There wasn't much of an atmosphere when I lived there, it was pretty quiet. Then again I did share my flat with a grand total of two people. The lift broke a lot too - what fun it was having to lug everything down 4 flights of stairs when I was moving out.
Though sometimes Hayes Wharf like some of the others has to deal with the overflow of the Student Village. I got some facts and figures that 1200 students applied for halls this year and we only have 990 rooms
oh yes the excessive damage bills... £5 per bin bag they have to take down?! as if! luckily they dont have my new house address so they cant harrass me for any money, I refuse to pay god knows how much for a workstop that there was the smallest little ink stain on, plus i lost the shower cutain in the bathroom, oops! and no there isnt much of an atmosphere, only ever spoke to one person who didnt live in my flat at hayes wharf the whole year!
i changed it for a prettier one... and then when it came to packing up and leaving i couldnt find that damn shower curtain anywhere!.. I also lost a trainer as well, I think there's a thief at hayes wharf!
oh no its a good location really, right opposite nibbles, 2 minute walk from bars, 5 minutes from town... but it certainly aint party central at hayes wharf.. the lady who's the manager there is really nice though
