Not hard at all.
The front set are very easy to get at the rears are best accessed from the passenger side of the car.
Tuck your left arm down over the alternator and hand tools/parts down with your right, lay all your stuff out on the rad for easy reach.
The metal boot protectors might be a bear to get off but with a twist and quick jerk they usally pop off. If its real stubron you will a flat bladed screw driver and a gentle touch to pry them off.

Removing some of the engine hoist brackets can free up some space back there too.
