south towers and north are basically the same, but south towers are a bit cheaper because you share your bathroom with more people. People who lived in south towers will tell you that south towers are the best.. people who lived in north towers will tell you north towers rule (which they do). Most people on here have lived in north towers (it seems) so we're biased towards them.
I lived in Eddington Tower in my first year, never really went to Bertrand Russell but the towers in general are an excellent way to meet people and party your way through the year
And I can confirm that Room 1 (my room in my first year) is right next to the kitchen, as is Room 16. It's great because you can (as I did) leave your door wide open in the first week or so, so that the 7 people who live further down the hall are always passing, makes socialising a lot easier
Only real complaint is that if you plan to sleep early, I found I could hear people in the kitchen fairly well. Not so good around revision time :\
