Most helpful review

I lived here for 2 years - the only good thing is the proximity of the halls to the university and central London spots. Otherwise: It is so noisey! Traffic all night, early morning delivery trucks slamming things around at 4 am (as we share a garage with the youth hostel next door). The place is bookended by pubs. Hot water is out about once a month, fire alarms happening constantly, office is only open 08:30-17:30 Mon-Fri and you can't get your post outside these times, WiFi is abismal (although in their defence this is a UCL-wide deficiency). Kitchens vary massively in size even though the same number of people share the space. Smoking outside our windows is not controlled so it stinks! Plus security has been a huge issue with homeless people wandering in, sleeping in the common room, knocking on rooms etc. I could go on but you get the picture. Go private halls!

Dirty, dank, poor showers, smells stale throughout. Kitchens are wiped down but still sticky and greasy. Common room is a disaster. Good location but pub noise and early morning keg switches.
