Liked: In a nice location close to some attractions and not far from the city centre. The staff was super-friendly and enthusiastic to help. The rooms and facilities were very clean upon check-in and tidied each day. The breakfast was simple, but not bad, and the beds are decently comfortable. There's even a bicycle hire and free walking tours starting from the hostel itself.

Disliked: Small pillows

Liked: I am already living in Ireland and i knew about this hostel before and they happened to have a single room at the most reasonable price that i can afford. Also personally prefer south area of Dublin city centre, I feel more safer than in North. Honestly, the room was very tiny but really clean.

Disliked: I stayed in just one night. So i didn't have that much time to run into some dislike things. Although... toilet and shower facilities were for both gender. I didn't have any problem but that was the only thing made me go 'what?' at the first time when i saw it.

Liked: Great location with really friendly staff!

Disliked: The washrooms could have been a bit cleaner. However, I realize that we were there on what was likely one of the busiest weekends of the year (St. Patrick's Day) so it could have just been the high amount of traffic.
