Stayed here for 1 night in May 2011, and found it to be clean, friendly, but lacking in comfort. The beds were basic bunks, the pillows might as well have been empty, and the four share dorm I was in was very squishy once full. The shared bathrooms were clean, but the showers have only two settings - off and boiling, and the water runs on a push button that lasts for about 20-30 seconds before it shuts off. Still, as my first hostel experience, I found it conveniently located for the trains, the staff friendly, and the downstairs common area comfy. For a 1-2 nights stay it is well worth the money, but I wouldn't stay longer than that.
