Storthes Hall is just like any other student accomodation. There are problems with it, nothing is perfect but it's only a year and it is worth the chipped walls, bus journey, bad decor, a tincy bit mouldy bathroom for the amazing friends you make. With storthes hall it's very much what you make of it. If you go in trying to make friends with everyone, talking to anyone and not being to OCD about the general hygeine and small incoveniences of the place it's the best place to be. You can get cheaper, cleaner rooms which are near the uni but you won't get the full student experience. The snow fights and barbeques and being able to walk next door to a friend at anytime at night is worth a bit of shabby accomodation. Everything is fixed really quickly when it goes wrong and it's really not too bad living in storthes. You probably won't even spend much time in your room anyway. Some people do get bagged with bad flat mates - small time drug dealers are normally the worst ones because sometimes they just dont care, the flat will smell of weed and some flat mates arent teh cleanest or most social but most likely, if you're not too picky you'll find someone you like in your flat and if you deal with people from the start then relationships don't become bad. It's just all what you make of it- it can be terrible or brilliant depending what kind of person you are, but i wouldntreccomend it to the unsocial types.
