Most helpful review

The m*****f***ing fire alarm will drive you so insane, that dying in an actual fire quickly would be a better alternative to dying a bit inside slowly every day. If you like sleep, and not being tempted to rip the God damn alarms from the roof with the closest blunt object, then don't waste a penny on this place. Unfortunately, I didn't have much choice in the matter.

Q&A


Q
Is it reaaly as bad as these reviews say?
By member1140913 On 31st July 19
I don't think so! There are enough washing machines if you go during weekday evenings rather than weekends, and kitchen cleaning is up to the residents so that's not the halls' fault. Idk obviously it's not perfect but for the price it's really better than I was expecting. It has less issues than many of my friends' accommodation too.

I'm paying around £200 p/w to live in surrey house annexe. There are rats and black mold in the kitchen, broken lights and mirrors. The fire alarms don't work properly and go off sporadically. All of this has been reported and nothing has been fixed it a month into living here.

It sucks that other reviewers had a bad time here, as I'm living here at the moment and really enjoying it! There's a character limit so I'll be brief lol. It's five minutes walk from uni, and many transport links, so you don't have to get up early for lectures, although there are a fair amount of emergency sirens every day as it's on a main road. The people on the front desk are really kind, and there's someone there all day if you need any help. Maintenance complaints are generally fixed within 48 hours. However, I'm in the Main House and there are issues with black mould in rooms on the corners, which management are slow to act on. It seems to be a structural issue. Walls are thin but people are usually considerate and I just put headphones in. The cleaners always do a great job. There's a common room and study space, and regular halls events. Only trouble I've had with the wifi is the odd bit of buffering. I chose this halls because it was the cheapest, but I'm happy that I did!

If you love cold water, dirty water, thin walls, 1960s builds, poor security, lack of washing machines, single glazing, unreliable wifi, infestations, filthy kitchens and 24/7 noise then this is the place for you
