Most helpful review

Really modern and new, and has a huge social area, but it does kinda mean that you socialise less with the rest of the hall as you have your own lounge with your flat mates, whereas other halls like UH, you are forced to go out and meet lots of new people because their living spaces are tiny, so the bar is always busy.

Firstly Catered and Self-Catered are completely different. Catered was so much fun, 25-28 people on a floor, 3 floors in a block, and lots of blocks so you get to know so many people, and as you see people from your course on the bus you end up knowing loads of different people, and you see them all at dinner time which even if the foods average was really sociable and a great 6pm leveller every day. The rooms are quite small and old but if you like the 60s you're going to love them, some of the best people and as there's so many people on a floor you're bound to get on well with some of them, great, great times. Pres in people's rooms were always crazy atmosphere as they get properly packed after like 6 people; overall hiatt baker was a great social scene. I get the idea some halls just stick to their flat but this is an amazing free-for all.

The catered blocks have barely any social space (get used to predrinks in your room), the location is central within Stoke Bishop which is nice but buses into town can be a hassle. Cleaning and internet is actually quite decent most of the time and socially it's ok, but beyond that I can't think of many positives. The catered food is also rather horrible and very pricy for what you're getting

This is one of the most 'allround' accommodations in Bristol. There isn't really a stereotype of the type of person who goes here - it is a very sociable environment and has a great familial atmosphere. I think the location is good - bus service has improved drastically this year (2016/17) and it is very easy to get into town, day or night. I was in a self-catered flat of 10, the large number in the flat was great as well, it is sociable and means there is a high chance you will always get on with someone. If you want an experience where you meet lots of different types of people, and it isn't too cliquey, Hiatt Baker is a good option.

food (catered): 10/10 really good and diverse room: 3/10 quite draughty, not very clean, bed not really comfortable location: 4/10 15 minutes bus drive (25 minutes by bike) away from university (and basically the sam distance for nights out), bus comes regulary but often not everyone can get on it (espacially in the morning) hall management: 8/10 they really seem to care, sometimes requests take longer due to the high number of students cleaning: 4/10 very often, but not very well, especially showers are always dirty common room: 3/10 social space: for catered there are no common rooms on the floors (big minus), but there is a bar and some pool tables in the central building social experience: 1/10 very bad since there is no common room internet / wifi: 9/10 works usually fast and reliable, very few interruptions (not really a big plus in my opinion, internet is in all halls)

Hiatt baker self catered is the best hall in Bristol. Brand new, massive social space and spacious rooms.

It costs almost 6 grand a year for a distinctly average self catered hall. The location is a good 50 minute walk away from uni. Not the best at all

2012 to 2013 was very poor to be honest. Ridiculously expensive and poorly kept. I ended up moving out half way through the year.

Despite lacking a dedicated social space on each floor there is a good bar and bar games room.
