Liked: Basically what you would expect from a hostel. Clean. Breakfast ain't much but better than nothing (cornflakes, toast, juice/coffee).Bathrooms very clean in contrast to some older posts. Staff seemed friendly enough to me.Tip: Instead of paying 6 euros for the aerobus or whatever from the airport, take the 41 dublin city bus from the airport for 2.65 euros to LAS stop (little abbey street?) and walk 1.5 blocks.

Disliked: Train rumbles by until about 1am. Can be an issue I guess. Have to pay for locker.

Liked: The location is excellent, 5 minutes walk from O'Connell Street and 10 minutes from Temple Bar. Also very easy to find when arriving in the city from the Airport. A Clean and Safe hostel with a hearty breakfast every morning and most conveniently free WiFi. A lovely basement with various activities.

Disliked: The beds are a bit creaky and matreses are a bit thin.

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.
