Liked: It is a less than 5 minute walk from everything central. If you want to go to Temple Bar, it's really close (that way you can easily find- or stumble- your way back....)! The people were really friendly and everything was clean.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: I think this hostels is really worthy. I paid 9 € for a bed in a six beds room with breakfast. The location is perfect and almost everything.

Disliked: The toilet inside the room lost water out, so the floor was completly cover by water.

Liked: Incredible value. The free breakfast was great, with boiled eggs, fruit salad and yoghurt there as well as the usual toast and tea/coffee. Good location. Near bus station and O'Connell Street but it was still nice and quiet at night. Went to a gig at the o2 and the hostel is near the luas red line that takes you right to the arena and back.

Disliked: Room was too warm.

Liked: it was clean.The staff were very helpful.They answered every question i asked.I even asked them about my praying direction and they found it on the internet and told me what.The breakfast was good.It is near all the attractions.I walked to all the attractions from the hostel.Muslim travellers can choose this hostel because there is a mosque and also some muslim restaurants very near.So,it was a very good decision for me to choose this hostel.I can stay there again.

Disliked: before i left the city ,i had to use their common toilet and it was quite dirty.But i think it is not hostel's fault ,it is the people who stay there.They make it dirty.There was blood on the wall in the toilet.I cannot imagine how some people can be so dirty.

24 September 2012 Sibylle would recommend this property

Liked: Fantastic value for money! My friend and I stayed in an 8-bed female-only dorm with en-suite bathroom, both of which were very clean for a hostel. Extremely helpful and friendly staff; helped various people who'd been staying there on a night-to-night basis to find another place to stay on nights they were fully booked. The area isn't great, but it's safe enough and very convenient -- Tesco Express and various food joints less than five minutes walk away, about 10-15 minutes walk to O'Connell St and Trinity College, bus stop outside the door. The complimentary breakfast was good -- toast (white and brown), jam, chocolate spread, butter, cereals, yoghurt, tea, coffee, milk, and orange juice. If you want savoury breakfast, you can always get something at Tesco and keep it in the fridge until you need it.

Disliked: I wouldn't go so far as to say "dislike", but it would've been nice to have a larger / more communicative lounge area. Most people used it only to use the wifi or watch telly. The room we stayed in had very, very few outlet plugs -- two that I could find, one halfway obscured by the bunk beds, one "for razors only" European mainland style outlet above the bathroom mirror.

Liked: It was in a good location in relation to downtown Dublin and Temple Bar area. The beds and sheets were clean and very comfortable and the bathroom was clean as well.

Disliked: The only common room was in the reception area. I would've liked another common in a different location where you could still go to hang out and have wifi.
