I've been looking at Senghennydd Court for my first choice but all I here is about Talybont.. is there a lot of difference? My other options would be Gordan hall or Aberconway Hall.

Can anyone give me any info, if there's any that you recommend/don't recommend?

I lived in Senghennydd Court last year and I had a fantastic time. It's by far the best value. It's more basic than the Talybont halls but a lot cheaper. The rooms in Senghennydd Court are slightly bigger than in Talybont because they aren't en-suite. I know people who lived in Talybont and went there quite a lot. The social life in Senghennydd is no worse than in Talybont and it is so much closer to the town centre that you never need to take taxis there or back from a night out (5 mins walk to the main club strip with Glam, Oceana, Tiger Tiger etc. and around 12 mins walk to Walkabout and Bunker and others in that area - around twice as close as Talybont). So to sum up, social life is as good in both Talybont and Sengenydd Court, Senghennydd court is closer but cheaper, but Talybont is more nicely furnished and more spacious in the comunal areas i.e. the kitchen. If I were you I would choose Senghennydd but this depends on your budget and whether you mind about en-suites and taxis. Hope this helps.

senghenydd court is cardiff's best kept secret in terms of accom. people applying from college initially think taly is the be all and end all because of how many students there are all in one place and how they're told that it is "social" (everywhere's social, it's undergrad university ffs), but they quickly find out that seng is the don. literally 2 minutes to the city centre as opposed to taly's 30 minutes.

I'm living in Gordon Hall at the moment, and I can tell you it's probably one of the best halls in Cardiff ever. It isn't so popular because it's a small hall of only 90 people in total, but what's nice about it is that all floors are open to each other and basically you get to know all 90 people in it, whereas in Senghenydd, there are flats of 5 people and a lot of friends I've made there say that it's very hard to socialise with people from other flats. Gordon Hall is also very close to the city center and main building/student union, but it's quite a walk to further schools like Cardiff business school. It also has an evening meal option which makes it very convenient. The rooms were just refurnished/renovated in 2013 and so it's very clean and new, and the ensuite is great size with enough space between shower and toilet. The room is quite spacious for a dorm room as well. Gordon Hall does have 10 shared bathroom rooms on the top floor though, so make sure to choose ensuite if you pick it
