Most helpful review

Great location, sound environment and I love common room😍. I’d recommend this accommodation. Being living away from home, most important thing is your safety and security which is at best here. You would hear bad comments about management and security but you know thieves would never like police. It’s all about the nature of their job. I’m really enjoying living here…

Location of accommodation is very beneficial but the management are terrible, no consistent staff and one will tell you one thing while one tells you another. Had no help with my struggles of being a girl in a filthy all boys flat either. Would like to highlight K.C though, the only member of staff who has ever been of any help and is very nice and actually knows what he is talking about.

Good for the money you pay. Most the experience depends on the flatmates you get. All the receptionists and staff are really good make you feel safe.

The reception team i.e. Orlando and Hind are great, and very helpful and friendly. On the other hand I have often found the security team to be very arrogant and lazy, it seems that they often cannot be bothered to do anything about the issue you have and will passive aggressively tell you to leave and come back the next day. There have been occasions for example where my friends and I will ask a question and the security team will look at each-other and laugh. This has left my peers and I feeling ignored and insecure in the trust of the security team to do the job they are meant to do, and this is not great considering the events that have gone on in and around the accommodation since September. However on a whole the accommodations itself is great and the maintenance is amazing, the reception staff are always helpful when present!

The reception workers are lovely and very helpful, especially Orlando and Hind! However I find the security to be unfriendly and rude. Management can be difficult. I also sometimes feel unsafe in the area.

Orlando + Hind are great in the reception, very helpful, informative and kind. However some nighttime security can sometimes be quite passive aggressive.

The most nightmare experience ever. Staff/cleaners steal your stuff and have access to your rooms which makes it even easier for them to get hold of your belongings. Accommodation managers are s***, unhelpful and self centred. Very traumatising experience ever. I will not advise living here.
