"I love how welcoming it was from the minute you got there. It felt very safe also because there were secure front doors. I was on my own but had absolutely no hassle with 5 other strangers, everyone was quiet and lovely!"

Liked: This hostel was in an amazing location! It was a block away from Temple Bar which meant that going out at night wasn't a hassle and it wasn't noisy on the street at night. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful!

Disliked: The breakfast was typical hostel food (cereal, toast, coffee and juice) and they would run out of clean dishes very quickly. Most guests were eating breakfast at 8 am so if you were there between 8 and 9 you usually had to wait for clean dishes.

Liked: It was a really nice place especially for all of the price! The location is easy to find & only 5 min walk from O'Connell Street, with a starbucks around the corner & a few bars handy too. The hostel staff were really friendly & helpful. The dorm was really clean & prettily decorated, the bathroom was also really clean & came with a hair dryer!! We didn't try the included breakfast but thought it was amazing that it ran until 10.30AM so will definately try it next time! All in all it was a great place to stay and will definately stay here again :)

Disliked: The only one thing, would be that there wasn't alot of room to store your own food if you had it - the fridge was massive so that was good, but there wasn't much cupboard space.

Liked: It's in Temple Bar, so expect some noise -- however, the people sharing my room were quiet, generally in pretty early. Ensuite was clean, breakfast (yoghurt, toast, eggs, cereal, tea&coffee) was great every morning. Inexpensive room with a fantastic location, easy to find, and a very nice common area. The rooms are secure, you have to show the front desk a receipt to be let into the rooms. Lockers are available but I did not feel that I needed them.

Disliked: When I arrived, the person in my room before me did not clear their linens, so I couldn't tell which bed was mine until everyone else had returned to the room. Wish the staff had numbered and assigned beds. Keys were also sparse until we asked for a new set to be made, ended up having to knock and wake people up to be let in.
