Stayed here for 3 nights at the beginning of January 2013 in a private 8 person bedroom (Room 6). The room itself was very basic with 4 bunk beds, 2 chairs, A small table and a set of lockers. To be fair the room was a good size and mostly clean but with worrying marks over the walls near the beds, electrics hanging off the wall and the en suite bathroom was almost unusable.
Also we seemed to have more pets than just the fore mentioned bed bugs (although we didn't get as many bed bug bites as others travelers have reported). Outside our window was a little court yard area where the hotel like to store their bins. The problem is this area is also home to rats who managed to get into our room at least one point that we know of during our stay.
And then there was the en suite bathroom. With a toilet seat and toilet lid that wasn't actually attached to the toilet, black stinking mold growing around the wet room style shower facilities and a disgusting toilet brush that would make anyone feel sick these were not the best facilities I've seen in a hostel.
And I should also mention the steep and twisty stair cases that do not feel safe (especially after a night out).
But on a positive note the location of this hostel can't be faulted as it's located on a very busy street close to the center and only a 5-10min walk from Central Station and the hostel was usually quiet at night (apart from a fire alarm one night) so you were able to get some sleep.
Personally I would not stay here again and I would not recommend but it didn't kill me and could have been worse.
