This is a very nice place! The common room and kitchen are great, many windows, lots of light... in this dark winter weather, I appreciate! Very well located, close to the waterfront, into the art district. Cafes, restaurants nearby, as well as a grocery store at about 10 min walk. If I come back to Nanaimo I will stay here again!

After I popped by the school to visit Sandra and Nancy. It was so great to see them. You don't realize how ...

Not only is it heavy, but it pulls your backwards throwing off your balance. If ...

Despite the snow we were lucky to make great time to the airport (thanks Dianne) and they put us on an earlier flight to Vancouver. We were now scheduled to leave at 3:00 instead of 5:00. 3:00 ended up being 4:00 as they combined three flights onto one. Then another delay to plow the runway and de-ice the plane. Finally we get ...
