The halls are not too close to university, around 20 mins walk. No shuttles available which means you should either walk or take a taxi on rainy days. Maclay is quite pricey compared to private flats on byres road which are much closer to uni. Facilities are good , fast wifi but sometimes goes down. En-suite Room is large enough. The common kitchen is not too bad (stove and microwave kind of old but function properly). Overall , the halls are good for meeting people and making friends but you can find cheaper places.
