I stayed there from September 2013-April 2014. Good sized rooms, plenty of space, under the bed storage, the en-suite is an okay size - its not a wet room, there is a distinct shower 'cubicle' with a shower curtain and theres room to move, I was impressed as I'd seen many small university en-suites before. Our kitchen was small for 8 of us, we made it work but it could've been about a 1.3-1.5x bigger, I think we had one of the smaller sized kitchens but I don't know. The washing/drying can be expensive, and unless they've changed it moving in was difficult as we weren't allowed to park our car inside the gate, and had a 15 minute slot to unload everything. It takes about 25-30 minutes to walk from the flat to UCL, the buses take about the same amount of time. Okay area, really close to Islington (where there's a big Sainsbury's) and Kings Cross (restaurants, a few shops etc). Its also very close to the canal which is a lovely walk towards Regents park through Camden.
