We stayed here in June 2013. Good: Nice matresses, clean rooms. They were accomodating enough to let us in at 1AM when we finally arrived.
Bad: The rest, unfortunately. We were travelling as a couple and as such needed a double room. They had none with larger beds, but plenty with two beds. That's fine - it's a hostel, after all. We chose a room with bathroom. The problem is that we ended up paying the same price for this as we would in a hotel, with a tiny cot of a bathroom (with a hair in the shower - classic). To boot, breakfast service ended at 9 in the morning, an hour earlier than most hostels I've been at, and certainly far too early for 1AM arrivals. They didn't appear to have many guests, and the entire point of a hostel is to have a friendly atmosphere with helpful staff, so I don't think it would have been too much to ask for to have them hold off a bit on the breakfast. When we checked out the guy behind the counter didn't ask how was our stay, which I suppose fits with the rest of our experience there.
