WiFi extenders, are they worth it?

So I recently moved in with a couple of friends, and I’m having troubles connecting to the WiFi. Being that the router is on the opposite side of the apt I understand why. It’s not my internet so I have no say on whether or not to upgrade which I think we already have the best service available in our area. That being said have any of you guys had experience with WiFi extenders and if so are they worth it?

They are if you're only needing 1 to reach where your trying to cover. 

I'd recommend a triband extender as apartments tend to have a lot of 2.4ghz signals that create interference. So the tribands 5ghz backhaul will make it more stable.
