Liked: good location, great kitchen

Disliked: the beds are for people under 6ft as i was over i didnt fit in it! also i couldnt sit up as the bunks are so close together making reading in bed rather difficult. no real common room just a kitchen with seating making meting people unless you happen to share a table with them whilst eating very difficult! the manager is erm intresting in her approach.. although the rest of the staff were very helpfull!

Liked: Staff were friendly and it was clean and tidy! We got upgraded from a 10 person dorm to a 4 person dorm which was fantastic!!

Disliked: Not many people hanging out in the common areas but possibly because we were there on the quiet nights.

Liked: It was clean, in a great location and with incredibly helpful and just lovely staff.

Disliked: The walls were THIN. Just fair warning that you will hear every sound from the hallway in your room so if you're a light sleeper, you won't like it/

Liked: It was very convenient to get to all the main places in Dublin City and the reservations desk was 24 hours and always friendly and knowledgeable.

Disliked: Sometimes the heat wouldn't be on even though it said it was on a timer. I was there in the winter and I would walk into my room at a time you'd think the heat would be on at an hour when people would be sleeping for for some reason it wasn't. You could turn it on yourself but it took a while to heat up

Liked: very clean facilities, very helpful staff. Overall a great place for lodging cheaply.

Disliked: It felt like a hotel, which, if you are looking to meet people while traveling, wouldn't be a good fit. There wasn't really a general "hang out" area other than the kitchen.

Liked: Rooms were spacious and well-lit and had plenty of electrical outlets for charging laptops/phones/etc. Every bed gets a storage locker. Free tea/coffee available in the kitchen all day and breakfast is great, especially on weekends when there are free pancakes! The staff are awesome and the location can't be beaten.

Disliked: Guests aren't supposed to use the kitchen between 10 pm and 7 am, which I found a little bothersome.
