The hostel is quite far from the attractions although the public transportation system is close by and the staff is helpful in providing directions. The hostel was nearly empty when I was there so I had a room to myself for one night and it was quite lonely & quiet. However, the next night more people came. There's no real restaurants in the area, only quick serve restaurants in the shopping area nearby which closes quite early so make sure you eat in the city centre before you go back to the hostel. I found the hostel itself to be safe seeing as there is security downstairs, but the surrounding area did not seem as safe. The rooms were clean and the decor was really cool. It was nice to have a kitchen to use as well. Overall, it was a good stay but not very lively.
