The main reason we picked this place was for it's location. It's right next to the university, so there are usually plenty of people around, and lots of security guards. That said, the area was completely deserted on Saturday and felt a lot less safe.
As for the hostel itself, considering the price (we paid $35 for a double with private bathroom), we expected better. But then I guess hostels in capital cities are always more expensive. The beds and pillows were rock hard and the hostel itself had a cold feel to it, despite their efforts to make it homely. The breakfast was terrible. Awful coffee and a loaf of stale slice white bread. We didn't bother in the end and just went down the road for breakfast instead.
Good points - the showers were good, hot and good pressure. The two girls at the front desk are lovely. They speak perfect English and are really helpful, and have a good knowledge of the area. The facilities are good too, there's a large kitchen, computers, a bar, and a tv room. I guess it was ok for a capital city hostel, but definite room for improvement.
