People who are reading this review should be advised that Hanako is TOTALLY WRONG. She came from France and she had the place booked a month before she arrived. When she arrived she saw that the property being in the city, as it was listed, has a variety of ethnic groups. She was not comfortable because she isn't use to that. So she calls it a HOT zone. This place is 1/4 mile from a popular, rebuilt city middle school, a brand new state of the art library and I live less than a mile away. I have lived in the area with my wife and children for 22 years. I would not raise my family in a HOT zone. However, my children are now better prepared for the real world because they know how to interact with many people who do and don't look like them. They accept and judge people for who they are, not for how they look or where they are from.
Look at previous reviews from men and women. Our place is safe! Our place is also a great affordable place to stay, as long as you aren't someone who feels threatened by stereotypes of other people who might look different than you. Blessings
