I am half of a low-20s couple who moved in to an executive efficiency apartment in early September. It's basically a one bedroom without the wall, but over $100 cheaper per month. It's huge - we actually don't have enough furniture, where we though we were going to have too much. We've been very happy so far - we've yet to hear our neighbors, the apartment is completely renovated (new appliances, carpet, cabinets) and very clean (We have yet to see a single bug of any kind!), and the staff has been friendly and helpful. We've met a few of our neighbors, and they are very friendly - they seem to be mostly young working couples like us. <br>The apartment is also walking distance from Shirlington Village, which has numerous bars and restaurants, a post office, a movie theater and more. I did a lot of comparison price shopping prior to selecting this apartment, and I am amazed at how cheap it is - everywhere else I looked in this price range, I felt scared and uncomfortable and the apartments were dirty and small. I am a young female, and I feel very safe walking around the parking lot and the halls, which was very important to me. <br>The only bad things we've experienced are that parking can be difficult to find after 11pm - you usually have to park on the street beyond the lot. We have yet to not find a parking spot, though, we just have to walk farther. Also, the halls are kind of dingy and the elevators are old. We had to move our couch up the staircase because it wouldn't fit in the 60's era freight elevator. There is no metro in the area, but you are right on 395, and there is a shuttle to take you to the Pentagon Metro. We are also on the side that is right on 395, so when we have our windows open, we can hear the traffic (especially at rush hour!). I would suggest that people looking at Shirlington house get an apartment on the side away from the highway to avoid the noise. <br>
