Favell House is a great place to live- nice rooms and great location, However, it is not exactly cheap and is not the prettiest on the outside. I have really enjoy living at Favell!

The rooms themselves were fantastic, the chairs were cheap but other than that no issues whatsoever. The kitchen is strange for having shelves instead of cupboards, but this works well, assuming you trust the people you live with. There was also a large (40") wall mounted TV in there, ideal for groups. Unfortunately there isn't a window in the kitchen, which had a tendency to get somewhat hot (30ish°) when people were cooking or electronics were used for prolonged periods of time. The staff are friendly and sociable, yet can be somewhat lazy at times, and cleaning isn't their strongest suit, but are definitely approachable with any issues. I found that due to the scale of the flat (12 people) I didn't socialise outside of the building as much as I would have liked, but this is only due to how social spending time in the kitchen turned out to be, as at almost any time there were at least 2 - 6 other people in there. The internet was usable, but too slow for gaming.

Favell, Waverley and Rackhay are a trio complex otherwise known as riverside and they are the most underrated student accommodation. Don't be disheartened if you get your third choice as it was probably for the best. The location is prime, right next to the river for evening chills. Situated close to pretty much everything; pubs, clubs, bars and shopping. The interaction between the three makes it a very social hub which some other accommodations haven't experienced, another social hub such as stoke bishop is a lot different Riverside. Here they don't often come down this far to Bristol apart from for a special occasion as the price of a taxi back is absurd otherwise and walking is just a straight no. Stoke Bishop is loved by the druggies as they can stay in there rooms and have fun as no one there can afford to go out out often, and it's hated by normal people who are stuck in their accommodation with no fun activities nearby. Sharing a toilet is worth all the cons. KEBAB U LIKE 4EVA.

The heaters are terrible. Before arriving I wasn't really sure about it because it was a bit above what I could afford but now that I'm here I really love it and have had to juggle so much money

Location is definitely the best thing about it, bedrooms and kitchen/living area are nice, bathrooms are not so great. No common room in Favell House but there is one across the road although I've only used it once

Big rooms, lots of storage, big beds, desk. Good location, near city centre and by the river. Lovely view of the river, but other sides of the block have a view of a wall or one of the other riverside accommodations. The kitchen is big, but when we arrived one of the fridges didn't work, and there were other little problems too. There is a bar on the other side of the road, next to the river, and a restaurant below. Earplugs are useful to get to sleep, though the windows are better at blocking out sound than expected. Cleanliness is an issue. The shower-heads and taps are covered in limescale, the shower had hair in it before it was even used by any of us, the sink, shower and bathroom shelves were covered in dust. Room had marks on desk and windowsill that cleaned off easily, and surfaces were dusty and not pleasant. They claimed the rooms were deep cleaned. Bathrooms the same once cleaners had been two weeks later. Same price as some ensuite rooms, expensive washing machines.

Favell House is fairly modern, the kitchen is cleaned well every other week and the bedrooms are a decent size with the luxury of a double bed. However, it can be very noisy with drunk people walking home in the early hours, the restaurant underneath putting out its rubbish (mainly bottles) at midnight and the incredibly thin walls. This isn't a joke - the walls sometimes feel like they're made of paper. Maintenence is good, but can take forever to arrive. The common room feels a bit sterile, but the activities put on there are fun. It's in a really convenient location, but at the bottom of the hill uni is located on. Really, Favell is just a load of pros and cons that seem to balance each other out to make alright halls that won't make your uni experience any worse, but probably won't be what you remember your first year for.
