Ok and cheap hostel with great location
The hostel was ok for a couple of nights, the location is the best I would say. Staff is also helpful and friendly. The rooms are not the best; bathrooms were smelly and the shower was not good. I also found the layout of the 4-bed dormitory weird, as it's only one bunk bed and two single beds just besides each other, which is really awkward and not private at all if you are alone and with people you don't know in the room, as you are gonna sleep like if you are in a double bed with the person. If you are with family or friends, this might be good. I think it would be better if the shared rooms had only bunk beds, it gives you much more privacy. The price paid was really cheap though, so I'd say it's ok for few nights.

Adequate and good value
Excellent central location, noisy with groups of students but they seemed to settle down around 10pm. Staff mixed, cleaner left our room open 1st day so we put sign on door to not have them in again other days.

The stuff from the reception
The receptionist from the hotel didn't gave us an invoice from our staying... They told us that the site of should gave us the invoice. But I needed an official invoice from the hotel to show to my job. They didn't help us with this.

North Korean Owned
If the paperthin mattresses and rude customer service don't dissuade you from staying here then maybe the fact the hostel property is owned by the North Korean government will, sadly I found this out my last night...avoid at all cost!

Fair 4.0
a lovely nest you don't want to return to
Reception is the only positive thing left behind my stay there. There was someone's hair in the bed. The room itself was VERY poor with no heating and nasty howling through windows winter winds. ОЧЕНЬ УБОГО.
