Liked: Surprisingly nice place for a tenner. I was only there for a night so cannot really say much about the service. The staffs are really nice though. Cleanness is really good

Disliked: the location is a bit far from the central zone. it is about 30 mins walk from Waveley Train station. It would be fine normally but when walking with your full luggage on your back in crowded Edinburgh is a bit tricky.

Liked: Great, friendly staff, and a good location in central Dublin - can walk to either the O2 or the Temple Bar area.

Disliked: It's the biggest hostel I've seen, and can't always handle all the traffic. The breakfast room was crammed and not all that impressive (toast and jam in little plastic packets). The rooms don't get cleaned often enough, especially the bathrooms in each dorm. There are no lockers in the rooms and the downstairs lockers at 2 euro per day + 10 euro deposit are an absolute rip-off of an alternative.Needs more attention to detail and the needs of the individual customer. Advertises itself everywhere as between the 7th and 10th best hostel in Dublin - shouldn't it be aiming for number 1?

Liked: Incredibly clean, well equipped ! Wonder why this is called a youth hostel: you get the services and quality of a hotel for a more than decent price.Go check out hostel pub crawl if yuo get a chance.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: El hostel está muy bien situado, a 10 minutos andando del Spire más o menos. Las habitaciones están bien, lo único que en habitaciones de mucha gente (la nuestra era de 10) pues siempre te expones a ruidos y gente molesta. El desayuno completo y bueno.
