I was a guest at Sofi for over one year, under the previous management Jim and Ivon the place was great, a fun place to live. Sofi was sold in around october 2012 to an Indonesian couple who changed the rules,
# 1, No beer on sale in the coffee shop (they even asked the staff to lie about this and to tell guests that the beer was "on order" when in fact they had stopped selling it due to their religious beliefs)
# 2, No overnight guests allowed unless they are married, permission needed from the owners if you wanted a friend to come over for a few hours. What is the point in renting a double room if you cant have a friend stay over?
The new owners have absolutely runied this place, it seems they have no idea how to keep Western guests happy like Jim and Ivon did, it also seems they have no idea on how to run a business as there were many empty rooms.
Word soon spreads between expats about good and bad places to stay, Sofi used to be great but no more. If you want to have a fun place to live look elsewhere.More
