Fair2.0 / 5
Would not stay there again
Lots of sloppy, loud, rude young people who didn't pick up after themselves. Floors in common rooms very dirty. Elevator dirty.

Poor1.0 / 5
Unclean and far from all
Couples making out in our rooms and people with flu in our rooms.

Fair2.0 / 5
Cheap and friendly but not clean and tidy.
They hardly clean the room. More over in shared rooms there is hardly any privacy as I see couples making out with no consideration to others and sometimes people in the shared rooms have flu and is likely they we will get it from them too.

dorm room was full of anti social long term tradies. so it was only worth having a snooze and socialising elsewhere. shower doors were broken but good water pressure/ hot water
