We stayed here for a night as a stopover before moving on to the next leg of our trip. The hostel is well-priced given it's excellent location, minutes from the obelisk. We had a private room which was clean and a good size with an overhead fan. The bathroom was also a good size with a reasonable shower.
The person on reception was polite and friendly and spoke good English; he did not, however, realise that I had paid a 10% deposit online in advance until I pointed this out to him, so watch out if you don't want to be overcharged (I think this was an innocent mistake, however, rather than an attempt to get more money out of guests!)
The hostel is large and appeared to be a sociable place - we were travelling as a couple and only passing through briefly, so didn't meet any other guests, but I'm sure in other circumstances we could have done easily. There was a bar and several common areas for socialising.
This hostel is well-priced and would be ideal if you're on a budget and looking to meet other travellers, it is basic but that's to be expected in this category of accommodation.
