Featured review

The best place about this place was it's location, especially if you're a student studying Mathematics, Physics or Engineering. You can practically roll out of bed and get to your building in under 5 minutes. Some of the flats had a decent kitchen with a table and a couple of chairs for 4-6 people. Sadly I drew the short straw and had a flat with a tiny kitchen, no tables or chairs and it was shared between 8 of us. Nevertheless we still made it work, even without tables and chairs we all just chilled on the floor with our teas/coffees chatting. The cleaning staff are really friendly and aren't afraid to talk to you. It's probably the closest halls to town so it's great coming back from a night out because you never really need a taxi. It's also a short walk from the SU. The rooms are very spacious, I've had around 7 people incl myself sleep in the room. You have to go to Trevethwick for your evening meal however, you'll won't go as much and will probably end up cooking yourself. 8/10

It's definitely not the nicest place to live, but the location is fantastic. A 5 minute walk to town and barely a 3 minute walk to lectures, which really helps at 9am on a Monday morning...

The location is definitely most ideal however there is no communal area making social situations difficult, the general cleanliness is pretty low and not enough storage space.
