Featured review

Half of the complex is refurbished and value for money, the other half is old, broken and outdated but everyone still pays £95 a week. It's home now but I was disappointed when I moved in, had to have quite a few things fixed/replaced straight away; if it wasn't for the fact that my housemates are now my best friends, I would have hated living here. Everyone's really nice though and the location is pretty much the best you're going to get for Sheffield. The staff are nice, Rob the receptionist is lovely and Dave the security man has been a highlight on many nights out. The flat's are supposed to be cleaned by a cleaner every two weeks but for the first 7 months we had the laziest male cleaner in the world, NEVER cleaned anything but the nice lady who has *hopefully* replaced him and received a pay rise works incredibly hard, your kitchen will be squeaky clean if she's on the case. Overall, probably wouldn't change it for the world but I'm very much looking forward to moving out!

very good location near the city centre but no social spaces to meet other people. Close to both Hallam campus and rooms are average size. Kitchens needs to be a lot bigger

Daughter victimised by anti Semitic graffiti however although against the law the management did absolutely nothing! It states 24 hour security but when you ring in case of an emergency you can wait hours. Although meant to be secure doors with card access you can bypass this easily and get in by jiggling the door! Filthy place. Wouldn't keep a dog in them. Rooms outdated and small with mould in bathrooms. Kitchen tiny, faulty appliances and very poor decor. We had to give a good clean before unpacking but even then you can't shift tears of mould and grime. If you stay make sure you take photos at check in as tried charging us for existing damage. Laundry never worked and no common areas. Smelly damp and dirty!

This is the worst accommodation ever, go to Fenton House next door. If someone who was manky lived in your room last year, then your tiny shower will be full of mould that won't come off, and an overall disgusting bathroom. (Cleaners don't clean it at end of year) Rooms are pretty small and cleaners don't 'clean' much. Kitchen is old and outdated, so are the bedrooms, and if you're paying upwards of £101 a week (it's going up next year) you at least expect something decent, but Unite students just take your money and give you a bog hole to live in. When I moved in the kitchen hadn't been given a good clean like I would expect with new tenants coming at the beginning of the year, again, mould in cupboards, sticky booze stains over the walls, stained curtain hanging by a thread and the most disgusting fridge I've ever seen, 2cm of yellow slime at the bottom. The wifi is also awful. On an upside, the courtyard is a good way to make friends at Freshers and the location is sound.

I was bullied out of my flat and no action was taken to stop the bullying. the way the manage things is unreasonable. the kitten in tiny there is not eunf room for everyone. the washing mashies don't work and ruin your cloths. the room is tiny, the single beds and smaller than a single and are uncountable. defiantly live somewhere else. the only good thing about it is the area Victoria halls and Fenton house are much better options,

Rooms and en suites all good and suitable but kitchens to small and no common room to socialise in. Wifi poor and been down a few times but overall good for flat parties and night life.

Great location and a great price, just the lack of communal areas that you get in other properties is a let down.

Great for socialising but not very well equipped, had no sofa for example. Very little freezer space. However met loads of great people and the location couldn't be better!

Good sized rooms, all en suite, we have the smallest kitchen ever for 5 of us though, and not enough chairs for us all to sit around in the lounge together.
