Ignored the reviews and decided to stay here. Dont know where to start, zero effort in matching flat mates with similar interests etc. Its very boring and most people keep to themselves. The halls consists probably of 90% foreign students and there doesnt seem to be much mixing. The fact you have to pay this year way over the months rent (which means you dont pay the last two months) is ridiculous as it makes it so expensive. Also dont get a room on the side of the building facing Aldi as nobody on this side gets sunlight and youll find it hard waking up and find yourself falling asleep a lot in the afternoon.
What can I say, but if you want to know what it would be like to stay in a monestry in a graveyard in the desert, then this is the place for you. 'social area' consists of a few chairs and a ping pong table with the staff at reception watching you, but at least the WiFi is reasonably good because you will spend most of your time sitting in your room because its so fantastically quiet.
Pretty good private halls, located a couple of minutes walk from the nearest uni buildings, but the common room is crap. there's not much talk between flats so far which is a bit weird. WiFi is great and it's pretty decent value for money.
