I really enjoyed my time here and I know many other that did so too. I am really happy with the location, staff and common room. Mihai especially was a great staff member and I hope he stays there for next year.

Since staying here starting last September, the Sidney Webb experience has been nothing short of perfect. The staff have been friendly yet professional, the facilities have been functional and reliable, and the all round aura has been safe and warm. I want to give a special thank you to Grigor, who no matter he time of day, is always on top form both professionally and personally. Good job Sidney webb!

It’s quite an expensive accommodation, but Sidney Webb is a very safe, comfortable and clean place to stay. There appears to be lot of maintenance issues reported in the building, but I personally haven’t experienced any first hand. Reception staff are extremely effective, friendly and helpful - especially Grigor and Rollo. This creates a really nice atmosphere, hence my overwhelmingly positive review.

The location of Sidney Webb is by far its biggest asset. Bus connections to campus and other parts of West- and East-London make your time in London really enjoyable and comfortable. However, when it comes to the accommodation itself, it must be said that the maintenance of the building is unacceptable and unworthy. Although Sidney Webb is one of the cheaper accomodations, 8000+ pounds for a 40 week contract is still a lot of money. The least one could expect in return is (i) a lift that actually works, or is repaired within a reasonable timeframe, (ii) a roof that is watertight, and (iii) functioning showers and heating. All these elements have not been self-evident at all. I hope the property managers, Unite Students and all the others who are responsible have learned several lessons from these bad practices. To end with a positive note: the receptionist Gregor is amazing. Kind, welcoming, and never loses his patience. He is always ready to help and understanding for everyone.

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.
