Really love my studio space, the view I get and the facilities in this Accomodation. Very rarely do you get a gym, constant amazing hospitality from staff and clean space in one student accom, but Westbar has it all. Simon is literally the best property manager! Always ready to help and listen to any issues you have. Highly recommend! My stay here so far has made me consider doing a PhD, so I can live here again!

In a nutshell: Awsome managers Reasonable price Great position If you're looking for a place to sleep during your term, I'd totally recommend Westbar House! A bit more in detail, now. I stayed here for a year and a couple of lockdowns. It's not always been easy: these places are designed to sleep in, not to "live in" for most of your day. But with the easing of the restrictions, it became much more enjoyable. I can't praise enough the managing staff. Both Christian and Simon have been incredibly friendly, helpful and patient. You just need to ask and they'll sort most of the accommodation issues in no time. Not much to say about the room. The furniture is standard Ikea, but it does the job. There's less storage space than it looks due to the bins and the sink stealing some cupboard space. Just grab a few plastic drawers from Wilko (they cost about 7£ each) and you'll be ok. It's still student accommodation, though, so expect some loud music and slamming doors occasionally ruining

The location of the property the facilities and the management is top!! I rent a studio with a beautiful balcony and we also have a gym that I like to use as it very convenient and included in the price. My favourite feature of the property is the roof terrace where I enjoy to drink my coffee in those sunny days and socialize. Lastly , the property manager Mr Simon is the best as he is always helpful and really taking care of this property standards. He is also very friendly and makes my day a bit nicer every time I see him in the reception.

Have had a great first experience of Sheffield with Westbar house, thanks to a friendly property manager making life at home very comfortable, particularly with the strain of the covid lockdown. Always ready to help whatever the query, have never had a issue which could not be fixed with ease. Highly recommend

Westbar House is a very good student accommodation and its just a short distance from Sheffield Hallam Uni and the property is very neat, quiet with state of the art facilities. The property is managed very well with the help of the property manager. He’s ever ready to help with whatever issues you might be having. Simon has a solution to everything!!!.. He’s our ‘Mr fix it’ and is the highlight of our stay at Westbar House.

As people very easily tend to write negatives reviews, I just wanted to leave evidence of positive feedbacks, specifically about a member of the staff working at WestBar House, Simon the property manager, he is always there for any question, enquiry or need that any of us (the students might need. At the same time, and in relation with the actual situation, Simon helped us by communicating with higher position of the company on behalf of us ( one thing that I very much appreciate). Also he knew how to understand us and find a solution that was convenient for everyone. Lastly to say that there is no day that he does not receive you with a smile and happy face, one thing that makes anyone’s day. I hope all these helps to considerate more those ones who are in the front of the line dealing with all the issues that comes with this period.

Westbar house building is my accommodation. I like the price of my studio and it is cozy enough for my lifestyle. It would have been nice to have multiple places to choose from that are near the city center and not only Westbar house since it is a bit far from the university of Sheffield. The staff is lovely and Mr.Simon is nice. I like everything in the building but would prefer if we had more socials (COVID or not).
