Rebecca Day thinks…

"It was clean and had comfy beds. We spent 2 nights in a shared dorm which was great value for money. The shared bathrooms were always clean and tidy and there is a seperate mirror/ power area to dry…"

Liked: This hostel has the potential to be great, breakfast included, cool facilities...

Disliked: While I was there renovations were happening so the kitchen and showers were a bit out of order, the internet is horrid so I am writing this from an internet cafe down the road. Rooms were a tad dirty (smelled a bit too) and the beds weren't overly comfortable but honestly this place was GREAT value for money.

Liked: I loved the big clean bathrooms, most hostels I've stayed at have tiny tiny bathrooms and most of the time they are dirty.

Disliked: I didn't like that the luggage room was all the way in the basement. I usually have a pretty heavy bag and carrying it all the way down and then back up again when I needed to leave was hard work.

Liked: Common rooms are really nice, enough space to hang out. The kitchen is pretty good.

Disliked: Once you have seen the common rooms and kitchen, one would expect the dorms to be nice as well, but they are a bit run down. Especially the floor covering seemed to be in a bad state, a bit disgusting. The shower facilities aren't great, water wasn't warm enough. So the place is being let down by below standard dorms, the dorm area is in need of renovation.

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.
