Liked: Not much to like, very small and basic basement apartment with one shower/toilet for at least 8 persons. Though the shower was in good condition once I got in...

Disliked: Funky little basement apartment with bunk beds in a few rooms and a common kitchen. Nothing fancy here. Though the staff was absent when I checked in I did meet the manager in the morning to settle my bill after another guest kindly let me into the building. Very friendly management, I just caught them away as most flights arrive to Fairbanks after midnight.
