Stayed here for 2 nights in May 2012. Friendly and laid back staff were on hand to welcome me. Kitchen has the first juicer I have seen in any hostel. Living area indoors is a bit dark and not too comfy for chilling out in, but if the weather is nice the garden has nice places to hang out in. I looked at the large dorm room in the basement which seemed a bit damp and open plan for my liking (but I could imagine how that might be nice and cool in the August heat). I opted for a 6 bed dorm upstairs. One of the 'walls' in the room was actually just a double glass door between the dorm and the living area which meant that it was always possible to clearly hear what was happening on the other side (a possible problem if you like an early night and others don't). Claas (the owner) was a lovely guy and took a bunch of us out to Blokku for a few drinks. Main problem I had was with the water pump which came on every few minutes all through the day and night and was a bit annoying. Ultimately, it's a fairly basic hostel with potential to be great if your expectations aren't too high.
