Honestly don’t know why these halls have had such a high rating, this place is truly terrible. Beds are uncomfortable, the rooms smells like damp, lighting is horrible, desks/wardrobes are over worn and dirty, bathrooms can only be described to the likes of a holiday caravan, not to mention the showers are awful. Also how they select the rooms to give to the residents are unfair. Some rooms are newly refurbished which truly are lovely! (Around 1 per flat) but then others are mediocre standard which have been refurbished within the last 10 years.. and then there are rooms which are to the standard of my back garden shed, which were probably placed there when the buildings were built, not even a lick of paint was added to any rooms (dents and marks on walls are present from previous residents). Lastly, the location isn’t all that terrible, it’s an ideal distance from the centre of Cardiff and has a safe environment surrounding. But is still 15 min walk from uni, may aswell live elsewhre

Dark and depressing, rooms have constant faults and hard to sleep at night due to constant buzzing noises. Only positive is that student wardens are nice and there's a pool table.

On the bright side, the halls are in walking distance to uni and a short bus ride to city center. The surrounding areas are nice and feel safe. The rooms are small, but equipped with all the essentials for a comfortable stay. On the downside, staff are not at all concerned with students' well-being and oblivious to their problems (for instance, they would switch on heating on winter vacation for such a short time that investing in a few extra blankets is a must. This would only get better after the reception ladies were asked numerous times by at least a few students). Not helpful at all and wouldn't blink if you have any trouble - I don't think I've experienced such an attitude elsewhere, and the halls definitely need better management who would treat students as humans.

I was in a house in first year and the house was lovely but I didn't get to have much of a social experience with house mates, this came from societies.
