Stayed here with a couple of friends back in January. The location is certainly very good, close to the centre and metro. On one of the big streets so its pretty safe. When we arrived we were attended very well. The first thing we noticed is how cozy and relaxed the common room is. There are a couple of computers with Internet, games, guitar, all free to be used. The kitchen, too, is very nice and well equipped.
The whole place, the toilet, the bedroom/dorm was good and clean. No complaints whatsoever in that area. (Although it would be great if there were more powerpoints in the room?) Not sure how it is now but when we were there the wifi was only available in the common room/lobby but our room was directly on top so we still did get a connection. Oh, free breakfast! For the price, we were surprised that it also includes free breakfast and its no lame breakfast, the spread was actually pretty satisfying.
Safe area. Great location. Friendly helpful staff, also helped us with suggestion and way around town. Loved the common room. Good kitchen, bedroom, toilet. One of the best you can find!
