Most helpful review

In my time at the Hawthorns, the people in my kitchen were horrendously antisocial to the point where they continued to steal my cookware and cutlery despite me notifying them about my sensitive allergies. Having reported this the staff did next to nothing about it which forced me to purchase a lock and chain to lock my cupboard. On top of this the halls always smell, are inadequately cleaned, continuously have wifi problems and just recently there has been a wasp infestation in my room. The location only partially makes up for the obviously under-planned or simply poorly designed building due to the fact its interior resembles a labyrinth. Residents are forced to trek up and down countless flights of stairs and through difficult-to-navigate corridors. The Clifton Wing is the most puzzling as it connects to the main building via what would appear to be a make-shift bridge with absolutely no easy or short way of exiting the building. Horrifying experience.

Student Review: 2 /5

This hall is very unconventional. There’s no traditional flats, it’s more a corridor with rooms and kitchens off, more like a dormitory. In COVID, it has made it more social, but it’s quite dead and there’s no other accommodation within a 10 min walk nearby. This accommodation always smells, and is hardly ever cleaned well. Even when they “clean” the kitchen, it’s still so dirty. The kitchen is so backward, everything is covered in thick coating of limescale. The WiFi is terrible, I have to switch on 4G to actually use Instagram. The student support take ages to get things fixed, we were without ovens for at least a week, they didn’t fix a hole in the ceiling for about a month and mushrooms grew in that kitchen and the whole building is basically falling apart. The staff locked our student lounge and our printer access too. One positive is the location to uni campus, it’s pretty much a 15 min walk to city centre, clifton and a 30 min walk to the downs.
