    Hi,

    I will be moving to london in september. Trying to finalise an accomodation. Have a good offer from yarastudents accommodation.

    The URL is http://www.yarastudents.com/Accommod...llandPark.aspx

    Does anyone have any first hand information/experience of this accomodation or the management team. I understand that the holland park property is going to start this september.

    Regards,
    Dinker

    The studios are quite large compared to the ones in the busiest areas of London... but the management team is quite inefficient (from personal experience, their service quality is low). What do you think? Did you actually rent a room there after all?

    Hello. Agree with your comments here. My experience was also similar. I was negotiating over the phone/email since I am not in London. I even sent the holding deposit of £250, but later I was told that the price quoted was incorrect and I would have to pay an additional £40pw for the studio.
    When I sought clarifications on the contract the reply was unexpected. Infact, the tone was that I should not be asking too many questions.
    I have been assured that the holding deposit will be returned. I have of course decided not to take up a studio there.

    I cancelled by application as well. Hopefully I'll get the deposit back (I cancelled within 7 days of paying the deposit) but the manager doesn't appear very trustworthy.

    In any case, we did well

    Please do not think twice about living at Yara....
    Of course, if you are looking to have no privacy(because of the unprofessional and intrusive house masters) and not being able to sleep at night because of a bunch of drunk teenage so called "students " running around in the corridors laughing and making noises...PARTYING literally EVERY NIGHT until 5 A.M.

    Seriously! I complained about this to the management team but they did NOTHING for a whole YEAR.
