This is a Trusted Review. Why?

I found this hostel to be a bit of a mixed bag; very friendly staff and lots of activities (if you like that sort of thing) weren't enough for me to offset the horrible lumpy mattress, barely functioning WiFi (seriously underpowered to deal with the evening rush) and general feeling of grotty-ness.
The kitchen was large and (mostly) well-stocked, and there was free breakfast (of a kind), and the location was convenient to downtown - but also right on the main highway into town, and thus there was a lot of street noise. Our room was tiny, and right opposite the main air conditioning duct, which kept blowing away even louder than the street-noise all day and night. (And sitting downstairs wasn't much fun either, as the staff's taste in music mostly ran in the direction of "very loud".)
I didn't see the promised hammocks either. :/
