I wish I could give this hostel a higher rating, but as other people have mentioned, do not expect to sleep here. They provide earplugs, but they are a joke, there is no way earplugs can dim the racket here (I tried). First problem is they are on top of a nightclub, literally. I heard loud, pounding music from 6pm until 3am, no exaggeration. I couldn't fall asleep until 3am because of the noise. Second problem, all the sleeping areas are open to all the common areas. This is unlike any hostel I've ever seen and very strange to me. You can hear people clattering about in all areas of the hostel at all times. Quiet hours are from 12am to 8am which is also strange, and they were negated by the club's music.
The hostel is very clean, they have a book exchange, DVDs to watch, a beautiful kitchen, laundry, nice showers and lots of resources, but I would never stay here again because all of that is less important to me than sleep.
