I’ve lived in king Square Studios for 3 years now and am rebooking for my masters year of study too! The staff are amazing and always help resolve any issue. Martin, Dominika and Alice are especially friendly and are extremely supportive with any issues we might have.

The building is a maze! Social areas and laundry may be very far from your room. The staff leaving after 5 pm is not helpful at all for packages or getting locked out. Other than that though it’s pretty nice, staff are sweet!

It is the worst accomdation I've ever lived and the price is so high. When i moved in the room. It is not clean, full of dust and silverfish. However, the room is very big, which is nice and i can hardly hear my neighbour. Ineffective maintenance team: I lived beside the street, i can smell weed from time to time and cold air often leaks from the windows. I reported this since September it's still not fixed. The elevator is broken for at least a quarter of all time. The range hood is useless, extremely low power and cannot be turned off, the button on it is just a decoration. I contacted the maintain team about this, but they say this is how they designed. Lastly is the receptionist, some of them are rude, low efficiency and be off the work far eariler than they should be. I highly appreciated the new receptionist Mattia, he is the best receptionist even though he just came to work for one week. He did an excellent job and is very responsible.

King Square Studios is a great place for students to stay. It is safe and you get great value for money. It is close to the city centre, bus stops as well as other things which makes life easier. I have enjoyed my stay there and would recommend to a friend.

Facilities are poorly maintained, addressing the occasionally suspended hot water. I am lucky enough to use the elevator a few times before it stopped working. Staff are really nice and polite. Facilities in room are usable after finding the maintenance team. Generally a fair accommodation, but not recommended concerning the price which raised every year.

After living here for a bit now there are problems that keep occurring like: no hot water for 48 hours, wifi being unreliable, unclean hallways and common areas, packages always disappearing when ordering, garage door left open so that anyone can come in through the smoking area. Also most if not all the flats where not a good standard of cleanliness when we first moved in. The only really good thing about this place is how central it is. Everything else seems not worth it's money.

The facilities are very old. The kitchen and bathrooms show signs of deterioration everywhere. The windows do not close tightly. The pipes are often blocked. No maintenance for weeks after reports. Parcels are often lost at reception. And emails are sent threatening residents with unreasonable charges. Including but not limited to Locked out of Room - £42 / person. not recommended for any student.

Depends on personal expectations, the staffs are all friendly, but the maintenance provided are not efficient in my opinion. For example, the elevator usually broke, which has huge impact on living experience for those who live on 4th or 5th floor. Moreover, the locations of utility room(garbage room, washing machine...) are strange. People have to walk in the building like a maze to reach the destination.

The manager of this place Daniel Reed is the nicest man you will ever meet. His helpful personality along with his positive attitude is very refreshing. I know that as a student it’s rare to come across these sort of people within student housing companies but he has been a joy and I would recommend him to any students looking for accommodation.

Quite frankly it’s a terrible choice of accommodation considering the price and quality. People are loud and inconsiderate; the maintenance rate and quality is low, and the general atmosphere is not pleasant. For the price of a twodio, you can get a studio flat in uni accommodation with a lot more perks. Plus, there have been many safety concerns: dysfunctional fire alarm, homeless people tailgating and sleeping inside, staff entering rooms without permission, etc. People smoke inside their rooms and leave trash outside which stink up whole corridors. You can definitely get away with better deals than this.

Honestly best accommodation I have ever live in! The staffs here are so welcoming and friendly and they are super duper helpful with a lot of things. More importantly, if there are any complaints on any matters, the management quickly resolve it. It’s really hard to find a student accommodation like this! Will definitely miss this place once I move out!

So far we’ve had a lovely experience living at King Square Studios. While initially we did have some issues that were usually out of the staffs and building managers control, any issues we did have however were resolved quickly and we have thus been very happy with the service at King Square Studios. Following from that the receptionists are extremely lovely and so willing to help and go above and beyond for any issues or queries we have had, so helpful in fact that we decided to rebook for another year. The location is also great being right next to Cabot circus, as well as not to far from the Harbour, so we are within great access to shops, restaurants and bars.

Due to heavy rain in Bristol, it caused a leak of water into my room, I immediately got the help i needed within minutes of the incident which shows how professional and caring the staff at kings square studios are. Also, I am very happy with how they helped me through this situation as they booked me a hotel right away including a voucher for uber eats as well. Overall I highly recommend students to choose king square studios as their new home at bristol!

I love the staff and the location is amazing. The tenants are not always social. I did engage in discussion multiple times with students on laws around smoking indoors specifically. Could help to establish a routine checkup in partnership with the security team that will keep behaviour friendly and accommodating.

Lovely accommodation, staff have been great, we extended for a second year, if in a budget it could be a little pricey if a single person. However, as a mature student at 25, the social side doesn't have the same experience but would be good for students coming from A levels/college.
