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.

Liked: Rooms were very clean, the location was great, and it felt very safe.

Disliked: If I had to identify something, I might say that the halls echoed a bit, but it is the best hostel I've been in so I really have no complaints.

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: 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.
