Liked: The staff was helpful and friendly. Helped us pick a great tour in the Western part of Ireland.

Disliked: We were in the Ashfield room and could not turn the lights on whenever we entered the room as people were sleeping. It was awkward and strange to me to have to change and get ready by the light of my cell phone.

20 October 2011 Mary Calla would recommend this property

Liked: The hostel is incredibly affordable, in a fantastic location, and free WiFi is a huge perk. Its about 2 minutes walk to Temple Bar district, 4 minutes walk to the biggest shopping district, and you're smack in the middle of all the sightseeing and bus routes.

Disliked: Bring your earplugs. The walls are paper thin, so you can hear everything going on in the building, including people scraping food from their plates in the kitchen, girls walking down the hallways in high heeled boots (or clogs, whatever, they were loud). The second morning my shower ran from lukewarm to ice cold, lame. Other than that, for 10 Euro per night, you really can't complain.

Liked: Great location, right near O'Connel St Bridge, right near the spire, center of town. Free wi-fi, kitchen with fridges, plates, cups, etc. Helpful staff, cool murals on the walls, one of the staff guys was totally rocking a harmonica along with some bruce springsteen for about a half hour one time, just randomly. Clean rooms, plenty of handsoap in the bathrooms, which is a good telltale sign for any hostel. The dorms are pretty basic, but there are lockers, plenty of tables and couches (nice couches, not secondhand couches),

Disliked: Not the best mattress I've ever slept on, but for the price, I'd gladly sleep on it for an extended period.

Liked: I loved staying here so much I extended my stay by four nights. The staff are fantastic, very helpful and fun to chat with. The hostel itself is great and has great common spaces for meeting people.

Disliked: The nightclub next door can be noisy so bring earplugs. Also if your room is on the first floor, sometimes you can smell the smoke from clubgoers in the back alley.

Liked: The staff were wonderful, the accomodation spotless, and the room was basic, but exactly what I was expecting. I wouldn't give this hostel a rating of 100%; that'd be too low. At least 150%.
