I have spent a pleasant 5 months at TOYBOX. The infrastructure is excellent. There is a recreation area, a study room and a self-service snack machine in the flat. The most important thing is that the reception staff are very welcoming. You can ask them for help with any problem. TOYBOX is also in a great location, only 5 minutes from five way train station. There is a Chinese supermarket downstairs and a tesco 5 minutes away. morrison and Marks and Spencer are only a 15 minute walk away.

I've been living in toybox for 6 months now, I live in a single room but I've met a lot of good friends in tb. We usually cook together in the evening in the kitchen of our ensuite friends' house. It's easy to have lots of friends at toybox and everyone is very welcoming and friendly. It's close to school and the city centre, so you can study and have fun. The studio is very spacious. You can even live with two people. All in all, life at toybox is very happy. Highly recommended toybox!

Very nice student house, the recreation room has plenty of recreational activities like billiards and foosball. I had a triple room and the kitchen was so big that I could call my friends over to cook and eat with them at weekends. The most we've had at a party was 15 people eating together. The kitchen has four hobs and a large fridge, so you don't have to worry about running out of space. If you already know friends, the ensuite is a great choice. Also I stayed on the 1st floor and I didn't hear any noise at night even though the windows were facing the road. The stay was very good 👍

It's in a great location with two supermarkets downstairs and not far from Tesco. It takes about twenty minutes to get there by bus and train. Internal facilities are also very perfect, there are separate express cabinets and mailboxes. The studio rooms are also very nice with lots of light facing the road and all rooms have automatic ventilation system.

The ToyBox is a flat that I really liked, especially its Premium Studio with all the amenities. At first my impression was that the decor was very upmarket and clean, and all the furniture was relatively new. The reception was lit up every night and there was a security guard on duty throughout the night, which gave me a sense of home and security. The common areas are clean and tidy and often have different decorations, especially during the festive season, making it feel very festive. There are also free interactive English classes every week to help with socialising and submitting English skills.The receptionist was very gentle and helpful with all my questions and the cleaners, security and maintenance staff I met here were all very polite and professional and any problems were resolved quickly and patiently.

Definately a great place for student living. Tesco, Morrison,pharmacy,a new opening Chinese supermarket,Second-hand shop are all within a few minutes walking distance.Also at most 10mins walk you can reach the city center and 3 mins train to the university. In addition,the facilities are well-equipped, extremely fast WiFi and convenience for parcel collection. Students live here are all very friendly and would always provide a helping hand if possible.The reception is very nice and help us asap,just like our sister.It’s really a wonderful experience to live here!

After exploring several different student housing options, I'd say Toybox is the best. All the staffs are so kind, and especially Sandy and John, who are always willing to assist when required. The students who live here are all very friendly and would always provide a helping hand if needed. It's easy to get around, whether it's to school or the city centre. Tesco, Morrison's, and the pharmacy are all within easy walking distance. In addition, the window provides a pleasant and unobstructed view, which always brightens my mood when I begin a new day.

Toybox is honestly the best student accommodation in Birmingham. You’d be lucky to find accommodation here so BOOK EARLY and win all those freebies. And the pictures don’t even do much justice to the beauty of Toybox’s rooms, lounge, study room, gym, play area, etc. You just need to see it for yourself. It’s always squeaky clean and facilities are properly checked and maintained at all times. John the facility manager, Sandy the client service lady and the entire team are the coolest people you could ever live with. Thanks also to the manager for all gifts...we love them! The staff are always ready to help with a smile. Thank you! And oh, did I tell you we live in the most beautiful building in the city center? The 14th floor feels like a penthouse suite with an amazing city view..lol.. As a Uni of Birmingham student, Toybox was an excellent choice for me because it’s safe, serene and homely. Stop searching, you found the one! Precious B.

The last senior recommended toybox, I booked one decisively. First of all, the location is very convenient, five minutes' walk to the city center. Secondly, the apartment facilities are complete, there is a gym, coffee shop, laundry, printers and so on, the daily needs can be met. Finally, the most important thing is that the accommodation is quite good, each room is equipped with infrastructure, as well as a vacuum cleaner. Living in tb will also give gifts to households on New year's Day, and problems can be properly resolved on the same day. I am very satisfied with this!

It’s worthy to order this nice apartment. The stuff and reception are kind to help us with everything and react to our problems fast. There are also sufficient equipments in the room and public activity space such as gym and laundry room. It is convenient for us to travel everywhere and we could get what we need in the supermarket nearby(5-10 minutes' walk). It is safe here and comfortable with everyone.

Let's start with the quality of the apartment. It is just topnotch. The modern built is spacious and integrated pretty well. Each room has its own wifi router, which is super fast. It is very peaceful. I really like the gym on the ground floor, as I workout often. The security is spot on as no one can access building, elevators and other facilities without key card. The view from my room is beautiful. Tesco is just a minute away.Even during such critical circumstances (covid), they have gone above and beyond to make sure everything is safe. Overall, I am a 100 percent satisfied with the building and the apartment.

I have been really happy with the welcome I have received at the Toybox, having chosen the property as a safe and comfortable home for an intense year of study. The team are consistently friendly and always up for a chat! I have been particularly impressed with the speed at which any maintenance issues are processed and dealt with - any minor problems I have had with my room have been dealt with swiftly within 2 hours of reporting. The facilities are fantastic, I really value the use of the gym and study area as a break from my room. I have also found the team very responsive to any suggestions I have for improvement. If you are looking to invest in accommodation conducive to facilitating a productive and hassle-free year, I would highly recommend!

I am very satisfied to live at this brand new luxury hotel style student accommodation. The location is good, 2 minutes to the train station and several supermarkets around here. The reception staffs are very nice and friendly to students, work efficiently as well. I strongly recommend this accommodation.

Covid-19: Yes, they provided face masks and hand sanitiser. Housekeeper cleans and disinfects communal area several time a day. They still provide excellent service during this challenge time and keep us updated about the information.
