If you only want to party and sleeping is not important for you, you can book this hostel!
The hostel is cheap, central and suitable for young party people. The bar in the basement is playing music extremely loud until at least thre o'clock at night. People walking around on the corridors and shouting. You can't even think of closing your eyes and having a nice sleep. It is impossible! To be fair, the hostel was cleaner than other hostels. There seem to be "real" cleaning staff and not backpackers staying in the hostel for free and cleaning it as often seen in other locations. All in all, I would never book this hostel again. But if you are after a cheapens central place to stay and don't mind the noise, it's a good choice.

Good location, but terribly noisy
I booked a single room ($45) which was in 4th floor. It was moderately okey, but felt like a room in prison. Each floor has a separate section for shower rooms and toilets. Amenities were very old, nevertheless clean. Reception guy was bit rude for me, however he provided an iron when I requested it. Please be careful, when you do check-in in late night, since check-out time is 10 AM on following day. (I saw different checkout time (2pm), when I surf rooms through ). I didn't use wifi, so don't have an idea about that. I couldn't sleep till early morning, because there was a party and people were shouting in ground floor, or somewhere around. Hotel locates in the middle of the city. Central station is in walking distance. I have a mix feeling about the hotel, so don't recommend for long stays.
