Question: Are you using jQuery with your AngularJS app?

I noticed that AngularJS's jqLite does not support CSS selector querying (https://github.com/angular/angular.js/issues/801).  For someone with a Backbone background, this seems rather critical... which leads me to believe one of two things:
1) Most AngularJS apps use jQuery (zepto or whatever)
2) jQuery features, like CSS Selector querying, aren't as important in AngularJS apps, as other features in AngularJS (directives, bindings, etc.) reduce the need for heavy duty DOM querying/manipulation.

Thoughts?
Thanks!

If I could advice one thing about jQuery it would be this: don't include it by default, add it only if you really, really need it. You can go pretty far with pure AngularJS and native directives.

This is EXACTLY what we need. Encapsulation is the key.
Lacking it, is why our client side browser code grows into big balls of mud.
...until than we'll hackishly emulate as much as we can:
CSS: OOCSS, SMACSS, modular css
JS: AMD modules, IFIs/global namespaces
DOM: jam it into JS, script templates

As a another review mentioned, the photos are deceiving. Rooms and hallways appear to be renovated on a really tight budget and still look very worn. My room's walls was pealing with stained areas. The AC didn't work so I moved to another room. No fridge, a crappy small TV from the 90s, and odd smells. One positive: Staff seemed relatively friendly. All in all, I can't recommend this place.
