Lovely place to stay! Both Maggie and Sam have made me feel very welcome coming here, so friendly and kind. The rooms are lovely and spacious, the value for money is the best I could find around. For a studio room with small kitchen and en-suite you won’t beat the price. I love it here, it’s my home away from home. The staff and management really try to go above and beyond! I’m staying here another year and I’ve even recommended my friend move in. Thank you b16 studios for making me feel comfortable and confident in my new home.

Terrible accomodation. The elevator has not been working for months now. Gym equipment broken for about 4 months. The management don’t seem to care or listen to what the students want.

I don't wish to anyone to experience what this place can offer. From lies and excuses, to room issues that will never get looked in to. No one will even look interested in your problems till you don't leave a bad review. Than they will make a list with all the problems again and ask you what they can give you so you take back the bad review. For how much they charged and what they offer.. for the sake of God, do not choose this place. If you don't believe it. Come live here 1 month.

I have lived here for about 10 months. The place was good, well managed by Maggie and Helen till Helen left in mid-October, and everything fell apart. The new management doesn’t seem to know how to handle issues. The lift has been broken for over 2 weeks, with no date in sight for fixing. Having to go up 5 floors each time you have need to be on the ground floor? 🥺 An apartment this big has got just one functional washing machine! The hot water keeps going on and off, last time it was off, it lasted some 10 days to be fixed. The only three mill in the gym has been broken for months now, no talks of fixing it. The only thing they have got going for them is the internet. For an Accomodation this pricey, it’s not worth it.

Very homely accomadation where you can be independent. High security meaning you feel safe as there are multiple secured doors before getting to your room. Cluster kitchens are very spacious and there is a lot of storage for your utensils.

I’ve been here for two years and I’ll say it’s been a wonderful experience. Meeting new people and friendly staff. Maggie is always there to put a smile on your face in the morning and after a stressful day. The staffs at B16 are always there to chat and make you feel comfortable. Nice communal spaces and a gym to release tension.

Great place to stay for my final year, staff are very friendly, especially Maggie! Which I often find myself spending extended periods of time in the reception just having chats with, really goes out of her way to make us feel comfortable and welcomed!

Very comfortable. Maggie is very welcoming, super friendly, helpful with whatever I need AND she keeps the place spotless. The rest of the team are lovely too. A home away from home. It's wonderfully close to the city centre and we even have a group chat for the whole building so we have a great community amongst the students living here.

If there’s one thing that’s certain, it’s that B16studios is the best accommodation I have stayed at. Everyone is very friendly there and the receptionists are absolute legends 🤩. My only regret is that I didnt stay longer.

All I can say is WOW. Lived her for the year and it was unbelievable! Helen and Maggie are absolute stars, made me feel so welcome. Room was a very good size, clean as a whistle when I arrived. Wifi was stupendous, never had any trouble. Location was excellent with my campus a 5 minute walk away, along with a Morrisons down the road. If you’re thinking of going anywhere else, stop looking because you’ve found the best place. Gym was brilliant and open 24/7, The cinema room was great for movies and football and the games room was also fantastic. My only regret is that I didn’t stay longer.

All single kindness throws out roots in all directions, and the roots spring up and makes new trees and thank you for growing my tree and let it shine. The staff members were very kind, understanding, and very clean. I had an amazing time at B16 and had a great time speaking with the staff members. They were there for me when I was going throw the worst time of my life. They are very supportive and understanding, and very motivating. Thank you for being my guidance angel and thank you for being who you are. You guys are doing amazing and keep it up. ❤️❤️

I had such a fun time living here, the management, Helen and Maggie, do an amazing job at everything. I felt safe throughout my stay, and if there were any problems regarding noise from other students after 12pm, it would be resolved promptly. The facilities are kept clean and the gym and cinema were my favourite. Me and my friends would watch Netflix at the cinema together most of the Mondays, and I would work out anytime I wanted but you have to book in advance on a sheet of paper stuck on the door so the allocated time was just for you!! I had a studio plus, but the studios are really comfortable, cosy and modern with a wardrobe, toilet, shower, a kitchen, fridge, microwave, desk, drawers and a bed, all the essentials. Overall my experience was great, Maggie and Helen, were always there whenever I needed someone to talk to regarding mental health, or whenever I was home sick. I was sceptical at first when I was doing my research but this accommodation is literally the best!! :)
