Just don't bother. Construction work and loud drilling directly outside windows for weeks on end in EXAM SEASON, infrequently and badly cleaned, fines thrown around left right and centre, hot water outages frequently, most unsociable UCL hall, and the price is absolutely obscene,
Would definitely not recommend. Yes it is an en-suite accommodation and it’s in Camden but I (luckily) enjoyed the trek to uni everyday. However I’ve also been lucky to be in a sociable flat - I’ve met many other people staying here who have had a terrible halls experience due to the unsociable atmosphere. Considering the amount of money paid I think it’s absolutely ridiculous that we have cleaners to only clean our kitchen once every 2 weeks. I know many accommodations where people pay much less and yet still have cleaners in their flats weekly if not more than once or twice a week. The advertising is poor due to the stress on having ‘roof-top terraces’ when in fact these are only available for people who pay even more money to live in studio flats. The common rooms are nice I cannot fault & the bedrooms themselves are nice. The worst thing is that they have ridiculously decided to start construction DURING EXAMS! They drill and shout outside bedrooms everyday!
Pros: Great location, right in the middle of Camden. Broadband speed good, though the wifi is a bit patchy. There are reasonably-sized social spaces. Cons: Not very clean; general disrepair evident throughout; lifts frequently break down; never any hot water (lukewarm at best and often stone cold); inadequate kitchen facilities; walls paper-thin; no information given to residents about how to access bins/post/laundry facilities/etc; eye-wateringly expensive (especially given all the other cons).
Clean, big, comfortable, well-equipped ensuite rooms which actually look pretty nice. Right on the edge of Camden, so you get the best of Bloomsbury and the Camden amenities. Only thing is that it isn't very social between halls, but I got really lucky and shared with some amazing people so I wasn't hurting socially. Overall, I loved it!
