It's a large flat space. Think of Kerberos and Bats in the Count Trial and you'll get a general idea of what the map is like. It is also right next to a potion store, and that potion store sells 4k variants (if you need them).
The monsters hit less. They do about the same damage when they hit (I get hit for 4k crits by Beetles and F44 monsters), but they hit you significantly less often. For 100 MP potions, I use about 25 HP potions.
If you can't ohko, it's still a decent training place. Unlike Beetles, they won't boom on you so you don't have to worry about that. The only huge downside is that you may or may not be in a perpetual state of Shockvibe, which can make it harder.
I didn't mention this in the guide, and I should have. The Integer Byte quest you can do here is also a great supplement to your grinding. 50 Integer 44 is not that hard to find (Tay and I just do mass picking ups every-so-often) and for her at 167 she gets 5% per turn in and at 206 I got about 3% per turn in. Her Cat at around 23x gets 1-2% per turn in. It's a really good supplement to your grinding.
Now, I'm not 100% sure if I got more EXP at F44 in comparison to Beetles. I prefer more active grinding (i.e., moving around) and Beetles is significantly less active than F44. However, since F44 monsters are higher than Beetles, you can milk them significantly longer.
