Cleaners are lovely. Very social environment and you'll find that the common room will be a great place to go when you're bored as more often than not there is someone in there. I've had no issue with the quality of Internet but must say it is a long winded process especially if you're using a console or setting up a smart box. The cleaners do a great job of cleaning and are warm and hospitable. It's right on campus and a 1 min walk from the dining hall. I do feel that it's very over priced as I could move into a very nice city centre apartment on my own for the price we pay here. Would say it's a rip off. Apart from the price there's not much I can fault! If you're catered as everyone in Astbury usually is you'll probably get bored of chips by week 2 but the food isn't as bad as some people make out and there's always lots of options. The desserts are especially amazing.

I unfortunately had the joy of having my room placed over the common room of Astbury house and opposite the floors kitchen. Astbury loves having parties with music so loud, objects in my room vibrated. Reviewing the accommodation itself, its value for money is quite poor. Having a small room and only being £10 cheater than Sumner, where their room are nearly 3 times the size. I also think theres mold growing on the top of my door. I also had the pleasure of when moving in, finding something growing on my rooms balcony (which I couldn't get to since the window doesn't open that far due to safety reasons). It turned out to be onions which someone threw there (why I have no idea). The internet is very good quality, only having issues with it a couple of times when staying here. Its location however is not perfect. Due to being next to Fisher house and the student union bar, I could hear many parties that made me lose sleep.

Great fun if your sociable and outgoing. Not the best place if you want quiet accommodation or like privacy as theres also someone around! Quite alot of residents aswell so its a very busy house!
