Aside from reading the reviews, the hostel replied very quickly on the inquiries I sent via email which was excellent They gave me the clearest direction to their place and it literally was very close to the train station. For a first timer like me (having travelled alone from Munich then Berlin!), I thought it was great. I did a short walk from the train station to the hotel which i found lovely and was greeted by a very nice staff (sorry forgot the name already...) and straight away was given a map and some quick tips on which places to go to, what I could do in the evening because i think i came late afternoon already. And then when it was time to go to my room, was surprised it was decent enough and spacious enough for the sole traveller that's me. An extra pillow would've been nice though! ;) There's quite a few T&B to share so at least that's less a hassle. What's nice is that they give you your own key into the hotel so you could practically come and go whenever you feel like it. I think business closes at 8pm but someone stays 'til late not for anything but just to hang around, in case somebody needs something. I didn't get to try the breakfast they offer as i went early morning for the walking tour. I stayed for 2 nights and have to stay, i had no issue whatsoever. Very ideal location, close to 2 stations and why did i forget to say that it's so walking distance from the small cafe and pubs for a glass of radler or two! :)
