Liked: I absolutely loved the MEC Hostel. The georgian property was really nice and it was very quiet. The apartment number 2 I stayed in was really spacious and comfortable. I will definitely recommend this place to all my friends who come to Dublin to visit. The lady at reception was super friendly and really helpful. She delivered an exceptional level of customer service.

Disliked: The wasnt anything for me to criticise which is always a good thing.

Liked: 値段に対しての価値は有ると思います。朝食も+€2にしては十分と思いました。 16ベットルームでしたが、とても広く快適でした。 見どころまでも徒歩で十分に行けました。

Disliked: 部屋付のロッカーが無いのでセキュリティー面では不安は有るのかもしれません。 シャワーが固定式なので、お湯になるまで、少し水を浴びる事に、冬場はキツイかもしれません。

18 December 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Location- just off O'Connell Street! Price- I stayed in a 10 bedroom dorm for super cheap and there was plenty of space in the room. Staff- were super friendly and really helpful. Safety- they have a baggage room that is locked and has a security camera in it. Also each morning my card got changed so only people actually staying in the room THAT night would be guarrenteed access. Facilities- Didnt explore these too much but they had free internet and computers down stairs. My room was really clean and renting a towel cost only 2 euro. Room was warm and bathrooms clean but there is no lift.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: So close to the main street for tourists, great value for money, comfortable beds, good and cheap breakfast, nice old building with character, helpful staff.

Disliked: In the shower you have to keep pressing a button to keep it on which was a bit annoying but it was otherwise clean and you get what you pay for and some.

Liked: It's in a beautiful old georgian townhouse with huge airy rooms, lovely communal spaces and a garden, and minutes from the centre of town.

Disliked: The showers weren't very nice. Also no free lockers - this seems to be true of most Dublin hostels - and my ipod got stolen from the dorm. I was stupid though, and left it lying on the bed, so I suppose it could have happened anywhere.
