I stayed only one night. Arrived by car so can't comment on public transportation but parking was good & felt safe. Being in the park there were few others around. Historic house is nice. Dorm holds about 14 beds, a bit too many but luckily there were only 3 ladies there at the time. The mattress could use replacing, is way too thin. People were friendly, the kitchen was nice & clean, a couple restaurants deliver so didn't need to go out.

Nice to have a place where staff made me feel welcome, lots of common space, and room space. The bed was not comfortable with a thin mattress. Parking is super easy. With a car, it's not hard to get to at all. It's nice and quiet.

Night lights should be installed outside in the parking area. I went to my car after dark without a flashlight and walked into a knee-high, 18-inch tree stump. It was so dark that I had to feel of it to determine what I had hit. The office manager was very helpful, providing hydrogen peroxide and bandages.

I think this place was great in the fact that it was clean & quiet. I have a car so distance wasn't really a problem for me, but I can see where location would hinder others without a car. I didn't like the lock out from 2 - 8 am, then again in the afternoon from 11 am to 4 pm. Other than that, everything was really good.
