We stayed here for two nights in February, because we heard it was nice. It's very close to the main square, so that's a big plus. Most things you need in a hostel are there: wifi, some hammocks and a kitchen. No lockers in the private rooms btw. Unfortunately, there was no cool hostel atmosphere at all. People were just minding their own business.
We stayed in a double room next to the entrance, which was very noisy. The guy behind the desk had very loud music on his phone till late, so we couldn't just chill on our room. Also, the walls between the rooms are so thin you can hear conversations literaly. The showers are the bare minimum, with no showerheads available.
Next night we transferred to another room in the back of the hostel, but still very noisy. I don't know what the staff was doing with the garbage bins, but it woke us up a couple of times in the middle of the night and early morning.
Staff behind the desk was ok, but not very helpful.
Overall: a very mediocre hostel, but cheap and not too bad.
