Liked: This place is a very good value for the money. Its clean and centrally located to most of Dublins tourist sttractions. The facilities and the breakfast on offer was really good.

Disliked: The last night we were staying there a group of boys decided to run up and downt the hallways for several hours knocking on every single door. Wen I went and complained about it to the frint desk he just shrugged his shoulder and went back to the computer which I found very rude.

Liked: Good location, cheap stay for a couple of nights. Free breakfast definitely a bonus! On the whole staff friendly and willing to help out. Lots of leaflets available on info about the city.

Disliked: Unfortunately the group staying in 2 of the rooms up my corridor were very inconsiderate late into the night...the main problem was the loud slamming of doors: if there's a way to stop the doors slamming it would improve things a lot!! Also being able to lock rooms from the inside would be reassuring as a single female staying in a private room.

Liked: We booked a double private room for the duration of our stay and were really happy with the room - very light and bright, large and a clean private bathroom for our use. the location of the hostel is fantastic and the 24 hour reception is great. The breakfast was a really great addition to our stay, too. The wifi was a bit patchy,but over all, can not complain about this place. really impressed.

Disliked: The hot water was very temperamental!
