Liked: Handy for bus station

Disliked: Noise was completely impossible. Virtually no sleep. Bar downstairs v lively until c3:30am. Also traffic. If you go there, take a sleeping bag and lie down in the laundry room. That was quiet.

Liked: Very nice and helpful staff as always! Nice kitchen with basically everything you need, even free milk, while it lasts! ;)

Disliked: We had a room where the emergency exit light was very bright all night. I realize the purpose of these signs but it is very hard to sleep with a greenish light shining in your face all night! Also, the hostel is located above a pub, so if you are easily irritated by people having fun outside your window while you are trying to sleep, you should maybe choose a different hostel!

Liked: Good beds, quiet atmosphere when needing to wake early the next day

Disliked: Traffic noise, but that's nothing to do with the hostel itself, rather the traffic outside.

Liked: The location is perfect! And the kitchen would be handy if you're on a real budget.

Disliked: No wifi in the rooms and the place is like a maze! The rooms are squished into any place they can be, but the private room with ensuite bathroom was very spacious which was nice. Nothing so bad that would stop you from staying here.

Liked: Location is really good, central and easy to get around by walking. private bathroom in rooms which is quite nice. Free dinner every wednesday is great, food is not fantastic but it's free!

Disliked: my room is on the top floor and there's a bird nest on the other side of the wall, so it gets really noisy all the time. No wifi in rooms. People staying in this hostel don't really talk to others except their friends. It charges to use the computers, so you better have your own device. Breakfast costs 3euros, which i think not really worth it, cos there's only cereals and bread, you can get better food somewhere else. Be prepared to carry your luggage upstairs.

Liked: The location of this hostel could not be better! It's about a five minute walk to Temple Bar and a lot of other attractions and sights. The stuff was veeery friendly and helpful! They organized the 1 day bus tour to the Ring of Kerry and even gave us a discount for that. This tour was just AWESOME! If you want to stay a couple of days in Dublin and check out the area around the city it's the perfect way to stay there!

Disliked: there is no elevator and if you stay in the top floor it's a little bit hard with a lot of luggage

Liked: The staff are very friendly and helpful. The kitchen is really well equipt. It's not very big though. So, at times, there were no spare seats, and I couldn't sit in the common area.

Disliked: The hostel felt and smelt a bit damp.

Liked: I really loved this hostel! It was very cost efficient! It was clean and the staff did anything and everything in their ability to help you if they needed to! Also, they were just cool people and they recommended things we should do or try. Not only did they do that, but they recommended a lot of free things. My room was very clean and I actually ended up making fast friends with my roommates! Lastly, I didn't feel unsafe leaving my stuff out. Nothing was stolen from me and it was great. If you did want to use the lockers, they are extremely roomy!

Disliked: The only thing I was kind of unsure about was the things they offered in the hostel. In all of the rooms, they have a sign behind the door saying they sold all these things when they really did not. Me and my travel partner really needed an adapter and they did not have it!
