I think Crombie/Johnston halls are about as good as it gets when it comes to location. The evening meals aren't that bad, but breakfast is a joke IMO, basically no protein but a whole lot of carbs, and the exact same choices everyday. If they put a little more effort into breakfast it me worth the money. I have a lot of issues with plumbing. Rarely hot water in the showers, and not good pressure. Also heard of flooding in some places. My room had broken doors and shelves, and gets rather cold since the heater doesn't do much. The place needs some renovation but the cleaning staff do a good job. Staff overall are very nice and try to create a pleasant atmosphere. There are social rooms with pool tables and two big TVs with lots of DVD choices, which is nice if you want a place to hang out. Despite these things I think the quality of the rooms, facilities, and food don't make it worth the money.

While these halls may be a bit on the pricey side, they give you campus based accommodation, breakfast and dinner included, and it's so easy to socialise and meet people!
