Liked: Location. You can get to O'Connelly St. in about 5 minutes, Busaras bus station is about 2 minutes away and getting to the Temple Bar area is about 10 minutes walking. Also,

Disliked: No hot water, the floor felt like it was going to cave in at any moment, the beds were stiff and the bunks squeaked so much you could wake up the neighbors. The shared bathrooms were a bit dirty. Also, some of the staff members acted like they were too busy to help. The breakfast could have been better and getting your breakfast was very disorganized since it's in a commercial kitchen.

Liked: The 'common room' was a very lively place that allowed me to meet other people and the bar garden was a great place to get cheap beer and Guinness with music. Good facilities and breakfasts. Helpful staff and rooms with key card access only.

Disliked: Some rooms are adjacent to a tram line that makes quite a bit of noise until 11pm and starts again at around 7am, so can be quite annoying.

Liked: Central, friendly, have a good meeting room and had a nice barbeque. Good value

Disliked: No lockers in rooms, a very loud young crowd doing party at the floors in front of the room in 3rd floor waked all up. Nobody cared about that and it lasted long.

Liked: Large hostel with some character. Rooms were relatively noisy as it is a happening neighbourhood.

Disliked: Housekeepers cleaned room and removed items whilst cleaning my bed. But fortunately they were recorded and stored in lost properly.

Liked: It was a pretty good location, only a few minutes walk from the center of town

Disliked: They didn't wash the doona covers. We watched them just remake the bed without washing them for new people to sleep in and also the kitchen wasn't very clean.
