Do not live here. The en-suites are badly designed, with rusty fixtures and moldy walls. The shower does not drain properly, leaving standing water, and the ground floor flats do not have a lip in the shower to prevent water from getting on the floor. None of us have fans, with fire alarms in each room that are tripped by steam. My flatmate set it off multiple times, and the advice was to keep the window open (even in winter). My toilet leaks constantly, first rust water, now just puddles whenever it is flushed. My room overlooks a noisy, dim close. My window is covered by a metal grate preventing what little natural light from coming in. There are people constantly parking in front of my window. And when it isn't them, it is people on their smoke break, or loud groups drinking together leaving trash on my windowsill.
Absolute s******. Building has a mice problem and you will have them in your kitchen regardless of cleanliness. Property is severely mismanaged. Have had a fridge break and maintenance has told us there's nothing they can do about it even though that's their job. Shower has broken twice. The washing machine in the kitchen is false advertisement and the building is run-down. Appliances are all out-dated and the stove trips the circuit constantly. The bathroom cleaning schedule is mismanaged to the point where your fortnightly cleaning is sometimes a monthly cleaning. Our regular cleaner is kind, but we've been scolded by others for bathroom cleanliness when they've failed to show for their previously scheduled job. Management police you on every little thing despite failing to provide adequate living conditions on their end. For less than what accommodation charges, you can find a better room in a nicer flat in Marchmont or Bruntsfield. Absolutely do not waste your money on this dump.
Absolute s*******. Serious mouse problem that is never properly addressed, gates are not secure, 2 washers and dryers on the bottom floor for all 90+ residents to share. Very poorly managed...you'd be better off living on the streets
