Liked: Overall value. Free wifi in reception/lobby. You can also volunteer for 2-3 hrs a day for free lodging!

Disliked: Reception hall closes at 11:30pm, so I lost my precious wifi connection.

Liked: They have their own tour company and the office is in the lobby--very convenient. Nicely located RIGHT beside the central bus station. They run their own free airport shuttle.

Disliked: Unfriendly staff, only small lockers available, most rooms are in a separate entrance, no elevator, wifi only available in the lobby (which closes at 11:30).

Liked: Breafast started at 6:30 which was nice for people needing to check out early and catch flights etc... Breakfast was good but standard with cereal and toast.

Disliked: We were in a building next door to the main property and had to ask a staff member to come open the building for us every time we wanted to get in. It was a little tedious.

Liked: It was within walking distance to so many great places in Dublin, like the whole Temple Bar area, yet it wasn't directly in a super crowded place so it wasn't too loud at night. It was full of awesomeeee people and was really comfortable and basically perfect.

Disliked: The night patrol people can be a little moody, but I still appreciate that they're there.

Liked: Great hostel, walking distance to main busstops, shops and pubs. Bit far from temple bar but the staff were great at giving directions to everything. Rooms were clean and bathrooms always clean, stocked and available. The fact there are key cards means that its secure to get into your rooms. Would go back again

Disliked: The key cards had to be reactivated a lot, so sometimes after a night out we could not get into our rooms which was annoying. Also we went in July, and the heating was on which meant it was boiling everywhere.

Liked: An absolutely great place to stay , especially for being such a cheap hostel near the center of Dublin. I highly recommend the walking tour that's offered, and and am also on the 10 day Ireland tour offered by Paddywagon - so far I think these guys are great!

Disliked: Breakfast is nothing special, just your basic cereal and toast that you can expect from many hostels. Also, there us no lift in the building, so some people with bags instead of backpacks might have a difficult time getting up to the top floor.
