Stayed here for two nights with my boyfriend during our recent interrailing trip and we were both impressed. We slept in a dorm with six other people who were all friendly and considerate. We each had our own locker, so we could rest assured that all of our things were safe. I could not fault the location: it is genuinely perfect. It's only a five minute walk from central station and the street stays reasonably quiet at night so it's easy to get a good night's sleep if you so wish. The room was clean as were the shared toilet and shower facilities. The hostel has its own bar which is reasonably priced and it also has its own smoking room which is pretty chill. There was free wifi in the room which was great but I would have liked to have had plug sockets in the room too. They were available downstairs in the bar area though. We'd totally forgotten to bring towels but we managed to rent some from the hostel which was nice. The staff are also friendly and helpful. I think the only thing I could fault with this hostel is the stairs... We were on the top floor, there is no elevator (so don't stay here if someone in your party is disabled. it isn't accessible at all.) and the stairs are extremely steep - not something you look forward to after a day indulging in all the city has to offer... Regardless I'd definitely recommend this hostel to any young backpackers, it was exactly what we were looking for and it was certainly worth (if not better than) what we paid for it.
