Liked: Absolutely great breakfast! I didn't expect it in an accomodation like that. A great choice of cold and hot meals, very tasty and fresh prepared, even with fair trade coffee/tea/rice and free range eggs!

Disliked: It's no dislike from me because I knew it before: But you have to be aware that it's a students' home and a big canteen.

Liked: The security is AMAZING!!! I also liked having my own room so I could repack before leaving.

Disliked: It was a little loud, with all the young Americans running around for the festival, but it's a dorm room, so it's to be expected.
