I liked the hostel the only downside was my room was next to the stairwell and whenever anyone went up or down stairs they woke me up.

I can't recommend this hostel enough. I wish I could have stayed longer.
By all means, given the way this hostel is advertised, I should have really loved this hostel, but there were some issues: first, the atmosphere was horrible - lots of people but no one talking to anyone they don' know, and there was this Opera singer there who seemed to assume that everyone loved his voice and whistling. People were generally inconsiderate. The staff aren't the friendliest too. Also, the kitchen is a bit dirty, and the fridge is filthy! At least the free WIFI makes up for it.
Our only complaint was the bed was very soft.
Great hostel but the people staying there are quite long term and mostly arrogant pricks. So unfortunately it made it not very good. So if these people leave hostel would be awesome.
