I peronally don't like big hostels in big cities at all, so there's no surprise I didn't like it here. It's just way too crowded, there are literally NO spots to go to if you want some privacy. Whenever I would sit down somewhere with my laptop to get some work done, someone would come sit next to me and start talking even though they could clearly see I was busy and didn't feel like socializing at the moment. There's a party atmosphere every night, but since there are so many people and everone's just there for a short period of time, it doesn't feel like a nice atmosphere where you're partying with friends, just a bunch of random people thrown together. Usually I love partying, but over here I just went to bed early every night.
The beds are awful. It's a plastic matress and it's just very uncomfortable and makes a lot of noise which is also annoying when you're trying to be considerate to your roommates.
I slept in the 10 bed dorm and it smelled awful in there.
It's close to a lot of shops and restaurants, so that is nice.
There's music playing over the speakers every night and in the morning and you can hear it clearly in the rooms, so it's annoying when you're trying to sleep.
Also, I feel like it's way too expensive for what you're getting. When I booked a 6 bed dorm was 33 dollars. For 33 dollars you could get a hotelroom for yourself.
All in all, I really didn't like it at all and couldn't wait to get out of there.
