There are several establishments as well that are located right below Soledad Hostel. Among those is The Selftea Lab, a milk tea shop with quite a unique gimmick! I had the opportunity to visit the place back in 2019, and based on my experience there, the signature Selftea drink was indeed one for the books. If you're curious about drinking out of your own face, The Selftea Lab offers an add-on that lets you do exactly that. For a small fee, you can have your selfie picture printed on top of your choice of drink. 

The Selftea Lab sits between the hostel's entrance and a laundry shop. You could take a sip from your Selftea order while watching your clothes being washed and tumbled!
