In terms of location, this halls is fantastic, and the building is generally nice, with a decent social space, friendly staff and its kept clean. However, its pretty unsociable, and has a fair few problems. Not to say they don't try; there are tons of social events and parties that they organise, its just that everyone in this hall is a little useless at interaction! But, if you need a room, this is a good halls for that, and it does have its merits.
My only problem with Holborn, which is why it gets a low rating for me in terms of the social experience, was the flat system. It meant you couldn't do what you could do normally at halls, and just drop in and meet people. You couldn't get into other people's flats or have spontaneous gatherings because the flats were enclosed and you could only get into your own flat through your fob key (which meant to meet people required a little planning since you had to let them in and when term gets busy it becomes an obstacle). Past that, I had only one incident with hall management, for which they reimbursed me.
