If you're in the non ensuite part it can be a bit grim but the rooms are massive and you get so much storage space. Ferens is very social and if people are making noise it often echoes across the quad so if you want a bit more peace and quiet then maybe choose somewhere else as the walls are really thin too. One downfall is that there are no common rooms or anything, so you end up spending time in other peoples rooms or your own room. You also share a bathroom with 4 others so its relatively clean, but watch out for the spiders everywhere! Overall I have enjoyed living in Ferens!

Student Review: 4 /5
By On 30th July 17

The en-suite block is newer and nicer, but more expensive than the others. There are two blocks stuck on the end (Dons 1 and 2) avoid Dons 1 at ALL COSTS. If you get put there, move. No kitchen, weird bathroom arrangement , only 5 rooms in the block (terrible for socialising) and terrible wifi. Dons 2 however is better value for money than any block in Ferens with a full kitchen between only 4 people and huge rooms. Only downside is it's still only 4 people. Neither of these blocks are connected to any others too, so socialising with the rest of the hall is harder. The cleaners however seem to just take all stuff they see and throw it in the first cupboard or drawer they see regardless of whos it is or if it's clean, so watch out for that. Found other people's dirty cutlery with mine on more than one occasion after the cleaners came.

Overall good, but wifi is bad in the evening and the rate of repair of things that urgently need fixing can be very slow i.e. broken toilets can take over 2 weeks to be fixed

The only downside is that cottingham is a bit outside of hull but the bus to asylum on a Wednesday night is the best

Very cheap compared to other halls. However, don't expect much! The kitchens are the tiniest, it's a struggle with one person, good luck with two. The rooms are decent but very old.
