Liked: Location is great, staff are excellent, rooms are comfortable and well apportioned, the communal spaces are lovely and the wifi works well.

Disliked: Staying on the top bunks directly under the kitchens was quite an experience - from 5:30 am, thundering footsteps, appliance bangs and general cooking bustle jolted us out of our sleeps - we're not the type to complain, but we asked to move to the bottom bunks - my travelling companion was directly underneath the dishwasher, and it was deafening. Apart from the noise, though, the hostel is great.

Liked: Beds were separated using walls which made the space feel more private, staff were very accommodating, and a nice outdoor terrace off the kitchen where you could eat.

Disliked: Top bunk is very high off the ground, and the guard rail isn't very big! The kitchen is also not very well equipped (ie. no spatula).

Liked: The staff were so unbelievably kind. David is the nicest man I've ever met, he took care of us so well. The hostel was a great value for money. Good location as well. I would absolutely come back.

Disliked: Only downside is a lack of bathrooms and outlets but that was doable as soon as we got used to it.

14 March 2014 Kimberley would recommend this property

Liked: Really well located, incredibly clean, and one of the most comfortable hostel beds I've stayed in. But the standout factor was the staff. Every single member of staff I spoke to was friendly, professional, and welcoming. When I requested to change rooms from an unexpectedly male dominated mixed room to a girls only dorm, there was no eye rolling or judgemental looks, just genuine concern and an apology that I didn't feel comfortable (when really it was my fault!) and a 2 minute turnaround on finding me a new bed. The professionalism and general manner of the staff was an absolute delight.I cannot put into words how much of a difference it makes when every single member of staff is friendly and approachable. If I am ever in Dublin again, I would never think of booking anywhere else.

Disliked: Kimberley left no negative feedback.

Liked: Great location, staff was really nice and helpful, and bed were changed daily.

Disliked: The bathroom was fairly dirty, they were cracks in the door in the bathroom that led outside (allowing cold air to flow into the room), there weren't hooks to lock up stuff for each bed, and all but one outlet in the room was broken!!

Liked: The location was amazing- extremely close to the bus station (the best way to travel round Ireland without personal transport) with supermarkets close by. The building was beautiful and large, and there was a communal area for socialising. The staff were really nice. The rooms were clean and comfortable, but had 1 room with both the shower and toilet in per 8 guests. A washing machine and drier were also available for 4 and 3 euros. WIFI IN ROOM. I recommend Globetrotters

Disliked: No kitchen available
