I would definitely recommend JD to everyone. It is a great value hall with a brilliant social life. The addition of common rooms last year meant we had a dedicated space to hang out and watch Netflix on the big TV. Being catered is great! The selection of food varies every night and the menus are always changing. The shared bathroom is not as bad as it sounds as it is cleaned daily (by our lovely cleaner) and I've never had to wait for a shower as we have 4 of them, as well as a bath. It's convenient living in the main building as you only have to walk downstairs for food, as well as the shop and Starbucks. The rooms are not as modern as others on campus but they are really homely and look great once you have pictures and posters up. They are large rooms as well, with plenty of storage space. The kitchen is quite basic but has everything you need in it, and is not usually busy due to most people eating downstairs. I have loved my time there!
Wasn't as bad as I first thought it would be. It's great value for money considering you get food included. Sharing showers wasn't an issue for me as there was rarely anyone in the shower block when I was in there. No common room but sitting out in the corridor with beanbags and cushions was good enough.
