Liked: The location was great and the guys working behind the bar in the evening were terrific. In fact, that really was the only saving grace.

Disliked: It was very noisy. Traffic, noise from music and people at street level. The bunks shook any time someone in any of 6 beds moved. There wasn't really any space for bags when the room was full. In general, the rooms were cramped, it was impossible to sleep, and despite being above a pub - it just wasn't a very social atmosphere.
