I stayed here for 3 nights, and had a great time. The location being on the upper end of Long Street is great, since you can get to the bars and restaurants on Long by just walking, and can escape Long pretty easily as well if you want to visit other areas. The staff is always available for any of your needs; i never had to wait for anything or chase anyone down. For the price, i cant imagine you could do much better.

For some reason people kept putting dishes away in the kitchen at 5 AM?

staff are awesome, very friendly & helpful all the time. I stayed in a private room so can't speak of dorms, but the kitchen is really big & fully equipped, the patio outside is awesome, & there's a sitting area for eating/socializing while cooking, as well as a TV area with couch. it's right near the party street, so everything is close & walking distance. would recommend
