    I lived in a 19 bedroom house last year that was advertised as 'private halls'. I hated living in university halls in my first year; mainly due to the **** heads coming in 2-3am every morning then shouting and playing music, and the state of the kitchen and bathrooms. However my house last year was mainly finalists and post-grads, and due to the location it was also mainly engineering students; it was a far more enjoyable experience. There weren't really any cliques, though a few people had decided to move there together so understandable they were already friends. Most people kept themselves to themselves but chatted in the kitchen etc. So it was friendly but not like university halls where people are spending every hour in each others rooms or going out in massive groups getting trashed every night.

    Edit: I'm moving back there next year since I found it easier to get work done when I wasn't living with people I was close friends with. (My reason for going there last year was that I decided to retake a year instead of going on placement, so all my mates were on placement and it seemed like the best last minute option)

    2nd edit: It wasn't really that homely since there was no communal area except for the kitchen, but that might be different with your house. Also we had a cleaner for all the communal areas, if you haven't I could expect that to be a problem.

    There better be several kitchens...

    That would probably be really loud as well, depending on what kind of people live there.
