Lots of cozy and nice common areas but I really didn’t see many people there so no atmosphere to comment on. Staff were fine enough in my 1 interaction with them, but the office never seemed to be open. They had specific posted hours and in the 8 or so times I walked by during open times, only once was someone there. And they were closing the office to leave anyway! I didn’t need anything, but it goes against the posted hours thing.
