I stayed in an 8-bed dorm with some friends just before we started work on a summer program. Overall, it's an average hostel. The kitchen was clean, the bathrooms had hot water, and there was even a pool and I believe free computers and internet. The atmosphere was good, as well as the staff. The only downside is the sound of the nearby train that went through extremely frequently and blew a horn each time. Earplugs are a must here.
