Good service. It would have been helpful to have the small shop open for sundries like tea and other drinks when one arrives without any food. Poor signage to find the hostel which required a lot of walking to find it.

I had a great time staying there. Save-on foods, and a 24 hours mcdonalds and a+w meant that my needs were well-met the day I decided not to leave campus and stay close. Overall, I have no complaints, especially given the low price.
