Liked: Nothing.

Disliked: - Their main ad is free shuttle to the airport but thats not true! You need to be 10 for this! - One shower working for all the building - No sink in private bed room - No closet, locker or even hooks in room - staff useless - hygienic towels on the ceiling - one building with working showers but no hot water

Liked: Apparently pulling then pushing a door is normal and getting shouted at because the reception man had to get off chair to tell us this! The bedrooms ate in a separate building so no kitchen ect pubes in the bed, two sockets for the whole room for 10 people! No lockers under bed! A good walk away from the centre! Old and tired decor! Stayed i all the hostels in dublin as visit frequently i am not a snob but this place is bad the poor night staff stand outside all night to let you in the building! Terrible

Disliked: Everything

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!
