Most helpful review

If you are lucky enough to get good housemates, then it's a pretty decent place to stay. It's got easy access to town and across the road from the bus stop to uni. The flats are pretty modern, but the seats in the kitchen /common room area are the most uncomfortable things ever!

A terrible place to live in. Very loud music and very obnoxious people. They won't let you sleep until 4 am, and security does nothing to put an end to this. If you want to party 24/7 and have alcoholic and drug addicts around you, this is your place. If not, avoid this place.

Basically, the most shabby rundown accommodation out of the lot I've seen, but the centre of everything you'll want as a student in Bournemouth with the best atmosphere.

It is in the perfect location to go into town and right by a bus stop for uni but for the price of it the accommodation itself is very basic and now particularly nice.

Lovly space to stay, although this is the building for all the party's. You can often hear music coming for other rooms in the halls around you at 3 in the morning!

Best halls in Bournemouth or closeness to night life and bus routes. But the company behind it, Unite will bleed you dry of any money you have. Be weary when you move in and take photos of everything. But apart from that it will be the best experience of your life!

staff are poor and try every trick in the book to get money off of you, a girl in my flat broke one stool which were very old anyway and on there way out and we got charged £32 for that single stool! Also over Christmas we forgot to take the bins out and got charged £40 for this, although the location is unbelievable being waking distance from all nightclubs, pubs, beaches and so close to other uni halls as well so all of your mates are very close! Socially amazing, but unfortunately I believe you'd get ripped off at the majority of university halls you will move into nowadays

the halls was great fun having everything in walking distance, excellent value for money however it was always quite a mess, but what do you expect for students who are constantly going out? Town and the beach are close and the coop and Asda are a minute walk away, Bournemouth has excellent hall accommodation which are all on the bus routes which makes first year such a doss!
