My experience here has been amazing. The front desk staff are great for when you are coming in and always ready to have a little chat to make your mood better. Public spaces are immaculately maintained and any issues that I have raised have been fixed within days.

Do you have to have a guarantor

Q
As a volunteer at the European championships, I am interested in booing accommodation at Liberty House from 2 - 10 August 2018. Could you let me know whether you have single availability, preferably in an en suite room?

Rat problem for the past 2 years, price increase of over £50 per week despite stingy budget cuts like automatic hallway lights that only turn each suquential light on when you are right underneath it. With no windows in the corridors either it makes the walk in and out of the room depressing regardless of the time of day. Kitchen light on automatic too means it turns off if you stand still while cooking. Way more expensive than other properties in the area but has zero social spaces and kitchens are barebones too hence why me and others are moving out ASAP

I had a lovely time at merchant city house. I have lived in the place for two years and I have never had major issues or issues that were not solved. The super friendly team at the reception always brought some light and positivity in the cloudy Glasgow days. Having a little chat especially with Rae or Lois on my way in or out always brought my mood up, which is a great and important thing especially for students! In general all the staff has always been very helpful and friendly.

Since Day 1 I have had a heart warming welcome from the staff, who are very polite and sociable. I often spend a few minutes speaking with Rae and Kelly at reception before or after class and it always puts a smile on my face. The facilities in the accommodation are easy to use and accessible. I haven't had any bother from using the appliances in the kitchen. And the laundry room in the basement is straightforward in terms of use. The room is fairly spacious, the bathroom is rather compact, for those who are quite tall you may have to watch your head on the door frame. The bed is comfortable, plenty of shelving space and a decent sized desk with a slide out shelf for putting keyboards or laptops. The desk also had 3 deep drawers for all storage needs. And finally a tall wardrobe with a mirror on one of the doors, 2 shelves, a coat rack and 5 smaller shelves for clothes and belongings. Overall I recommend the accommodation as its good value and located very centrally.

I’m having a really good time so far, and especially with Rae. She is so helpful and communicative and a lot of times we have a chat at the reception me and the other guys in the accommodation.

It's safe and comfortable with good Wi-Fi, but there are no rooms to socialise in sadly.

The location is definitely one of the best parts about this accommodation, however personally I’d say the staff are the best. They make you feel at home and comfortable, not only this but are very easy to talk to. Kelly and Rae are two of the nicest receptionists anyone can ask for.
