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

Liked: Decent hostel

Disliked: Staff were not super friendly, but not unkind either. Unfortunately did not get a very good night's sleep. Stayed in 6 bed female dorm, and three roommates came back over a period of about two hours, keeping the rest of us up in the middle of the night. The other three of us had to be up early to catch a buses. Would be nice if you could be assigned to a room based on what time you plan to go to sleep/what time you plan to wake up!

Liked: Location, towels included in price of stay, breakfast although limited (toast, hard boiled eggs, hot cocoa and coffee, and canned fruit) was included, relatively quiet

Disliked: We had one outlet and that was located far from the bed- we actually didn't even find it until day 2. There was a lamp in our room which was located in a place that the cord would not reach the plug in, so it was worthless -maybe solely for decorative purposes? The shower leaked all over the floor making it a slippery mess. The room looked pretty runned down with a rack of coat hangers lying on the floor which someone had clearly broken off before our stay and the bathtub had stains.

Liked: The location is fantastic and so close to all the sites. The breakfast was also good- toast, cereal, tea, fruit and boiled eggs

Disliked: There are no lockers in the rooms, only some on the ground floor which you have to rent per hour / day. The bathroom was a little dirty. The pillows were very flat and they would not provide another one.

Liked: Breakfast is included in the price, the wifi signal is excellent and the dorm rooms have en-suites instead of hall style toilets/showers. Each bed has a light and a plug and a little shelf connected to the bed which is super convenient. The location is perfect- so easy to get to from the airport, and close to all the sights and nightlife.

Disliked: There aren't any lockers in the room, so you have to rent one if you have valuables. You also have to put the linens on your bed yourself which is fine but a bit of a pain if you arrive late and are tired, or there are already people asleep in your room.

Liked: 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.

Disliked: The doors slam hard when you let them close on their own. They're heavy, and after a night of drinking the doors will slam sporadically.
