Really good accommodation in terms of social life, lots of parties etc. However, if you’re looking for accommodation that looks nice and is kept on top of in terms on maintenance then this isn’t the place for you. Accommodation services are bad for responding to maintenance reports and the building in general is old and you will inevitably break something, accident or not. If you’re looking for an amazing social life and aren’t that bothered by mess then this is perfect, but if you’re a tidy person and prefer peace and quiet then don’t live here.

Helvellyn may look pretty on the outside, I always liked the look on tourists faces when I walked into the big slate mansion, on the inside however it's kind of a mixed bag, the rooms vary in size from Ball room to broom cupboard on every floor and the walls are so thin you can hear everything that happens in the house everywhere, but the nice thing about Helvellyn especially in a global pandemic, is as well as a roof over your head it'll also give you a social life too without really trying. Plus it's cheap

Considering how cheap the accommodation is I’d say it worth the money if only problems would get sorted faster as everything tends to break very easily.

Over lockdown I feel like everyone in my accomodation cane together and we all became much closer. I still see most people in Helvellyn as my second family to this day.

Rats, weed, flooding, single glazing, the occasional ceiling falling in, and The Notorious V.I.C. - a strangely fond experience, with hilarious memories I will cherish for a long time. If you want some polished, put together student pad then definitely steer clear of this place entirely. But if you want something a little different to tell the Grandkids, then welcome to Hel! It's a s*******, but you'll learn to miss it.
