Overall, my experience was good. It wasn't amazing but I wasn't bothered.
The location is very close to the city centre and it's safe at all times, even after midnight there are always people around and some shops are still open.
The hosts were nice but they barely spoke any English, it was a bit difficult to communicate, you'd probably use a lot of gestures and objects to explain what you want.
Value for money was good. In the room there were 5 beds, and 6 separate small closets with keys, all my belongings were safe.
The bathroom's smell wasn't that good, but it came out of the sewers not the uncleanliness of the bathroom. It was livable but not the best, I don't advise it if you can't stand things that aren't spotless though.
Bring your own soap, shampoo and towels. Towels were provided but the ones I washed at home smelled a lot better.
It was a bit difficult to find the hostel because the street is packed with other hostels and hotels, but it has a separate ground floor entrance, it's not on a top floor.
Overall it made my experience more diverse and I met some great young travelers there.
