P R O S: expensive but really spacious compared to other more expensive halls. 3-bed flat has 2 toilets. convenient location near city centre. st nicholas market, tesco express, uwe city campus (arnolfini, spike island, bower ashton), temple meads station all nearby. lovely receptionist joana. microwave, kettle, toaster, hoover all available. cleaning once a fortnight. C O N S: unite students management was slow with tenancy agreement, lots of issues when applying. limited bike storage (you can lock your bike outside). no lift. no social spaces other than reception and laundry room. washer £3.00, dryer £1.50, you'll have to use them via circuit laundry app which is a NIGHTMARE. could hear if people having flat parties.

Quite expensive but the location makes it worth it, being so close to the city centre was a real plus for me. Room was a decent size but the price I was paying you would expect it to be ensuite.

TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR ROOM BEFORE YOU MOVE IN the place is flimsy so remember to take pictures before you move so they don't try to charge for these damages before you move out. Staff are nice when they are there a lot of the times they are not, you usually have to phone the number downstairs if you want to collect a parcel. Rooms are spacious and is close to Marketgate if you do not want to live there but still want the same social experience also not as detrimental to your mental health marketgate.

Transom is the cheapest accommodation so don't expect the Ritz, but it is close to the centre and the rooms are well sized

Really friendly people both staff and students. Great city centre location, near to the train station. There's no common room which isn't an issue.
