Liked: The location is superb and the staff is very nice and helpful. The beds have their own electric plugs, which was very useful.

Disliked: The place is decrepit. The beds are hard, the bedrooms crowded and dirty, all the sinks run slow and the bath was grimey and two old to work properly. The sink, the door handle and the lift broke during our visit. The breakfast never seems to be enough, with queues every time. The only storage is paid, not even the rooms have lockers (or space, other than the gap under the bed).

Liked: Good location, good walking tour

Disliked: Wifi not reliable, works in common areas sometimes. Although a good location, it is very loud outside at night and so hot in the dorms that the windows must be left open. Staff were helpful but did not have accurate booking info for some major sites.

Liked: Right in the middle of Dublin!! It is near the halfpenny bridge looking out on the the river - beautiful! It is easy access to everywhere in Dublin especially Temple bar!! Literally I one minute walk - if that! Staff are also very helpful with any questions and you can even book a transfer to the airport at reception for any time! The rooms were basic but clean and the beds all have there own personal lights and plug sockets and the internet is very good! Would recommend!

Disliked: Wasn't as fancy as in looks on the website - the foyer/reception/breakfast area is however nice. Less options for breakfast.

23 January 2015 Andrew would recommend this property

Liked: Locations was perfect, right on the Liffey and by the Temple Bar Area. Was able to get WiFi in the room, despite being on the second floor, free breakfast was plentiful. free tea and coffee during the day too was good. Staff seemed friendly enough, but you felt as if you were interrupting their chats when at the reception desk. Well heated and comfortable, despite weather being very cold at times.

Disliked: Common Area had little character, felt like a school cafeteria. No lockers in rooms - despite a huge space in Room 21 (where I stayed) which would have been perfect for lockers - even if the management decided not to use under bed storage as most hostels do. Odd security system of having to hand your key in before you leave the hostel and you have to show your receipt to get your key back - I have no idea what would happen if the receipt is lost. The bathroom needed a spruce up - it felt dingy and if you're going to have a hairdryer in there at least have it working, showerhead was a fixed head so you couldn't change the stream and virtually had to shower against the wall
