We stayed two nights here. Arrived late but it wasn't a problem, the man on reception was friendly and checked us in and gave us all the info we needed. It's a 10euro cash deposit for your wristband which gives you access to the hostel, your room, and your locker in your room.
The lockers are fantastic! They were so big that I could fir my whole pack in there and there was still a bit of room for loose things. We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm, and were lucky to have really friendly roomies. The rooms have aircon units, but we had the window open most of the time anyway. Watch your head if you get a bottom bunk, as there isn't enough room to sit up! Standard Ikea bunks though. Room and bathroom were both really clean. The ladies bathroom on our floor had 3 toilets and 3 showers in it. They're push the button showers so you have to keep pushing them to get the water flowing which is a little annoying, but it's only a small thing, and the pressure was good.
There are laundry facilities on level 6 - buy tokens for reception for 3euros per machine, and powder for 0.50c. The dryer on the right didn't dry our stuff properly so not sure what's going on with that, but use the left one if you can!
Breakfast between 8 and 10 in the mornings, cereal, toast, juice, coffee etc all available for free.
There is a gym if you are into that, and there is luggage storage available until 8pm on the day you check out. Plenty of walking tours, pub entries, meals etc organised there too.
Overall we had a good stay here and would definitely recommend it.
