Even though it's not the most spacious or luxurious place to live, the location is absolutely amazing and makes it all worth it. A quick walk to school and everything you could need. Would choose it again.

Great location close to all attractions in London. However, it is the most expensive hall at LSE and the rooms are very small. On top of that there is constant construction noise, even during exam time which is very disturbing. Wifi also breaks down a lot.

Was just terrible, too many postgraduate students and such a horrible social atmosphere. The effort from the hall committee to organise fun socials was appalling, barely used the bar at all and the people there were not fun. They had a cafeteria that was never used, a completely wasted facility for a place we paid through or nose for. Location is the ONLY good thing about this place because there aren’t even en suite toilets. I don’t recommend for first years who want to have fun.

Very nice accommodation, albeit expensive. Location is extremely useful but not as social as many other accommodations provided by the university.

GREAT location and very friendly staff. I moved in when there is a big refurbishment going on the 4th floor and I live on the 5th, but surprisingly everything is clean and noise is bearable. The refurbished rooms are hotel quality. Social life is blah because it is a big hall after all. But it doesn't bother me. However, wifi has been a problem. Connection is so poor I almost have to disconnect and reconnect every other hour.
