Liked: The staff were friendly and helpful. Loved the cheap beer in the beer garden, great atmosphere and easy to meet people. The hostel also organises events like BBQ, walking tour and pub crawl. Nice, clean rooms, late checkout too.

Disliked: Breakfast finishes at 9:30, too early! And the showers are like prison showers; you have to push the button on the shower every 5 seconds, water flows from the top to bottom and there is nowhere to put your things. No lockers at all!

Liked: Quite clean, good common areas.

Disliked: Nothing is working well, from 3 computers only one working, sauna was bronken, some machines from laundry was bronken, one vending machine was broken.. The bedroom is near the rail, so its very noise sometimes. The bed its small, about my size, 1,80m. I dont my to press the buttom to shower but one shower turns off every 3 seconds..

Liked: Good location right by the central bus station. They have HUGE lockers in the basement, so you don't have to take your big bag all the way up to your room, plus they let me leave my bag while I traveled for a few days, which saved me a lot of hassle.

Disliked: nothing

Liked: Lots of character to the building, both interior and exterior. The lobby and basement in particular had a rustic appeal. Ideally located to reach O'Connell Street and Trinity College. Wide range of facilities and services on offer; incredible value for €16.50.

Disliked: Because of the thin walls, noise does tend to carry.

Liked: The hotel staff was friendly and helpful.

Disliked: Apart from the hostel not having my reservation, the place was enormous with very few showers. They also advertised a bar, which turned out to be a vending machine selling beer. I want my guinness from the tap, not a can in a vending machine.
