I stayed in this hostel for 5 weeks. Met some amazing friends and had a really good time. The hostel is in a central location right next to the train station making it easy to get around. There is a large communal area and kitchen that is well equipped. I paid in week blocks getting the breakfast included offer which was really good value. The hostel it's self is not the cleanest, bathrooms just cleaned by being hosed down, our bedroom got vacuumed once in my entire stay...by me!! The female staff really ruined this stay for me and the other girls I met, they're rude, unhelpful and only interested in speaking to the male guests. The lady at breakfast never even spoke to myself or any of the 6 girls I met here and 2 of the reception staff used to drink on night shifts and play pool with male guests till the early hours being very loud. Would I stay in the hostel again? Yes but only for the location...
