I stayed at this hostel for a week in a four-bed dorm. For the price in the off season (After Aug 31), I thought it was fine and the location right on the main street is perfect. It does get noisy and they do play loud music until 1 AM on weekdays and later on weekends, however they offer free earplugs at the front desk.
The 4th floor kitchen was available for anyone on any floor, so I am not sure why people in other reviews mention that its only available for those on the 4th floor. Myself and a couple of my room mates used the kitchen on several occasions.
Staff were helpful in both the reception and bar area and I enjoyed the drink specials from 4-8.
