    Hey everyone, new users here. Would anyone currently living here or who has lived here tell me what it's like(try to be unbiased)?
    i.e. what are the rooms, the kitchens, toilet facilities, people etc. like?
    Is it worth moving in if i have other accommodation that's 20 minutes further away?

    Thanks for any replies.

    I currently live there and I can honestly say that it has exceeded my expectations. The rooms are quite small but I like to think of them as 'cosy' rather than cramped. The walls were freshly pained before we arrived and new kitchens were fitted and include a fairly big TV (the TV license is also included in the price). The ensuite is also a great plus and the location might not be quite up there with Stamford Street if you're located at the Strand but the tube station is only a 5 minute walk away. My 6 flatmates are all really friendly and we go out together, but do be warned that this hasn't been the case for a lot of the other people I've talked to. The washing machines are also a good price and the common room's good for a bit of socialising. One big downpoint is that the kitchen inspections are ridiculously strict and the cleaning service is majorly hyped-up e.g. it doesn't exist. But other than those two thing, I'd highly reccomend it!
