Apartment is in a great location downtown, close to UT campus, close to I35, close to restaurants and bars both downtown and on the east side.
The Muse at SoCo Review
Good Location - Terrible Management
Volume 4 Review
Good and cheap
Small apartment that is cheap and far from campus. Centrally located in south Austin near south Congress
Definitely worth the price
The apartment is nice and small (just about 400 sq. ft.) which is great because it means there's less area to clean and it keeps stuff organized. I would definitely say this place is worth the rent. All the appliances work great. My only complaint is that the walls are kind of thin so I can hear neighbors, and there are TONS of dogs in the surrounding neighborhood and owners are not good at keeping them from barking. This is especially an issue on the weekends when trying to study (note this review is being written during COVID so there are few options to study outside of the house). Other than noise issues, I've had no other problems. The apartment is a bit dark, but that might be because my unit has shade cover (an advantage during the summer to be sure). The maintenance team, it is worth mentioning, is especially good.
Stella is a good place to live. I have never felt unsafe, and the apartments are reasonably nice. They are expensive, but affordable compared to other comparable apartments in the area. They are pet friendly but it will definitely cost you. Can’t find much better anywhere else, though. No carpet is a nice touch, but these floors scratch so easily. Maintenance is quick and very efficient. Also very friendly. Can’t really complain. A lot of families live here, and also a good amount of students from what I can tell. If you’re looking for somewhere that is safe (reasonably) and not obscenely overpriced, Stella is for you.
Pretty good value!
For the price I've been pretty happy with the experience! The buildings are a little older, but the location is nice and central and the area feels safe.
Pretty Good Apartment
Only issue has been a few car break ins.
Decent housing in good location
I like Muse. The neighbors are mindful, there are a lot of students from different schools in the area, and management communicates things well. I have had no real issues and think it is a nice place to live during school. It is very dog friendly, and they do not have pet restrictions for those who might have larger dogs that need some loving as well.
Great Studio for the Price
So far my experience has been great. I pay about $930 a month which includes some utilities as well as rent (electricity/internet are not included in this). The maintenance team is really prompt when I do have issues. There is a direct bus line to the law school, broader UT campus, and downtown. The area is safe and full of restaurants and coffee shops.
More affordable with roommates
This complex has every amenity you could need - internet lounge, gym, conference room, food trucks, etc., but the BEST part (especially for future APPEs) is the shuttle service to the med center. It is a free service for residents, and it means you won't have to pay to park at the med center. Additionally, my commute to school is relatively always free of traffic. It takes me roughly 12 min to get to campus.
This apartment is a little more affordable than others nearby, but I do work every week.
Stella at The Medical Center Review
Great safe place to live on a budget, close to the TMC
Living at Stella
The process of obtaining and signing a lease was pretty seamless. The only issue we had there was having to sign the lease agreement multiple times after mistakes in the lease were caught by the leasing agent.
Management is quick to respond to complaints and willing to work through any disagreements/issues. Unfortunately, maintenance requests are not always fulfilled in a timely manner.
Amenities (study room, pool, workout room) are great!
Overall, I feel safe on the property and that is a huge plus.
Good price/quality balance
I like that it is close to school and doesn't cost too much. Complex has a pool, gym, and study/work area. Staff have always been friendly and helpful when I talked to them. I don't like that all the grills by the pool are not gas lit and require charcoal, parking fills up at certain times meaning you have to park further from your building, and there are a few fees that you aren't aware of until you view the lease to sign.
5/5 especially if you are a U of H student
The building is fairly new with great amenities: gym, pool area with BBQ, conference room, and computer lab. Rooms have high ceiling with wood floors in the main room and carpet in the bedrooms. Appliances are new and A/C control is very responsive. Floor layout is very spacious with even the closets being large walk ins. For internet, you can get AT&T high speed fiber.
Management staff are fantastic and extremely helpful. Some kind of community event is always being put on. The Building is well maintained and maintenance issues are resolved very quickly. You can feel safe returning late at night since the property and parking are well lit with secure access with a resident Houston Police officer patrols the complex. Finding a parking spot is not difficult.
Overall, I would give this place a 5/5, especially if you someone who is looking for spacious rooms with new appliances, responsive staff, an active social scene, a well maintained building with nice amenities, and a secure building especially if you return late at night.
