My sister and I stayed there (first time in DF) for a couple of days in late January 2013 on our way to Oaxaca. Everyone at el Patio was responsive and nice - concerned - whether in person or via email. The map with taxi instructions was very helpful - I just handed the print-out to our driver.
The place is beautiful - architecturally and creatively interesting. There is a zen-like feel to the bedrooms - calm, light, spacious. High ceilings with the classic tiled barrel shape. We shared a bathroom but whoa, what a nice bathroom. It never felt or looked like a shared bathroom - they keep it spotless. Love the eco-friendly approach - we should all be doing this.
The location is convenient - close to a metro stop (San Cosme) and walk-able. We used the metro to get to Coyoacán - approximately 20 minutes. It is relatively quiet being on a side street, made even more so by an extra glass layer and shutters. Even though we were there for a short time, we were made to feel welcome and we had plenty to do & see, thanks to Diego.
Food options in the immediate area (if you arrive late) are few and basic but still interesting. We enjoyed watching soap operas with the local cantina staff on a Monday night. The next time I am in DF, I look forward to trying the long list of vegetarian restaurants from Diego.
I've recommended el Patio 77 already to a few friends (noting that it is LGBT friendly).
