Really nice and handy location. Not far from uni and a nice walk into the city too. Close to Leodis and not high rise makes it a great place to socialise as does the outside bbq area. Only problem is that there are no common rooms so all socialising is to be done in bedrooms or a usually messy kitchen. For student accommodation the value for money isn't too bad but the bathroom is shared and there is no common area so it could be cheaper to be fair.

I have had the best year at Monty B! It is so easy to make friends beyond your flat and you will get to know the rest of your block really well. Everyone spends so much time in the BBQ area during the evenings of freshers week so I would definitely recommend getting out there then! It is safe to say it is not the most glamorous of halls but in my opinion that is what uni life is all about. It is a great location to uni and town despite the hill.

Great location- only 5 minutes from uni. Loads of outdoor spaces including bbq area which is lovely in summer, Reasonably priced, however not the nicest living area and shared bathroom/kitchen. No indoor social spaces

MontyB is cheap and cheerful where you get what you pay for. It may not be the fanciest of accommodations, but the social side of it is amazing, and it's easy to make friends!

May be one of the cheaper options without a common room, but the layout means you will have the best social experience (having spoke to most people from the other accommodations). BBQ/grass area in the centre and the sort of circle layout means you are constantly bumping into people and having a chat, if you're more bothered about making friends and having the best social vibe over an expensive room, Monty B is the one!

The lack of indoor social space was a shame, but the outdoor BBQ area came to life in the summer. Monty B was good value for money and unbeatable location/proximity to uni - you could roll out of bed 10 mins before a lecture and get there on time. We had to use Ethernet cables for our internet (!!!!), but I think there's Wifi now.

Landed a disabled flat so lots of space and washing machine in kitchen. No common room or toaster given. Though not my thing, there are smoking flats available. Excellent distance from Uni of Leeds, only a short five minute walk uphill. Not near to any large supermarkets, unless you walk into the city centre for Morrisons. Very happy with accommodation although many people have mentioned limited storage space - so be prepared!

Best halls in Leeds, much cheaper than campus halls and so close to the uni! Flat system makes meeting people in other flats somewhat difficult but a very sociable environment so works out fine! Perfect location and lovely grounds with grass and BBQ area in the centre with 14 pretty red brick blocks surrounding it. Would definitely recommend

Good halls, quite basic and very quiet. Not social at all. Nice bbq area but not used often and very few hall events. Bedroom and kitchen are the living spaces and bathrooms are shared.

Great if no one lives there but the ceilings and walls are too thin, was up all most every night when anyone came in drunk (which was every night). Had a really horrible year, so glad it's over Unite owned places are better and cheaper

There is no social spaces but the location is great (10-15 minute walk). Even without a social space all my block is incredibly social and always meet in the kitchens. Good to not pay as much as other places eg Central Village. Not much of a looker but a brilliant place to stay for first year!

Good location. Poor facilities in halls that are always breaking. The accommodation office are poor. The decor in the rooms is so dated and not nice to look at. For the extra price for some of the other accommodations, they have much better facilities like sofas and tv's. I wouldn't recommend Monty B.
