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

Liked: The only good thing about this hostel was the location.

Disliked: -advertised high speed internet, clearly wasn't the case, for the first two days i was there it barely worked. -staff were pretty rude and unfriendly -Advertised they had secure lockers when all they really had was a locked room that only staff could access, and even then they said they weren't responsible for stolen goods.

Liked: Nice hostel, staff a bit abrupt, but friendly overall. The area is not so nice, but very close to O'Connell street and Connolly Station/ Busaras. 10-15 minute walk to Temple Bar and around the corner from a Tesco express.

Disliked: Area wasn't so nice, and the wifi seemed to cut out randomly.
