True minimum hostel
Hotels.com didn't mention it bring in red light district. With no Ac, had to leave windows open so we could listen to the drunks on the street all nite!

circumstances made it difficult
We did not stay while we expected as Americans to have TV in the room. The mattress was too thin, while my husband could not sleep due to back pain. But the service and the lobby were very friendly and understood our situation after 1 1/2 on the plane/airports. If it would be possible we'd like to get refunded for the not taken stay, due to that we had to take another hotel within walking distance and spend another 50 EUR onto that. But the Hostel itself wasn't able to refund us the already paid money.

A positive experience! I recommend this hostel :)
The staff was very friendly, and staying in a room with five strangers went better than I thought it might. Everyone tried to be as respectful to each other as possible, so I was pleasantly surprised. There was also a reception room with a bar and free tea and coffee, and it was pretty cool to meet people from all walks of life there. The neighborhood was a little sketchy due to strip clubs and brothels, but I felt safe walking to the hostel 2 or 3 blocks from the train station (I'm a woman). Additionally, the hostel is secure (they have to buzz you in to the reception room and then buzz you through another door to get to the sleeping quarters). The room I shared with the others was very clean, and the bathrooms were also very clean. All in all, a good experience.

Dirty room, not so tasteful location, bad staff
It's in the red light district, but of course you aren't told until you pay (I guess it's my fault). The receptionist treated us like we were children, forcing us to listen to what is essentially the same spiel at any other hotel (i.e. he told us we need to open the door to go to the elevator, then repeated told me to turn around and look at the door before he was satisfied). The place is a hostel, so it's not very clean. My washroom's wall had snot and human fluids splattered everywhere. The washroom also smells of sewage backup. On the plus side, the do offer some freebies (i.e. free pasta on some nights) but I didn't think it was worth my time or really, anyone else's. In case you think I sound like a whiny traveller, I've lived in teahouses in Nepal and have found it more sanitary and pleasant than this place. You've been warned.
