I remember being overwhelmed when trying to decide what the best housing option for me would be. In the end, I decided to pay the extra fee to have a shared apartment. I absolutely loved my apartment and never once regretted it. My close friends here all at different options, as you'll hear from them in my video. In the end, I think the consensus is that paying the extra fee is worth it, but that all the options are good, it just depends on what you're looking for.
