Being the cheapest accommodation in Endcliffe I suppose I can't complain too much, it's in a great spot and we were lucky enough to have a balcony. But otherwise, almost every flat I've spoken to has had problems with the showers and toilets, maintenance seem to be reluctant to sort out these problems most times, which didn't help. We have large kitchens but no common space or anywhere to sit apart from at the table, which was sometimes (most times) a nuisance. But in my opinion, it is one of the nicest places to live, we have stunning views and decent sized rooms compared to some of the other buildings.
Its cheaper than all the other accommodation in Endcliffe but you get what you pay for. The block is just not quite as modern and flash as the rest of the student village. Socially its good and its convenient for taxis/deliveries. The rooms and kitchen are plenty big enough, though there is no wifi in the kitchen which is the only social area you have. The walls are also very thin. Also, I think a lot of the flats are full of gap-year students so it depends on what type of crowd you wanna be around
Location loses a star as it is fairly close to the road, but being surrounded by trees gives it an almost country feel. Hall management was poor, the year I lived there we were stuck with a bunch of weed smokers who insisted on smoking inside rather than the balcony. No one likes stinking of weed and nothing of substance was done, an ignored warning isn't sufficient. Cleaning on the whole was good, however if you end up living with filthy housemates the cleaners will draw the line and refuse to enter. Social space was limited to the kitchen, however, these halls have their own private wash room, so no queueing at the general accommodation ones. Social experience has very few stars to to the stoners, but I was unlucky. It's a good location if you want to be picked up by taxi to go into town, there is a bus stop outside which picks up regular to get into the city centre and its close to the accommodation hub which hosts numerous nights for fresher's
Apart from my lovely flatmates, I hated living here. It was extremely loud every night and security did nothing, even when called/emailed a few nights in a row. If you're doing a course with a lot of 9am starts, I strongly recommend finding somewhere else.
