The location is good, being about 15 minutes away on foot from the city center. The internet connection is fairly bad, with the signal being weak, often cutting out and barely even reaching to the kitchen. A positive fact is that you only share a bathroom with one more person which includes a bath. Rooms are decently sized. However, what is most likely the most annoying feature of aberconway, is the fact that residence staff have master key cards which leads them to entering our flat and often even our rooms with little notice. This has often been a cause of awkwardness and discomfort. Moreover, the kitchen theoretically gets cleaned once per week by a cleaner, however this typically includes all of our things left out being lumped together (regardless of whether they are clean or dirty) as well as occasional threats to clean the kitchen ourselves in fear of getting fined. I would recommend opting for a private hall of residence, which provides better value for money and less issues.

Small halls, though there are a lot of nice people, if you're one to go out loads you might have trouble finding likewise people (it is manageable though!). Really good location but cleaners hardly clean and maintenance take ages. Good sized (but ugly) kitchens and really spacious rooms with lots of storage but severe lack of social space. As these halls are so old there are hot water pipes bare INSIDE the rooms which makes some rooms unbearably hot. Close to lidl, town and uni, no need for taxis. Everything is painted blue. There is also a sense of community as it is easy to get to know everyone since there are so few of us (one facebook chat for the entire hall).

Rooms are fairly spacious for a cheap price and the halls are located extremely close to the city centre.

Very good hall situated in a great location!! Only downside was that there was a lack of a social space/common room.

As they are really small halls, it's difficult to meet a lot of new people, unlike taly. However, the people I did meet are fantastic and really fun and the halls themselves are the perfect location and managed really well. Although bigger kitchens in the 3 people flats would be nice and better social areas. BUT for the price I paid (around £3647) it is really good quality. Also the shared bathrooms are basically suites anyway as you only share with 1 - 2 others.
