Liked: It's a down to earth place, in a good location. Staff quite friendly. Especially the singing guy at reception!! He has a marvellous voice:) Breakfast is free and quite nice. It has a pretty decent kitchen. It's not too big so quite easy to meet people.

Disliked: Room was pretty tight but it was alright.

Liked: The location is truely perfect. Bus stop for airport & wicklow way 200 meters away. Temple bar almost begins on the other side of the street. Feels safe (nobody can enter without ringing at the bell). Paid lockers AND free luggage room. Breakfast is very correct for the price.

Disliked: The staff is friendly but just can't deal with the requests from the customers: the guy needs to stay at his desk because he is alone and needs to manually unlock the entrance door everytime someone wants to enter (which is on the other hand a pretty good thing for safety). So you door was blocked because the lock was broken, and we had to wait during more than one hour for him open the door (by breaking the lock)... A bit noisy when facing the street because there is no double glazing on windows.

Liked: The included breakfast and the location. The staff was very friendly and helpful particularly to/for our three year old son.

Disliked: Cooking facilities are very limited. The toasters did not work very well. Beds were not very comfortable and you could not sit up with out banging your head. Hot water ran out twice during our stay so we had cold showers. The heating was on a timer and our room never got warm. The curtains were very thin and did not block out the street light outside our room. The shower was very small.

Liked: good location

Disliked: The Hostel is very gruby and needs to be renovated and get new carpet etc. It has an old unkept feel to it- Basically the rooms are really small and there are no lockers in the room. There are also dodgy plug points all over the hostel and most do not work it was an absolute nightmare to wash my hair as only one plug point worked in the room and it was under someone else's bottom bunk so i was on my hands and knees drying my hair-ridiculous. Also in the main area I could not charge up my laptop as the plug points do not work again.....

27 November 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Great communal atmosphere - everyone seemed to know everyone else. Free tea and coffee. Good common area with lots of space to sit/relax/use your laptop. Good free breakfast. Free to use under-bed lockers. I paid 9 Euros a night (weekdays only) which is amazing value for Dublin centre.

Disliked: There was a 'floater' in the only downstairs gents toilet for my entire stay, so 2 days - I was amazed this wasn't dealt with in that time. The place could use some refurbishment - it feels dated. The cheap room 'Ashfield' has 18 beds, and is a little too full, especially as there is only 2 toilets/showers in the bathroom. Overall, a decent hostel... but Abigail's (sister hostel) has a better common room, better bedrooms (less beds, more space) and is better located for Temple Bar.
