02 August 2010

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...

Backpacking / gap year

03 July 2010 Customer would recommend this property

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.

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.

Audrey Siew

01 June 2010 Audrey would recommend this property

Liked: I liked how it was so easy to meet new people, the breakfast was a simple meal of toast & cereal with tea/coffee/orange juice but it was more than enough. I particularly enjoyed my stay there because of the people I've met during my stay & also the staff were really helpful! The room I was in was a wee bit too warm which made it a bit uncomfortable but someone in the room managed to get a standing fan from the reception, which helped drastically! Would definitely stay there again during my next visit.
