Liked: The location is perfect! And the kitchen would be handy if you're on a real budget.

Disliked: No wifi in the rooms and the place is like a maze! The rooms are squished into any place they can be, but the private room with ensuite bathroom was very spacious which was nice. Nothing so bad that would stop you from staying here.

Liked: The staff are very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is really well equipt. It's not very big though. So, at times, there were no spare seats, and I couldn't sit in the common area.

Disliked: The hostel felt and smelt a bit damp.

Liked: Location is really good, central and easy to get around by walking. private bathroom in rooms which is quite nice. Free dinner every wednesday is great, food is not fantastic but it's free!

Disliked: my room is on the top floor and there's a bird nest on the other side of the wall, so it gets really noisy all the time. No wifi in rooms. People staying in this hostel don't really talk to others except their friends. It charges to use the computers, so you better have your own device. Breakfast costs 3euros, which i think not really worth it, cos there's only cereals and bread, you can get better food somewhere else. Be prepared to carry your luggage upstairs.

Liked: The location of this hostel could not be better! It's about a five minute walk to Temple Bar and a lot of other attractions and sights. The stuff was veeery friendly and helpful! They organized the 1 day bus tour to the Ring of Kerry and even gave us a discount for that. This tour was just AWESOME! If you want to stay a couple of days in Dublin and check out the area around the city it's the perfect way to stay there!

Disliked: there is no elevator and if you stay in the top floor it's a little bit hard with a lot of luggage
