I stayed here for 2 nights. I called the morning before I arrived to book a spot and they had space available.
The hostel is really nice - nicest one I've been in. The rooms have ~10 beds (5 bunk bed units) with wooden frames and thick, comfy mattresses. Each room has a bathroom with a shower and a toilet, so you can have a private shower. Sharing the bathroom 10 ways when the hostel is full could be a problem, but when I was there only about 5 guests were sharing my room and I never had to wait for the bathroom. The room has aircon and fans, and even a balcony.
The main (living) room downstairs was really nice - it has a big area for hanging out with comfy lounges. It has a kitchen and free water, coffee and tea.
The staff couldn't have been better. They were super friendly and very helpful. I became good friends with one of them in the 2 days I was there. They told me where to go & helped me book a train and call a taxi. They let me store my luggage there all day on the day I checked out.
One note - if planning on staying on a Saturday night, be sure and book ahead! I would have stayed one more night but couldn't because I didn't plan ahead!
