      Places to eat; Brass Monkey. It's a bit expensive for 1 room, but everything I included which is great. Room/facilities; no complaints/good. The common room with the pool and table tennis table, when I have friends over is good. Nice and private, but friendly enough. Security; No complaints. I feel very safe.

      Eating places; Royal Oak, Morattis. Price broadly in line with other properties. Room standard and facilities are very good compared to good proportion of Edinburgh Uni Postgrad Accommodation. Only one common room. Atmosphere good among my group of friends; 8 or so nationalities and 6 disciplines. Difficult to say re the whole hall, but obviously that Anna and Phillip are valued by everyone I speak to. They have been excellent all year. Safety/Security is excellent.

      Eat at Holyrood 9a. The kitchen is connected with room which is inconvenient. Tend to hang out in our rooms.

      ... to princes street, Holyrood park, it is very convenient. Favourite places to eat/drink near here; Holyrood 9A, the cafes of Grassmarket. Good value for money. I think admin-wise it seem better here because my friends in other student accommodation complain about theirs. I really like my room, it is ensuite and a decent size. I can keep all my things here with no problems, plenty of storage space. I go to the Brass Monkey every Wednesday for the pub quiz win. I also hang out by Grassmarket. Sometimes, it is really fun here because everyone is friendly. I am able to host people in the communal space in my flat and the building communal space is accessible to all. No security issues.

      ... centre attractions. Favourite places to eat/drink near here; Oink (on the Royal Mile), Pancho Villas. I believe the facilities and amenities are very sophisticated and functional. However, I believe that the studios (which was my style of accommodation) are way too tiny for the price. The studio apartment does not offer the best space and value for money. I would say that room and facilities were all modern and worked properly. However, the room was too tiny. I use the laundry area the most as I have a studio and do not need a communal kitchen or living space. I see posters and announcements of community events, however, I feel separated and a bit isolated sometimes because I live in a studio and am not compelled to interact with other neighbours. I see my neighbours only when there is a fire alarm and we have to assemble at the muster point. I feel like once one misses the opportunity to interact with other residents during fresher's week, it is almost impossible to do so while living in a studio. I will rate the property an 8/10 for one simple reason; the back gates were sometimes left open and unattended during maintenance work and it was rather uncomfortable to walk by and see that anyone could have gotten into the premises. Also, while the automatic doors are cool and convenient, they swing open slowly and swing closed slowly. This mean that, by the time I've walked away, the door has still not closed and anyone can come right behind me. I wish I had realised how small and compact the residences were, especially the studio in which I live.
