I stayed here for around 16 nights during the Film Festival. Considering that I only payed 10€ per night (including breakfast) I'm very happy with what I got for my money.
The long stay dorm is quite nice, especially as you'll get a bunkbed with a curtain to yourself...a bit of privacy is always nice.
The facilities are ok, a bigger bathroom would've been nice but - hey, it's cheap!
The same goes for breakfast, there was always plenty of toast, coffee, tea and jams and it was enough to get you started for the day.
The common area is great - many tables, chairs, sofas - great to hang out, have dinner and relax. They don't have a proper kitchen but there's a microwave and kettle so you won't starve to death.
And the best about the hostel are the volunteers working there! They're so welcoming and helpful :)
To sum it up: it is cheap but it's a decent place to stay (and it's clean!) - I've had a lot worse when I payed more.... and, it's close to the city centre, you can easily walk everywhere.
