Quality of rooms - 1.5 Fun/Atmosphere - 2 Location - 5
Safety - 1.5 Management - 0.5 Value - 1.5

The place has a really good location but there are many problems that you will experience when living there, for instance, the staff is unhelpful and rude and the common areas are constantly dirty and there seems to be no motivation to clean them. Also, when I first moved into my room it was not clean and after complaining there was no attempt on fixing the room. Additionally, the tv never works, hot water is constantly going off and the door for entering the blocks, which is supposed to be a security issue is always broke.



I would not recommend this place at all, it is too expensive for the quality it offers, for the prices they have here you might as well move somewhere else

I ended in a cluster with dirty flatmates, had to clean everything and when I left I was charged for the dirt in the kitchen. did not let me change room when I insisted for it.

Students party a lot the night and You hear eveything when your window is on the side of the courtyard. If it's i-on the side of the street you hear everything form the bar right in front of the residence. Really anoying when you need to sleep or to work.

Room with a lot of broken things : the bed have been poorly repaired before I came, the television didn't work and it took them 2 month to change the batterie of the remote (yes, that was the problem of the television). and staff can come whenever they want of they want to repair "something".

Happy I left !!

Poor Managment

3

Quality of rooms - 4.5 Fun/Atmosphere - 3 Location - 5
Safety - 4 Management - 0.5 Value - 2

I stayed here when it was under Student Castle and the management was great and everything was very organized.



Under Liberty Plaza, we have had cold showers for atleast 10 times this year. We would have no hot water during the weekends as they couldn't find an engineer. There are hundreds of students here who all have to suffer and hope that there will be hot water when they shower at night. The staff are snobby, once they fix it they think they have done us all a favour. The truth they should invest money into fixing the problem as they have already been saving money on running less student events.



The biggest issue here is how the staff and management have dealt with the issue and especially how it has happened constantly throughout the year.



The staff here are quiet rude and they don't understand that we are customers.

Times where I wanted to get a parcel and the female staff replied "I can't be you are asking me to check because you haven't received a confirmation email from Liberty plaza that a parcel has arrived" "I can't be getting out of my chair to check a parcel all the time"



Really is she doing me a favour? This has caused me Significant time and energy hassling staff down for hot water, my package, and room repairs that I would not be staying here for another year . It is at a good location and rooms are a good size, but the stress caused is not worth the money.

Quality of rooms - 2.5 Fun/Atmosphere - 2.5 Location - 2
Safety - 1 Management - 0.5 Value - 1.5

Expensive/price is high



Good location



Room is small



Disrespectful and dishonest management - they say one thing but can easily steal and throw away your belongings from your room when you leave it



There aren't any repercussions for tenants to follow to take serious responsibility of the management's actions



Things always require maintenance/fixing - facilities alway fall apart, and when you get them fixed either they're not fixed or the staff insist they are fixed but they're actually not



Poor noise control in courtyard + late night music



Trash and litter left by people in common areas but no reinforcement of rules



Hot water supply was cut off for a month - not hot water for shower EVERY NIGHT and there was no choice as no one came to fix until the next morning

I knew student castle from my friend and she said she really enjoyed here, not only that its strategically located but you get the best value. The cheapest studio is more spacious than other student accommodations. I've seen that when somethings wrong the maintenance is really quick to fix it and they make a lot of funny parties for halloween/valentine's day.

Tom and Paul are the best security guards in the world. I normally have bodyguards in Rome but these two are way better than them. Terrry is alright as well.

The courtyard is very clean and I really like the atmosphere, which is safe and easy going.

Ellie (the girl @ the reception in the morning) is very nice as well, and so is Nina.

Although expensive compared to other living solutions in the area. Student castle offers a pretty veiled safe environment to live in. The location is great. The rooms are small but only if compared to flats. Among student accommodation. Its probably one of the best around if not the best.

Student Castle is amazing, always clean and beautifully designed. When I first came to view it my family couldn't believe it was for students, saying it looks more like a luxury hotel!
The building has all the facilities you could need: a 24hr gym, dance studio, music rooms and really nice socializing spaces. The rooms have been excellently designed to provide maximum storage space.
And it is in a great area, just a short walk up to Shoreditch, many restaurants and coffee shops with in a couple minutes walking distance, a Sainsbury right below it, and a short walk down to the Tower of London with more restaurants and a view of the river!

Truth about safety and security

Most people leaving here don't know about how unsecure this place is and how disrespectful and dishonest the management is. The accommodation can easily steal and throw away your belongings from your room when you leave it for a long time and then pretend being fools and don't take any serious responsibility of their actions.

I would not recommend this place to anyone who cares about their belongings and safety. For the high price you will pay leaving here, you have a high risk of become a victim of security guys and managers and will receive nothing afterwards.

It's very expensive to live here and hardly anything is up to scratch. Even when you try to get them fixed either they're not fixed or they say they are, when they're not. Staff are sometimes rude but mostly they're pretty good at what they do. The environment here is pretty tense, in that although the staff have tried to get people to come together it's still awkward if you bump into people you don't know. Quite a lot of the people that actually live here are rude and disrespectful especially when it comes to late night music, sharing lifts and sometimes holding doors open!

Student Castle is an ideal place to come to when you’re new to a city such as London. When I first cam to London, it all seemed very overwhelming at fist. My family lives abroad which meant I had to “Stand on my own to feet”. Student Castle helped me settle into the city because it provides me with security and any help from the management if need by.

Having arrived in London my priority was to come to a place I can consider home and Student Castle helped me feel that way right from the start. It is a place to easily socialize and meet nationalities from all over the world. Student Castle is where you want to be!
