    Property condition


    • Liked: Property conditions & facilities
    • Disliked: Cleanliness, amenities

    The facilities were obviously very old, there were other patrons shouting very loudly well after midnight, the communal fridges looked very unclean and smelled like off food. Additionally, the elevator wasn't very efficient and took ages to move one floor, the other patrons wouldn't handover the use of the TV to anyone else. The bathrooms had no racks or shelves to place toiletries or clothes, and the bed was extraordinarily squeaky. As well as other roommates sleeping all day long, preventing adequate lighting and a sense of unwelcomeness.
