WOW! Absolutely fantastic.
The Blue House was full when I arrived, so I had to stay next door for a few days before I could get in. That's really too bad - however, I was fortunate enough to get an awesome room here yesterday.
The Blue House is well kept, modern, has very reliable Wi-Fi, tons of hot water in the shower, excellent breakfast buffet every morning, several huge common areas with tables and chairs, pool table, tv, even a BBQ in the front yard you can use. They have cold, cold beverages for sale at cheap prices in the lobby, many useful travel maps and brochures, As with most places, it has a secured gate ... and a storage room for your luggage. They also have safety deposit boxes for your valuables. ALL AT A FABULOUS PRICE - dorm rooms start at $8.
But the absolute best attribute is Christian. Christian runs the place during the day ... his happy, smiling face is always ready and more than able to help you with anything you need. And, he speaks perfect English - which is great for me.
Christian really put the icing on the cake. I'd recommend this place to anyone and everyone - and I've taken some business cards with me to do just that.
You won't be disappointed.
