Liked: This was the cleanest budget accommodation I have ever stayed in anywhere in the world. The bathrooms are generally well maintained, large, bright and CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN. No hair-filled drains, no inches deep build-up of water in the shower cubicle, no broken plumbing fittings.... a dream come true. Owner and staff very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. Only 100 meters from the Dublin "Spike" right in the centre of the city and 2 minutes walk from the bus station. Couldn't be better unless you want a party hostel - if you do, go elsewhere!! I really enjoyed my stay in this lovely place.

Disliked: For me it is not a problem, but if you can't manage stairs, there is no lift, so beware as the property is not on the ground floor.

Liked: The location of the Hostel is really good.

Disliked: We had a little problem when we got the rooms. Indeed, we had reserved 2 bedrooms for 2 people each with single beds and in fact they gave us a 4 people bedroom with 1 double bed and 2 single beds. What we ordered using hostelbookers did not correspond to what they gave us. They made a 20% discount though on the total price for compensation.

Liked: The location was great. I could get anywhere I needed to go with about a 20 minute walk.

Disliked: There wasn't a shower on every floor, so if you were on the second floor, you had to go downstairs to shower. Also, if you're traveling with a big suitcase, there are a lot of steps that you should take into consideration and be prepared for.

Liked: The breakfast was good for what you pay.

Disliked: It was so noisy! The walls and floors were so thin and hollow that you could hear everything going on around you which made it very hard to sleep and was a constant annoyance.

Customer review

28 September 2009 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: I rented a single room over the weekend. Clean place, clean room, clean bathroom/toilets. Location is excellent, it's very near O'Connell Street and in city centre. It is also near the tourist centre and all Dublin City buses stop at O'Connell.Internet is only accessible on staff's single PC. Did not experience breakfast in bed because I left early each morning and had mine in the kitchen/dining. Price is ok for single, if you're looking for more socialising and shared dorms I believe there are better ones. This one lacks a chill out common room if you know what I mean. No ensuite bathrooms available.In summary, excellent location, decent price, well maintained. Would recommmend for people who prefer privacy and less people per room.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
