Most helpful review

My experience so far at Capital Gate has been great. The staff are super welcoming and friendly are happy to help. I haven’t experienced any issues whilst at the sight but I’m sure that the staff would be more than helpful and diligent. Particular mention to Mark, who works the night shift. He is very alert and focused whilst remaining welcoming. it makes the place feel much more secure and safe at night and I know that he would be willing to help all the students.

Q&A


Q
I'm so confused. I am seeing half and half reviews, half saying this place is amazing and well worth staying here, and the other half the complete opposite. I have booked to stay here in September, but am now dubious because of some of the insanely bad reviews I have read. I don't know which reviews to believe and whether this place is worth staying at or not!

Literally do not bother with this accommodation. If you go on trustpilot you can see the real reviews instead of the ones coaxed out of international students by capital gate, which is the only way they’ve managed to stay afloat to this date. Everything about this place is a shambles, the flat I lived in wasn’t even cleaned before we moved in so my flatmates mum had to do it herself. Everything was used/broken and there are rats near the bins. Even worse they want us to pay rent through a pandemic because the circumstance apparently isn’t ‘extenuating’ enough. Anyone who works here or feeds them good reviews should be ashamed of themselves because you are literally helping more students be scammed into staying in THE most depressing place I’ve ever been in my life :)

AWFUL. During first year I decided to stay here due to the price being cheap. It is cheap for a reason. It’s situated in a really bad area, I’ve seen heroin users leave needles by the front gate, I’ve witnessed arson just outside the flats from my front room, I’ve been approached by prostitutes just outside the accommodation, and alcoholics routinely wait outside the back gates which is intimidating. The actual company is also dreadful. I returned after covid to find silverfish bugs in my room and spent lots of money cleaning my things. They claim there was not any signs of bugs though so never got any compensation. After quarantine I returned back to flat to find all the stuff in my kitchen STOLEN. Capital gate gave me a voucher of £50 which was not enough to cover the £150+ loss. The stuff in my kitchen was stolen by random people they let move into our flat without telling us. The biggest positive of this place is the front desk staff, Faye in particular.

Perfect place to live . Really close to uni and to the city centre and with everything that we need to have a wonderful experience . People are always ready to help you ( especially Faye that helped me a lot , not only during the year but also during quarantine time always checking if I was fine and if I needed something, so , for her , a big thank you ) . Good rooms , with enough space and a really nice study desk . Big kitchen with all the home appliances that we need ( microwave , toaster , kettle , ... ) . I really recommend Capital Gate to live and to have a perfect experience here at Liverpool . Definitely , I made a good choice when I decided living here 😁

The location is what made me choose Capital Gate in the first place, at the back of Lidl and 5 mins from the Harold Cohen Library. The silver rooms are a good size and the kitchens are plenty big enough for all your friends. The absolute only downside of the place is the price, it can be expensive compared to student houses but you get a lot for what you pay. Don't bother living in uni halls, here is cheaper and far better. The staff are fantastic, especially Faye and Bree who always brought a smile to my face whenever I wandered in. I've lived here 2 years and I'm going to miss it.

DO NOT STAY HERE! Student Roost operates solely for profit and do not care about their occupants. The staff on the front desk are lovely but the business as a whole is NOT to be trusted; do not give this greedy company your money! The facilities are dirty, there’s used needles outside the gate, the gates were mostly broken, lights always broke, rubbish washing machines and dryers. Even in the midst of a global pandemic and university closing, they still want all of your money even if you move out. NO compassion whatsoever. When I moved in there was mould all over my bathroom and the paint had completely chipped off the wall, with the toilet seat hanging off also. Just not at all worth it, much much nicer accommodations out there.

I have enjoyed my time at Capital Gate but there are definitely things that could be improved. There is no common room, just a table tennis in reception which makes it hard to meet people from other flats. However the staff are lovely and the location is ideal for people attending Uni of Liverpool.

Capital gate is a perfect location for Uni of Liverpool students. In addition I would say the security is great, always leaving tenants as if they are in a safe secure place.

The manager Kelly and reception staff Faye & Bree are awesome! Friendly, kind, they always ask you about your day, about your time in Capital and if there's any problem they will fix it soon. The place is at a stone's throw from the campus and 10 min from town, cosy kitchen and fully equipped rooms. I really have spent a good time this year. Gonna miss you guys!

As my experience as a student at Liverpool for 4 years this by far is the worst place I lived. Though its location is ideal, crawl out of bed and get to your lecture in 5 minutes. Value for money is terrible there are by far better places to stay at. Hope you have a better experience in your first year good luck.

Too expensive, area okay but felt unsafe first few weeks as electronic gate had broken and drunks were drinking on our wall. Actually saw needles around the area too. We had no cleaners, and the main issue was no reclying bins! The washing and drying facilities were too expensive for what they were too. However, management, reception and maintenance were always on form.

No security, my room was broken into and the main gates broken into multiple times. cleaners are awful and do not clean, they bang on your bedroom door at 9am until you take your bins out. reception staff no help if there's an issue, only good thing is repairs are done quickly.

Really noisy, regardless of the day, time of day, or time of year (excluding summer as I am leaving early may). If I called security they took almost 20 mins to get to where the noise was coming from, by which time the noise had stopped, meaning I had a knock on my door from security at 3am asking why I called. The cleaner we originally had refused to clean the side because their were two pieces of pieces of paper there 'obstructing'. The second cleaner seemed to roughly touch the hob and mob (not sweep) the floor, leaving damp bits of food and dirt all over the floor. Our current cleaner is slightly better though the cleaner comes less than every fortnight which is what it's supposed to be. The back gate has always been dodgy, often not working anyway, and in the rain the fobs to get in don't work at all so we have to go all the way around the building.
