I've stayed in both the Camden and Kentish Town Stay Clubs for two years in total and, (…), I can honestly say that there is no better place to stay. The stay club didn't just help me to make new friends after moving to a new city but also provided a space that made it feel like home. The installations and common areas are amazing and the staff working in reception is always willing to help you with any issues that might arise during your stay. I've only got a few more months left before I move back to Spain but I'm taking all the unforgettable and unbeatable experiences, memories and friends with me!
