This is probably the best 'youth hostel' experience I've had. The people here are just really, really marvelous! My roommate will be, I think, a good friend after we both leave the D.R. This morning, a band from Hait was rehearsing down the stairs. On one level, that is luck, but it isn't just luck. There is a lovely community that is being created here.
The cons: the sheets are awful! They don't stay on the beds. The 'fitted' sheets go about 2" down the side of the mattress and continually come off in the night. Also, you have to turn the electricity off when you leave the room, which means you can't store perishables in the fridge. I killed a cockroach. But it is a super-cheap, safe, nice place a 5 minute walk from the zona colonial. I would highly recommend it!More
