Resident • 2007 - 2008
I took over a sublet. Unfortunately the previous tenant was a smoker (not allowed) so the whole apt was nicotine stained and smelled, as no one had cleaned before we came in. I had looked at newer buildings which seemed bright and cheery, but the one we ended up in was pretty dark and old looking. There was little things like the faucet leaked, the screen door fell off, closet doors didn't really work.....things we reported but were never addressed. They did not give us a tough time when we moved out. Washers in units were ok, beats hauling your stuff outdoors. I was in an upstairs unit and hardly heard any noise. Parking was ok. Hot water was just ok. The appliances looked old, stove was filthy, dishwasher did not appear to be in working condition.
Think there was a limit on pets (1-2 cats, no dogs ever) but you could hear a zoo in one of the neighbors units.
Overall, it's ok. It's not too expensive, but it's not super nice either. If you need something low-cost that close to a variety of Albany locations it's not bad. I never feared for my safety.
