I just stayed in Number 8 a couple weeks ago and enjoyed it there. The staff was great and very helpful - one guy even called ahead to Air Asia to find out the bus schedule for me since I had an early morning flight...and I hadn't even asked him if he would be willing.
From what I saw, all the rooms are dorm style, but they have huge cabinets for each bed so you can lock up your stuff inside and walk away without worrying. Comfy beds, aircon in each room. Only downsides were no cover sheet (unless you paid extra) as mentioned, so bring a sarong or fork out the extra 5 RM, and bathrooms are shared (but very clean).
