The apartment was perfectly adequate for 6 people but it would be tight with 8. There are only 4 chairs around the kitchen table. The apartment could use some visitor amenities, like maps, bus schedules, literature about the area, maybe a few board games or a deck of cards. The walls are also pretty thin and the noise from neighboring units is loud, especially if kids are running around.
Having said that, the unit is a great location, and an easy walk to downtown and grocery stores. It is nicely furnished, clean, the beds are comfortable, and there is adequate parking. The owner was very responsive to our needs when we had a few minor problems.
