Liked: The central location of this hostel is a great feature.

Disliked: Being centrally located also has its downsides though. In the middle of Temple Bar, the hostel is surrounded by some very active and loud bars. It can end up quite noisy in the evening starting around 9:30pm.

Liked: The facilities were clean, and it's very close to a lot of the major attractions.

Disliked: Because it was in the temple bar area there are a lot of bars and therefore it was quite noisy at night. Also, the windows didn't close properly.

Liked: Felt very secure, was clean and great kitchen and chill out areas.

Disliked: Breakfast was only toast. I was expecting the option of cereal, as someone who can't eat Gluten I was expecting to have something for breakfast and didn't. If you can't provide cereal maybe just specify what is available for breakfast.

Liked: great bed. amazing bed. phenomenal bed. so comfortable! This is a great hostel. the staff are very helpful. the location is amazing - right in the middle of all the night life. Super markets and convenience stores are close too. There is a great common and kitchen area for chilling out. Though there is not much of a party atmosphere in the hostel (nothing organised) - all the pubs and pubcrawls are just outside!

Disliked: i kept missing the breakfast - should be an all day thing ;)
