As a solo traveller I think the most important thing for a hostel to have is a sense of community, and Showbiz has plenty of that. The staff are so helpful and friendly and were more than happy to answer all my questions about booking trips.
The view from the rooftop bar is amazing and you're more than likely to make a few friends up there. The location is fantastic too, right in the centre of town while still being peaceful.
My only criticism is there are no privacy curtains on the dorm beds, and the rooms are maybe a little basic but what more do you expect from a budget hostel? What it lacks in amenities it more than makes up for with character.
