April Nunez

25 December 2009 April would recommend this property

Liked: I think the staff makes the hostel. I spoke with at least 3 staff members during my staff and all were helpful and knowledgeable. The hostel is about a block from the Connolly train station and near a bus stop to the airport. The only two points they could improve is 1. providing ventilation in the bathrooms (steam from the showers makes the room wet for a long time) and 2. have lights for the lower bunks. Aside from that, this was a great place.

Disliked: April left no negative feedback.

02 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Clean, friendly and very convenient to the bus and train stations. Breakfast was a bit lean - I think Jacob's used to offer fruit. Muesli would be a healthier option than cornflakes, but the Irish wheaten bread was good

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
