Great value for money, bills included, tenancy all year round in a great location in Falmouth on high street, short walk to bus and train stops as well as the beaches at Gylly/Castle. Duty manager is really accommodating and happy to help whenever queries/issues arise and there's space downstairs to study + socialise

My experience has been really good so far, I feel safe here and the staff in reception are always very polite and friendly, making me feel welcome. Occasionally the WiFi, hasn’t work for a little while, but by-and-large, it’s as fast as they claim, all the time. The location is also very good, being right in the centre of town means you’re close to everything, but with the windows closed you wouldn’t think it with how quiet it is.

Management has been amazing & the apartments are great value for money (same price as uni accommodation and you get your own studio apartment). Highly recommend to any international students studying in Falmouth.

Hydrogen is a great quiet, clean open space for students. Jackie and Ian are especially helpful and super friendly. A main thing I like is the high end security and safety maintained outside and inside the building. The only thing I wish, as a first year student, would to be more events within the building to get to know other students living in the building too. :)

The main issue with Hydrogen is the security and guest policy - no guests are allowed (unless pre-approved by Jackie) after 11pm and security are hired to prevent unapproved entry. Security work every Friday and Saturday as well as random days throughout the week. Tenants must show their keys and provide their name to get entry to their rooms and certain security guards require that formal photo ID is shown too. Due to these rules, Hydrogen is the least social accommodation Falmouth has to offer - forget inviting over a significant other or friends if you haven’t already asked Jackie 9-5, Monday-Friday. These procedures contradict our tenancy agreement. Tenants joke that Big Brother is always watching because of the frequent and inappropriate use of CCTV - photo stills have even been distributed by Jackie to friends of tenants (data and privacy breach). Ultimately a fantastic place to live has been ruined - you couldn’t pay me to live here next year.

Rooms are clean and well fitted and corridors and communal areas are well maintained. The office staff are friendly and helpful and do their best to help with any issues or concerns in a prompt manner. Good location directly off the high street, and yet no issue with noise. Some wifi issues but jackie is working hard to resolve them. With key fob access, gate, security and cctv building feels secure.

Since moving in in September 2022, these are the problems I have faced. Only 2 washing machines and 2 dryers for 120 students. Wifi is temperamental at best and currently on day 4 of no WiFi at all and seemingly no fixes coming and no offer of a refund or anything. Installation of meters to track how much electric and water we are using following our move in, with the possibility they may start charging extra in the coming weeks, even though the contract is all bills included. Other residents here have no regard for others, loud and smoke inside the rooms half the time making the hallways and sometimes my room smell of cigarettes and / or weed. The rooms are designed more for looks than functionality, definitely not worth the money, even more so as prices are going up for Sept 2023. The pros Staff here are lovely and help as much as they can. Good location, in the centre of town, walk to Falmouth campus in 20ish mins and easy access to buses to Penryn Campus.

Jackie in the office is brilliant. Wifi is extremely hit or miss, we’ve currently had no wifi for 4 days now and there has been no discussion of a refund or when we will be back online, I have missed a few important University calls due to there being no wifi! I love my room but I would agree with other reviews and say that they are very expensive for what you get, I guess that’s what you get with living in the town and the rooms being studios. The social spaces are nice with comfy seats and a massive tv but you can only sit there most of the time if you know most of the people that live here cause otherwise you get glared at until you move. Some of the residents do ruin living here for other people by being noisy in the early hours of the morning when they’re coming back home from nights out on the weekend and just being inconsiderate of others. Most residents also don’t seem to understand how the recycling scheme works in Cornwall so some days our rubbish doesn’t get collected.

Jackie is super great, and all the RCs too! Some residents do ruin it for the rest of us though, and the WiFi is hit and miss

Friendly, kind and welcoming are how I would describe the environment at Hydrogen and its staff. From when I first moved in Jackie was there to listen and help any issues I have had. She continues to be a friendly face to greet no matter the day. The building and rooms itself are stunning and the best and nicest place I have ever lived. The rooms are pretty and spacious, feeling more like a place I live then a place I sleep. I would recommend this place to anyone that was looking for accommodation, but in particular anyone looking for first time accommodation. I have lived in many different student accommodations, and I can't think of a single that was better or that is comfyer for your first time away from home.

An amazing location with the ability to socialise with others but also time to yourself if needed. Issues are dealt with in a timely manner and the communication between the office and us students is great. Perfect for my year of study and for us to be able to explore Falmouth and the surrounding area!
