Liked: the location was great everything (sightseeing, restaurants, nightlife) was in walking distance, the breakfast was really good for a hostel, and the common area was huge. also, the staff was really helpful with day trips, directions, and recommendations

Disliked: no wifi in the rooms unless they were right above the common area. the rooms in the back had no elevator so you had to carry suitcases up a ton of stairs

Liked: the location and helpful staff also safe and secure.

Disliked: the smell of sewage in the shower drain although when we mentioned it to the staff... they did give us bleach.. and the rubber smell in the buliding. also we had to buy an extention lead as there was no plug sockets near the mirror.

Liked: The location is great. I like that they still have smaller all girl dorms as an option. The included breakfast is excellent.

Disliked: The hostel is okay but no more. The dorm I was in was very very pokey - it was ompossible for all six girls to be in the room at once unless in their beds. No place to put your pack and the lockers were four floors down! I think they should be less greedy and make this room (18) a four bed dorm and put lockers in the room as well as a chair or something so that the top bunk people can sit down. This is what you get for twenty euros at many other hostels.

Liked: Great staff and breakfast! Rooms were clean and security was good. Great location! (just a few blocks to main shopping region, temple bar and restaurants) Had good communal areas which made meeting others easy and free wi-fi is always appreciated!

Disliked: there is a nightclub 2 doors down and from my room i could hear the music... but the reception offer earplugs if you have difficulty sleeping. other than that, great hostel!!!

Liked: The staff was great and kept changing. Hardly saw any of them more than twice behind the counter.. It was very well located and easy to find. The room was neat and safe. The breakfast was sufficient as you could eat as much of it as you liked.

Disliked: The room was a bit small.. but it didn't really matter that much. The kitchen was reasonably well equipped though there wasn't that much room for cooking. It lacked an oven too. The heating system was a bit weird.

Liked: Free wifi downstairs and breakfast was included. The location was great with only a two minute walk to the main shopping street.

Disliked: We stayed here two nights (not consecutively) and the staff were very rude and unfriendly both times, complaining about other guests to us. They were unhelpful when we asked questions and just made the stay unpleasant.
