Only positive is that the the rooms are quite big. If you pay extra for an en-suite, the bathroom is the same size as one you would share with 2-3 people if you go for shared. You can’t have your parcels delivered to the flat and the office is at least a 20 minute walk away. Our hot water was getting turned off at night but they tried to say we were using it all when half my flat mates leave at weekends. The price is extortionate for what you get. Accommodation in Manchester is expensive anyway but usually for this price, you’d get a common room, gym etc but there’s nothing here. The main doors downstairs never really shut properly and don’t seem secure. The person to turn the fire alarm off is usually 2 hours away so if it’s going off at 1am, the fire men advise you to try and sleep through the alarm lol. I’ve seen the stairways get cleaned twice since I moved in in September and we had to beg them to provide a bin. The list would go on if I had enough room to write more lol.

The only thing its good for value is that they have a washing machine in the flat so you don't have to pay extra for your washings. There's only a bus 50 near to the accommodation but buses are rare (can be up to 20 minutes wait for each bus). I cant list any student accommodation that has a worse management than Daisybank Villas. 1st, the office is 15 minutes walk away (according to Google map). 2nd, the emergency hotline will not help you, eg my friend's studio flat has a rat at night, she phoned the emergency line and they told her to fill the 10 cm gap with her own clothes, if there's any damage(ie clothes bitten) or if she got bite by rat they won't take any responsibility. 3rd, my flatmate has been living without getting access to the post box for 7 months (more than half the time he's living here). 4th, during the course of 7 months, I have experienced 3 times staff breaking into my flat without any notice. They just knocked on my door and rudely ask for a viewing.

Extortionate prices for what you get. Kitchen/living room is so small that you’ll have to push the sofas (if you can call them that, more like concrete) around just to walk round it depending on where you’re trying to get to. There’s no common room or social spaces so if you want to meet people and socialise, you’re limited to who you share a flat with. You can’t get your parcels delivered to the halls itself and instead, have a 20 minute walk to the main office to collect them. The only part that gets cleaned is the small carpet area by the front door. We don’t get hot water after around 10pm. Maintainence are difficult to contact and you have to get in touch with the main office who only seem to reply to emails they find interesting. Intercom system is broken so you can’t open the front door to people unless you leave your flat. Windows don’t close properly and heaters smell funny which feels risky to use and the tv has about 3 working channels. But at least the rooms are big!
