Location is good; its close to Queen Mary, Stepney Green Tube Station, ASDA is round the corner and there is a small Sainsburys next door and a larger one ten minutes away. The daily cleaning is a great as well. But those are the only benefits. Firstly, for the price you pay the rooms are tiny (do not believe the picture on the qmul website, that is a picture of the larger room which you have no choice in selecting, its false advertising . Secondly There are no social spaces such as a living room in any of the flats, just a table and two benches, neither is there any communal spaces in their whole of the accommodation block, I suppose there is a bench outside. Thirdly, the noise ridiculous. I lived on the side facing Globe Road, as the windows are not double glazed, and its a busy road, you hear loud traffic and general city noises 24/7. I my room, you either had to put up with it being too warm or too loud. In my opinion, avoid this accommodation.
If you are unlucky enough to have a room facing Globe Road be prepared for sleepless nights or invest in some good ear plugs. The road noise is unbearable, the single glazed windows let every sound through, you might as well be standing on the street its so loud, and studying with the window open is impossible. This is London so the stream of cars never ends, neither do the ambulance sirens, idiots revving their engines, and other idiots leaning on their car horns, oh and there are buses constantly too! The rooms are an okay size and in half decent condition, the same can't be said for the bathrooms and kitchen. The kitchen had not been cleaned properly when we moved in, there was old rotting food left in the fridge, cabinet doors were hanging off and the front of a draw had fallen off. Overall the kitchen is in very poor condition, even for student halls. The bathrooms all have mold problems, one of the toilets was leaking and the walls are filthily. Avoid.
