We stayed for 3 nights (in the hotel area, not the hostel) . We found the hotel facilities good for the price we had payed (40 euros for a twin room): the room was not big, but was very clean and even had a desk, a hair dryer, shower gel in the bathroom.
The location is great, we walked from the train station Hauptbahnhof with our bags and it took us around 10 minutes and it was very easy to find the way with simple indications from the tourist office in the train station.
It was very noisy though: there was a crowd of teenager students, that were very loud: they put loud music on in some rooms (namely on the room next to mine, run in the corridors, bang doors and make all kind of noise. The walls are thin: when our next door neighbours eventually got quiet, we could hear someone snore in the room next to that.
The reception persons were polite and spoke good english, but didn't seem very interested in solving problems. For instance, when I tred to pay with a VISA debit card, I was informed that would cost me an extra 2,95 euros, but no one told me there was an ATM machine in the lobby in which I could have withdrawn the money with my VISA debit card.
Also it is important to note that the Internet access is free only in the lobby and bar. If you want Internet in your room, you need to pay (1 euro for 1 hour or 10 euros for 1 week).
In my trip we also used the conference room, which was nice, but everything we need was complicated: getting internet access, getting copies, etc. And the coffee break just included plain coffee and tea, absolutely nothing else.
