seven sisters or finsbury park is straight to oxford circus on the victoria line and probably takes same amount of time

Forrest Hill

12 minutes into London Bridge and £400 will get you a nice place maybe even your own studio flat.

I'd rather be in a not so nice place but zone2 than out that far and living in a pad. AS i'll be central 6/7 days a week, i really want to be zone2. Flatshare/house share isn't a big deal to me, living in the same room as 2 aussie dudes for several months out in NZ, so a house share will be a breath of fresh air!

Wanstead? Central Line and cheap
White City? Central Line, central and cheap and nasty.

Bethnal Green / Dalston is prob your best bet.

Why not get a bike and add what you save on travel to your monthly rent budget?

bethnal green/mile end area ftw if your going east, 100 pounds a week can get you a decent double room

If you really want a decent commute then this ^^

Worked in Oxford street for a while when I was at home in finsbury park and the journey is easy, less than 15 mins on the tube on a good day

Just a boring as fuck area(finsbry) and i'll spend all my time going to other places like, otherwise i would consider something there… Not too worried about commute, just want to be zone2 with good bus links, which east has, as 40min bus isnt bother to me as i'll just ipod up and chill out.

Oasisunit, you know of any then? As i'm having trouble findin something on gumtree/spareroom.

I found my place on gumtree before, might want to try through an agency or something
If your going zone 2 you can try hammersmith as well, 100 pounds a week as well… hot polish/eastern european sluts everywhere and takes you about 35 minutes to get to oxford st

Seems decent place/rent, however all new people in the house i guess, so could end up with a bunch of weirdos…
