I've just bought a flat opposite the tube, I currently live on Borough Road
in Borough but Elephant tube is my closest one at the moment.
I too had reservations about Elephant at first, but I've been in the area for over 6 months now renting and when I decided to buy I chose Elephant for its location.
Like some of the threads say, it is superbly placed for transport- zone 1, 2 tube lines, walking distance to Borough and London Bridge and also, cheap.
If you look at the threads which sidhue recommends, you'll see that there is going to be a major regeneration project in Elephant.
Every area of London can be dangerous- I briefly lived in Vauxhall and was afraid every time I went out of the gate!
