I stayed here for a few months and didn't have any problems. They used to collect the $100 on the 19th or they would sell your spot but sold on the next month and if you didn't pay rent for the next month you shouldn't be there anyway... I remember some people had a hard time because they were not used to shared living but I enjoyed it. Reminded me of a European hostel and if your not used to shared living then save your money for a apartment.
I stayed here as well and had a blast! Met all kinds of cool people and had a few partys that were fun. The other guy probably didn't like being in a house with so many other people but collage is like that if he ever went. The kitchen had a cook when i was there and we got meals every day. Good experience and good people.
