It was a little chilly at night because I was there in December and the hostel is really built for the summer. Plus one of the windows kept coming open on its own (we managed to fix it, though). The entrance to the building is really difficult to find -- you have to use the intercom and it only has a tiny sign by it. Overall, the hostel is clean, spacious, quiet (at least in December) and within walking distance of everything. Everyone is friendly and they give you breakfast and a towel too. Even though I was traveling solo, I met quite a few women to site-see with during the day, and had a great time. I'm not a fan of the "one key per room" thing, though, I'd rather each person get their own key, just in case. The neighborhood it's in doesn't feel super safe, but the hostel itself feels really safe. Also, it has a nice kitchen and communal area, and a fridge where you can keep food.
