It is safe, the staff is friendly and the place in clean. You have locker, 2 plugs in near your bed. The public space of the hostel is pretty nice, in both blocks.
The location is superb and probably the biggest selling point of this hostel, you can walk to the basilica on hill very easily. 3-5 mins to Vieux Port. Proximate to supermarkets and cafes.
Though breakfast is included don't expect too much, they provide drinks, cereal and bread only, no ham or egg. And the big problem is there is no heating in the room, really freezing at night during my stay in January.
