Liked: We liked the common rooms. It is a good place to meet people. We liked having our pwn cuttlery and dishes and also the kitchen had everything you need to cook. The toilets were renovated and very clean.

Disliked: We didn't like the fact that people can smoke where others are eating. There isn't a dining room so everybody eats outside on the bid benches and people don't care if you are eating, hey smoke right next to you. Those tables were dirty too
