True to the name, this hostel IS incredibly well-located. Right outside the door are all the main downtown attractions, not to mention metro stops (well-connected to airport), the long pedestrian street and TONS of cute cafes, bakeries and restaurants.
However, be aware that this is a very social, party hostel and WILL be loud on Friday and Saturday night (if not more). If you are looking for this, perfect! If you are a solo traveler wanting to meet others, this might be a good place to come -- there are free dinners every night (but you have to get there early to snag a seat) followed by a buzzing pub scene. There are big cushions out front and all sorts of tables and seating areas, so if you want to meet people, you can do it. The place is well decorated and has won all sorts of hostel prizes.
On the other hand, this is probably not the hostel to book if you want some tranquility or quiet. Even at midnight (on a Friday night, granted), we had to push our way through to reception and yell to be heard. Even up in the rooms you could hear the sound from below.
The large dorm rooms were nothing to write home about -- bunkbeds were creaky and there wasn't much floor-space for bags, but these are all things that I usually take with a grain of salt as a part of the hostel experience...
Overall I would recommend this hostel, but just brace yourself for some noise and embrace the socializing.
