The girl who was working the front desk for afternoon into the evening shift was amazing. Free wifi is really important. The plumbing seems inconsistent as I heard other people say their shower's temperature was uncontrollable and mine was as well. My roommates said it worked for them, hence the plumbing is inconsistent. A real door to the shower section would be great so you can shower after "lights out"...the shower lights up the whole room (I had to skip the shower). Need an elevator.
