If you are a partier who stays up all night and doesn't sleep, then this place is great. It is cute- located in a great part of town in an old building with lots of character but it's the loudest place I've ever stayed- and we have been travelling all over the world for 10 months.
The wood floors allow noise to travel easily so even if you have polite people (which I don't think there were any of) you would be woken by sound. But the hostel appeared to be checking people in and out at 2:30am, people were talking loudly all night and ladies with high heeled shoes stomped around- we were in a private double room but we might as well have been in the hallway.
There are signs up which state that people should be quiet during the night but that is not enforced I can assure you.
Hot water? Not so much- I got about 90 seconds before it went stone cold. The receptionist was not surprised and explained (as I stood there naked in a towel) that all I needed to do was turn the water off, run it for 1-2 minutes and let it warm up. Great. So I guess technically, there is hot water, for 90 seconds at a time with frequent cold water breaks.
Bathroom smelled of sewage.
If you paid me to stay here again- I wouldn't.
