Most helpful review

window views here are really nice. has a study room and a common room. everyone goes there. everyone hangs out in smoking area just outside common room and everyone is v friendly. rooms in main building are massive even though its shared bathrooms. not worth paying for ensuite cause bathrooms are only shared with like 3 ppl. Surrey house don't provide toilet roll tho even though they said they would. most maintenence issues are resolved fast, though report them on the online system, not through reception cause the reception people are not good and most of them literally just watch youtube all the time. Every time u go down there theyre watching youtube and get arsey with you when you ask them to do something cause youre taking away from their pewdiepie vid. other than that place is great and would really reccomend.

A lot of the negative reviews are around personal experiences, so I would like to give an unbiased review with a bit of my personal experience haha! I was in this accomodation in my first year of Goldsmiths, and I loved it! I got lucky with a good flat, but even if I didn't vibe with them, unlike many of the other Goldsmiths accomodations there is a massive social space where it's easy to mingle and make friends. The accomodation is less than five minutes walk from the campus, less than fifteen from a massive sainsburys, close to the station (new cross gate) and also only ten-ish minutes from the GP surgery and the other train station (new cross). The staff and security guards here are lovely- treat them with respect and they'll treat you with respect too (a lot of people came in drunk and acted like arses so I felt quite bad for them a lot of the time). The laundry is very convenient, but of course since it's student laundry it's expensive lol. Overall, great experience :)

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.

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
