Security guards walk into your flag because of a ‘noise compliant’ without knocking. WiFi is appalling, the office is not interested and tell us to ring the company ourselves to sort the issue out. Social spaces are all shut so they’re awful. These flats were not cleaned properly AT ALL, and the inspection was poor. My walls were stained, my windowsill was black and my bathroom was smelly. The mattress is uncomfortable and I now have backache.
Cheap by price, not by quality. brilliant in accomodating me at such short notice. All the office staff are lovely, security team are sound (especially big steve, that man is the nicest guy you will ever meet). Left my key in my flat a few times but as long as you make your face familiar they will let you back into the compound. Located about 10 minutes walk from city centre, the value for money is brilliant. Compared to other accomodations such as marybone 1/2, this accomodation is superior. You get an en suite bathroom, double bed and all bills paid for less then the second cheapest (marybone 1 which you have a shared bathroom). The cleaners carry out weekly checks to make sure your kitchen and hallway is reasonably tidy. (no ocd here, if its not tidy, they will leave you a message to tidy it, or they will clean it for you for a small fee. I lived in block 9B, FLAT 150, ROOM 5 last year (2018/2019), i am staying again for 2nd year.
Excellent value for money, nice room and kitchen, having your own toilet really is great, and management are friendly. But the noise from the Fresher's is intolerable, even outwith Fresher's week. The good location rating suffers as a result and the fantastic social experience is ruined by it. Security can only do so much. Yelling, loud music, shouting, animal calls, etc. my window, like a lot of them, looks on to three other blocks - I wouldn't chose this place again as a result. I'm exhausted for lectures day after day unrelentingly, up at 2am, 4am even 6am.
The location is only good if you go to uni at Byron street everything else is an awkward distance away including shops. The internet is patchy and sometimes doesn't work for a day. They don't allow cars into the compound (apart from when you first get dropped off) so getting dropped off can be difficult if you have a lot of stuff. The staff can be very whiney if they come round and the kitchen isn't spotless. The security are good at keeping out the riffraff and will let you sign in a maximum of 3 friends if you have more get your flat mates to sign in a few.
Yes it's a bit pricey but the location, the facilities and the newness of it more than make up for that. I've had a great experience here so far. It's secure, but not too strict and it's only 20 mins max from most places you'll want to go.
Only a 5 minute walk to my lectures and the library which is really ideal. About 10/15 minutes walk to town/gym. Closest Tescos is near Moorefields station, so 10 minutes away. It's quite an ideal place to live if you're lectures are at Byrom St. The bedrooms and living space are great. Can put pictures up to make it homely. Events are put on in the accommodation such as pub quiz and bake off. No communal area to hang out, so quite difficult to meet people other than those in your flat or on your course. Also rent is starting to get too expensive (£120 per week in September!)
