I stay at this hostel on a stag weekend, and I'll tell you that it's not as bad as people make it to be.
their was 17 of us staying here from Friday to Sunday and it had everything we could need; a bed with clean sheets, toilet in our room, Lockers to store our luggage, free wifi and a bar with €4 for a pint of beer. Or €2 from the vending machine if the bar is closed.
They don't change the sheets daily but wouldn't expect this from a budget hostel, (who changes there sheets daily at home?)
I didn't have the breakfast so can't talk about that,
Location is good only a 5-10 min walk to main shopping area where you can find anything you need, coffee shop or smart shop if that's wot your looking for, and plenty of places to eat.
I didn't choose this hostel but if asked I would go again for the right reason, you get wot you pay for here.
