I stayed here for one night. It was hot (no air conditioning) and the place smelled a bit like sewage. The bathrooms were pretty gross. My dorm room was fine, but cramped and no lockers. The staff was friendly and helpful at least. Bar/terrace has a gorgeous view of the city, especially at night. Right as I got there, the staff was stopping some people from bringing in two twelve packs of beer. It appeared that this used to be a party hostel, but is no more. The place has an unlocked luggage room, which was a convenient, but very unsecured place for leaving stuff.
Getting there is easy. Take the funicular, get off at the roman theater and walk down hill for a few minutes.
