“Constant Robberies from rooms”
Reviewed 29 April 2010

I was there for a couple of months. Firstly, the management really dont care about the majority of the clients. Secondly, it is very unsafe. I had some random male enter my dorm one night much to the shock of my bunk mate. This is the same night 3 other rooms got robbed. Turned out the same key opened about 4 different rooms! The other rooms were constantly robbed and in-room safes broken into with tools. One of my friends was even asleep inside his room when he saw someone trying to prize open the locked swing doors to the room with a crowbar !!!!! Staying here is not worth the risk of havingyour belongings stolen.
