Naturally, I was a bit nervous when I was heading out to London for the summer; the excitement of a new city certainly overcame that fear, though. One of the things I was anxious about was where I was going to be living for the next 2 months. I had heard other people’s versions of where the best and worst places to live were, and obviously, I was hoping for one of the “best” places. When I was assigned to live in Nido’s student accommodation, I truly didn’t know what to expect, until I visited their website. I have to say, I was pretty blown away, and I was even more amazed when I saw it in person for myself.
I immediately felt at home. Not only is there a cafe on two floors, but there is also a massive game room with pool and football tables. My roommate and I had packed an obscene amount of clothes, but to our surprise, we fit everything into our room. There are a ton of pubs and restaurants around Nido, so when you want to stay local for the night, you’re in luck (especially when you may need to crawl home after a night of partying). It really feels more like an apartment than a dorm, which I know I enjoy.
No matter where you’re staying in London, you’re going to have an amazing time. I know my London experience would certainly not have been the same if I wasn’t in Nido. So many of my neighbours at Nido are now my friends for life, and I’ve made amazing memories with them. I remember the first night I was at Nido, my neighbour and I watched the fireworks from the Queen’s Jubilee celebration from our room, and that is something I will never forget. So check it out, you may be surprised about how awesome student living can be in a foreign country. Cheers!
