Administrating the server isn't that big a problem; (probably as long as you 
don't have very special needs)
The repository will take "somewhat" more than the contents of your 
head-revision of your projects.
So this shouldn't be the big problem.

So what I see in regard of having the server "lent" is: (in no special order)
+ You don't have to bother with server-updates (but still with client-updates)
+ They do the backup
+ You have your code accessible wherever you have internet-access and a cvs 
+ You can share the access with other developers
- You need internet access to get at your code or commit
- Internet-access will be slower then your local repository
- You probably have to pay for your internet-connection
- You have to live with whatever policies (update, backup, ...) "they" have in
