Terrible location, not convenient for getting to uni or to town, although the station (St David’s) is only two minutes away. The nearest supermarket is all the way up at the high street. On nights out you have to either walk up a steep secluded staircase through trees, or up a partially lit alleyway. There was even a murder investigation in the house opposite the flats and police were stationed there 24/7 for most of the year. The “social” area is literally a concrete courtyard, and the rooms themselves are very isolating. The fire alarms go off constantly. The train tracks run directly behind the flats and can be heard all day. The windows on the rooms hardly open and are tiny. You have to do all your cleaning yourself, which is fine, but for the same price other halls offer cleaners. The maintenance crew do fix things quickly though and the wifi was good. There’s also decent security in the Point Exe buildings themselves.
The only good thing about this hell hole is the wifi. Upon arrival our cooker had no numbers on whatsoever, frequently the boiler broke and we had no hot water for quite a lot of the first term, the windows of the room are covered with a black substance, the location is abysmal with nothing nearby, unlike the halls in a similar price range such as Lafrowda you don't get a cleaner and the rooms are small in comparison to other halls. All in all, I would recommend avoiding this awful place at all costs.
The location is very inconvenient there are no nearby shops other than londis. You cannot go out alone at night as the way back involves a few unlit dodgy alleys and I have seen lots of suspicious figures and been chased and shouted at by men on my way home. The rooms are tiny and boiling hot however, if you open the window its too loud to sleep and the hobs in the kitchen hardly work. The location is very isolating and its hard to socialise with other people where it is. One of the worst things about it is that there is no social area which means you are restricted to your flat. Therefore, if I could I would give the social experience 0 stars as well as the location. There is no cleaning here as well.
