Liked: Great location, right next to Temple Bar and best kitchen I've seen at a hostel; super big, plenty of dishes and cookware and always very clean.

Disliked: It's right above a bar, so it gets pretty noisy.

Liked: This was the second time I have stayed in this hostel as the staff are friendly, the location is central and the rooms are clean. Would definitely stay here again.

Disliked: The only improvement that is needed is lockers in the rooms to lock valuables away, otherwise everything else was great.

Liked: The location within Dublin was good and the staff were all very helpful with my inquiries.

Disliked: The hostel is located on top of a roaring bar, which means it is VERY loud when trying to sleep. The beds are absolutely ancient with the springs almost poking out. It was also generally grimy, and no Wifi in the rooms.

Liked: It is very spacious and clean, the lobby has hundreds of discounted things for you to do, and a homemade book of free things to do as well, and everynight they have a free hostel event such as "cheese and wine night" or "icecream and biscuits". The kitchen was always bustling with friendly people cooking dinner, and there was plenty of space for everywhere with couches and tvs. The showers have the best water pressure I've ever seen in a hostel, and even the bathroom has tons of room.

Disliked: There was only one bathroom for 10 people, but it honestly didn't bother me much at all.

Liked: It is next to Trinity College so easy to find, just head for any Trinity College signs. Probably best to book the tours that leave from hostel because at least you know they will be on time unlike the one I booked with another company (because I did not want to see the farm on the one offered at the Times) and this company had incorrect times on their website. Next time would book the tour with that picks up at the Times.

Disliked: Slow internet, though that seemed to be the case at most Hostels in the UK. So frustrating!
