I spent two nights here in the dorm. When I first arrived, the staff member was very welcoming and di her best to give me directions to the Musical Instruments Museum which, lets face it, is at quite some remove from the hostel. They were also very accommodating when I wanted to change to a lower bunk. The bunks themselves weren't the most comfortable I have slept in but they were OK.
The really great thing about the hostel was the social environment - people hanging out in the common room and willing to chat. I can't comment on the breakfast because I found a wonderful cafe. I did use the internet a fair bit, and it was always reliable.
