A group of 5 of us stayed in the large dorm. there were two toilets and hot showers, air con in the room , the beds were comfortable (impressive since im 6"6"). Breakfast was bread, eggs, coffee, jam, tomatoes, cheese, cucumber. certainly enough to fuel you for the day. There is a supermarket about 30m down the road which sells pretty much everything you could want food wise. There are plenty of takeaways for evening meals on a budget nearby of if you want something better there are plenty of nearby restaurants. Rooftop bars are a must, the atmosphere is amazing. The staff were great they were happy to help with anything, maps are provided and they have excellent local knowledge of the best places to go (i swear they speak better english than me) The large common room area creates a great atmosphere (like a proper hostel) there always someone new to talk to or share advice with. There are plug sockets everywhere in the hostel for all your electrical needs. We stayed during the riots and felt very safe despite the guy asking us to close the windows to keep the tear gas out. Overall I cant recommend this place highly enough.
