Only the location is great, the rest is average. I slept in a 3 bed female dorm, with a window that didn't stay open. I fixed it with one of my shoelaces and they just left it there.It is really (too) hot in the hostel during summertime, no aircon. The only aircon is at the reception. The older female receptionists are really nice, the younger ones a lot less.The elevator is often out of order (which lasts at least 24 hours!) What I really couldn't appreciate is the very loud intercom. At 9.45, 10.00 and 10.15 AM they call people on the intercom to check-out on time! (like they do at flight terminals, really annoying) Seriously, just charge people who don't check-out at 10 AM extra and leave the rest of us alone!
