About Kristian

Hallbookers.co.uk, founded in 2013, is the UK’s trusted student accommodation review website which helps thousands of students find the perfect accommodation by using reviews from other students.

As students ourselves, we experienced having to find student accommodation by using the hall providers’ marketing material and realised it was a very difficult task to differentiate the best from worst. We wanted to make it easier & safer for students to find the perfect accommodation. Therefore, we created a platform that allows students to provide help, advice and support to other students looking for accommodation.
