The hostel seems to have just recently changed management and is kept very clean, infact the staff always seem to be cleaning (sometimes there seems to be no staff around due to their cleaning duties). Rooms are comfortable and very well equipped with lockers and ensuite bathroom in even the largest of dorm rooms.
Kitchen & common areas are very good and safe with lots of cctv cameras around to keep an eye on anyone who might get light fingered. Excellent laundry facilities and extra bathrooms on both floors.
The only downside i can see/hear is the location to the train tracks which alot of hotels in the area share a similar proximity. There also seems to be a problem with the key card access system but is safe because your card needs re-programming almost every day. Rooms near the bar on a busy night can get noisy but it is a hostel and not a hotel.
Other than that the place is faultless and well priced for the area.
