Couple, late 30's/early 40's, stayed in a private room. Even though we did not enjoy staying here, it is still a nice hostel. I would say it's a contemporarily designed youth hostel but not a boutique hostel.
The good - newer, clean, good location, ok beds (a little firm), good AC with individual room control (although we had to ask the desk to reactivate for our room one day), and lots of hot water. For younger or solo travelers, they organize daily tapas or bar crawls which is nice for socializing.
The bad - We've stayed in boutique hostels before but had issue with the private room design. Biggest complaint is that the water is all on timer push buttons - in both the sink and shower! This is an energy efficient hostel, so I get what they are going for, but not being able to take a relaxing shower was too much. The bathroom configuration in the private room was designed for a dorm; the sink was in the bedroom waking the other person at night. No bath mat so water from the shower gets all over the floor. There was no closet or wardrobe to hang clothes, only a few wall hooks. There is a very large flatscreen tv in the room but would have rather had a storage area - it became a clothes rack. Everything else negative is what you normally expect from a hostel - the pillows were not comfortable, thin/cheap toilet paper, poor quality linens, slamming doors from the dorms, etc.
