Liked: Location and friendly staff.

Disliked: Very hot on the top floor even with windows open and there was a really loud noise from the roof like a generator that woke us up a few times in the night. Mentioned it to staff but didnt know what it was. will not affect all rooms.

Liked: The location was great, the rooms were spacious and the beds were comfortable.

Disliked: During our one night stay there was a large group of French school children who occupied most of the first floor. This group was extremely loud and obnoxious, slamming doors, banging on doors and yelling in the hallways and their rooms extremely late into the night. Neither their treachers or the staff at the hostel attempted to quiet them down in order for the other guests to get some rest. Furthermore, the fire alarm went off four times during the night. All together my sleep at this hostel was without a doubt the worst sleep I have ever had in any hostel during my travels.Also, a word or warning, the hostel pre-authorized a $50 fee on my credit card before arrival as a bond without informing me in any way. This might be an issue for some who don't have large credit limits - still waiting for the charge to be canceled six days later...

Liked: Great location in behind the Temple Bar.

Disliked: As it was summer, we had to sleep with the windows open and could hear the music and people at the Temple Bar (I'm assuming).
