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.

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.

Liked: Very accesibe to everywhere, the staff were normally extremely helpful and the younger kids working there certainly were kind and worked hard. MY experience in the rooms was great, the facilities were as expected and the breakfast was the best "cheap/continental" breakfast i've ever had.

Disliked: The internet is charged at 1 euro per 15mins (though wifi is free - makes sense... not) and just about 1 minute up the road are TWO internet cafes that charge 1 euro per HOUR, way to stay competitive. Would be nice if they recognised this and lowered the price per time as well.

Liked: The location is unbeatable, five minutes walk from O'Connell St and fiveteen from Trinity College and Temple Bar, friendly staff and simple but normal breakfast. the beds and linen were clean and the bathroom en suite had a narrow but acceptable shower.

Disliked: The only one thing that I would change is the dusty smell from the carpets. Maybe showers could be a little larger - mine at least was quite narrow - and a wardrobe could be added to rooms.

Liked: the location is great! right at the airlink bus stop! clean linens provided. room is clean. toilet n wash facilities are clean. very near to all attractions. security is good. there are lockers provided at the ground floor for a small fee. vending machines for your late night hunger pangs. a very comfortable communal area for you to use free wifi n watch tv with comfy sofas. computer stations provided for a fee as well. kitchen for use. friendly staffs. breakfast is simple but satisfying. nth more to ask for.

Disliked: hmmm. the room key was abit hard to open the lock initially as it wasnt very well cut. but once u get the hang of it, u'll know how to open it quickly. cups at breakfast can be cleaner, but not a prob as u can just bring it to e sink for a rinse.
