The hostel is in an excellent location-close to the art museums and theater, which is what I value. It was clean and the staff was helpful with directions, etc. I had trouble sleeping because the room was too cold. The air conditioner was kept on at too high of a temperature. Also, the staff played the radio way too loud in the evening. I couldn't sit in the common area and read because it was too loud. I had to go into my room and shut the door to get away from the noise.
