I stayed with 2 friends at this hostel - we were the only guests in the hostel at the time. We arrived earlier than check in time and wanted to leave our luggage there, but the hostel was locked. We tried to ring the doorbell but no one opened. When we returned later in the day, the receptionist assured us that the hostel was not locked and had been attended earlier in the day, which was not true.
The rooms are dark and the hostel is cold in the winter months. There is no heating, and there is a warning sign in the bathroom that the hot water may run out after a 5 minute shower.
The good things about the hostel are the cleanliness and location. This is a decent choice for a short stay, but don't expect luggage store before or after your stay
