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.
