Fantastic location, comfortable and spacious lounge, clean restrooms, decent beds...and a bargain price. This is what a hostel should be. Rooms are all named after country music stars. My floor had two private bathrooms, plus a large "group" facility. Also, in addition to the main lounge, my floor had a smaller, quiet living room to relax in. Kitchen with a huge refrigerator and all necessary dishes, pots, utensils, etc. Towels available; you can also get a load of laundry done. Free WiFi and also computers for a fee. Right by the River - walk to everything.
A couple of things would make this hostel exemplary - it would be very nice if the bedrooms had some hooks on the walls and a chair or two to sit on while getting dressed. Also, the bunk-beds are those metal ones, which tend to squeak whenever you turn over. And one last quibble - I wish they would lose those horrid plastic mattress covers.
But those are minor things. I would definitely stay here again.
