08 January 2010 Stephanie would recommend this property

Liked: It is a very new hostel, and the efforts to maintain its cleanliness are wonderful. The rooms are very simple, and the mattresses are definitely cheap, but everything is well kept. The shower has great pressure, and the water gets nice and hot. Perfect for the cold weather Ireland is having!

Jesse Church

05 January 2010 Jesse would recommend this property

Liked: This was a great spot to have your home base in Dublin. A full (almost commercial/industrial) kitchen allows anyone at anytime to cook a meal. The location is very central and close to most attractions in downtown Dublin. Although I've stayed at hostels where meeting people was a lot easier, if you hang out in the kitchen long enough you're guaranteed to meet at least some people. Having Doyle's pub right next door also helps you get in with the locals

Disliked: Jesse left no negative feedback.

23 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Very nice location, close to Temple Bar and the center. Quiet during the week, but more noisy during the week end (a lot of people and music from the pub downstairs until 2h30 am).But it wasn't really annoying, we could sleep well without problems. The best is to enjoy Guinness well before sleeping ;-)Good breakfast, and good beds.I recommend it!!

Customer review

19 November 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: the bathroom was lovely with a really powerful shower, the staff were really friendly and helpful and it was a chilled out relaxed atmosphere. There was even a flat screen tv in are room which was a real bonus! It was quite at night so managed to sleep well. on the downside the floor was very dusty (especially underneath the bed, this seriously needed cleaning!) and there were absolutely no hooks so no where to put coats and towels- make sure you bring hangers and a mirror!

Liked: Liked: 1) staff: very friendly and helpful; 2) Kitchen: just perfect; 3) Location: unbeatableNot so good: 1) noise isolation in my room (29) was very poor: I wanted to close the window the decrease the noise from the street when I realized it was already closed...I could hardly sleep on saturday night2. Poor room furniture: 4 beds...and only 1 chair (a table would make it better)3. Shower: water preasure was great, but temperature control was broken... fortunately it was in the hot side (although scalding!)

Amber Martin

30 October 2009 Amber would recommend this property

Liked: This was the first even hostel I have stayed in, and its by far the best experience I could have had. I stayed for 5 nights, and I was able to meet a ton of different people from all over the world. The staff is great, and willing to help you with anything. There is a full working kitchen for people like me on a budget where i can't eat out every night. When they say they are in the heart of Dublin, they weren't kidding. Looking out any of the windows you can see trinity college. Its very close to everything, and the staff helps you out big time with suggestions of where to go. The hostel in general was very clean and tidy, which is great when your sharing a room with 9 others. All in all, I would recommend this hostel to anyone whose looking for an affordable and fun place to stay while your exploring Dublin.

Disliked: Amber left no negative feedback.
