I actually stayed in this hostel 3 nights over-all. My sister and I the first night, the second two nights alone. The best thing about this hostel is that it is relatively cheap and all 3 times I stayed it was last minute (and there was room!)
The staff were very nice, and there's free wifi and a big tv in the common area, however, the rooms are not great. I think it depends a lot on who you stay with, I stayed with one woman that was absolutely horrible, but yes, the facilities are not really that good. One of the showers was cold, and the rooms were kind of cold and under-furnished. Also breakfast is bagels and butter/jam..not great either.
However, the neighbourhood is safe (I felt safe at least and saw many families etc around) and if you need a stay last minute, this works fine.
