It is truly great to live here. Ideal location, so pretty - you feel like in a hotel. Also I have never ecperienced not having hot water and you can actually control the temperature of your room! I really appreciate, as it is a new accommodation, that everything works and if you have any kind of problem, the management team is so lovely and they always solve the problems very quickly. Except for the price, can't recommend more. I believe that it is worth it though.

No social experience, flats are nice but cheap appliances, rooms are really hot and windows hardly open to let air in. Kitchens don't have extractor fans so it just turns to an oily mess. Security is over the top and sometimes mates can not come to visit you.

Location is the best part. 10-15 minute walk to campus. Right by the centre of town. Downside of this is it is stupid loud at times. I had a room facing the Sandman Hotel. I would hear people partying outside until late at night, garbage truck crushing all the glass bottles early in the morning (around 5 am). The sun would heat the room up extremely when it was up, but opening the window would bring insane amount of noise in. It's hilariously impossible to sleep at times. The doors are notorious for being banged (hinge is heavy), which can wake you up in the nights. The rooms aren't big, but they are modern and nice. Being a first year place, the people can be quite noisy and party centred, if you like it, great. if you don't - its terrible. My experience social was sh*t, and its impossible to change room so. Some people write it's dead socially, how the f*ck I dunno, there were constant parties. Sucks for me because I prefer to sleep and eat myself to a heart attack.

When I arrived the the rooms were disgustingly dirty, No cleaning is done for students, the location is ideal, but the cost of rent is not worth it in my opinion.

It is ok! Having an ensuite is the best bit!

Great place to live for location as is only 15 minutes from the train station, 10 minutes from Newcastle University and 5 minutes from nightlife and Eldon Square. However, it is not a great place for socialising.

Great location and the flats are really nice but the social scene is next to none existent, would recommend Castle leazes or Ricky over the view.

Although the view offers a brilliant location in terms of access to the city's shops and nightlife in a Very modern looking building its not without its flaws. Being privately owned comes with the burden of poor value and inexperienced staff who treat security as if you were in a prison and come into your room whenever they want. The social spaces are designed Perfectly for students but are painfully underused.

Really good location to the shops/bars/clubs etc, about 20 minutes walk from newcastle university campus. No cleaning services provided, but flats are modern and nicely decorated with a living space and kitchen for every flat

the most expensive place you can stay, but it is probably worth the money. The location couldn't be better- close to uni, China town, shops, all bars&clubs. You get a double bed & nice ensuite. The kitchen/lounge is a good size and there's a big tv. However, I needed to move out due to harassment & the manager is the most unhelpful person ever! She lied through her teeth to do anything to keep me paying to live there, saying I chose to move out to be with my friends in another place when I would have happily moved to another room in the same building which she wouldn't let me do! Be warned that as it is privately owned, it is not easy to move out & no one will move in as it so pricey. Lots of international students.
