Very nice staff, I was charged slightly differently upon arrival from what I was told I would have to pay online.

I was disappointed in this hostel because I was under the impression that I could pay (in full) online with the reservation that I made online (not just the 3.95 fee). That wasn't the case. My friend and I showed up around 10:30P, the staff was delirious, sent us to a closed ATM to get money out since I couldn't pay online, woke up the next morning to get the money out of the ATM, and the staff acted like they didn't have change. It was an annoying 7 hour stay.
