Most helpful review

I had the most incredible stay at my current accommodation in Aberdeen. It's located near the city center, which made it super convenient for exploring the area and enjoying all the amazing hangout spots. The place itself is perfect - cozy, comfortable, and had everything I needed for a great lifestyle. I loved how close it was to all the amenities I needed. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Highly recommended! 🌟✨

I recently moved into the old fire station accommodation in September, from the very moment I arrived the staff were very welcoming and very helpful. Whenever there may be a problem staff are always there for you and equipment is fixed quickly. I love it here and can’t wait to spend the rest of the year here!

Despite the friendly staff, run-down building with obsolete equipment. Other major complaints included heating being cut off despite the cold (I ended up having to wear sweaters/jackets indoors during the day), and the lack of cleanliness. For the high price, it's surprising to see such irregular cleaning services. Overall, a very underwhelming experience and most tenants slowly left for better places elsewhere.

The place is perfect if you are looking for a reasonable price, the rooms are quite good. I was living in the -1 rooms which are the biggest and have a huge kitchen but it came with a huge problem. The wifi is 2.4Gz meaning it is a very slow wifi, most of the time I have to avoid whatsap video calls and films in the phone because it just doesn’t handle it, I fixed the problem with the computer by buying a Ethernet cable, but nothing can be done on the phones.

I lived here for 2 years, it's really convenient to not have to pay separate utility bills and the booking process is incredibly accessible and smooth for the most part. My experience was much better once I moved in with my friends in my second year, as living with strangers is hard sometimes. Great location, easy to get to my uni campus and town, pretty much everything is in walking distance. Nice outdoor spaces and benches. It is annoying that staff can come in and out of flats as they please, and the heavy fire doors are really loud. The property also changed management right at the beginning of my second year and we were given next to no notice and very little information about this, and there were some issues as a result of the change over. There are also frequent issues with the showers, such as drainage problems and poor water pressure. Usually it's not too difficult to get things fixed but it can be frustrating when these issues recur multiple times.

It takes pretty long time for the property (e.g. lift) to get repaired, but it's a good place to live in during the uni years in overall - could tell as I've been living in this accomodation for 3 years.

A lot of things broke like our hob was broke before we moved in. Both the fridge and oven light had to be replaced too but the management came and fixed it quickly so that was good. £10 for a new keycard is a bit expensive I think though because you can’t help if you loose it maybe after the second or third charge but not straight away

A Wonderful Stay at Everystudent, Old Fire Station Aberdeen I can confidently say that my time at Everystudent, Old Fire Station in Aberdeen was nothing short of fantastic. From the warm welcome to the well-maintained facilities and the supportive staff, every aspect of my stay was delightful. If you are a student looking for affordable, comfortable, and well-managed accommodation, Everystudent is undoubtedly an excellent choice. I highly recommend it to anyone seeking a home away from home during their educational journey.

Overall, The Old Fire Station is ok student accommodation in my opinion. However, customer service is extremely poor; I was promised a LifeStyle voucher by October 2022 and I am still yet to receive this as of June 2023, staff are not helpful at resolving this issue.

The old fire station is a good place to live in general - excellent location, lovely receptionists, ok rooms, but the building is quite old and you can definitely tell. Also the maintenance team is not the fastest, best nor most considerate of people living in the flats. Also the cleanliness is not the best. Depending on what you value most it is worth the money, but if you want modern and problem-free living (no issues with the building or flat etc) I probably would not choose the Old fire station.

This place is okay but not value for money in terms of bills. The heater does not always turn on so my room would be left freezing cold many times and the staff could not do anything about it. So as a result I would often fall sick. The hot water also randomly turns off after a while in the shower. I would never live here again

The accomodation is nice, however not having double bed rooms could be quite annoying. The reception’s staff is very friendly. The flats are okay but just need to be lucky enough to get nice and clean flatmates. The location of the accomodation is perfect for a student going to the uni of Aberdeen. We have lots of facilities near by, such as Morrisons, halal shop, African shop etc.. for groceries; hairdresser salon for both ladies & gents. And the bus stops are Litterally 2 mins walk. Such a nice accomodation honestly.

I have spent two years at the old fire station, when it used to be owned by unite student. I feel like unite did a better job at affordability where every student have upped the price of rooms and now charge £10 for a key card etc. Overall, they provide a safe space for students in a good location.

Most of my time here was plagued by a very poor WiFi connection - however it is now fixed and works fairly well. Room had a few faults during my stay however the staff were very helpful in resolving these issues quickly so it was never much of a bother. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly and always offer their best efforts and have made staying here feel more homely. The rooms are spacious and unbeaten in quality of desk and storage amenities. The bathroom is difficult to maintain but it all comes at a reasonable cost.

Stayed here for 2 years now and couldn’t recommend the place enough. I feel very safe with the security team and the staff. Hazel is great as once we were locked out and she was a massive help in getting this issue resolved and really put me at ease with the situation.

The Old Fire Station is such value for money compared to uni owned student accommodation. It's a quiet place to live. The staff are so friendly and Angie and Gary are legends and so friendly. TOFS is central and literally only a 10-15minute walk to the city centre, perfect if you enjoy the student night life.

I've stayed at the Old Fire Station for 3 years now. Everyone at the site is very friendly and helpful, especially Angie! The location is great. Just a short walk from city centre, AU and Morrisons across the road. There are also regular bus services into town and RGU from outside the front door.

This place has been everything that I expected from the website. The staff are wonderful and very friendly. You get people here from different universities and different ages which means that the vibe is quite different to the more party focused university owned student housing.

Have stayed at the Old Fire Station for three years in a row and I couldn't have hoped for a better accomodation. I really wanted an ensuite room and the OFS offers those for a really affordable price! Staff is super nice and helpful (shoutout to Angie and Gary) and there's regularly events held in the common room for everyone to socialize. Overall would 100% recommend!

I have stayed at The Old fire Station for over 3 years. The location of the property is perfect for jumping on the bus to RGU, there is a bus stop just outside the property. There is a supermarket right next door to the property too - Morrisons. The site is in the city centre and the main shopping centres are 5 minutes away. The property is great, there is a very large common room with a free pool table / football table. There is a an area where you can watch tv and a seperate study area with printers onsite. The staff are very friendly, Angie the housekeeper ensures the property is sparkling, great to chat with too. We recently had a new guy start at reception gary, hes so helpful and very friendly.
