Don't let the price fool you
An amazing experience. Inexpensive, friendly staff, great environment. Highly recommended.... Bring your own towel and don't forget shower shoes (sandals, flip-flops)

Upgrade to a smaller room if you can
Paying a little more and staying in a female only 6 bed dorm was a great decision. The bunk beds were far more stable than some other hostels. The cleaning ladies would come through the rooms once a day to change the beds of the people who had left and then hoovered the room. There was only one disabled bathroom and one shared female/male bathroom with only one shower for the whole floor but as I wasn't there in peak season this wasn't an issue though I could easily see this being a problem. There was plenty of storage space, with lockers that you could put your belongings in, though you would need your own lock if you didn't feel safe leaving your stuff unlocked. By each bed there was a charging point, 2 USB ports and 2 plug sockets, so you have the potential to charge 4 devices at a time. They also provided free wifi, but this is only 2GB so can run out quickly if you decide to have a chill day in the hostel. However, I have heard from other people that the mixed rooms with more people were less enjoyable so I think the upgrade is worth it.

Overall I was very pleased with my stay but some of my room-mates weren't as accommodating. However one shouldn't expect that everyone you meet is going to be considerate and reasonable.

Not enought common utilities for so many rooms
The hostel is very well organized and it great condition. However, the common space rooms are a bit short for so many beds. I was here in the low season and, as such, this was not a big issue, but if the beds occupancy are above 60%, i immage it wont be a nice place to stay (overcrowded).
