Saxon is pretty cool. They are set up as two dorm rooms connected by a living room and private bathroom. I would have loved to live there when I attended UCLA. My friends did and we always "got ready" to go out at Saxon.
I'm going to be in Hedrick and people say it sucks to be there (I'm not sure if it's because of the suites or the walk) but I feel that it depends on you personally rather than where you live whether you enjoy the experience or not. :)
Rieber is home to themed-community housing on campus (such as the Afrikan-Diaspora floor and Sustainable Living). As one of UCLA's older halls, it does lack in air-conditioning (something that De Neve has), but is still equipped with the basics. It's a classic residence hall, so it is very much alive compared to Saxon or Hitch, which are suites. Overall, Rieber can tend to look a little older in terms of furniture and such, but is a nice place overall to live, located towards the top of the Residential "Hill", and with a decently large population of students.

On UCLA's "Hill," students can opt for one of two scenarios: enjoying the sardine lifestyle while making friends with fellow sardines, or savoring a spacious existence while meeting virtually nobody. The residence halls are undergoing a renovation process, which means some are brand-new while others are horrendously outdated and ridiculously over-inhabited (but are on the list to be renovated). Whatever the case, these halls offer the quintessential freshman dorm experience—floor-wide hangout sessions are the norm and lifelong friends are made often. Freshmen bond over complaints of crowding and communal bathrooms, making for an experience that's almost a rite of passage at UCLA. On the flip side, suite buildings and complexes deliver the promises their higher price tags bring. These options offer more serene lifestyles, with private bathrooms in all units and living rooms with a table and couch in some, but due to the apartment-like nature of these choices, social interaction is scarce.
Regardless of the housing system's shortcomings, students do enjoy living at UCLA and can typically find something to suit their lifestyle preference. All dorms, no matter how crowded, are clean and sanitary with some form of lounge, and dining halls are very close by. In about half of the buildings, wireless Internet access is available in individual rooms, while the rest feature reliable wireless in the lounges.
