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.
