I felt that these halls were RIDICULOUS. The inspector was unnecessarily harsh and looking for easy fines (eg: was going to charge each tenant £35 for professionally cleaning the sofa when we managed to get stains out with soap and water, despite his reluctance). The halls were not presented in an initial perfect state (eg: stains on couch, cooking surfaces and carpet) which later was to be blamed on us? I won't lie, Riego Street is a great place to live. It is in a central location and is somewhat prepared for a first time renter. However it's serious issues of lack of drying facilities, uncaring security staff and urgency for profits by inspecting team make it difficult to live in. DO NOT LIVE HERE IF YOU CANT COPE WITH NOISE AND PARTYING

The halls are okay. The warden is a bit of a bitch so be wary what you say.

Halls over all were okay. Accommodation officers are harsh and uptight about everything, and like to make a quick bit of money from fining you over stupid things. Theres an infestation of bugs in the communal areas that wont go away.
