We checked into the hostel on the 12th of June and found the reception staff to be very friendly. The prices we paid were completely justified by the cleanliness and the ample sizes of the room.
A kitchen with two refrigerators, 4 cooking plates and lots of cutlery and pans, pots etc was available for free use. The hallways were bright and nicely decorated and so were the rooms. For a hostel providing cheap accommodation, this was the type that would be on the higher end. The reception was 24x7 with no curfew and every incomer had to show a pass on the camera in order for the door to open which proved to be a good security measure. The rooms had security boxes which could be used against a deposit and so were the extra key cards.
However there were some things that I found missing/unpleasant.
The bathroom/toilet for men was common which gave birth to stink in the entire complex as there were no exhaust fans. The water in the taps and the shower was most of the time warm/hot which was unacceptable provided the German temperatures in June. There was no availability of drinking water (except paid) and one had to fill the bottles from the sink which spat out boiling water at times. The bathrooms were cleaned every morning but due to constant use, they became dirty after a short period of time and could be cleaned at least twice a day.
There could have been more mirrors as the only ones present were in the bathroom.
All in all I found the experience to be satisfying.
