It was extreamly lovely BUT (and its quite a big but) the 2 loo's flushing loo's are Uni sex and smell of boystoilets wee. Of the 2, one was blocked nearly all the time, the other some of the time (when some person tried to flush a whole entire loo roll WHY?) they were cleaned and stocked daily though.
The composting loo's smelt 10 times worse (seriously unpleasant)
As for the showers so long as you are the only person on the whole site using the showers they are hot, other wise alternate between boiling / freezing. Not to mention the fact that there is no where private to get dressed which wouldnt matter so much if the door didnt open right infront of the showers, so as soon as the door is open anyone walking past can see you. Not quite so bad for the men, though any girls going into their block can look through the window to view them naked too!
Other wise longthorns is simply idealiic and the owners are lovely. The honesty shop and communal fridge freezer are just great and the whole armosphere has the most pleasant happy and relaxed atmosphere.
