UBC dorm experience
3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed May 25, 2012
Rooms in the Nicola building are very basic as one would expect in a dorm. My daughter and I took 2 single rooms with a shared bathroom which was OK. Wonder how it would work if I didn't know the other person. Single room rate of around $50 was OK for one person, but they made us take 2 rooms for $89 which is getting close to what a hotel (with phone, TV, pool, breakfast etc.) would charge.
The toilet had a brown ring and shower head sprayed everywhere. The heater in the room worked well but was very noisy. I would recommend ear plugs if you want to sleep.

So, perhaps good value for 1 person but not for 2.

Because all the other hotels were busy we got to experience this campus. It's rooms are for only one person each but you can book two connected with bathroom. It is very affordable, has cafe on premises and wending machines in the building. The rooms are clean and for a short of period of time is fine.
