Liked: Location, Staff, Cleanliness, I felt safe all the time, very well organise, when I had a question the staff was always happy to help, the breakfast is amazing, covers all your needs, the time serving breakfast is great also because covers all the frame in time for breakfast, and I have to say that if you miss is because you don't want to have it, getting at any time into the hostel is also brilliant, I had a great time in Dublin and one of the reasons has been so good is because the home feeling I had at the hostel. Thanks

Disliked: Well I am sure things to improve they are but is really great value and fair the service with the price.

Liked: Great place, but quite noise... Very clean, good beds, big kitchen, but don't have elevator, so if you are going with big luggage think twice.The breakfast was great, also the free dinner!

Liked: ample kitchen, comfortable beds for what you pay, and excellent location.

Disliked: I wish this hostel had a common room, like a place where people can lounge around. The kitchen is large, and has plenty of tables and seats, but no place to really lounge about and converse unless you happen to be sitting in front of someone at a table and strike up a conversation.

Liked: Perfect location! Everything was within walking distance! The pub crawl was the best thing ever and there were so many different things planned that you could do!

Disliked: The kitchen could've been a little cleaner!

Liked: The free left luggage service was fantastic, the staff was incredibly friendly, and it was barely a 5 minute walk from O'Connell Street. I had a great time at this hostel.

Disliked: There really wasn't much that I was displeased about. I think at most, I would nitpick about the curtains not sitting very well (and letting lots of light in) or a little bit of noise from the road below the window, but nothing was bad enough that I would have complained.

Liked: Nice clean hostel, solid breakfast, lots of information on the city (especially with info for cheap places to go). The location is also very great, especially for the price of the hostel. A great value!
