Having stayed for two weeks straight I can honestly say that this is a great hostel. The atmosphere is nice, the people are friendly and helpful, it's kept very clean, and to top it all off it's cheap.
The six bed dorms at the front can get a bit of noise from the street. I stayed at the big 10 bed dorm during my stay, which was practically empty most of the time. It was like a giant private room for only 60 pesos :)
I do remote work and I could work very comfortably from this place. The wifi works well (most of the time) and there's plenty of quiet space to sit. There's a very relaxed communal area, a pool table, a nice rooftop space. There's no A/C, but there are plenty of fans, which I actually prefer.
The only downside I would say is the breakfast, it's extremely basic. Dry toast with jam, or sugared cornflakes. I ended up making my own breakfast which is luckily very easy in the big and clean kitchen.
