The managers were super helpful for everything we needed, always there, great folks. Kitchen gets pretty crowded because it's not exactly spacious, and the outdoors area is small but nice. Rooms are great, but the mattress springs are one step away from poking through. Lots of street noise. Huge lockers are really nice. The 3 bathrooms are nice in that the toilet, sink, and shower are all together, yours until you leave... but 3 bathrooms are not enough for all the folks there. Nice social place but no parties.
Bad points: There's a BBQ, and when it's used the whole hostel fills with smoke. If you have smoke allergies, DON'T GO. Also, it's not exactly clean... the toilets are cleaned every day, but after my 7 day stay, nothing else had been cleaned: there were the same mirror smears, hairs in the sinks, grime in the corners, muck on the bathroom floors, just a little thicker throughout. Generally not in great repair either, showers don't drain, toilet seats broken, etc. Liquid soap is provided, sort of... one bathroom had no soap for the entire 7 days, and no toilet paper for 4 days, despite requests.
