I have been living here for the past nine months and I am low maintenance and don't have much to ask BUT I have never met unhelpful staff in my life as the staff here. They don't reply to emails and dont track their communication. I have to explain my issue to everyone who happens to sit on the reception on that day. They dont even try to make an effort, all they say is 'there is nothing else we can do about this' for a simple thing that can be resolved. The manager is there from 2-4pm (only) and we have to plan our days according to that time slot if we have a problem. The only reason I am staying here is because it's close to my school.
The location of dinwiddy is really good. It is only a short walk from SOAS and is very close to Kings Cross. I did however move out halfway through the year. Other students there are also very nice and very welcoming but the quality of the accommodation was very poor, especially for the amount of money you have to pay. Rooms, especially bathrooms, we're pretty poor and the shower wasn't good at all. I also have seen both cockroaches and mice within the building. There are also frequent fire alarms and times when water (usually hot) does not work. I also know people who's locks have been broken for a long time. Overall, it is in a nice location but if possible I wouldn't pay the money for the quality of accommodation you get.
