Liked: Really great location in walking distance to everything, free breakfast was basic but good, staff were helpful. Sandeman's walking tour picked up from reception daily which was great.

Disliked: No lockers and lack of powerpoints in dorm rooms, had to pay to store luggage before/after checkout (not expensive though, which was good). Wifi would drop in and out but otherwise was good.

Liked: Good location, helpful staff, big common space, bright rooms, comfy bed.

Disliked: Breakfast was poor. Half of showers on floor were non-functional. Hostel has strange vibe because many people are staying there while looking for apartments in Dublin - as opposed to mostly travellers/backpackers.

Liked: Gret location. Clean rooms, bathrooms cleaned often and to a high standard. Late check out for £5. Free breakfast was a god send, lots of cereals toast and toppings to choose from and unlimited tea and coffee. Comfy beds and lots of room and storage in the rooms. Overall great hostal and would definately stay here again.

Disliked: I stayed here with 12 others for my birthday and we had a room all to ourselves. We were planning on having a little drink before going out however no alcohol is allowed in the room and this wasnt stated when booking. It didnt really bother us to not drink before hand however i do think this should be stated. ALso check in isnt 12noon it is infact 2pm. This is also stated incorrectly online.

Liked: Good facilities, breakfast provided and good common room. Beds very spacious.

Disliked: Overcrowded at times but manageable. Check out time too early. Bed frames low quality, top bunk and bottom bunk can feel every movement.
