Beware...be aware confirmation means nothing.
We arrived to find that confirmation did not mean anything and we had no room, and were told five others had booked or "overbooked" exactly the same room for the same date. This is not a service.

Lovely people!
Only my 2nd time in a hostel, and I had an amazing experience. My boyfriend and I stayed in the private room and, apart from being the most affordable option around, we met some first rate guests! Went out drinking together and had great conversations!
