  • Disliked: Cleanliness, property conditions & facilities
Not going back there.

The place is worn down and half of the place is rented out to the government to be used as a place for social cases. A woman was assaulted while I was staying there and the police came and took report. There were old bottles and dirt under my bed and some of the residents made med feel unsecure. I'm not going back.
