About the room: it was clean, sheets look a bit old but still felt clean. The room itself was pretty warm, in fact even though it was icy cold outside, the whole hostel was quite warm because they had amazing heaters.

Electric plugs: There were a few throughout the room, right next to the bed!

Room lockers: There were big lockers in the room, just bring your own lock and whatever you do don't lock it and leave the key some people might do...
Just in case though reception had bolt cutters!!!

Room quietness: There are no bars nearby so no outside noise, it was pretty quiet the night I stayed. 

Shower & bathroom cleanliness:
I would say both bathroom and showers were very clean and there were a few to choose from.
There was hot water in shower and water pressure was nice and strong. yum.

Bathroom amenities (hair drier, paper towels): None

Communal spaces:
There were plenty of communal spaces, lounge with big sofas, kitchen for cooking your cup ramen. Also some outdoor seats and a pool table.

Recommend it Yes or No?
Yes, its cheap, and I think it's pretty good quality for the price. Go for it!
