The good side, the location is fab, 5 mins away from MMU, and 15 mins from shops. But that’s it. Don’t be swayed by the location because this place is awful. On the website and in the room viewings they only show you the refurbished rooms which 80% of the rooms are not. They are old, creaky, smelly and cramped, not to mention freezing cold and incredibly dated. Yes the rent is super cheap, but there’s a reason for it. If you are in the basement people will pass by your window and kick the windows at night. The walls and windows are so thin you can feel a breeze coming through. The kitchens have a lingering dirty stench, but even if you wanted to stick around in the kitchen, you wouldn’t be able to because there is NO ROOM. And if you move out then Dwell will make you pay the entire years rent. A complete rip off and trap. I wasn’t expecting anything particularly nice and am no stranger to slumming it. But this place is shocking. Spend an extra £15 a week and find somewhere habitable.
As a budget halls, it's good value for money. Don't expect a comfortable time if you're going to be at one of the cheapest halls in Manc though. It does get really noisy at night on the street and down the main halls, and the wifi is unusable on macbooks BUT it is an old building, and you can see the old building charm sometimes. If you decorate your room well, it won't look like a standard hall, especially if you live in a 'plus' room. Many people rebook for another year or more, which is telling to how well they enjoy their stay here. It's definitely recommended for first year MMU or BIMM students looking to get a peak student experience. DEFINITELY not third years, postgrads and unrecommended for UoM or Salford Uni students, as it is far from Salford and UoM is a fair walk. Recently they updated security, so there's now less chance of break ins, but that also falls on students letting others through the security doors so if you live here, ALWAYS lock the doors, even if you're in.
