Stayed here but it is very old now and there are better student accommodation available. Depending on the block you stay in kitchens can be small or spacious. There is a tv in each kitchen but the B block has the best open kitchens. Also, everything does seem a bit used and abused now - the carpet needs replacing and you literally sink into mattress it is that old. If you are lucky enough to get a room facing the storage unit opposite you will have no noise but if your room is facing the busy main road you will never get any sleep. Forget about asking for a transfer to another room as once you are in there you have to stay there until the end of the year. The laundrette prices go up every year and the common room is so small its a joke. It is close to the uni but with the price you pay its simply not worth it. Cleaners are rarely there and some of the kitchens rarely get cleaned. Here they are very money orientated and avoid the woman in reception named Di as she is jealous, old +nasty
Worst place to live. Had so many problems with a flatmate not cleaning, smoking and we think doing drugs in the flat. Reported it to reception and they told us to act like adults and sort it out ourselves. Staff are really rude and unprofessional. Extractor fan was broken all year and they never fixed it so it stunk in the entire flat all the time. Costs tons of money to live in this horrible place
This is a terrible place when you spend 130+/week. Room with old mattress and old carpet. You dont know how many germs living with you. The utlitizes in the kitchen die often. And even worse, when you have some flatmates keep messing up and do not clean, you are the one to blamed too! And you have to clean all the mess for them and pay the fine! And the gate every people complained about, the place is actrually a hell with some money eating devils. Some advise, do not try to complain and negotiate anything with the reception, it does not work. Do not ever thing you can take the deposit back! Try to keep healthy, me and my friends are getting allergies living there! I would say any 80/week flat is better than this!
When you get a note about buybacks (a way to get money back if you leave earlier) it is absolutley pointless to floors 5+ maybe... and they get you hyped up for something that is totally a waste of time. Also, the accommadation itself is so pricey that if you have a low student loan.. you will have to get an overdraft. The fridge always over heated and made my food go off.. and when they tried to fix it.. it then frozen my food? Women in reception is always moody and doesnt listen to anything you say.. cus she is always right... apparently. The lift always breaks. Plus they put a man with a wheelchair on the first floor? So what if there was a fire and he couldnt get down the stairs? Overall.. this accomadation was sh*t.. lost all my money.. the only good thing is the security were friendly.. met some good people and there was free cake on some days in reception. Terrible place to live.
Absolutley terrible. Firstly... the gate system.. the turstile is so tiny and when you use the larger gate (if you come in a car/parents visit ect) you have to wait half hour for the gate to open! Also when they arrive in the car park... youre only aloud a 15 min visit... 25 pound fine if they stay longer.. you have to pay for a car to stay over night.. and only aloud one friend/partner to stay with you! Security are really friendly but the rules are so strict. Moan about noise.. we are uni students... we are going to go out or have some music on.. jeeez. Even when house keeping came once every week.. they would write a note about stupid things that wasnt a problem and even if it was a mess it wasnt all of us...there is always that one slob. We got told off for a balloon in the kitchen because it was my flatmates birthday? Another thing.. make sure you realise that once you pay for your deposit which is 300 pounds.. you WILL NOT GET IT BACK!!
Security is crazy strict and treat you like children, cleaners/inspectors check your kitchens every Wednesday. At peak hours the internet is terrible, expect to struggle to stream 480p videos, your communal space is tiny and the common room closes at silly hours.
The staff treat you like children and control how many people you are allowed in your room per day & per week & the time that they're allowed in, it's pathetic especially seeing as you are paying over 5500 for 9 months. So much hassle with the gate and to allow your parents in, there is a 25 pound fine if your parents stay in the car park too long <ie >15mins). You'd expect to be allowed who you want in your room and when and how many. You can only have a guest stay over 2x a week and no one can be signed in after 11 o'clock at night. You don't get a cleaner so I can't rate it. Your heater turns itself off automatically at 21C however it isn't accurate, to be warm you have to keep it on all day.
Halls are clean , living rooms small for the ratio of flatmates. Most of the utilities are not working or too old. The room for socialising (pool and darts) is cosy but there is no heating and is closed at silly hours.
security too strict! 2 noise complaints made about us one at Friday 8pm and we weren't even being noisy, should be investigated before being accused! Cant get shopping through turnstiles either! Apart from that good location, good sized kitchens, bathrooms and rooms! Need comfier sofas though!
Admitedly no ones first choice, st. Davids cons include poor location (get ready for lots of walking) and relatively bad value for money considering it is almost as expensive as some of the more popular halls. However, rooms have plenty of floor space and social areas make the experience far better in my opinion than you can have in any catered hall.
