Located in the heart of Bethnal Green, The Hive London is modern student accommodation in East London. The area is home to young professionals and a lot of immigrants, making it a hub of mixed culture. The Queen Mary University of London
, Newcastle University London, Coventry University London Campus, and London Metropolitan University are less than 20 minutes away from the tube.
Public transport is not an issue for students who live here. You can take a 5 minutes’ walk and take a tube from the Bethnal Green Underground (Central Line). The London City Airport is just 20 minutes’ drive away as well.
The studios of The Hive London are nothing less than lavish. Each studio has a sofa, a spacious bed, ensuite bathroom, fully fitted kitchen, fridge, TV, and plenty of storage cabinets. The desk space (and your whole house), is Wi-Fi connected so you can complete your assignments anywhere. The common room has a large TV where you and your friends can enjoy the big game nights. They also have a gym with the latest cardio equipment & weights. For your dirty pile of clothes, there is laundry and ironing facility as well.
Roll out of your bed to the chirpy atmosphere of the Bethnal Street. Grab a cup of coffee from the kitchen as you think about your day ahead. If you are still feeling lazy, make your way to the gym and shed your laziness by doing some active cardio. Then take a long shower in your ensuite bathroom. You can shamelessly do some bathroom singing as no one will judge you. On weekends, make your way to Shoreditch, which is only 12 minutes’ drive away. Visit the Brick Lane and do some vintage shopping. You can find a lot of unique pieces of clothing, charms, and homeware there. You can also roam around and check out some world famous street art near the hive London accommodation. The trip would definitely make you Instagram famous! If you do not want to go to Shoreditch, you can visit the Rich Mix arts centre in Bethnal Street. It showcases some of the best of local Asian and African culture. For drinks, try The Star of Bethnal, Cocktail Trading Company, and Satan's Whiskers. All these bars are less than 10 minutes’ away from the property.
