"International Guest House is spacious, but still feels cozy. It’s like you’re living in your own house. Having on-site dining means I don’t have to worry about making breakfast or dinner, and the daily cleaning service is a real benefit. I feel both comfortable and safe here."

"The food at IGH is very good. I can’t eat pork, so the chef helps me by altering some of the dishes. They serve a wide range of cuisines, so I feel satisfied every day with salads, soups, meats and vegetables. I don’t have to worry about breakfast and dinner and I can meet other students in the dining room!"
