Located on west street it's right in the city centre, personally I love being in the hustle and bustle of it all, but obviously it's going to have its downsides of the busy road and the drunk people at night. The rooms are of a reasonable size, only a chest of drawers for storage, no shelves but there is a desk. I have had multiple leaks in my room, which when complained they were quick to fix it. Wifi is great, no one was expecting it when we got here because it wasn't on the website. We have been without hot water for 3 days which was not good in the slightest. Kitchens are big and have a tv, not enough storage space as I have to keep all my food in my room. 10 or 17 people to a flat, which is good as you can make loads of friends but bad also as you might just hate everyone and make friends with people in other flats instead. With 54 people in the flats, it's not many but you're still able to make a tight group of friends.

I lived here in first year in 2011. As previous reviewed show pictures were misleading. It is great for social life as always somebody around with the corridors. Maintenance was rubbish, boiler broken for 3 weeks before they were aware. 17 people sharing 3 working showers. However allowed me to make some amazing memories and friends

The landlords never sort anything out for you. The appliances are all mostly broken. The showers are cold and don't heat up well. The rooms are freezing all the time because the radiators never come on. The carpets in all the rooms are disgusting. The wash room floods regularly and breaks down - which they never take seriously and fix quickly. People smoke in the kitchens regularly and the landlords do nothing.

Imagine a world not to different from our own. A world of cold water, shared bathrooms, badly painted walls and none stop noise from the busy street below. Imagine, Cavendish House. Now you might be put off by the dingy rooms, or the barely functioning kitchen appliances; but please consider these points! Yes, it's three flights of stairs to the top floor! Yes, you have to walk down a slippery fire escape and into the back yard of a pub to empty your bin! Yes, you might have to wait twenty minutes for the showers to reach tempretures which don't give veterans of the Winter War (Finland, 1939-40) PTSD flashbacks. The kitchen lights obey no logic and light when they fancy! Yes, it's all a bit soviet! But you live above the cavendish, where coffee and freefills are 99p. The wick at both ends, where absinthe flows like the leaky tap in 2A. Carver street is basically next door. It's so awful to think about you and your flatmates will drink to drown it out. 9/10, would suffer again.

Stayed there during first year. It's a value for money place. For those who are looking for a place to crash at night and not bother about aesthetical bit of it, it's an ideal place. Close to Hallam and Uni of, loads of bars and clubs nearby and Tesco Metro just across the road. Cheap and cheerful, although you can hear everything through the walls, which makes it sometimes annoying place to be.

Bit of a dump with limited decoration. The pictures on the Sheffield Hallam accommodation website are misleading and display false advertising as there is no corner sofa in the kitchen/living area. Location is the only appealing feature as it is close to everything a student needs.
