Being located within 150m of the train station was a major plus for me. 20min walk to the beach could be cut short by the tram for €1,50 per ride or a day pass for €5.
Rooms were quite serviceable. Mine had large cages under the beds for secure storage, with locks available from the front desk for a deposit. Bathroom was a little grungy, but not too bad.
They offer spaghetti nights often (every other night?) for 3 euro, great value and a great way to meet fellow travelers.
One problem: when I was assigned a room upon checking in, I wasn't assigned a bed. I just took one. But everyone else seemed to have a bed number assigned. Overall, the staff doesn't really seem to care that much. There are posted signs all over the lobby telling us that we should leave our keys at reception while we're out of the hostel. However, nobody ever actually asked me to do so, and the one time I did it anyway, on return they just gave me the room key without any verification of who I was or what room I was in. So, lock up your stuff in those great cages, because security at the desk is quite lax.
