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: Very close to the central bus station which makes it easy when arriving or leaving dublin. Free breakfast of toast, cereal, juice and tea/coffee. A lot of things on offer - walking tours, organised nights etc.

Disliked: No lockers in the dorm rooms - there were some down in the basement for a price which seemed an odd setup.

Liked: The bathrooms were very clean

Disliked: The door to our room didn't close properly which was annoying, there were only 3 showers and 3 toilets on our floor which led to overcrowded bathrooms & the staff were not overly friendly.

27 August 2010 Rebecca would recommend this property

Liked: Superb staff, great location, very clean and sociable. Though everyone there wasn't loud, the beds creaked mercilessly as did the floors on the corridors and the walls were very thin. We slept very well after everyone quietened down at about 11pm. Breakfast was a bit lame - pretty much toast but the kitchen the facilities were good if you have the forethought to plan your meals (there is a Tesco around the corner).

Liked: I liked all the different areas in the hostel, its nice.the price was okman different activities in the hostel at nightit's close to bus station (500m) which is also a very good pointit has an airport shuttle which picks u up AT the hostel...nice

Disliked: it smells like sh** downstairs in the common areas....like old socks and sweat together...really didn't enjoy that Hot shower is nice BUT even nicer when you can choose to have a hot one r not..i couldn't even shower this morning as it was really burning me... It's a shame that when the common areas close, you can not even be there on your computer.knowing that you don't have internet upstairs, it's annoying not being to use it after 0h00....we're not 18 ! location could be better honestly...it's a little walk to temple bar and all the touristic areas Noisy at night, cannot sleep before 1H30 and after 8H30.....too much noise but as i always say, it doesn't matter that much if a hostel isn't perfect with many games and stuff because we're supposed to go out and visit...

Liked: The location next to the bus station is the huge draw. Very convenient. Other than that, no real complaints but no huge pluses either. Pretty standard fare over all.

Disliked: To get any kind of locker you had to pay $2 plus a $10 deposit (even if you had your own lock) and it was then these sketchy crates in the basement of the hostel.

04 June 2010 Gert would recommend this property

Liked: Ein Nachteil. Das Heizungsrohr in Raum 118 ist nicht isoliert. Somit ist die Heizung zwar abgedreht aber das gesamte Rohr für den Zu- und Ablauf ist freiliegend und läuft durch das ganze Zimmer und ist heiß. Somit ist das Zimmer viel zu warm, trotz offenen Fenster und kühler Außentemperaturen.

Disliked: Gert left no negative feedback.
