For what we paid (3 nights accomodation and flights at a reasonable hour for £185 - bargain!) you have to expect it to be basic. we paid for two double rooms with private bathrooms, one was fine, the other was very small and although it had a private basin and shower their toilet was shared with two other rooms which wasnt good. they hostal did refund us $30 as a goodwill guesture but i would confirm with the staff what the room is actually including before you leave!
their customer service was very good, good English and very helpful for local knowledge too.
the comunal areas were a bit scary at first but you get used to it. there is a bar just next door which was really handy, seemed like a bit of a student dig but the cocktails were nice and the music was alright., nice to be able to have a drink after the metro closes without expensive transport.
all in all, it was a great break and would recomend it to anyone - just keep your expectations of a cheap hotel reasonanble!
