All in all, it's good, way abo....
The location is perfect and the place is pretty clean (I guess they read the reviews here), we booked a "comfort room" meaning that we had the room for ourselves. The room was spacious, no more furniture than needed and the bed was very comfortable.
The hostel looks like a reconstructed attic, the work was nicely done but there are some problems with the project and execution. The whole place is made of drywall, and you can hear everything everywhere, specially doors opening and closing, that woke us up more than a couple of times during the night. The bathrooms - i.e. the shower place - are really tinny, and its an impossible task not to get water everywhere. The shower itself could use a little cleaning of the limescale so it wont spray water all over the place. Anyway, some stuff bothered me, but maybe that's just me getting old.

Don't stay there!!!
I slept on the top bunk and when i woke up the first thing i saw was a bunch of bed bugs walking on the ceiling and walls - this is totally unacceptable, i am 100% sure staff is aware of that and i don't understand how they can let people sleep there! Me and my friends got bitten everywhere. Hostel has also a few other issues like cold water in the shower, dirty toilets, stinky fridge- but it's still nothing comparing to the bed bugs problem. Generally staff was nice and hostel has a nice, homey atmosphere so it could be a really nice place to stay, if the management would care. Unfortunately at the moment i do not recommend.

Not reliable, but not bad
I stayed here three years ago and since then not a lot has changed, except for the price has gone up and the level of service has gone down. Breakfast is not longer included. Printer does not work. Extra charge for a locker is 2€ per day. The reception is closed from 10PM to 9:15AM. In case of loud and drunk guests you have to address this problem yourself.
What I missed most in this hostel was care. Care for keeping the place clean(especially the toilet area). The central location also means they attract a lot of guests with bad behavior. Difficult for them, but also for other guests. Staff is generally friendly and helpful. Beds are comfortable and the communal space is comfortable with pleasant seats and tables.
The receptionist caused me a lot of stress as she had to collect the keys and return my passport. Without it I would have missed my plane. She was supposed to be there at 9:00AM, but turned up at 9:15AM. Unreliable! So make sure you return the keys before 10PM and do not go out anymore after that, if you want to be at ease in case you leave in the morning.

Worst hostel ever!
Don't stay here! This is the worst hostel I ever stayed. Actually, it shouldn't call hostel. It's just a small and smell attic. The picture totally different from what they show in booking.com. There is no locker. The bed is suck, the liner is dirty and unwashed. I feel unsafe and uncomfortable when staying here.

Worst hostel ever!!
We've been here just for one night (thanks God!) and we made the mistake of booking without reading the reviews. It's not a hostel, it's like a messy apartment in the roof floor. We've stayed in a double room where the carpet was dirty, bathrooms and showers are really dirty as well. All the cleaning products, sheets and hostel stuff is around the common area (they could have thought about putting it in a closet). In the website it says 'breakfast included' but they don't serve it at all. The walls are so thin that you can hear everything in the apartment.
The receptionist was polite but quite cold, and always talking by phone really loud so we could hear him while trying to sleep. They don't give you a map or any info.
So, please avoid this place!!
