The hostel had lots of activities for people to do, like free walking tours and bar crawls. I really enjoyed the free walking tour and got to meet people in the hostel. The planned activities made it a lot easier to meet and talk to people. It was nice that they have a bar in the hostel because even if you don't do the organized activities, you can meet people there over cheap (good) drinks (have the sangria). I thought it was pretty affordable for all of the extra services/activities/fun they provided.
The only negative was that the bathrooms weren't kept up very well and it was very far away from my room. It was also kind of noisy in general.
