This hostel has a very central location from which it is easy to walk to many attractions and shops. The staff were friendly and helpful. Our room (a 4 bed dorm) was large, sunny and clean with comfy bunks.
The bad points were: filthy bathrooms which were not cleaned once in the 2 nights we stayed; a rather grotty kitchen with insufficient cooking utensils and 2 out of 3 toasters not working; air-conditioning in the bedroom rattled all night; a food thief stole our carefully labelled food (only lunch-meat but still upsetting).
On the whole, it was a very low-average YHA experience. We have stayed in YHAs for many years and this is definitely not the best.
If staff were more vigilant about cleaning the toilets and kitchen, it would be an enormous improvement.
There was not much street noise or in-hostel noise on the Friday and Saturday we stayed.More
