Great location. Spacious and newly furnished rooms. The kitchen is small and the fridges limited in number so it is unimaginable for all even half the residents of each flat to be cooking simultaneous. In terms of property management the situation does not get any better. For example, if residents complain outside the property management’s office hours, or during the weekend, they will end up with an automatic email and with a bunch of phone numbers that will not be answered. This is simply unacceptable and shows a complete lack of interest in terms of the residents’ safety and well-being.Even at times when one goes to their office to complain about issues with their neighbours (noise during the night, unhygienic conditions in the corridor and bathroom, anti-social behaviour) management hesitates in taking up action, even when issues such as hygiene and safety are at stake. Basic living condition failed to be met something truly disappointing given what was promised and the money paid

Great accommodation if you are lucky with your flatmates. Pros: GREAT location!, Close to supermarkets, spacious and comfortable rooms. Good insulation from the outside. The property constantly provides treats and giveaways to engage with the residents. Had an issue with the heater and it was promptly resolved. Cons: Rooms that face the street can be a little noisy. No cleaning services or supplies. Thin walls. The management team is extremely nice and polite, yet that does not result in efficient results when you have clear issues in your flat. If you need help outside of office hours you can send emails or call multiple phone numbers and you will not get a reply. If you have severe problems, especially when it comes to other tenants, expect very little action from the team. We have had to deal with other tenant's issues, which is not our responsibility. When communicated to the management team, we were politely told to wait, have constructive conversations or call the police.

Friendly staff and a very easy process for booking the accommodation. The accomodation itself is great, particularly the location, and everything just seems to work.

All the facilities are good, my flatmates are great, for paying for premium my room is fairly smaller than the other rooms on my floor but otherwise no problems. ;)
