Chelsi Doyle thinks…

"The hostel was in a great location and pretty much everything was within walking distance. Breakfast was free! The room was clean and large with a large en suite bathroom."

Liked: Rooms were clean and spacious

Disliked: There was not enough luggage storage space to cope with the number of people arriving and leaving so a lot of people couldn't leave bags during the day. Breakfast was chaotic - too many people in too small a space with not enough seats. And a poor breakfast selection.

Disliked: 2euro for the lockers is a little too much, why don't put some "cages" for free into the rooms?

17 November 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I liked that it's really close to the Busarus, pubs and a lot of super-markets pizzerias and shops. It is also relatively close to anything, including Temple Bar and Trinity College. The walking tour that we took was very nice and I would recommend taking it. Although it was cold, the rooms were warm and clean.

Disliked: The magnetic keys didn't function half the time (not really a problem), the beer garden closed at about 9:30 so I didn't really get to drink their beer. No free popcorn and once they stopped serving breakfast, no more coffee and tea. I don't know about WiFi, but the internet from their computers was not free.

Liked: The property is huge and offers a lot of services. It's very safe with all the badging necessary to enter all the building.

Disliked: You feel a little bit treated like kettel: there must be hundreds of people there, and the staff is helpful but very cold... And the location is really average, in the dodgy place of the town...

Liked: Our double room was spotless and comfortable.The hostel was located near the bus stop to the airport, and on a walking distance from all main attractions.Good value for money.

Disliked: We could not use the kitchen all day (it is close between 3 and 5pm). We had the feeling that we "disturbed" some staff members sometimes...

Liked: This is all you could want in a hostel. Communal spaces were large and well appointed, dorm had its own ensuite bathroom, security was good and there was a luggage room with lockable cages, the whole hostel was really tidy and clean, breakfast was included and there was free WiFi internet. All this for only 12.50 euros.

Liked: Stayed in a private twin room with a friend, was really clean and nice. At night it was a little bit loud but the noise wasnt people it was the train, the track ran right down the side of the building. But we arent too fussy so it was okay for us. Kinda steep price for what you get but it is Dublin. Overall I had a mad time :)

Customer review

27 April 2010 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: The common area is pretty nice and the hostel attracts a pretty cool crowd of people. The rooftop deck offers a nice view of dublin and the breakfast is nothing special but its free so you can't really complain. There is also a "game room" that offers another smaller common area so their are multiple places to go to get away from people when need be.The room I had was in great shape and pretty spacious compared to a lot of hostels. The walls seem to be paper thin and the rooms themselves pick up every little noise so it can be a little hard to sleep. The pillows are paper thin and might as well not be there. The bathrooms are actually really nice but the showers are the push button kind where you have to hit a button every minute or so to keep them running.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
