit esq. places in kensington etc. but would rather live in b.green house share, more friendly.

go tottenham/seven sisters you got overground that runs through london fields/bethnalgreen/hackney to liv street and the victoria to central you trade off having it all on your doorstep but its only 10min bus away,all depends what your budget/proritys are, I lived in dalston 2 years ago on my mates sofa the place was a dump and was still over 400pcm in a 3 share

You're going to have to houseshare if your're budget is £400pcm, its possible but I don't expect the place or area to be much cop for that price.

spend a bit more money and go to a better area/bigger place?

i stop over in Belsize park loads and its a decent area, up the hill to hampstead for organic coffee if your mum comes to visit you and down the hill to camden if you wanna have a wild one, plus its safe and the northern line gets you anywhere pretty simply. plus the camden borough are well know for being good with housing benefit (£120 per week + Council Tax Benefit) so if you lose your job you can relie on the DSS.

Thing is i work central, ox. circus, so need to be close-ish, or it's going to cost loads getting in all the time. I know it's do-able on 400ish a month but just going to take some hunting…

losing my job isnt going to happen, in reatil like, but only earning pennies so does need to be cheap/close. Hence wanting bethnal green area, as it's close and pretty decent.

yeah homer exactly. i can't afford more then 100 a week max

^Yeah its tough though, I want a nice pad to come back to and chill but then you need the cash to go out and buy all the domestics. Its easier I guess if you have a partner but at £400 its still tough, I was on £550 at Shepherds Bush and that was okish.

the areas your suggesting though arent great for getting to ox circus though really,when i lived dalston/hackney it used to take me over a hour on the bus in the morning to get to work on ox street,and its a horrible journey,if you get to shorditch granted its a easier move as you could in theory even walk it in 45 mins,but your still on the bus which in my opinion is the worst way to travel in london.as others have said go a bit further out and get on a good tube line,I live in tottenham and it takes me door to door 25mins to get to ox circus and 25mins to get liverpool street, the area isnt raving but its all in close reach if i need it

but in bethnal green there is the central line, not long on that to ox. circus. Maybe i should consider some of the bedsit/studios in west kensington, however the letting agencies out tehre want 60-100 upfront, which i can't really afford.
