We stayed in a private room here in Feb 2009 and came away fairly satisfied. Our room was in the centre of the building (i.e. not on the main road) so it was quite quiet, apart from a little noise from other guests (not late). The room was comfortable and clean and quite nicely furnished (for a change!). It had free internet and reception staff were quite helpful.
The problem with this place is that there are only 2 shower rooms - 1 is over a bath and 1 is just a shower - plus one extra toilet (so 3 in total for the whole place). If someone has a bath then that leaves just one for everyone and it´s a real problem. If a (dorming) couple decides to have some "private time" in the bathroom for 30 minutes, followed by an inconsiderate man taking 25 minutes to have a shower in there, whilst the other one is occupied by an inconsiderate woman for 45 minutes, that leaves the rest of us with nothing. GRR! Don´t stay here and count on getting a shower AND catching a bus!
