It took them over a MONTH to clear out a wasp nest next to our bathroom window, which we couldn't shut. 10 people living with 1 shower was quite a squeeze. Very poor communication with halls management, their maintenance line is always busy and will just spring replacement charges out of nowhere, even when the item they were replacing was broken anyway. You're about 5 minutes from the main Endcliffe area so you're a little more secluded, but there are some shops nearby. The internet is fast, though at some point rodents did chew through the cables, knocking out the wifi in half the building. Kitchen size was fine, but no living room, just a dining room consisting on one large table. Overall, quite disappointing.
This is a review of a 10 person flat in Crewe. Your room sizes may vary depending on the number of people in your flat. + Location is closer to main University of Sheffield campus than Endcliffe and Ranmoor by about 5 minutes + Close to several supermarkets + Internet is VERY fast, especially if you use an ethernet cable + Cleaners are excellent, they come every 2 weeks and do all communal corridors, bathrooms and kitchen areas. - No real social space, we just had a kitchen and a room with a table big enough for the 10 of us. Got cramped if anyone came over - WASPS! At the start of the year there was a wasp nest in one of the external vents. This vent was right next to the 2nd floor bathroom window which we couldn't close. We had to share 1 shower between 10 It took WEEKS for this to be sorted due to "a backlog of cases" - Everything in the flat seems to break. Heating went out for couple of days, hot water as well. One time the fridges died and we lost all of our food.
Amazing room size. Shared bathrooms which may put some off but is honestly allot nicer than an ensuite due mainly to there nit being a toilet in your bedroom. Temperature control was not good with some rooms being very cold and others unbareably warm at times. The type of people it seems to attract are amasing, with a relaxed very friendly atmosphere. The social space was a little uncomfortable (cheap plastic chairs) although it was very large and offered plenty of room for party's.
Beautiful surroundings. Lots of green spaces. Across road from the Botanical Gardens. Older hall, so bar and social space has gone, but the flats are huge and there are loads of gardens, a table tennis table and regular-sized tennis courts. There are also great facilities a short walk away at Endcliffe Village (The Edge). Close enough to Uni as well as Broomhill/Eccleshall Road shops and bars.
I think that I like the Crewe Flats from all the flats I've been to! The rooms are massive compared to all the other Ranmoor/Endcliffe accomodations and so is the kitchen (to be fair, we do have one of the biggest kitchens in Crewe). It is quite close to uni and the Broomhill shops. It's not completely part of the Endcliffe village though. I personally love it a lot, because we also have a garden and everything! I think it's also the cheapest accomodation and our cleaner is the loveliest.
Crewe has HUGE bedrooms, it is a okay, it is in flats of 10, no social space only the kitchen. Smells a tiny bit, not in Endcliffe Village entirely, it is accross the road or so, closer to university I suppose. Old building, nice gardens though.
No social spaces! The kitchens were too small and horrible for the ten people in my flat to sit and chat. It was also way too expensive considering everything broke at one point or another, single glazing windows and a broken security box which beeped non stop throughout the year.
