You get a wash basin, a bed (albeit not a very comfortable one, but all Strathclyde halls are quite similar, asides from some having double beds), plenty of storage space, a desk, a lamp, plenty of electrical sockets and a LAN connection. Outside of your relatively small room there's either a corridor with 6 people living in it, or 12. Each 6 people get two shower/toilet rooms and a kitchen. The corridors aren't really separated in any way, so you can use pretty much any you'd like. The kitchen, especially compared with some other halls, is rather spacious. I've never really had problems cooking food, as in, no one there bothered me. Same can be said about the showers and toilets. There's little chance you will run into both of them being used at the same exact time. It's quite an active hall, in the sense that there's quite a few parties going on every week. So if you dislike noise and prefer peace and quiet, you might want to look for elsewhere.
It's certainly very different to the other halls in the strathclyde student village in that instead of sharing a small hall with four or five people you share an entire corridor with up to eleven people which is alright for the most part it can cause some distress in the communal areas as they get very messy very quickly but I've never really used them so that didn't really bother me over all I would say it's a nice place if your a heavy sleeper (which fortunately I am)
