This was my favorite hostel. We were there 2 nights - it was inexpensive, we were able to get towels and sheets. It was sociable but not crazy, and the terrace was wonderful. The only thing I would recommend is that you figure out the way to the bathrooms and make sure you remember. The hallways and stairs are hard to navigate in the middle of the night with jet lag.
The guy at the front desk was really nice and helped us with everything from locking up our luggage to Internet access to even helping us find a Chinese restaurant. The other guy in the morning at the desk was also really accommodating and gave us garbage bags to put over our bags so they wouldn't get soaked through the rain. Id stay here again.

No frills but has a very nice, large common area next to the kitchen. The area is great, close enough to be a ten minute walk to anything of interest but just far enough out of the way not to be stuck in a tourist trap area.
The location was the highlight of staying here. We had to change rooms due to inappropriate behavior next to our bed. The kitchen was difficult to use given one stove and lots of people (very large hostel). The 10 person room we moved to only had one small window so air circulation was poor and the one fan was not enough to reach everyone.
