So expensiveâ€”not worth the money. There are charges for every single thing (e.g. paying utilities, paying rent) and pricing simply isn't transparent. That being said, however, the location can't be beat. It's in the heart of Dinkytown, a safer area than most off-campus living situations, and offers great access to the U and Minneapolis. Furthermore, the staff, although sometimes unprofessional, can really surprise you sometimes. We were having some maintenance issues and, although our pleas were largely ignored, when it REALLY became an issue (i.e. our apartment un-livable), the manager on duty rolled up her sleeves and got the work done. It's pleasant surprises like that, coupled with the location, that makes the steep price tag (almost) worth it.
