It's OK. Bit brilliant, but at last check it's the cheapest Private Halls in Cardiff. Free WiFi tips out at 50mb which is fine. Its not blistering fast but it's free so can't whinge. You can go up to 100mb but Ask4 (the provider) are extortionate. Last year lots of foreign students, and a good.mix of first second and third years with a handful of master's guys too. Socially it's meh, there's no common it social spaces apart from a couple of sofas in reception. Usually a free barbecue at move in, and the staff to be fair are good. BCD blocks have no lift so if you're disabled you'll need to let them know you need the lift. Only qualm is the heat. Not even full summer and my rooms topping out at 36°c which is mental. Buy a fan! You're all of five mins stumble to the pub and the the city centre so always somewhere to go.
Best things about liberty park is the location. It's about a 15/20 minutes walk to uni (usw) which some consider bad but I don't think it's that far of a walk. Also, it's about 10/15 from town, easy walk, good for getting to clubs, and if you're feeling lazy, an uber is only £4. What else is good is the staff, can't fault them, any time there were any problems they were really quick to sort them, they also tried to help if you fell out with flat mates. As well as this, the beds are super comfy! Bad things are, no common room- other than the reception area which has a TV, the trains... they can be really noisy depending on which floor you're on and which side of the building. The laundry is really expensive if you do a wash and tumble dry- I think it's about £4-5. Also I'd say due to the small size of the overall accommodation and kitchen/living area it isn't great for social- having more than 8 people round was difficult as we were so tight for space. Minus all of that.. I had fun!
Absolutely outstanding people that live here, there was a lot of activities set up in freshers and after by management to help us make friends. The location is phenomenal as it's just next to the city centre which enables easy access to shops and bars and also keeps you tucked out of most of the drama on match day even though the millenium stadium is right opposite the accommodation. Where the money is concerned I think it's scandalous at almost £5000 per year, but I guess it's personal opinion. Staff were not accommodating to students who's student finance were late in. There's no cleaners which sucks, I know of halls that have cleaners and are cheaper than the one I live in. There's no common room, you do get a tiny kitchen/living area which gets far too warm during parties. B,C and D block all have 4 floors and no elevators, I think that should be changed as it is so hard to move in and out. Overall the halls aren't perfect but they have a quirky charm.
