We have a limited number of single rooms reserved, a 5 minute walk away. They are basic and functional, a kitchen with a fridge on each floor, and the showers are communal, one on each floor. Breakfast is in the dining room, and there are communal areas to socialise.
A single room costs £66 per person per night inc breakfast and VAT. Minimum 2 night-stay. (50% deposit required to secure your place).
BSF 2023 review from a dancer:
'The student hall accommodation is exactly what you expect from student hall accommodation - basic and functional. It's worth noting that the showers are in a communal block at the end of the corridor (i.e. the rooms do not have showers en-suite) and the beds are a bit on the small side but as long as you accept the dorms for what they are then they are a good low cost option for a single room, and just a 5 minute walk away from the dance venue'.
Clifton Village is a 5 minute walk away and is home to fabulous cafes, bars, restaurants and grocery stores. Bristol City Centre is a 15 minute walk away.
