You really are paying for the location more than anything else.

One of my windows is broken, meaning I can't open it without the entire panel popping out of place.

When the boiler for my room broke, it took a month before the staff stopped just pressing the reset button and called someone to actually look at it. This meant I spent a month with almost no hot water in my shower in the middle of winter.

The launderette is tiny and the dryers rarely work on woolen clothes, meaning you have to either pay another £2.30 to dry it again, or hang it in front of the little heater in your room.

There are three hoovers that you can borrow from the reception when you need to clean your room, but at least one of them is usually broken and all were apparently stolen (by the students living here) at some point.





Another big issue: ants.

I initially complained about them in November, nothing happened. I complained again recently (March). They say they've called Rentokill, but it's been two weeks and I'm still using dettol as ant repellent.

I'm pretty sure they're living in the walls, and coming out through holes in my desk.



They're renovating all the rooms, so hopefully this issue will go away next year, but with the room prices going up with the new improvements, the rent here is still pretty ridiculous.



Most of the staff are friendly, but seriously, only rent here if you're desperate to be opposite City University and don't mind seeing ants crawling over your stuff.

First of all I had the smallest room of the building , in the bathroom it was smelling cold cigarette when I moved in and it still smells the same ! Secondly they were doing some works on the roof but I only knew that when I entered my room there were a paper on the ground . But that s not a problem they put you on the last floor so you are sure that you can hear all the noise. The kitchen.... I don t really know where to start , they show you nice pictures from the other building , but when you enter the kitchen , first it is 40*c because there is no window. It smells Chinese food in the whole building again because of the same reason. They are suppose to clean the kitchen 3 times a week , I don t know where it happens , when I moved in my closet was sticky and full of dirt. The fridge , the floor is sticky and full of dirt. There were a leak with the tap instead of fixing it they just putted some duck tape are you serious? So don t go there it is the worst accomodation you could get for that price and it is not cheap!!!

I am really happy with my choice of student housing! The room/studio was even a bit bigger than I thought and even though the bathroom is extremely small, I really enjoy living here! What I find a bit sad is that we do not have a common room to actually meet other people but that's alright because we could still go to Liberty Living St. John Street and use their room. The management is really friendly and they are very courteous. In case anything in my room needs fixing I just report it to the reception and it is usually done the next day.

Also it is really nice to always have someone at the reception to collect parcels and to have security during the night. I really feel very comfortable and safe here.

The location is great as well as it is in zone 1 and two buses stop right in front of the house. It only takes me about 10 mimutes by foot to the station Angel on the Northern line or to Barbican in the other direction.

I've had a terrible experience with Liberty, i'm currently still looking for dorms for this year because I tried to avoid rebooking here as much as possible. My room was on the ground floor and I wasnt informed about this until I actually arrived. Not only that, my window opened onto the rubbish bins of the entire dorm, so i'd wake up everytime someone threw away their rubbish or when the rubbish was collected each morning. The bathrooms are so incredibly small that you could shower, brush your teeth and pee all at once, literally. Its practically an airplane bathroom. The main door to the building where I was staying was broken 85% of the time, so literally anyone could walk into my building after getting through the main gate...I didnt feel safe at all. And on top of all that, the security isnt always there at night, not entirely sure where he wanders off too. However, the receptionist was incredibly friendly and the location was convenient.
