Liked: I found the staff to be wonderful--friendly and helpful! There are great kitchen facilities and multiple communal areas. Also, it is a good location.

Disliked: The heating was minimum only kicking on during certain night hours with the rooms and common area going back to freezing by morning. Also, the hot water was inconsistent and both bathrooms and the bedrooms were not kept up well.

Liked: I liked its emplacement. It is true that it is on the top of a hill, but if you're young and have no health problems you shouldn't care about that. It's just 10-15 mins to city centre. I would recommend this place.

Disliked: Showers weren't as clean as possible -but they were ok- and you have to keep pushing a button in order to get water.

Liked: Convenient location and nice dorms. Breakfast not free but cheap and plentiful. Location great, just round the corner from bus station, friendly and helpful staff, halfprice at local pizzeria and discount off guineas at local pub,

Disliked: nothing about the property, only the hill is not for the faint-hearted - but most hostels are anyway up the hill...

Liked: Location was pretty good.

Disliked: Showers had automatic lights that shut off by themselves so you would be taking a shower and then it would go dark. The drains back up in the showers. A little on the dirty side. It's a big hostel though, you get what you pay for I guess. I would recommend this hostel, not for long term stays though.

Liked: Rooms were decent size and comfortable. The hostel is large and they offer breakfast for €3 which was toast, cereal, jam, tea, coffee and juice. You could get seconds so probably worth it. Staff helpful and provide you with maps and self-guided walking tours.

Disliked: Wifi only available downstairs and rooms were really hot. Showers aren't temperature adjustable and were scorching hot so we couldn't have a shower properly. You burn to death in the shower cubicle and no fan makes it steamy as so you almost pass out.

Liked: Paddy was an awesome host, very friendly, knowledgable and helpful. The value for money is brilliant and enjoyed my stay.

Disliked: The floor boards are a bit creaky and can hear people walking through the night, but is expected in an older building and rooms are on the smaller side, but value for money outweighs these.
