I found this place last minute due to a popular symposium going on that same weekend. At first I was a little skeptical, but wasn't too bad once settled. There is a gate on the outside, and you have to go up the stairs to access the hotel. Gates lock up after a certain hour (I think 9pm?), just ring the bell.
There's an open living area for socializing and wifi access. There's also a community kitchen if needed. I was in Rm 4, not directly facing the main street but near that direction. The room has a ceiling fan, a small TV, and 2 simple full-size clean beds. Bring your own towels and toiletries.
It's located right in the heart of town, so you can just step outside for tour operators, food and toiletries if needed. And because of this very reason, noise level from the bars nearby can be a bit disturbing for light sleepers. I kept the fan on at night to drown out the noise outside, but it wasn't too bad.
For the price (very very reasonable), the location, the convenience, it is certainly worth keeping in mind.
