    I stayed at this hostel twice because its conveniently located close to Melville 7th Street and not too far by cab from the central bus station. Nice interior, good breakfast and the owner is friendly and helps you where he can.

    Good

    First impression was good. They informed us that there was a party, but it would end at 10pm. We usually like social hostels, but this was a private party, as far as we understand with guests coming from outside. Went out for dinner and drinks on the nearby 7 street. When we got back we couldnt fall asleep because people were either having sex or fighting right outside our window. Not well controlled by the staff, so wouldnt recommend it for people that want a quiet place where to rest.
