Most helpful review

The room is satisfactory and staff are helpful and friendly. Yet the lift button has been out of order since I moved in. Only two stoves out of four in the kitchen are working effectively and the WiFi is not stable.

Student Review: 1.1 /5
By member957620 On 12th May 21

Strongly recommend using a different housing. The value for money is quite low, even compared to London standards. Access to all facilities during the whole year was restricted due to Covid, despite that, room pricing remained the same. Multiple cases of theft have been reported just outside of the entrance gate, yet no safety provisions were made.

I strongly advise you to look elsewhere and to not consider Sidney Webb. It is true that the place was refurbished relatively recently, but the people in charge really could not care less about the tenants. We had a hole in the kitchen ceiling with water dripping down onto an electrical outlet, and it took 6 months for them to even begin getting it fixed, after we quite literally had to chase them around. When they got around to doing something, they only put some spackling paste over it, gave it a new paint job and called it a day without actually fixing the leak. I don't envy the people who will take over my flat next year when that starts molding and cracking. The year after I lived there, they promptly proceeded to raise the price by £40/month. I'll let you draw your own conclusion based on that.

Bit expensive for its location, cleaning limited to the kitchen. Socials are OK with people in the same flat as you are. The internet, however, is completely unstable - if you're doing a video interview/chat, or play online games, it's not usable.

place is absolutely terrible. Internet works off and on, the laundry room often doesn't and staff does nothing about it, also laundry costs a lot of money. There is mold in rooms, the bathroom is a shower and a toilet together so when you shower the entire bathroom floods with water, and almost every students heater didn't work so they were forced to spend even more money and get their own. I've had a number of maintenance issues and have asked numerous times to get help but nothing changes. This place is the worst place to live in and the fact that LSE recommends it is appalling.

Coming from South Africa I had imagine London Accommodation to something out of this world. Sidney Webb House provide to be a disaster of a place to stay. From complacent staff to appalling living standards, you will experience blocked drains, broken and leaking toilets, malfunctioning laundry machines, poor internet and more mold than is legal in an apartment building. This place has truly been forgotten and left to house the poor students who find themselves in this hell.
