The place itself was bright and very friendly. They had lovely homely looking tables for students to study at and because it was in an RMIT building, it had free WI-FI. At the time of my visit, RMIT occupied that building but now they have moved to a building across the road from SAB.
On a brighter note, it is still people's favourite place to hang and get ice cream on a warm day. Oh, and they also sell big pots of tea.
