Three friends and myself visited the Fortuna hostel in January 2013 for four nights. The hostel was very easy to find, and less than ten minutes walk from the train/bus station. The old town was less than five minutes walk away. The hostel is very close to the train tracks and train noises can be heard, but I didn't find it too loud or distracting, and trains are quite infrequent.
Our room was a four bed dorm, with each bed having its own bedside table and lamp. There was a portable heater in the room as well, keeping the room nice and toasty for when we returned from the freezing cold! We had a shared bathroom/shower room that was located just outside our room and was essentially our own as no other dorm rooms were near to ours.
The hostel had a large reasonably equipped kitchen that had tea and coffee facilities freely available. Furthermore the downstairs basement featured a games room with table football, table tennis and pool (passport or room key as deposit for balls and cues). Free wi-fi was available throughout the hostel and there were four computers in the basement connected to the internet.
The hostel staff were polite and friendly, spoke excellent English and helpful at dispensing advice. Overall an excellently valued hostel that is well worth staying at if you are travelling on a budget.
