Al's place is a spartan efficiency in an attic above a bungalow. Totally suitable for my needs. It reminded me of when I was an undergrad. Good location in Berkeley in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to walk to BART 4-5 blocks or campus 10-12 blocks

Lisa, thank you for your review and glad you enjoyed our place.
