Located on the 7th floor (have €0.05 for the lift), it's a bright, sociable place with multicoloured dorms, a cute in-house bar (with €3 cocktails between 8pm and 11pm), and a few floors down a series of hotel-standard private rooms, a couple with private bathroom.
Extras include a laundry service for stays of over four days.
