Liked: Stayed before, does what it says on the tin, ideal for weekends watching the Rugby and Soccer, who needs all the comforts of home when a bed and somewhere to wash is all that is needed!!

Liked: It was the perfect location! The Temple Bar area is a little touristy, but it's not hard to walk the all the major attractions in the city. Also there's no curfew and there's always a staff member so you can get in and out whenever and checkout at 3 in the morning.

Disliked: Typical hostel things. If you stay in a room with 10 people there will the strangers there and chances are they will wake you up at some point. In that sense, you get what you pay for.

Liked: Fabulous location, literally right next door to Temple Bar. The staff is on duty 24/7 and so helpful! The hostel provided so many options for things to do in and around dublin. I don't think I ever felt provided with so many things to do in a city I visited (a number of tours, sightseeing opportunities, and pub crawls). Included breakfast was good and community lounge was very nice.

Disliked: It was a little difficult having just one toilet and shower for 10 people in the dorm room.

Liked: You can't get any closer to the nightlife area. It is located right next to Temple Bar in the Temple Bar district. It's your average hostel. Lots of travellers, lots of opportunity to meet people, clean, friendly staff, and lots of good times.

Disliked: You can hear loud music coming from Temple Bar and lots of drunk people on the street until early morning. I didn't mind it though, just stay out all night and it won't be a problem! haha

Liked: Absolutely loved this place, me and my friend stayed there for 4 nights. Were a bit dubious as neither of us had stayed in a hostel before. I can honestly say it's one of the best places I've stayed in, it was right in the centre of Temple Bar, you meet so many different people as you have a common room and kitchen to socialise in. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly, we asked them so many questions and they always tried to help us out and the beds and general cleanliness are fine- it's a place to stay, you can't be fussy. Definitely going back there. Miss that place already!!!
