Liked: My friend and I booked 2 beds in a 4 women room and ended up in a twin room: a pleasant surprise. Room was very well furnished. Located near the train station, supermarkets and food places. Check in and out were quick. Quiet neighborhood.

Disliked: No wifi in the rooms. Room was super dusty.

Liked: The rooms have private bathrooms and a small kitchen. The sauna is nice, and free. The location is good, walking distance to many sites.

Disliked: I did not get the room I booked. I booked a bed in a 4-bed room, but was placed in a 2-bed room (and the other person only showed up two days later, leaving me alone in a seemingly empty dorm building - a bit creepy). There is also no wifi in the room, and the main desk was often packed with people checking into other buildings.

Liked: As I was running the marathon it offered a convenient location to the event but also was close to the town centre for all the other days of my trip. It was also very quiet and comfortable with good provision for cooking and storing my own food.

Liked: Spacious room. Comfortable bed.

Disliked: Having no wifi, but having internet if you "rent" a cable for it is insulting to the traveler's IQ.No bin in the toilet.
