Liked: The location of the hostel was good, the free airport pick up and drop off was really handy and saved us some money and the staff were friendly and helpful when asking for recommendations. Good value for money and comfy beds.

Disliked: The hostel is very basic. Our room was pretty small, but this didn't really matter to us. The only real negative would be the showers. Ran cold 90% of our time there and you have to constantly keep pressing the on button. But at least they were clean!

Liked: Location was alright. And some of the staff were really nice and helpful.

Disliked: Someone had something stolen when I was there. Wifi only offered in a small area and limited times. I spent over an hour trying to connect because if one person had an issue connecting they had to reboot which disconnected everyone and only led to more problems, but was their only solution..... Cold showers!

Liked: Pretty comfortable, good location, free airport shuttle bus really convienent, staff could have been a little friendlier but still not bad. free, basic breakfast.

Disliked: at one point there was zero toilet paper in any of the bathrooms- it was taken care of within a few hours but thats still a pretty long time. Also the hot water button on the sinks creats a huge splash, in every sink.

Liked: Day staff were really helpful and the location is so handy for all the tourist attractions

Disliked: Night staff were very unhelpful and rude, arrived early so could not check in and the night porter checked us in, he did not tell us where our room was and we had to wait 20 mins to be let in. No key to open the front doors of the hostel makes it very inconvenient.

27 August 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I had booked 2 beds in a 6 bed dorm for myself & a friend but when i arrived they didn't have space so upgraded us to a 4 bed dorm. To access the dorm you needed to go in through another outside door, which they didn't give you a key for which was slightly annoying, but when questioned about it they said it was for security reasons. There was a security guard there when we came back from the pub who checked us off on a list & let us in. It was conveniently situated and a cheap taxi ride from Temple Bar at the end of the night. Some of the reviews had said the place wasn't very clean but our room was fine so i guess it depends what room you get.

Disliked: When i checked in the staff didn't show me where any of the facilities were (i.e.kitchen etc) or advise of breakfast times & location and it took me a while and 3 flights of stairs to find the nearest toilet to my room - I never found the showers. There are no lockers in the room to put valuables in. There are two staff manning the Paddywagon desk, who would not help with hostel queries even if they were free, & only one on reception for the hostel which means you spend a lot of time queuing if you need anything. Would be useful to have Paddywagon staff cross trained to be able to answer FAQ's for the hostel & have 2 staff on Hostel reception during the day.
