    Peckham is Peckham, and has a much better vibe now than a few years ago. Had been concerned about big city noise, given the location - but neither of us had our sleep disturbed despite being there over Fri & Sat night.

    Kind and helpful hostess. Clean and neat. Would love to stay there again. It might not be central but the neighbourhood is a cool hipster vibe with several neat cafés like Dovedales and Ron's. Busses and trains are only a couple of minutes away.
