Liked: I especially liked the international, friendly and "young" atmosphere. It was also wonderful how helpful the staff was. We received a lot of great advice regarding trips and transportation and perfect support.It's also very nice that the hostel offers a common room and a big kitchen as well as recurring events like Spaghetti Monday and movie nights. :-)The location, of course, is also unbeatable.

Disliked: The building is very clairaudient and in spite of using earplugsat night we often still heard banging doors, people talking in front of our door and foot steps on the floor above us.Also, the water in the shower needs to be turned up very far to become warm and the water jet thus is really, really hard.

Liked: Very clean and well-kept. Staff were extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Fantastic location right in the centre of Temple Bar. Plug socket was in a good place in relation to the mirror which a lot of hostels seem to overlook for girls getting ready for nights out!!

Disliked: Our room was on the front side of the building and there was a lot of noise - not sure if the windows were double glazed or not but it would have been good to have some more sound-proofing.The common room and kitchen are on the 1st and 2nd floor and are locked after a certain time at night which means there is nowhere to sit if you come back after a late night out (this is probably due to the shape and size of the building though so can't really be helped). However when we asked, the man on the front desk let us sit on a staircase towards the back of the hostel which we thought was really helpful of him.
