"Really good location close to the airport shuttles, O'Connell Street and the Paddywagon tours office (which was essential for us since we were taking two tours with them). The front desk staff was…"

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.

Liked: Breakfast ok. Great location and very secure.

Disliked: No atmosphere, staff average. It seems like there would be plenty of other places to stay for the same price that offer a more sociable environment. Also WiFi doesn't reach any room.

Liked: Free breakfast, good location, ensuite in rooms with shower and toilet, heating kept the room warm, not too much noise from the street or the rest of the hostel.

Disliked: Staff were okay, seemed like you were interrupting them or annoying them to check in. Also, due to security, you have to constantly ask them to buzz you into the hostel front door and into the room/kitchen area, which can get annoying when you're going in or out, or you've forgotten something. No toilet seat on the toilet in the kitchen area. No wifi in rooms :( Only a few powerpoints in a 10 bed room.
