Sarah Williams thinks…

"Everything! It was such a friendly hostel, has a really great outside look and offers both a pub crawl and free walking tour which were great. Interesting basement, didn't try the sauna but it looked…"

Liked: I LOVED thAt they had a sauna. It is such a great way to relax your muscles after carrying a heavy backpack for the day. The atmosphere and the staff are great! The beds are super comfy, really everything was quite wonderful.

Disliked: The only complaint I have is that the lockers are not in the rooms. They keep them in the basement, they are very secure just kind of out of the way

Liked: Great hostel, super friendly and helpful staff. Really nice building , close to all the city attraction (although it is not difficult not to be close to, considering size of the Dublin), free breakfast.

Disliked: Quite loud because of trains going right behind your windows and squeaky floors. It's big hostel so bathrooms are a little bit dirty (I assume it is inevitable considering amount of people using it) and main downside is lack of storage lockers in the rooms. It is clear on the website and they provide lockers in the basement, but it's a little bit uncomfortable.

Liked: Most of the staff were friendly and helpful. but not all. See below.

Disliked: I asked for another chair for the room as I am in my late fifties and would prefer to sit on a chair rather than the bottom part of a bunk bed in this twin room. You'd have thought I'd asked for something impossible. No I coul;dn't possibly have another chair...and when she saw me again in the corridor there was no apology

08 August 2012 Sophie would recommend this property

Liked: Atmosphere was great. highly suggest the pub crawl. breakfast was your ordinary hostel free breakfast. it even had juice which many other hostels didn't provide for free! would have been great if the breakfast went for longer it finishes at 9.30 and we only made it for one of the mornings we were there. staff were great. showers and toilets very clean but the showers were often cold. rooms can be hot at night even though its cold outside!

Disliked: The wifi had a really bad signal. was very hard to use it in any part of the building. sometimes even impossible. had to go and pay for internet in a cafe to book flights/hostels. wasn't enough facilities for the amount of guests especially on the weekend.

Liked: It had a large variety of services to offer, and the staff was extremely helpful and friendly.

Disliked: The room doors of the neighbours on the floor were often slammed hard. Although one cannot control the profile of the people in the hostel, it would be nice to control the noise level thy make.

Liked: Good location, very nice décor. Basement is very homely, the reading area's fantastic. The Irish girl with the labret piercing was lovely, as was the American guy with the beard. Also, the hot Italian should be given a raise!

Disliked: Some staff were very rude. You could clearly tell some of them didn't like the fact that we were a group; they just assumed the worst, and treated us accordingly. The fact is we are a very respectable and highly-regarded group, and should have been given the benefit of the doubt. Also, the cleaner shouldn't have come into the room when all of us were inside of it; some of us in just a towel after the shower. That made a lot of us feel uncomfortable. If a group is staying in one room on their own, there is no need to clean the room until they leave. Also, the breakfast was a bit on the stingy side!
