Urgh. Stayed here a few months back with four friends. What an awful, awful place. First and foremost, the staff seem to get pretty annoyed when you ask them anything at all, and seem to think that you're some freeloader trying to crash on their sofa as opposed to a paying guest. Secondly, do not stay here if you are from a cold country, because the rooms are approx. 1 hundred billion degrees centigrade. Thirdly, I was on the top of a triple bunk, and getting up and down the damn thing was pretty life threatening. The hostel is also in a pretty dodgy end of town- me and my friends were verbally abused at a nearby cashpoint.
Just don't do it.
