Liked: Breakfast was very nice, it is located close to the Spire, and the bus leaving to airport is departuring 5 meters from hostel's door.

Disliked: The whole building is pretty old, the stairs were making a lot of noise when ppl were walkin, there are just few socets in the room, beds are very small and there was so much noise from the street it was almost impossible to sleep. No maps provided at the reception. The only thing good about this hostel was breakfast.

Liked: The breakfast was good, although the common area was very small.

Disliked: The room were dirty, clearly this was not cleaned after the previous guests left. There was a lot of dust on the floor, the kitchen garbage was full, there were hairs in the bathtub. Despite having a kitchen in the room, the cabinets were empty: there was no glass, plate or silverware to use. The location is not that good, the hostel is in the middle of nowhere.

Liked: The staff was flexible and helpful, they had no problems putting me in another room when I couldn't find an empty bed in the room I originally booked for, and they didn't charge me extra. Although it seems like they overbooked themselves...

Disliked: The six-person dorm I was in smelled bad and was really stuffy. The location isn't that great, especially if you're going out for the night, it's at least a 15 min walk to the Temple Bar area where most of the nightlife is. 15 min is significant if it is rainy/windy/both which is the majority of Ireland's weather.
