First the pros: The price is pretty cheap ($66 for a private room), the facility is pretty clean in general, the staff were nice, the bed was fine.
The cons: One big one and one small one. The big one: NOISE! My room was right next to the office, and people stood right outside my door talking to each other and having loud phone conversations. Since this was before quiet hours, I didn't feel I had a right to complain. However, twice in the middle of the night that I stayed there, people came in very late (once around midnight and once around 3am) and they didn't seem to care that others might be sleeping. They talked loudly in the common area of the hostel. I don't know if I was the only one woken up, but it was very annoying.
The smaller con is that the shower I originally used (ground floor, to right of front door) was kind of grungy. The shower curtain was disgusting, and I really didn't want to step on the floor, either. Turns out the other bathroom on the main floor is much nicer, but I didn't discover that till later.
All in all I was happy to find such a convenient place at such a reasonable price, but I'd say they need to clean up parts of this place, and also do more about enforcing quiet at night.
