I stayed at Tufnell House for my three month work placement in London. As it was only a short term let, we had the premium studio rooms. I was on the ground floor and was initially a little worried about security but the whole building is very secure and there are security or reception staff working 24/7 and they are all very friendly. The room had everything I needed- heating, air on, mop, Hoover, lamp, bin, desk chair and stool etc. Any issues could be reported online and they were all resolved within 2 days. The social spaces were all very nice and modern and the gym was small but open 24/7 so it was good as I was at work most of the week. They also organised free social events such as a St Patrick's day party and valentines party with free food and drink. I would definitely recommend Tufnell House as the location is great for getting into the city centre, although maybe have a viewing if you think the tiny showers will be an issue as they are VERY small!

NEVER live or even stay there for short time. You'll definitely regret. People get drunk and make constant & loud noise at night. You won't be able to get good sleep thanks to those jerks. Complaints don't work!! Bathroom, particularly the shower is a joke. They don't even let you see how it looks in the photo gallery or virtual viewing online, which is self-explanatory. Surrounding area is scarcely populated. If u'r a girl (even a boy alone) better not walk in that area after 8pm. My British local friend warned me of the potential danger of walking alone, who insisted and offered to drive me home once when it was only 7pm! Daily grocery shopping is very very inconvenient. As the nearest one (Burgeons) is a "daylight robbery". The price there is unreasonable compared to Poundland (13 min walking) Tesco (15 min walking) & Morrisons (20 mins walking). only No.4 bus nearby w/ average waiting time of 12 mins, which is quite inbearable if u only need to ride it for grocery shopping.

The worst accommodation I have ever stayed in. Will never reccommend it. When I moved in to my studio the room was extremely dirty and dusty, the chair was broken( so I had to buy a new one)the sink was broken, the windows were broken. Seems that nothing was done since the previous tenant las left. There are cracks all over the walls, the room is so old that the ceiling is cracking all the time. As there was something wrong with the windows I could feel the wind coming, so I had to buy an extra heater as it was freezing, but still got cold four times in a year as I woke up in a cold room. I had to complaint thousand times but nothing was effectively done until I talked to the manager. Some members of stuff are unwilling to help. SometimesI had to wait more than for 24 hours so someone will come and fix things. The interesting thing is that when I had my viewing they showed me completely different, clean rooms that, I assume, are there only for showing people. +lots of spiders in room!

I am very satisfied with living at Tufnell House. The location is great- the area is quiet and peaceful with lots of nice small shops and cafes around. It is also very close to the city centre and vibrant area of camden. The building itself is very neat and well-managed. The stuff is always welcoming, friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this place!:)

Awful - Advertises laundrette facilities and internet which they take no ownership over and are a complete joke. Heating system is shocking, apparently this is the first time people have complained though as they're supposedly changing it over... I doubt this happens. Shower is beyond small, I hope you enjoy the shower curtain sticking to you as you slowly rotate to try and wash yourself without drenching the room. Security are beyond lazy, rude, and struggle to understand English - although they manage to do so fine when watching YouTube? Oh, and don't expect them to actually stop any theft, or stop any of the late night partying that keeps everyone awake. All in all - worth about £50 a week - not the £210+

The best part of this place is the local cat that wanders around. As a postgraduate, I've experienced several student accomodations around the country, all of which are about half the price and offer a far better service. The room is relatively well sized for a student accomodation, but the en-suite shower room is beyond small - there is no way you can stand and shower without: a. having the shower curtain hug you, and/or, soaking the room. The accomodation 'offers' laundry services, by which they mean they have a laundrette on site that they take zero responsibility for as it is run by Circuit, who charge 2.90 for an eco wash that leaves soap on your laundry, so it's actually 3.40+ for a wash, and another 1.40 for an hour on the drier, but you'll need to at least two hours worth if you don't want wet clothes. It's also left in a constant state, as the cleaners seem to ignore the place. The machines are filthy and haven't been scrubbed since September, making the whole washing proce

In my opinion, overall is quite good, but some staffs at the reception are suck and idiot because they do not have any responsibility for their work.
