Liked: It is in a good location, though it can be loud at night because of the neighborhood.

Disliked: The lockers are very small and it gives little place to store valuables. No one stole anything and in general the place seemed safe, however.

Liked: We were only going to stay for one night, stayed for five! Very welcoming place, friendly and helpful staff who really want to look after you and it feels like a home away from home - fairly communal (it may help if you've lived in student halls before). There are some great cafes and bars nearby too and a half hour walk to the White House. Close to supermarket as well. And free breakfast (what's not to like about pb&j?!)

Disliked: You can hear the club that's downstairs but you get used to that and the air conditioning is pretty loud so it's best to turn it off overnight..
