This hostel is very well situated - right on the waterfront, with lots of good eateries around, and the main market a short walk away. It is basic no frills accommodation. We found the staff friendly, and helpful enough if we wanted information. The one negative for me was not being supplied with a top sheet/covering for the bed. With the air conditioning on it can be quite cool without something to keep you from the blowing air.
That said, we all found it clean and comfortable. I would certainly stay there again.
