I liked this hostel a lot, Hostels get a bad name, but this one was more of a hotel, just on a boat.
I booked the cheapest option on Hotels.Com and wasn't expecting much, but I was nicely surprised.
Within walking distance of Central Station, which was ideal considering I arrived to the city at about 20minutes past midnight, found it very easy to find and it was a stones throw away from the old town 2min walk.
I got a room with a bunk, writing table and chair with on-suite wet-room shower/toilet/sink, window, radiator (only problem with this boat is the paper thin walls and if you have rowdy neighbours, but that's the same with some hotels)
Reception managed 24hrs a day, with English speaking staff, very helpful and an array of cold foods sandwiches/Crisps/Chocolate and Canned drinks and water (water from the tap was drinkable)
All in all a very pleasant 3 days, would recommends highly
