As many have said before: it's central, it's clean, it's inexpensive (for western standards). But the bathrooms may be a bit disappointing (the shower will make more than half of the floor wet, whichever way you point the shower head, and the water is not always hot, although each room has its own water heater - it simply does not work 100% and automatically switches off after a while). You get a clean towel and sheets every day! The wifi is shaky, but at least it's there and at no charge. The noise outside comes with the charm of the downtown area. Also the staff is friendly and help you to find a tour that matches your needs (of course there's some commission in it for them, but at least they make the effort). The beds are not as soft as they write in their brochure, don't let those lines fool you! Last but not least, the breakfast on the roof is nice, with the nice views. One night it had rained, and the roof was still dripping, so I'm not sure how that works when it's actually raining during breakfast hours. The only thing missing there is napkins and some fruit juice.
