Sadly the owners of this well located Hostel seem to of become a tad complacent as it always seemed to be full.
It is really well located and despite this central location, doesn't seem to suffer too much from late night noise issues.
As others have mentioned, the air-con is an issue. It is an old, seemingly centrally controlled system that you seem to be forever asking the staff to turn on, which of-course, they get bored of.
The wireless internet seemed to get less powerful the further away from reception you got.
Be very specific about which type of room you want, i.e. twin or double, put it in capital letters in as many places as possible when booking through 3rd parties, as they don't always pay the attention that they need too when dealing with these bookings.
We were given a twin when we'd clearly asked for a double and I was told that there was no alternative.. until my Spanish speaking girlfriend arrived, then nothing seemed to be too much trouble?
Value- wise, it would be fair value if the owners invested in better air-con & internet, instead of penny-pinching.
The staff do keep it very clean.
