As other reviewers have said, the hostal is quite run down (sockets hanging off the wall, paint flaking and bathrooms generally tired looking). On the plus side if you want to be right in the thick of it with great bars, restaurants etc then the location is perfect for you and comparatively it's good value compared to hotels in the neighbourhood. The staff are also very helpful and can book you on all the tours heading north/south.
However, we stayed here on a stopover night between flights and found those plus points to be major detractions once you've gone to bed as it is very noisy in the area and the hostal has virtually no sound insulation.
We know the hostal is struggling to stay in an up and coming neighbourhood but it really is badly in need of a refurb.
