The location of these halls are some of the best you'll find, a 5 minute walk from the centre of Cardiff and the student's union. An ideal location if you're studying maths, psychology and bio-sciences. You are also provided with an evening meal which is a 5 minute walk away from the halls and the food is average. Any issues with the room I found were resolved quickly. A cleaner came once a week to clean to kitchen which was helpful. My room was a good size and could easily accommodate several people. However, the kitchen I had was tiny and was definitely not suitable for 8 people to use as it was a struggle if 2 people were using it. There are some flats that have a bigger kitchen but it really is luck of the draw. There was no table to eat on, just a small 'breakfast bar' with 2 stools. It would have been nice to have somewhere to socialise so people could get to know their flatmates.
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
