I got conditional offers for computer science course from Goldsmiths and Birkbeck and I am not sure which one of them should I choose... Any advices? I also got unconditional offers from Middlesex and Westminster, by the way.

The biggest difference is that virtually all lectures and seminars at Birkbeck take place in the evening, so you're free to do whatever you like in the day (internships, work, sleep etc). The student body at Birkbeck tends to be older and there are a lot of part-time students, so if you want the standard student experience then Brikbeck may not be the place for you. That said, UCL and SOAS are right next door and you're free to live with and socialise with their students if you want to.

There may also be differences in terms of module options (check the module lists, they can usually be found on the department webpage).

Thank you for your answer! I'll check the modules again like you suggested but I think Goldsmiths would be better for me.. I am aware of lectures taking place in the evening, it would be actually quite good for me, since I have to work during the course. But I can also work part-time along with the course at Goldsmiths, as far as I know.
