We stayed here on recommendation from busabout (don't go with busabout either - totally different can of worms though). When we arrived it was 4pm we were told that our room was not ready yet and to have a drink at the bar. I have never been so rudely treated by a bar tender in my life. Reception were able to fix the problem, after an open yelling match with the bartender in Italian.
We stayed in the new building (when we finally got our room at 9pm at night) and to say it was hot was an understatement. I have never been soooo hot. We had to sleep with the windows wide open the next night, which was fine except for the Mosquitos biting us to death. Also they are still building some of the rooms, so if its not the heat that stops you sleeping, the construction noise as well as the noise from the tour groups coming through will most certainly guarantee a sleepless night. The room had taken so long to be ready because it hadn't been finished being built yet. There were no locks on the bathroom door and the floor hadn't even been cleaned from the dust left over from the builders. The beds were as hard as rock.
If you are willing to put up with all this then the only good thing about the hostel is that the reception staff are helpful - even if a little too trusting, when room keys fail they just ask you what room and check nothing else, not even your name (saw them do this about 6 times in the short time I spent in reception).
Be forewarned that all of the plus hostel are not located anywhere close to the town centres.
All in all don't do it - one of the worst hostels we stayed in our entire trip.
