"I like the room size, it was so big! And the beds are cool with individual lights and power source. I also enjoyed the location and lounge area downstairs."

Liked: I really liked the lounge area and the large rooms. The bathrooms were plain but clean. The hostel felt friendly and comfortable. It was in a fantastic spot right in the heart of the Dublin pub scene and close to the river.

Disliked: The only complaint I have was that there weren't towels available. They kept telling me that they would have some ready soon but it was very inconvenient and the employees seemed very stressed.

Liked: I enjoyed the security precautions taken as far as the room keys goes--leaving them at the hostel as you went out and about. The complimentary breakfast in the morning was good and the staff was extremely friendly and helpful with whatever I needed help with.

Disliked: I didn't like the security precautions taken as far as the front door goes. There was a buzzer to get in but there was no check to see who was there--they let anybody who buzzed into the hostel. That's not to say that people who weren't staying in the hostel were in the lobby but it made me uneasy knowing that someone could've easily done that. Also, the bathroom wasn't as clean as it could've been.

Liked: I'd spent about two weeks in various hostels in Ireland. This one was the biggest and definitely the best organised one (and one of the cleanest ones as well). The staff was helpful and professional. Reproductions of Banksy's graffiti add a nice touch to the common room :).

Disliked: Didn't like that somebody from the cleaning service entered the room in my absence - but then I was fairly warned about that and thanks to the cleaning service the hostel is neat and tidy :).

Liked: Breakfast was included which was awesome! Each bed had it's own individual plug in station and light so you could charge portable electronics overnight. The location was excellent; right on the Liffey River and a very short walk into the Temple Bar area. Would definitely stay here again and strongly recommend it!

Disliked: There were no lockers in the rooms to store your bags.

Liked: It was nice to be so close to everything.

Disliked: It was not very clean. They also have a lock on the door; however, sometimes is works and sometimes it doesn't. They don't give you a code. All you have to do is buzz in, so basically anyone can enter the hostel. I honestly don't think the staff would know if you where a guest or some person from the street.
