Loved it! I was a bit worried before I came because it is a small hall and people said it tended to be quiet. That was not an issue in my block.. Obviously it just depends on who you end up with but my block got along really well, we had pres together all the time and sat outside on the grass as soon as the sun was out. I know it wasn't like that in all the houses but if you don't get along with your block or flat you are at least really close to campus and Lafrowda which is massive, and if you make friends in your course instead chances are at least a few of them live in Lafrowda. Also, double bed, en suite (not a wet room thank god). big kitchen and "living room" with bean bags and sofas that only 6 people have to share. also we had the best cleaning lady, make friends with them and they will probably let you get away with more than they should.. my only complaints are the very creaky floors in some rooms/flats and the wifi was sometimes garbage...
Everything you'd want from first-year accommodation. Along with Lafrowda and Rowe, it's the closest you can get to the centre of campus, and is only a 10-15 min walk into town. Socialising is really easy because each house making up St German's is a lot smaller compared to other accommodations, so it has a 'family' vibe. You also get a double bed, a big wardrobe, and an ensuite with a proper shower door (not just a shower head that sprays straight onto the floor). Score!
