... is what I initially thought. Let's face it: dormitories are generally the last place you want to stay. However, this place has its *stuff* together! They've really thought of everything. The dorm rooms with pods are excellent -- each pod has its own international electrical outlet, reading light, cubby space, curtain, and locker (they even provide a key). They provide towels; there's ALWAYS toilet paper in the bathrooms; there's a full kitchen on the top floor, as well as a really nice common space on the ground floor and a pretty cool roof which everyone drinks on all through the night. Coffee, tea, and water refills are free all day, and there's Wifi and a couple of computers for public use. The directions on the website are perfect, and it's super easy to get to. Breakfast is included; it's only white bread, various melon slices, and apple juice, but it's free! The owners, Ning and Ian, are really lovely and always willing to help. I think it's the warmest greeting I've ever received at a guest house. Also, you get an itemized printed receipt upon checking out! Really amazing. All that being said -- it's still a dormitory, so no matter how incredible it is, that doesn't stop people from having inappropriately loud sex in the dorm rooms at 3:00 am, or drunk people from puking in the bathroom sink, or the group on the rooftop belting out "Wonderwall" at insane hours in the morning (which, by the way, can be heard through the whole building). So, I mean, it's an excellent place to stay... but it's still a backpacker hostel.
