This place is up a steep hill but that gives it an amazing view. It's close to everything you need and easy to find (i arrived on foot in the dark and have a terrible sense of direction and still found it!) The staff were really helpful and friendly. The only down side is that it can be noisy - that's just the set-up, anyone used to living in a multi-story place would be fine with the noise of feet, radio and voices upstairs, I am used to space and quiet. I would recommend this place though :)
