If you are wanting cheap accommodation, this is the place to stay. However the money you save on the hostel is made up by the money spent on the train. It is a 2.5km walk into the city centre, so location is not fantastic.
The room are clean, but there are nos n wash basins. One shower room per floor is not good when you have 30 people or more per floor. Also, the rooms are extremely warm, and one fan does not make a difference.
Other than that, the people are friendly, breakfast is decent and it's very close to a train station.
