Read Kelvinhaugh Street Reviews
I had read some reviews about the noise before living here, but really hadn't appreciated how bad it would be or how horribly it would affect me. I'm tired all the time, irritable and emotional. I have bought expensive ear plugs (but they only do so much) and go to visit family in a different city every two weeks or so, so I can catch up on sleep. Completely was not worth living here.
Have you ever been interested to know what sleep deprivation torture might be like? If so - living in Kelvinhaugh Street is the PERFECT opportunity to test your physical, mental and emotional fortitude. Or maybe you feel too happy? Too well-rested? Kelvinhaugh Street will fix that. With impressively loud doors and paper-thin walls, Kelvinhaugh Street is the place to be for 360 degree assault on the ears 24/7.
Would recommend not staying here. It's far too noisy at night with people and cars going past constantly. The fire-doors are ridiculously loud inside the flat, so anytime a flatmate leaves any room you're woken up or at least mildly annoyed by the unreasonably loud slam. The walls are so thin that we hear everything. My room was missing things that should have been there, and things are old and broken throughout the flat. I think it would be worth the extra effort looking for a private place.
Worst place I ever lived. I recomend everyone to search for a private apartment. Sure it is takes more time etc. but its worth in the long run. Especially when you are an international student and think it might be inconvenient for you to search for an apartment by yourself, but you will regret to spent your time in a tiny box like room for maybe double the price than a shared flat would cost. Plus the walls here are paper-thin. I got constantely woken up at night by my faltmates just going out of their room since we have this extermly unreasonable firedoors in everywhere which are extremly loud. Also the waterpipes are running through the walls can wake you up or just your flatmat talking on the phone because you can seriously hear everything through the walls. They do regular inspection during the most stressful time of the semester and make you clean up instead of writing essays. There are so many better place - just don't choose this one.It looks like a prison.
Very standard student halls. I.e. expensive and crap. But the location is fairly good. Close to shops, the uni, and places to visit. It can be quite noisy at night as this area has a lot of student accommodation.
