Hey, I was in BLC last year and enjoyed living there. The flats are quite big and I had a MASSIVE room cuz it was en suite. Even the normal rooms are big though compared to other halls. I feel for anyone on the top floor this year though, as last year it was def a pain to drag myself up the stairs after a night out!!
BLC is on the edge of the red light district, but as long as you go out and come back in groups its not really an issue. It's nice to be so close to west street, saves on taxi money/having to walk miles in heels and it is so close to uni and the city.
Good luck to everyone moving in n enjoy ur yr at BLC, I did!
