Liked: The close proximity to Temple Bar and Pearse station was ideal for our needs.

Disliked: Bit of a stitch up that we booked a 3-bed dorm/room but ended up with two bunk beds as I was expecting at least one proper bed as per the photos.

Liked: Great location - really close to everything. Breakfast options are varied and pleasant. The 24-hour reception makes check-in easy.

Disliked: Situated on a busy main road, it is rather noisy quite late. Ear plugs are recommended. Some better curtains would not go amiss, although this may depend on the room.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and helpful. The atmosphere was cozy, and I was surprised how easy it was to meet other travelers. I think this hostel also does an exceptionally good job of offering programing so you have a way of meeting new people if you're traveling solo like me.

Disliked: There was no locker underneath my bed. I wish they would have had something so I could lock up my laptop in the room during the day.
