Liked: First of all the staff was really nice and helpful. Then there is a daily free city tour (well at the end you will be asked for a small tip, but that is ok). Don't expect a normal, boring tour. It is the absolute opposite and it was a lot of fun.Furthermore they offer free Sauna once a week. What especially my finish colleges really enjoyed.The room was clean so as the bathroom and the beds were quite comfortable (none of these beds was sagging in the middle).It is a manageable walking distance away from the Temple Bar, Trinity College and all the other attractions on the south side.And since we had to leave very early, we got the breakfast on the arrival day and they even organised us a shuttle bus to the airport for 6€.

Disliked: They were running out of free city maps. Beside that it was really worth the price.

Liked: We had a private twin room which had everything just the way we needed. A terrace for smokers was 5 steps away so that was a plus for my friend and it was fairly quiet during the night. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the breakfast was just enough to get you going.

Disliked: The only two things that bothered me was the fact that WiFi is only in the lobby and we were on the fourth floor and the room doors close pretty noisy so it can bother people with light sleep when everyone starts coming back from their night out. But those two things are small minuses. All in all very satisfied. :)

Liked: Good location, very easy to get into the main part of the city!! The pub crawl they offer is a 'good crack' as the irish say!!

Disliked: Atmosphere isn't that great to be able to meet and mingle with other travellers, but again get on the pub crawl and that's all sorted!!

Liked: The hostel is in an excellent location and is great value for money. The rooms are clean and spacious and the staff are very friendly and helpful. They also participate in a free walking tour of the city which was a brlliant way to start the weekend and get a good view of the city.

Disliked: Sometimes there was no hot water so you couldn't use the showers.

Liked: The staffs were more than friendly, they were awesome. People there are all really cool...the hostel pub crawl was freaking awesome tooIt was the people that made it awesome. If you're looking to make friends from all around the world...explore and well being open about things it's pretty damn good. Just dont mind too much about staying with other ppl and its fine

Disliked: It really is just what you get for the amount you pay...some people might dislike staying in a room with 9 other ppl who might snore and come back in the middle of the night...but honestly... im a sound sleeper and i come back in the morning so i dont care....However.. they need to boost their internet connections...it was goin on and off and being temperamental at times and it was only limited to the ground floor at the reception and the canteen(sometimes) but not in the rooms
