For the price that you pay for a train carriage room, I would expect more-damp and freezing cold. The staff were quite nice on check in but after that they dont really want anything to do with you because they are too busy hanging out with the long termers staying there.
The showers are cold. I apreciate that this is an eco hostel but for $68 I would at least expect a hot shower. Also, didn´t feel very comfortable using the kitchen because the long termers take over the space and you feel as if you are invading.
Overall quite disappointing.
