The bed, dorm room and wash facilities are clean and there is a lot of communal space to chill out in. Owing to its large size it was a little impersonal so if you travel alone you may find it difficult to be put into situations where it's easy to strike up a conversation. That said, I did not do any of the guided tours which are usually are great for meeting people. I would certainly stay there again although I would ask for a room over looking the side of the building as opposed to the road. It was quite noisy at night.
