Wellmount Accomodation in Athlone

Last February I wrote a post about Wellmount Student Village, I tried to explain there my point of view of the place.
Right now I just received the deposit back and I wanted to explain again my point of view of the situation because I think it may interest some erasmus students who are looking for accommodation in Athlone (Ireland).
After being in wellmount for 9 months I just received the amount of 101 € of deposit, some of my friends have received a little bit more and some a little bit less, and even some of them haven't received any amount yet from the deposit.
To receive that amount of money was a nightmare, and it was a nightmare because I sent to the manager like 5 emails and I didn't receive any answer so then I tried calling them and after calling like 3 or 4 times they lie to me a couple of times, like:
"Don't worry Manuel, tomorrow we will make the deposit so in two days you will receive the money."
And it is frustrating when you heard that a couple of times and then they don't send you the money back.
And finally the last point is that because they during the whole year don't show you any legal electric bills, you don't really know how much electricity you are spending and at the end they just give you the deposit back but they don't show you any break down of all the invoices, so I don't really trust how honest they are.

Conclusion, I don't recommend staying in Wellmount in Athlone, there are better places for better prices closer to the AIT Campus.

Because there are good things in Athlone, here I show you some pics:
