Wasn't exactly recent but was memorably good. My friend and I were going to San Francisco for an event and our flight was delayed something like 6 hours, and then diverted to San Jose. We didn't actually get in to the hostel until like. 3-4am. We'd called earlier to let them know we were going to be Extremely late, and we were incredibly relieved to be welcomed into the hostel at about... 3-4am? We deeply appreciated the flexibility of the staff.

The only complaint I have is that one of my suitemates had an extensive amount of personal effects with her that made it difficult to store and access my own in the below-the-bed lockers. She was very friendly and did make an effort to rearrange her stuff in order to accommodate my needs, but it made it difficult to not in turn disturb others later at night or early morning when I needed to get ready for work or otherwise access my belongings. I don't know if this is something that can be better controlled/addressed or not, as I have limited experience with hostels. It didn't ruin my stay by any means but it was frustrating to move her numerous suitcases and bags, or wait for her to, each time I needed to access my own stored belongings.
