Stayed for three nights in a dorm room. The setup of the room made it seemed a bit cramped and I wasn't too fond of it. Bathrooms were as clean as they could be with tons of others using them, but the halls always smelled a bit funky on the floor where we stayed like the fans weren't working properly.
Common area had big, comfy couches with a flat screen TV and wifi. The kitchen was a bit small for the size of the hostel, but we made do.
Good location. Literally right next to the bus station and a five minute walk from the rail station. A grocery store across the street. And don't forget to have some fish and chips at the store next door. They are to die for!!
Overall friendly staff and a good place to meet others.
