This is definetely one of the best hostels I've ever staid in. It was cheap, yet the location was wonderful (right behind the Opera house), the room was very large (larger than in many hotels), there was a nice and clean en suite bathroom, it was really peaceful and quiet and you get your own keys to come and go as you wish. It was also possible to store your luggage there on the last day. The hostel has a kitchen with some utensils that the guests can use. There is no 24h reception so you need to inform the hostel beforehand of when you'll arrive, and the whole stay has to be paid upon arrival on cash (they also accept euros). The only minuses are that the room was slightly cold, but that's probably because of the cold spell in Europe at the time, added to the gas problems with Russia, and that there was no frying pan in the kitchen.
Obviously this is not the Four Seasons but with these prices that's not what you would expect. The price/quality ratio was probably the best of all the places we've ever staid in.
Someone complained of dark corridors in the hostel earlier. There are motion sensors that switch the lights on so everytime you exit your room, try to find the sensors to get the lights on.
