So maybe you’re like me, and are dreaming about living in a quaint little flat once you arrive in London; you know, like in the movies. In my head, I was imagining a lovely little apartment, where I could admire Big Ben and The Eye from my window. Well I can keep dreaming, because that’s not exactly what happened for me in London. But I did happen to get even luckier, thanks to Nido.
If you find yourself living in Nido, prepare yourself for an amazing semester.
After a late night, there’s nothing nicer than being able to go downstairs to the Cafe and ordering a meal. And if you’re getting bored waiting for some of us (aka me) to get ready for a night out, there’s not one, but two places you can play pool, foosball and ping-pong. And once everyone was finally ready to go out, we were only a few minutes walk away from a bus stop and King’s Cross/St. Pancras Station. Believe me, this is a huge convenience.
We loved our view; you can’t tell here but you could just make out The Eye from our room
Another nice thing about living so close to St. Pancras was that it made traveling abroad extremely easy. St. Pancras is an international station, meaning you can travel to other European countries with ease; and we know you’re going to want to explore Europe during your time abroad. All I had to do was walk down the street when I was going to Paris for the day. My friends and I were even able to catch a train from St. Pancras to Gatwick Airport when we were visiting Amsterdam for a weekend. And after a weekend of traveling, it’s nice being able to just walk up the street and be home.
My friends lived on my floor and were only a knock away. Although I lived in a two person room, it really felt like there was four of us, because we were constantly in each others rooms. And when we felt like bugging the boys and causing trouble, they were only one floor away.
Living in Nido was an awesome experience, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. So if you find yourself living there, get ready for an amazing time 🙂
