Le Student 8 Testimonials

Melva Lim

I came to Australia with 2 other friends to pursue a degree in RMIT. Before we came, we searched for a place to stay in Melbourne by looking into many websites and decided to entrust our stay with Le Student 8. With the photos of the rooms shown online, we knew that the quality of our stay would be pretty much guaranteed compared to houses, apartments that we scouted on real estate websites, but still only treated Le Student 8 as a place to stay with the basic amenities that we needed.

On my arrival here, I realised that this place does not just serve as a shelter for me. Le Student 8 really looks after the welfare of the students. They have a student liaison to overlook student matters and organise activities every now and then to make their students feel at home.

Although it has only been about 5 months since I came, I have seen Le Student 8 organise quite a number of events for their students and most importantly, they are entirely free! There were dinners to mark the start of the semester, to welcome new batch of students and for post exams celebration. There have been occasional free movie screenings too.

These events serve as a platform for the students from around the world to meet and I really appreciate the effort of Le Student 8 to bring their students together. The food is good and I truly enjoy the events. Other than hanging out with the people I know, I’ve made new friends too. Well done Le Student 8! Thumbs up! Looking forward to more events in the future.

Le Student 8 staff are very generous in organising regular social events for residential students we enjoy a variety of delicious food and drink while getting to know the other students at the dinner table, and then have a hit of some table tennis and 8 Ball, all free of charge! With each event comes a new and exciting cuisine so you always look forward to each month. The management are very friendly and accommodate our concerns. What a great way to have fun and make new friends!

I have been in Le Student 8 since July 2008 and been staying here since the time I have moved to Melbourne, Australia. Being an international student and never been used to staying alone did give me goose bumps of how things would be out here in Australia. My perceptions changed when I stepped in Student 8, from the staff to every member of Le Student 8 is very helpful and friendly. I have never been homesick since the last 2 years.

It is very easy to make friends and meet people in this accommodation. Rooms are a perfect fit for a student’s accommodation; each room has a TV, fridge, micro, clothes drawer and a bathroom. From a student’s perspective Student 8 is very well located; supermarkets, restaurants, tram and train stops are in walking distance. Recreational facilities available are absolutely great, there is so much to do after uni hours.

I am studying in Latrobe University Bundoora which is only 15-20 minutes away from accommodation when using the free shuttle bus. This shuttle bus is of great convenience as it not only helps me save money (almost a weekly ticket) but also runs at different times of the day, hence I am never late for classes.

Melbourne is a great place to stay; I love the people and the climate. It has so much to offer and there is something new happening every day.

I have really enjoyed my stay here in Le student 8 and would recommend it to any student looking for a accommodation in Melbourne.

When I arrived in Melbourne, I was staying in a motor inn temporarily while looking for a place of my own for a year while I complete my bachelor degree at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology (RMIT).

My mum was helping me search for suitable places to stay during my stay here and Le Student8 at Bell City was a very appealing option. After being showed around by Angeline, the student liaison, I decided that I really liked the rooms available as well as the facilities.

As I am into sports, I really treasure the gym facilities and the swimming pool.

My room has a good view and is spacious enough for storage of my luggage as well as a work table for me to complete my assignments and reports. Other facilities include a coin-operated washing machine and dryer as well as a common kitchen where I can make friends with my neighbours.

Though the rates are slightly higher than my budget, I find that it is a good investment in the long run as I already feel at home.

I lived in Le Student 8 for about 2 years and had an awesome time. During my stay, I have made tons of new friends, not only from Australia but also from around the world that would be my friends for life.

The facilities that are offered there met my needs as a student, such as the business centre for studying, the gym for the daily workout and also the recreation room for socializing.

I also found that the free shuttle bus service was practical as it stopped right at the universities doorstep.

Throughout my stay, there were also activities organized just for the students such as a basketball tournament and a BBQ by the poolside. It was a great way to meet new students and also to have fun.

I was fortunate enough to become a long-term resident and guest of your hotel on the 27th on November 2007 and have a residency contract until 31st December 2008, at which time is my intention to renew this agreement for a further twelve months.

I am currently a mature-aged Doctoral student at Victoria University in Melbourne and this study I hope to complete within three years. Its is important for me while devoting my time and attention to acquiring knowledge that I live in an environment which is conductive to study and where I can feel safe, secure and have privacy. Since November 2007 I have had the ability to achieve this.

At any time even without study load, I feel security and privacy is important. It has been a joy to be treated with the greatest of respect, care, compassion, empathy and where guests are regarded as important. Your employees have attended as soon as possible to any issues needing attention and I believe your method and style of management is exceptional with everyone taking that extra step to assist.

If anyone wished to stay at your hotel for one night or more, I would have no hesitation giving recognition of merit and can assure all prospective guests that they will receive the very best attention from the time they step into the reception area.

I would be extremely happy to allow you to make visible, exhibit or produce this accolade to anyone wishing to receive information regarding the hotel and cannot thank you enough for the activities that you and the employees of your organisation are engaged in to ensure everyone have a happy and peaceful environment in which the stay. I would be delighted if you could pass on my comments to your staff so that they feel encouraged and know that they are appreciated.
