Read Hazel Farm Reviews
Very good price, (it was £69pppw when I was there!) with a horrible location and the bus service with arriva did not help. They're the most unreliable service I've ever seen. It did take 30 mins or so to get into uni, often on packed to the brim buses, and it has happened that I've been refused entry to the bus as it was so full when those who were going to Manor Park decided to get the 27 bus, so you have to wait for the next. On the social side, it was fun. Bus journeys at night were lit, the predrinks are fun and it's quite a close knit community if you meet the right people. I'd go back there again if I could for the price alone
As long as there is no direct shuttle from Hazel farm to campus, it takes too long by the town circular bus. Social experience was only so great because my flatmates became my best mates, however that was random. Sound travels too well in Hazel farm, warning for those who end up living right near the wardens, additionally the walls between houses are quite thin. I rarely went to the common room, however there is no social space\living room in Band A accommodations. There is nothing in walking distance except for an over priced corner store.
Overall Hazel Farm is really good in terms of value for money and room size. The room I had was actually more spacious than Band D rooms. The only issue was the distance from Uni and town. Otherwise no issues with Hazel Farm whatsoever:
Very cheap and absolutely lovely massive rooms. HOWEVER the buses never turn up when they are supposed to which means clubbing becomes very expensive because of taxi fares, and you have to be at uni 1/2 an hour to an hour early for lectures just in case.
