I've stayed here many times over the past 20 years, and it just keeps getting better. Love the updated kitchen, and the affordable laundry. My only issue is the often sketchy WiFi service...even in the lounges. As more and more of us count on WiFi to keep in touch while travelling, I believe spending a little more to upgrade the Wifi would be money well spent. It would certainly reduce one major frustration.

The hostel is very good and the personnel very nice. Unfortunately, there was a lot of noise at night: my room was close to the entrance and the doors often banged. Besides, some of my roommates were noisy. I often stayed at youth hostels and this is the first time I did not sleep well because of the noise, from doors banging shut and noisy roommates who woke me up several times!! Except for that, everything was fine!
