Liked: The location is second to none. You literally couldn't sleep any closer to Temple Bar unless it was on the street! Rooms were clean, spacious, balcony overlooking Temple Bar street. Private bathroom which was clean and hot shower. Key card entry which made it safe and baggage storage when arriving/departing. Would recommend to any friends going to Dublin.

Disliked: The room only had a light at one end which did make it a little dark. The staff were good but a couple who weren't the friendliest. All hostels I stay in usually have a great vibe from young staff who are looking to help you, one blonde female member seemed a bit tired and stressed and wasn't very friendly. The dark haired Irish guy and English girl were awesome, we are all here to have fun and I appreciate a friendly reception!

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.
