In 2010,I had to move from my house to Furnival House (Highgate) cuz I've been having family problems and I have been homeless. When I came to Furnival House, it looked like a nice campus and because I stayed at the ground floor, my room was a large room. I had 3 option rooms to choose from 2-small rooms at... More

Probably the best area in London, and that's the only positive of this place. The place is old, dirty (a mouse has been reported in a kitchen recently), smelly and you can hear everything from your neighbors. The lift hasn't been working for 4 months now, and the staff are unkind and don't seem to know what's going around ..... More

Smelly, dirty, noisy and the building itself is in a very bad condition. Would not recommend this to anyone. I am giving it one star because there is no zero.

Don't be deceived by the nicely presented rooms and facilities on the website. This place is simply disgusting. Nothing works, there is noise every night, maintenance is terrible, not friendly and certainly no helpful staff, 1 washing machine for the whole place, kitchens are a complete mess and smell weird, carpets are stained and plenty of bugs moving around. Better... More

Stayed at furnival house for 2 weeks during a work placement in Hamstead. At £28 per night it's much cheaper than most accomodation in London, but it's debatable whether it's worth it. The rooms are absolutely tiny - more like boat cabins. They only have a single bed, which means couples will need to book 2 rooms and pay double... More

The University of Westminster Halls - Furnival house is located within a 10-15 minute walk from the Archway station (take the Northern Line) in outer London. I believe the walk in rate is around 21 pounds a night for a single room. You can walk from Archway station, but its a rather steep hill. Take a bus and get off... More

I stayed for a week at Furnival House in one of the two apartments. It was your basic dorm room with it's own bathroom and kitchen. Two twin beds (single mattress cot-style and not very comfortable). Kitchen provided cutlery, plates, washing up liquid, glasses, pans, and that's about all. Located in the basement, which made it quite dark even with... More
