Do not live here unless you want to deal with the worst management ever. They draw you in with the location, but it is NOT WORTH IT. The sink backed up with dirty brown water, even on the first day I moved in. When I came home to my room during the winter it would be OVER 100 degrees! The room was right on the fire escape, so its impossible to keep the window open unless you want seedy telegraph people in your room. My neighbor kept his window open because of the heat and someone climbed in his window in the middle of the night. Despite this, the management told me to just keep my window open. I went to the rent board and the manager berated me, accused me of being mentally unstable (for not wanting my window open at night), and tried to intimidate and insult me out of continuing with the rent board.

After the rent board hearing they stole many items of mail, including the rent board decision letter, cash someone sent me for a graduation present, and a t shirt I ordered. They also locked my clothes in the laundry room during laundry room hours. I had to call them to get it out, and they implied that I had vandalized the laundry room. The video cameras, which should be for the tenants' safety, are used to harass them instead.They would watch when I came home on their video cameras so that they could stop me in the halls. Though they have a camera pointing at the mail, they would not look at the footage when I requested they do because someone was stealing my mail. They insisted they had footage of me committing vandalism, when they could not have any such footage since I hadn't done it. When it came to getting my deposit back they charged me $10 for a $0.50 light switch cover and unreasonable amounts for things that were in the room when I moved in, that seemed like conveniences they had added (like a towel rack on the door).

Do not give these thugs your money.

The management and the workers there have got to be some of the worst people I've seen in my life. Either they're just retarded or as the previous reviewer wrote they have serious problems. They don't give out the managers office number, and the two different e-mail addresses that I have sent at least ten e-mails to, the managers still hasn't responded. I went over to the place wanting to talk to the manager, and the best the front desk guy could do was put a written small note in his mailbox. The manager has picked up the note already, and still no call or e-mail response. I have cash in hand and after a bad review by the previous person on this place, I still wanted to rent a room there because of the price and location, but forget that, these guys are stupid, literally. I wish there was a way to contact the owners of the building and tell them about their dumb management, but whatever, the building's gonna go down in the next earthquake anyways, so hopefully the next building being built there will have a person working there with atleast an average IQ. I wouldn't even try to get a room here as there are other places much better with way better management that actually care about you (for example Evans Manor on Haste or some studios around campus for a bit more), but as the previous reviewer stated, if you like bullsh*t, this is the perfect place for you...;)

Avoid.
The manager and some of the clerks burglarize rooms with the master keys and steal tenants mail. They have been known to stalk and assualt tenants who went to the police and one woman was raped in her room for going to the rent board. If you like cockroaches, threats, and violence, on the other hand, look no further.
