I recently booked a studio with Unite Students but now I'm considering cancelling due to bad reviews. Do staff really walk into rooms unannounced, for example???

Not from my direct experience, nor anything reported in the chat for my block. Always emailed up front giving notice for checks, repairs, inspections etc. But Unite is a huge national company, and local situations may depend on local staff attitudes.

Never had that happen when I lived there. Don't think staff ever even entered the flat except when there was a fire alarm in the flat (never happened in our flat, amazingly since one of my flatmates used to forget to turn the stove off after using it all the time), we had requested they do maintenance, during a flat inspection (which by law they have to give written notice of at least 24h in advance) or if someone had locked themselves out and they were being let in (this happened to me a lot lol).

I wouldn't say it was the best experience of my life as a renter but it certainly wasn't the worst As above though it might vary from property to property, city to city.

There is an issue with the staff walking in unannounced at the unite flats I'm in , including one where a Residence Ambassador (who don't have references taken up and shouldn't be doing jobs which involve entering flats) had let themselves in, particularly alarmed at this as they didn't even have uniform or staff ID. Maintenance and reception staff have let themselves into the flat unaanounced at least twice a week since I moved in at the start of August. I've asked the site manager and reception staff for notification of visits but they've so far ignored my emails. Avoid Unite at all costs is my advice!
