We had a quick stop over here as part of a backpacking trip and it was all round fine. Its a very large hostel, with several floors. There is a big area on the ground floor for breakfast, and a seating area with a projector screen. World cup games were being shown. It seemed to be well equipped with facilities such as laundry and a bar, however we didn't make use of anything as we were only staying one night. The location was fine. There is a tram and bus stop nearby and we found our way to and from the city centre without much of a problem.
The atmosphere is a lot quieter and more formal than some of the other hostels we stayed in. We didn't speak to other travellers while we were there unlike in other hostels. It felt like the type of place you would stay in on a school trip or with another large group. Don't go expecting a party!
We stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm which was clean except for few discarded crisps on the mattress. We were given linen to make our own beds on arrival. The lights and plugs by each bunk are a nice touch. There were large lockers in the room and also by reception so you can leave your bags before/after you have access to your room. The bathrooms were all the way down the corridor but were quiet and clean. The breakfast was the best on our trip. Loads of choice - several cereals, yoghurt, fruit, cold meat, cheese, a selection of bread and spreads and real tea and coffee! The highlight of the stay after eating a lot of poor food on our travels.
