The hostel was bright and clean, with friendly staff, as well as friendly travellers. I heard rumours of the beds being very narrow, which they were, with no rails on the top bunks. I was a bit worried about off, but had no problems in the end, and a comfortable sleep! The rooms are filled with beds, and leave little space for luggage, although this shouldn't be a problem for a backpacker, and it is well worth the money! It could also be a little nosy at night as some bedrooms were right off the main sitting room, and showers weren't always warm!
I hadn't booked, and there was a little confusion over whether there was a spare bed or not. I stayed for 3 nights, without notice, only asking if there was a spare bed each day, and each night there was indeed a bed, and the staff were more than welcoming.
I stayed here during the protests (20/02/11) and the staff were amazingly helpful and reassuring. It also has to be said that the breakfasts are great, especially since they are included! There is also free Wifi, and use of the hostel laptop when it's free!
The best thing about this hostel is the friendly atmosphere - when the world seems crazy outside, you feel right at home here as if you are with friends. A must for the poor solo traveller!
