Overall impression was very good! Just one thing about the security, the backdoor wasn't locked at night. I don't know if that's always like that or a one timer.

There should be at least small lockers somewhere in the hostel that could be used to lock small valuable items in, leaving everything out in the rooms or carrying valuables around with you isn't ideal. I have never stayed at a hostel before that doesn't have some form of lockers available for use. This could be be easily remedied and would give better security ratings.
