I have to admit, when I first walked throughthis hostel I thought 'What kind of hippy-dippy place is this!?' But I quickly came to like it. You can't tell from the outside, but it's almost like a compound of several buildings all joined together. There is ample and colourful space to chill inside- and some hidden spots for a bit more solitude. The spacious open courtyard was very relaxing and enjoyable. Breakfast was decent- self serve, AYCE, cook your own eggs. Dinner can be had for an extra charge- sometimes worth it, sometimes a bit pricy for what was on offer. But it's there and you don't have to go out and find some place. I'm not sure if any of the dorms have street-facing windows. Mine didn't, but the open skylight created a nice fresh flow of air. Sometimes there was a wait for a washroom, but one was out of service during my visit. The counter staff are friendly and helpful, and the caretakers clean this place top to bottom daily. Also, foreigners using a credit card don't pay the hotel tax. There are a couple of parks within a few blocks.
