The Ace Hostel calls itself a 'boutique' hostel but I wouldn't list it as such. Having stayed on a top floor room of eight beds (Room 20), I couldn't sleep at all due to the heat in the room. Underwear and no sheets still left me sweating. That, plus the bathrooms were grim and horrible. It does have a sauna in the basement but your room will do the same job.
Fort Boutique on the other side of town also uses the 'boutique' tag and is much better.
