We booked Maverick as an emergency when we realised our flights and hotel dates didn't match. We took a private double room with en suite, which was pretty good value at about £45.
Reception were friendly and helpful, and our room was good - high-ceilinged, quite large, with TV, fan, and nice bathroom. In the heat we could've done with A/C, but the fan was better than nothing. Each floor has a little kitchen with coffee maker, fridge, and free tea and coffee. The room was basic - a bed, a chest and a shelf, but totally sufficient. It's not luxury, but as hostels go this was clean, well-organised, quiet and friendly. We didn't make use of them, but there were regular events, tours, pub crawls, cooking parties etc on offer, and the rest of the people we saw there seemed to have been having a good time.
We then went off to our 4* hotel, and to be honest, for the price difference and great central location, I'd rather have stayed on at Maverick.
(note: It's not immediately easy to find, but look out for signs near the metro stop.)
