Stayed here for a few nights while visiting Hopkins. Great atmosphere and really fun bartender! The dorms are decent with fans and it wasn't loud. The bar upstairs is a fun hangout for people staying here and for people not. Lots of fun and Loraine truly speaks truth to power :) The guy running the place (while the owners were away) was cool and very responsible. It's really close to the main road that enters Hopkins, just to the south and near several restaurants and bars. They serve food (the breakfast was good) when the kitchen is open (not all day) and coffee. I'll be staying here again when I come through...
