Liked: The location was perfect, the city centre was only five minutes walk away and one stree from Temple Bar. The room was clean and comfortable. We stayed in a double room with a private bathroom which was located away from the dorms so it was nice and quiet too. The breakfast on offer was plentiful and the staff were friendly and helpful

Disliked: Nothing!

Liked: The common areas are decorated nicely, giving off a friendly vibe. The type of people staying at the place all seemed like friendly back packers too. Nice staff. Decent breakfast. Great location.

Disliked: I stayed in a room facing the quays, which was a little noisy when sleeping but, it wasn't noisy enough to keep me awake.

Liked: I LOVED the location. That's essentially what you're paying for. You are 10 steps away from the temple bar area and all the main sights in Dublin. Also, the airport aircoach drops you off a 5 minute walk from the hostel. Location is their main selling point. Breakfast was the same as in every hostel I've ever stayed- cereal, toast, coffee, etc. The staff was really really helpful with questions and suggestions as well.

Disliked: This is one of the least clean hostels i've stayed at. I saw another review that said there was hair all over the pillows and thought that was strange-- but it's true. My pillowcase had stains on it as well. The rooms are small and there are no lockers to keep your things. You have to pay 3 euros every 24 hrs to keep anything in a locker behind the front desk. I didn't do this, so I can't review that aspect. It's a very old building. But if you realize that all you do is sleep there and are ok with paying for the awesome location it has, then this hostel is a fine choice. However, if I personally go back to Dublin, I will look into other options.

13 February 2013 Emily would recommend this property

Liked: It's really all about the location. Don't go there expecting a state-of-the-art bed, but expect clean sheets. Don't expect modern facilities (if any) in your rooms, but expect hot water. If you're like myself and my partner, who really just needed a place to store our luggage and crash for the night, this place is great because it's set smack bang in the centre of everything with local transport, pubs, restaurants and clubs at your doorstep. Free Wi-Fi and breakfast are an added bonus, and as long as you don't mind having to put up with sometimes very loud people in the reception area you get what you pay for. The reception staff were also very helpful and friendly at all times.

Disliked: There wasn't any storage solutions in the room, not even a table or chair. The shower head was awkwardly positioned so you literally had to lean against the wall to have water fall on you.

Liked: Most comfortable bed I've had my entire trip! The shower and bathroom facilities were amazing, and the breakfast provided was very convenient. Felt safe enough to leave our luggage in the rooms, or the lockers provided, while we were out on the town. Close to a good shopping district and bus stops.

Disliked: Be prepared for noisy nights if you keep the window open!

Liked: Great location, right next to the river, close to all the bars, restaurants, shops, etc, etc. Decent sized rooms and bathrooms kept clean. Communal area very spacious with loads of places to sit whilst eating or socialising. Free wi-fi always a bonus. Staff were pretty helpful too in telling us where things were located.

Disliked: The whole key system is a little weird, not ideal but then again not a massive annoyance. Could maybe have lockers in the rooms, other than that no complaints whatsoever! Good hostel.

Liked: Large open plan kitchen/common room area makes for better socializing. A bit quieter than some of the other hostels and everyone was respectful of others sleeping when they entered the rooms at night, so good if you want somewhere you know you can get a good nights sleep.

Disliked: Kitchen was slightly under-equipped for self catering accomodation e.g. no baking trays, no large dishes for serving group meals (only a minor thing)
