The hostel is very close to the train / bus station, which helps. There is no staff at the hostel, except of the cleaner, who comes for a few hours. Cheap hostel, but the rooms are very small and overcrowded. There are ONLY 2 toilets/bathrooms for the whole hostel. In busy time it take up to 2h to take a shower. The place is very, very basic and not very clean. I do not mind basic, but I would never come back to this place. YHA hostels aren't so close to the station, but clean, with nice service and great views.
