Most helpful review

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.
