The hostel itself is very clean, the location is close to downtown, but I was warned about getting robbed outside on the streets (even during the day) around the hostel. Just be cautious and you will be fine. You HAVE TO write a review before getting wifi access which is before you have even spent any time at the hostel. The staff also likes to show you the proper way to wash dishes, ect. even if you are in your late 20's, which can be annoying. Outside pool is nice, there is a great social atmosphere. Tons of Germans who are working in the area live here.
