We stayed here last August 25-28. Our arrival was at dawn and upon inspection of the place I was surprised that the shared showers and toilets were only few. Apparently there were more on the first floor and on the other side of the building. I was with three friends so we took the room exclusive for four. We're not really the choosy type of persons so the place was already very good for us.
The staff were cool, the shared restrooms were clean, and the Wi-Fi was impressive (there's one desktop you can use for your convenience and perhaps transfer of files from your camera). They got free toast from 8-11 every morning accompanied by jam, butter, coffee, and tea. It's DIY so you have to wash your own mess afterwards. Hot and cold water's available 24/7 and...they got cheap beer! Good heavens.
The place is near two train stations (different lines) as well as bus stations so it's very accessible. It also happens to be near the Central Market and Chinatown so shopping and eating is not out of reach. Should you find it hard to locate the place, you can probably look for the Reggae Bar, as it also happens to be near it.
If there's one thing that can turn out problematic, that would be the noise which are not contained in the rooms. I was told that my guffaws can be heard down the corridor. Lastly, be aware of the country's electrical socket! We were dumbfounded when we found out. Good thing they also happen to sell adapters.
