This new hostel just opened a few months ago, and it offers incredible views over the city centre. As a new place, it's still working out the kinks, but for the most part works ok.
Pros: It is clean and has wicked views of the city. Breakfast is thin, but similar to what you'll find at 90% of hostels.
Cons: They turn the wifi off at night (so when we arrived at 10pm, it made it hard to tell that loved ones back home we had safely arrived). The hot water works, but the hotter the water, the lower the pressure, resulting in drip showers. The hostel is located on a busy road, so it was loud at night. And as two girls travelling alone, the biggest con is that the hostel is slightly out of the city centre (a 15-minute uphill walk from the main plaza), so we fretted slightly about our safety when walking in the dark as there are few pedestrians around.
