Liked: Great place to stay, right in the middle of the city centre. Very quiet too.

Disliked: No hot water in the morning for showers. Maybe it was just my room.

Liked: Awesome location safe and secure. Loved it

Disliked: Couldn't get the window closed and it was really loud but that's just because we had a 4am flight and we're trying to sleep while everyone was enjoying the temple bar. Definitely NOT a deal breaker. Just some instructions on how to secure the skylight window or a latch on it would have been great.

Liked: Very centrally located, the included breakfast was very good and had a lot on offer. The offered free tour of the city was very interesting and presented many funny insider stories ;)

Disliked: There was a school class residing at the same time, which made the breakfast facilities very crowded.

Liked: Great location, easy to find. Even though right in the action, street noise was shut out with the windows closed and I slept really well. Power sockets for every bed. Staff pretty friendly and helpful. Breakfast standard and simple. Nice common areas.

Disliked: Cages under the beds are a bit annoying moving in and out and getting into. If someone is on the bottom bed it can also be difficult getting then out, which can be a bit awkward. There are a few hostel run events (free dinner on Monday, pub crawls), but could do with maybe a few other activities to help meet people.
