joan k smith

06 May 2009 joan k would recommend this property

Liked: Our room was very clean,modern and as nice as a good hotel.. The staff was helpful. The location was conveniently located close to a bus station. We took a bus from the Dublin Airport to this station. We arrived around 10 am and found the checkin time was not until 3 PM. However, there were lockers available to store our luggage until the room was available and we were then able to tour the city.We would definitely reccomend this hostel.

Jonathan Ang

05 May 2009 Jonathan would recommend this property

Liked: Excellent and well-maintained premises -- the lobby is stunning, and gives a very "hotel" feel to the place, which is a pleasant surprise when one first enters. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, and guests are friendly and considerate. Location is top-notch if you plan to explore the city by Luas (tram), as there is a tram stop located just less than a minute's walk away.

19 April 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I liked the downstairs reception area and restaurant because it had a very professional atmosphere and it made you feel welcome. The price was great, especially considering that it included a self-service breakfast, and, due to the keycard access, I felt very safe staying there. The reception staff were also very friendly and helpful, and arranged an earlier check-in for me after my long flight.
