Great location, great building and design of the rooms but poor standard of staff and cleaning within the building. Far too much money for what you get.

We didn’t have cleaners come round. It was expensive as hell but great quality and condition. Great location.

With a recently opened common room, this accommodation is something special! Especially if only looking for something personal (loads of different types of studio flats available!!)

The railyard is probably the most expensive accommodation in Cambridge, however it it probably the best accommodation in the city. The kitchens are a great size (and the long table in the middle is great for beer pong). The location is ideal as it is right next to the train station, making it convenient for a trip home, or to London.

Very expensive, not particularly worth the money. The internet was forever down and extremely slow!

Very good accommodation if you want to socialise. Lots of students. 10/15 minute walk to Anglia Ruskin university. Less than 2 minute walk to cooperative food. 5 minute walk to the cinema/gym/restaurants/tesco express and sainsburys local.

The Railyard is a great place to live, the rooms are a decent size, and the ensuite is always a plus. The kitchen/ communal area is pretty good as well, with lots of space and tables/ cupboards/ shelving, as well as a smart TV and sofa set. However, the accommodation is just a littttle bit expensive at £6,500 , I certainly don't think the standard of our accommodation correlates with the price we're paying.. It took maintenance 6 weeks to fix a light in our flat. But hey ho, it's certainly a cool place to live during uni with a very diverse community of people, all of them are awesome. But yeah, hell, If you have the money, go to the Railyard. It's cool.

Pretty expensive but you do get what you pay for , perfect location for me , 1/2 way between uni and addenbrookes where I do my placements. Management are there if you need them but don't intrude, cleaning is done in the staircases but would be nice if it included the kitchens as certain people I live with have no idea how to use a mop -.-

Rooms are decent sized, the refurbished rooms are nicer but not worth the extra money. The den is great with fantastic facilities but there's no social life here.

Really expensive, I was in a studio and no one was social at all. No one particularly uses the common rooms, especially the ones in Stephenson which are basically just a laundry waiting room. It's really messily finished, there was plaster dust everywhere when I moved in. There were already scratches and marks on the wall even though they were freshly built. My friend in a flat above me has four holes in her wall which she had told reception about multiple times and were never fixed. There's a constant wiff of weed in the air. The windows barely open so the room can get really stuffy, this is an issue when cooking as the whole studio then stinks of the food you cooked. The wardrobe is a decent size and the under bed storage is really useful. There is quite a lot of storage space in these. I guess the best bit is that you're opposite CB1 accommodation which is party central! So not ideal if you'd like it to be quiet!
