I stayed here for 2 nights on my own. On the positive side, it is a fairly handy location, being 15 mins walk into the town, and 5 mins from the train and main bus station. Also on the plus side, I booked a shared room but had a very spacious private room to myself.
My arrival was problem free, I was greeted by a quiet couple who didn't appear to want to answer any questions I had about where to eat/visit etc.
The bathroom was not great., it was spacious but the toilet was filthy. The shower was ok.
The first major problem I had was when I went out and returned to the hostel around midnight, my building front door key clearly did not work. I tried buzzing but had no response. After 20 mins of standing alone and quite concerned on the street by myself, someone (not connected to the hostel) finally entered the building and let me in. There was noone in the hostel when I got upstairs. There was noone in the hostel the next morning when I woke up, or the next afternoon when I got back from siteseeing, so I could not speak to anyone about my key, in fact I felt like I may have been the only person in the whole hostel which was unnerving. The same problem happened when I got back that night, I couldn't get in again and had to stand on my own on the street for half an hour.
The morning I went to check out the owner was quite hostile, he didn't even end his phone conversation to check me out. He accused me of not closing the hostel door (even though I distinctly remember doing it as the door slammed quite loudly - he said he had proof on his security camera), and then told me there was no problem with my key, I just didn't know how to use it properly.
Stay somewhere else.
