It's been a long year for me, and I haven't had much family support. But recently I have been able to count on the team at Garrow to talk to and brighten my day. Federica all puts a smile on my face. I can see she does that for other students too. The rooms here are big and have everything you need. I spend a lot of time in the courtyard hanging with other students. The park near here has a great skate park and nice greenery. It's right on the Canal, lots of shops and close to Westfield.

I have to say this is a place where I feel happyness. All the staff are very kind, even if my English is not good, they try to understand me and help me. I have lived here for one year and I have already booked a room for the next year. I'm very happy with the prices, you know a room with a bath and a kitchen is very expensive in London, nobody can do it as cheap and comfortable as garrow house. Besides, all the facilities in the room are very good, and there are no problems during my stay. The apartment is next to the pier and there's a river. I love it. All in all, it's a place where I feel warm and safe.❤️ Just like at home.❤️

Hi, I have lived at Garrow House for 3 years with this being my last. I have checked out a lot of student accommodations in the area and this is the best. It has a view of the canal and a balcony. I always come back here because the flat is huge, the staff are nice and it's in a central location being 15 minutes by tube to westend.

Garrow house is a fantastic student accommodation, I like the fact that my flat is self contained and there are no shared facilities, except the common room and study space. Which I've used on many occasions. I extended my stay in the summer and got a chance to get to know London, I really enjoyed my time it's a fantastic city.

Love it here, next year will be my 3rd year living here and I love it. Rooms are spacious, with big windows and proper kitchens. The students here are friendly and I have made lasting friendships. Helps the Portobello Road and Westfield are on the doorstep.

I really enjoy living here, my room is beautiful. I have a balcony and a view of the canal it's so pretty. The rooms are very spacious and have TV's! It's very chill and nobody bothers you. 100% recommend! It has its flaws but out of the 5 student accommodations i've lived in London, is the best one. The location is the BEST! 5min walk to Portobello Road!

Where to begin. This is the worst accommodation humanly possible in London as a student. Just to begin some of the problems we've had: the lift wasn't working for 6+ months, hot water has now been out for over 2 weeks (we have to shower at a local gym), there are leaks on multiple floors, our wifi has been going in and out. And that's just in the last 10 months. The company refuses to invest any of the plenty of money they get from high rents back into the building. Although on the surface it may look nice, underneath are the poorest quality heating, pipes, and electricity requiring constant maintenance. I have lived here for about 2 years and have often considered terminating my contract early - but legally they won't let me! The building is only 1/3 filled for a reason: it's a horrible place to live.
