Positive: Flats of four, shower room and bathroom, good internet, quiet location, cheap for Edinburgh, spacious bedroom storage, nice kitchens, weekly cleaner, building 6 is all for PGDE teachers and student vets. Negatives: has had an ongoing mouse problem for years that they try to blame on whoever moves in next, only two washing machines for three buildings of students (both of which are constantly breaking), you're charged if you forget your keys one day, no common room, building 6 has red-ish carpet and curtains that aren't very nice looking.
4 downfalls: If you live on the bottom floor it's a bit annoying because you have a frosted window so can't look out. The interior isn't as fancy as some other halls. You have to go to another accommodation to use their common room. Laundry facilities a tad expensive (but so is all the other accommodation) Everything else: amazing. One of the cheaper university accommodation but you get alot for it! The bedrooms are such a decent size. In a flat of 4 people you'll have a shower room with a toilet and another toilet room. All of the staff, cleaners and RAs are lovely - if you have a problem they'll sort it out. It's a very good location. Wifi is brilliant. would recommend
Excellent location, 10 mins from Uni, 25 mins from main shopping and clubs. Such good value for money, very friendly as it is so small. No common room, which makes socialising within the halls difficult, and not much social life, so you have to make extra effort! But overall, really really enjoyed it!
