Value for money is great, especially if you book from hostelworld.com. Dorm room is really spacious and large, with large roof windows. It also is the cleanest I have stayed in so far. The shower facility is nice as well. The downside is location. You do have a bit of a hike up from the center to where the hostel is. There is no WIFI, which is a problem, because you have to hike down to the center and find a cafe to get it. You have a slow computer with 10mb/s. But overall, good value.
The hostel staff are splendid--friendly, helpful, and have a sense of humor. I got invaluable advice not only from the travel agency in the hostel (which is great by the way), but the staff as well. Breakfast was great, with french toast, fresh tomato, cucumber, hard boiled egg, cereal, yogurt.. Shower isn't the best. Shower taps make water come down funny, but the temperature is fine and it's spacious inside. Bar/cafe attached to hostel is a great place to hang around. Loud at night.
