I always find it so hard to choose a hostel when the reviews are so mixed and so personal so I'll try and keep this factual! As a 43yo single female traveller I found JJ's to be a very comfortable place to stay and feel it offered great value for money. Everywhere was kept very clean (scrubbed right into the corners!). Staff were very approachable and helpful. I had no problems with noise or security. The walk into town is really not that far. All in all a very basic hostel but run extremely well.
