3/5 Okay

Being on the UBC campus was wonderful. Close to beaches, walks and museum. Staff were not informative. Took 1 hour 45 mins to check in because of a lack of clarity in the parking location and room keys not working. Then told I had to be out by the usual 11am check out and not be late.

Well located, clean and quiet. Staff helpful and friendly. This is a student residence with all the essentials but few extras. Rooms are not air conditioned which can be an issue in hot weather.
