The Purple House is clean and comfy, but it's really awkard to be staying in the house of someone who doesn't really appreciate the presence of strangers there. Every time you look up somewhere, you see a new rule. I stayed there 5 days in total (in and out) and in the end I was exhausted of being watch for every movement I made. I felt like it would have been better for me to be something like a ghost. Also, the price for a night was 7,77$ but I had to pay 5$ just to stay there until my night bus, which is absolutely ridiculous.
The owner is a nice lady, but I think she's done with that. Purple House may have been the number one place for travelers during the past, but now it's time to move on I guess.
