6/10 Good

It’s a dormitory. It’s clean. And the cost is low.
This is a dorm. It’s clean and spacious. Staff are friendly. Cost is reasonable. Check in instructions aren’t super clear. But it was also loud all night long one night with a lively party upstairs and no staff in the building to complain to about the noise overnight. And super hot another night because of a heat wave and the building doesn’t have AC. Wouldn’t chose this place again on return to Halifax.

2/10 Poor

Not worth the savings
Dated, not very clean, uncomfortable mattress, pillow and sofas. Towels worn thin. No hot water on day 2 and front desk was just like ‘yeah sorry’.

4/10 Fair

The room was advertised as having ‘water views’ but did not. It had a view of a parking lot and another building. The staff made no effort to rectify/resolve the situation. I found mouse droppings and garbage in the room, and the area wasn’t very walkable.

10/10 Exceptional

Very quiet and comfortable, with friendly and helpful staff. Perfect setup for families – fully furnished four bedrooms (twin bed in each) with TV/living room, oven range, microwave, and linens. Fully stocked kitchen, though I recommend adding a microwave-safe plate or bowl. Location is great for exploring the city and day trips.

10/10 Exceptional

Super clean and confortable. Note no AC but wasn’t a thing for us as it was weather was pretty cool. We had an apartment with 4 bedrooms (singles), sitting/dining area, full kitchen and 2 full bathrooms! Price was cheaper than a hotel room with only a bed! No restaurants/cafes on campus but some within walking distance. Note steep climb back to dorms though! I’ll definitely be back!
