Stayed here for 5 nights in a shared room for 8 people. Used just as a place to sleep. Staff were friendly and accommodating.
What you should know:
*The place is pretty much as it looks in the photos except it is a little beat up - scuff marks all along the walls. The staircase is quite narrow (use elevator when you carry your luggage up and down).
*Towels are not provided - if you are travelling to other hostels on your trip, I suggest investing in a travel towel (or two)
*When using wifi - buy wifi for the device you are going to use the most. The password they give you to use the internet is not transferable between multiple devices, that is to say you can use either their computers or your own personal device (e.g. tablet or smartphone). If you want to use both, they told me I would need to pay (at least the minimum fee) for wifi on both devices. Also, I should add that roughly 2 hours of wifi access was enough to last me 4 days.
*Good security. Must present your access card to security before entering hostel. I have come after midnight on several occasions, and there was always someone there to check.
*Bathroom/Washroom is cleaned everyday - there is a little whiteboard hanging from the door that says who cleaned this room and when.
*The floor inside the room was probably the least appealing part of the room. The one in my room looked very old and unclean...in one word...scary! Wore a pair of sandals I had brought with me, so I was okay.
Keep in mind:
Roommates can have a big impact on your experience at any hostel. Some of the ones I had were friendly, quiet and considerate, while others partied hard, vomited all over the bathroom floor, made phone calls (in the room) until around 3am. I thankfully missed most of this since I would Skype family and friends from the computer room till around 2-2:30am.
It is in a safe neighbourhood.
Would go there again, but may want to try another hostel in another location first for comparison.
The hostel staff were very friendly and accommodating.
The tourist information was very helpful and complimented well with my guidebook.
