This hostel is nice enough. Everything is very clean and well-kept but the ambiance just isn't there. I was there in mid-march and the hostel was an absolute ghost town. I went to another hostel 2 days later and it was much more active. No one was here aside from an Australian student I met who confirmed that before I got there he hadn't seen anyone else. The meeting/group area wasn't to inviting either.
The area can be a little sketchy at night but also very fun. Be sure to ask at the front desk. He told me which areas to avoid and fun areas to meet other young travelers. So while the area can be fun if you know where to go, the hostel itself wasn't much of a social hostel. I wouldn't mind going here with a group of friends but if I was traveling alone I definitely would not come here again.
