Liked: It is located in the city center, so you can see a lot by just walking. The stuff was really friendly and the breakfast was pretty good, especially when there were free pancakes.

Disliked: Unfortunately our second room was a bit small for 6 people, with little light in the room and it was hard to keep the air fresh. Otherwise, no complaints really.

Liked: perfect location, very good value for money

Disliked: quite noisy in the room even with closed windows since college street is still busy (traffic) even at 3a.m. soom rooms do not face college street, these might be the better choice (if available)

Liked: Right by trinity college so dead centre of town, staff were really friendly and helpful and the place had a good crowd while I was there

Disliked: Main gripe is the one shower per dorm, this led to long waits in the morning. Boo!

Liked: The location cant be beaten, between O'Connell St (city centre) and Trinity College. Most of the staff were great, the instructions for cheap public bus from airport was a nice touch, and the bathroom was relatively upmarket and nice. At first it was great having an ensuite room as no carrying all your stuff to shared bathroom...

Disliked: However after a day or so and when more people entered the dorm it became clear very quickly that ensuite sucks!! Because if someone is in there you have no access to shower or toilet or even basin. And often people really take their time! Also none of the facilities of a shared bathroom - ie handsoap, handdrier, bathmat. Also, layout of the hostel (v segregated /windy stairs etc) means not very sociable - few communal areas. Same with kitchen/dining room - set up as a long corridor so quite unfriendly. Compared with other hostels did not meet nearly as many people. Also SOME (not all) staff could've been friendlier. Guess it wouldn't be much of an issue if you were travelling as a group though

Liked: The location was the best! Very close to Temple bar area and O'Connel street. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Rooms and facilities were nice and cosy but the rooms could have been a bit more clean but they were okay. Safety was good even tho there was no lockers in dorms. Free breakfast with fruits (and pancakes at weekend) was great. Good value for money, would recommend!
