I had the pleasure of staying at the Wayfaring buckeye...in terms of location its great if your scene is hitting the college bars. The hospitality was great, also fantastic facilities! The WiFi was top notch as well.

That's a perfect setting for a porch in a sunny day. I would have join him, if I hadn't had a friend with me. The hostel is perfect place to stay: you have everything... More
