Not in a very good location if you don't have your own transport.
The dorm was a little strange, built in a old garage with the dining table right in the middle and the kitchen to one side... When I got there the whole dorm smelled of food. Toilet on one side, shower on the other but no sink. If you want to wash your face or your teeth you have to use the sink in the kitchen.
The owners were very nice and helpful, even took me to the gas station to use the ATM so I could pay them.
A little weird to be having coffee in the morning in the main house with their children there having breakfast...
