I was planning on going through UltimateOz for my 12 months in Australia, but reading some recent reviews, they seem to only be negative. Has anyone recently used UltimateOz and can confirm they haven't gone down hill? The 2013 reviews are all 5* but it's the more recent ones that are saying how useless they are.
The main reason I want the UltimateOz one is because they apparently help you find an apartment with other people which I really want to do, I don't really want to be alone for the 12 months that I'm out there! Does anyone have any experience of sharing an apartment with people in Sydney?
I've also looked at BUNAC and they seem really tempting just for the group flight where they stop in Hong Kong and will give me the chance to meet new people and possibly travel or live with them.
Could anyone give me some advice or their own experiences with these companies? Thanks
