Liked: Good location, free walking tours.

Disliked: Bed's not comfortable, pillows can't be described as pillows, had to fold it in half just to get some height. Showers very poor, hot water tap on hand sink didn't work.

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.

Liked: The staff were so helpful and friendly, particularly the reception staff, who went the extra mile to help me! They made all the difference to the stay. The location was only a 5 minute walk from the city centre. Received a free room upgrade. Was very happy with the upgrade!

Disliked: The breakfast was quite basic but they added unexpected extras like chocolate spread, honey and hot chocolate!

Liked: The location.

Disliked: The bedroom (at least the one I stayed in) was way too small for so many people, and was always stinking. Taking a hot water shower was a matter of luck, and I managed to do so only 1 in 5 attempts. The staff was nice, but not particularly helpful. The hostel misses character.

Liked: The property is clean, tidy & well-presented. It is well situated close to the city centre. I was only staying 1 night & for 20 euros it was good value for money. I would recommend it to friends at that price but no higher. Overall a vgood experience.

Disliked: The room was chilly & I could find no sign of heat even though it was December. No chair in room even though there was a desk & desklamp. No glass (plastic or otherwise) to rinse after cleaning teeth. The individual toilet cubicles would have benefited from a toilet-brush. The free breakfast was very poor, consisting mostly of tea/coffee, bread & jam. No orange juice, no cornflakes, no marmalade, no fruit - you get what you pay for & in this case it amounted IMHO to very little. This is especially disappointing when there is a fully functioning cafe alongside the hostel.
