Absolutely PERFECT location in the Old City and staff were really friendly and helpful.
Other than that, I'd probably say stay away from this one unless you're not at all worried about what your bed's like for the night.
My girlfriend and I stayed 3 nights in a double room and one in a triple room. The triple room was draughty and I had to block up gaps in the door of the room to stop the cold getting in (we were there in winter and it was quite cold at night, especially as our room was located on the upper floor and exposed to the wind. Wouldn't be so bad in summer I guess.
There's no heating but we were able to get extra blankets from reception which made for a warm night. Hot water was sometimes not available until the water heating kicked in (which I think they had turned off during the day). The showers were TERRIBLE in both rooms. Pokey,dirty, no curtain...we had a squeegy for the floor to help clear up the water.
Our stay was nothing to rave about and we'd look for another hostel to stay at if we ever went back to stay in the Old City.
