7 Snowdon Hall Reviews
I have been a resident at Snowdon Hall for almost 2 years now. The residents have been great, meeting new people especially foreign students. Please disregard the negative reviews below. I cannot stress enough how pleasant the staff have been since moving to this accommodation. The security staff are very welcoming and approachable, you can even have a laugh with them. Any problems regarding your room or common room is fixed promptly by the resident handyman who is also a great laugh and very sociable. Staying here has been a great experience and i will certainly be staying here again next year.
I lived at Snowdon hall for my first year at uni and my first real experience of living on my own. The social side of things was cosmic meeting new people and in genuinely joking laughing atmosphere! I find the security to be one of the best things about the halls unlike the previous reviews I can assure you they are not all bouncers and they are genuinely nice people who made this experience a lot easier and welcoming for a new student. They are very helpful if your ever in a situation of assistance and always there to help! The maintenance and cleaning staff I found also to be very welcoming and very quick to rectify any problems you may have with your room! The previous review I found very unfair on these sets of individuals. You must remember it is what you make it and it can be great if you try to socialise and meet with people of different cultures and backgrounds I found this the best experience. We have had some issues with the management but never with other staff members.
I had a great stay here... The staff are brilliant, always willing to that extra mile to help. Managed to a very high standard. Great value for money, rooms are bigger than the university and much cheaper. Would definitely recommend.
Please, for the love of s**t, do not waste your time here! This accommodation yes, is cheap and in the town centre. This however brings issues in that most of the population living here are from overseas. Some speak English well, others are very arrogant and just glare at you when you speak to them. Most of the community (like most others) enjoy a drink and a dance, sesh, whatever. This means that if you're unfortunate enough to book a room facing the busy nightlife street, then God help you when you have a test in the morning. It's just disgusting.. I'm glad I managed to move rooms. What was said below about the management corruption and security is true, I've seen some fairly juvenile situations outside my window at night and don't even get me started on the fact you'll get fined up to hundreds of for practically breathing here. The beds are also as hard as concrete, internet's average, cheap but socially and physically a Prison in every sense of the expression. Easy 0/10
My experience at Snowdon Hall was awful. For a start, the owner was extremely rude, and instantly made me feel like i was trespassing on their property. When i arrived to collect my key, I was greeted with a passive aggressive comment from the manager due to my arrival being late (Even though i had called 2 days prior to my original arrival date) however that was not the only issue concerning the staff. Several member of the security team are bouncers at local nightclubs, though i had no issue with this, it certainly made me feel like an outsider. There was no sense of community either. Maybe this was due to the fact that there was nowhere to socialize with the other flatmates on your floor, unless you count the kitchen or smoking area. As well as that, the walls are paper thin, and any noise from outside will be heard. I would go on about the faults of the accommodation, but there is a word limit. Just take it from me, its really not worth it.
Snowdon Hall was a bad place to stay.Bed bug infested and an awful manager. My experience their was not good. Even though I was one of the British students, the manager use to have her favorites and they had preferential treatment. Also any problems you had would usually fall on deaf ears unless of course you were the chosen few. The Security staff happened to be doorlads from the local nightclubs and a bunch of cowboys.... Don't go there unless you want to be covered in spots from bedbugs and get blamed for bringing them to the hole. The walls are paper thin and the doors constantly slam from the door closure mechanism...
