Really nice hostel. Would stay here again. I do wish the staff were a bit more friendly. They were helpful but a few of them were a bit disconnected and distant. I don't feel like I really got to know the people who ran the hostel.

the location is great! right off the buss line! it has air conditioning! my only real complaint is that the bunks in the all female dorm are hard. you can feel the plywood under the mattress. this last time since it was so warn i didn't need the comforter, i placed that under the fitted sheet for extra padding. And that it's almost impossible to get a bed in the all female dorm on a saturday night in the summer...
