Stayed for a night in Jul14 over a Saturday night stopover. Place is interesting as it retained a lot of the old charm of such an old house. Having said that, it was too dim, even at 3pm when we checked in (place is a lot dimmer than the photos).
It was a good experience and one of the better hostels I have stayed. Wifi works well and the bathing facilities are adequate. Check-in was slow as it was peak period. Breakfast was simple fare - bananas, bread with peanut butter, jam. A point to note, you take off your shoes at the base of the stairs before walking up a long flight. The top floor is only suitable for those who can climb. The walls are very thin and ear-plugs will be useful for light sleepers.
Good location overall and the stops outside are of an era long gone. Interesting historical place and recommended for another visit.
