Busy but Comfortable
It is a large city centre hostel, spread out over a large area in a big building, busy but friendly. The dorm was only for 4 people and was spacious and comfortable. Large pleasant lounge area, and a good public bar open in the evenings. Decent buffet breakfast for 5 euro. Very fast internet throughout. The location could not be more central, with dozens of restaurant on the doorstep, and all of the city's attractions an easy walk away.

Cheap but nice hostel
The room and the ensuite is nice and clean, free breakfast is fair too. However the room is facing all the bars and restaurants which could be really loud at night unless you close your windows (but it's so hot!) there's free coffee and tea, a big lounge area too. It's right next to the Market as well so the location is great!

Happy Enough that I’d Stay Again
The location is great, the staff was nice, they offer towels and locks for a deposit (nicer than charging extra), luggage storage was free, and the WiFi was fast, and the room and bathroom were clean. My only complaints are: 1) the hallway is an echo chamber and anytime someone is walking or talking you can hear them—which was especially frustrating after midnight and in the early morning; and 2) Some from the courtyard comes into the room—even as a smoker this was not ideal imo and neither is closing the windows on a humid day. But overall, I would easily recommend this location.
