The street scenery around the hostel is like something from another planet for a lot of people. Buildings with thick slabs of snow on their roofs, icicles hanging off the eaves that sometimes reach the ground and wherever you look a blanket of white. On a lazy day it is really fun to get on some warm clothes and walk around the Echoland district admiring the snow-scape and the building architechture.
