Liked: The location was excellent! Walking distance to great pubs and to the Main Street where you can get public transport. The room was on the small side but the beds were comfy and there was a place to lock up your valuables. Everything was kept clean.

Disliked: The room was a tad small and it was hard to get to the lockable trolley under my bed because it was in the corner of the room. But that's it!

Liked: The central location of this hostel is a great feature.

Disliked: Being centrally located also has its downsides though. In the middle of Temple Bar, the hostel is surrounded by some very active and loud bars. It can end up quite noisy in the evening starting around 9:30pm.

Liked: The facilities were clean, and it's very close to a lot of the major attractions.

Disliked: Because it was in the temple bar area there are a lot of bars and therefore it was quite noisy at night. Also, the windows didn't close properly.
