We were expecting a youth hostel and ended up sharing a number of rooms with older homeless men, although nice people there was no atmosphere whatsoever, nowhere to hang out with the other people in the hostel.... more of a homeless half-way-house with many of the people living there full time in the dorms.
The manager was lovely but most of the other staff were rude, there was rarely anyone at the front desk and it was hard to get their attention.
also massive bed bug infestation, we moved rooms and found them there immediately, they are in nearly every room from the look of it. We found them in some cereal we were eating from the box in the room and in the beds and were bitten more than 200 times each over the week that we stayed there.
My phone was also stolen from one of the dorms, the management was apologetic but it just goes to show that the place is not backpacker orientated and there is no atmosphere of trust and fun that you find in most hostels
