Liked: All are perfect. Above all, very clean bed, bathroom, and dining room.The quality of breakfast is best of all hostel and b and b I have experienced so far. The time when the breakfast is available is longer than other hostel-3hours^^. And the location is also very good. It is very close to Trinity college, Crafton street, and O'conelle street-famous attractions. As well as staffs are very kind and friendly.

Disliked: Because all are perfect, there is nothing to be disliked.

Liked: Great location! And the staff is super helpful for helping you find cool dinner spots. Etc.

Disliked: It's next to a nightclub so it's loud. And when a girl came in late one night they just put her in our room and didn't give her much guidance on what to do so she woke us up. There were empty singles so I feel like it would have only been responsible to put her there for a night. Also the wifi sucks.

Liked: It has a great location, most places in the city are easily walkable! The staff is really great and friendly, willing to help you out with anything! I emailed them a question when booking and they responded promptly, which was great. We stayed in a room with 10 beds and it was very spacious, unlike some other places I've stayed. Overall, great stay.

Disliked: Wish the check in time was a bit sooner, but they had a luggage storage room, which was great.

Liked: This hostel was right next to Trinity college and a lot of the tourist attractions in Dublin. The staff was helpful, but the atmosphere was poor. Most people at this hostel were unfriendly compared to other hostels I have stayed at.

Disliked: There were no lockers underneath the beds to store luggage.

Liked: In a dorm room, which was simply furnished but very clean and spacious - what you want in a hostel. Also had a great live music bar two doors down, and was within wallking distance of the main touristy part of town, but being on the edge of the main touristy streets meant it was not too loud.

Disliked: Nothing.
