I would recommend this for groups or couples, but not so much for solo travellers. I stayed here on a weekday night in early September, so maybe I was unlucky with it being quiet, but the bar/lounge seemed rather dead - not great for travellers looking to meet people, though if you're with someone else you obviously won't mind so much.
The room was actually in the budget hotel across the courtyard, not in the main hostel, so I'm guessing they share their rooms to provide for private room bookings. My room had old and shabby furnishings but it was spacious, came with aircon and had more stuff than I was expecting - kettle, tv (admittedly only chinese channels), towel and made bed.
For a youth hostel, not bad at all, but as somewhere to stay rather than hang out.
