I had read some comments regarding this hostel before i went there and it had mentioned that its difficult to communicate as they don't speak English but I found that the person at the counter could actually speak good English. But the cleanliness and hygiene was a concern as the smell in the corridor was not very pleasant. The rest was ok.
The location was excellent and can't be better. The room was okay for the price. But reception staff couldn't speak much English hence it could be a small problem. The only thing is that the place is completely not soundproof, hence the door and talking sounds at the reception will keep you awake past midnight. Our stay was still reasonably pleasant.
The hotel location can't be better - it's incredibly central with lots of shops, restaurants and tourist sites around. Our stay was pleasant but one minor point is that though the staff members are nice, they can't speak much English, hence communication could be a problem. The other point was about the place being not soundproof at all - the noise from the reception kept me awake past midnight during our stay.
