I picked this hostel because I wanted to save money at the end of a trip. I learned my lesson: hostels are not for me anymore! The reviews were more than good so I thought this would be a safe choice even though it was not an hotel... but an hostel is an hostel.
I agree that location is great, and the rooms are nice given the ridiculously low price. However, I did not enjoy my stay there for the following reasons.
#1 The bad humidity smell in the rooms. It smell really bad, a persisting odor and it seems there was nothing to do about it according to the staff lady.
#2 The insects downstairs at night. I understand this is an old building, but does it really justifies having plenty of hard shell insects running on the floor when entering the building at night?
# 3 I cannot say the staff was friendly...
Having said all that, each individual has its own expectations and I don't say you should avoid this hostel. It is OK given the great price and location, and if you travel on a budget this is a good option. Finally, I must say that if you take the bad smell out of the equation, the room we had was nice and clean.
