Liked: Friendly staff, great location in the centre of Dublin, in close proximity of tourist sites and main shopping fares, bus lines; clean toilets and bathrooms a dedicated plus.

Disliked: Large hostel with too small kitchen compared to the number of visitors, making the kitchen cramped and dirty. Need stricter policy for visitors' cleaning of kitchen facilities.

Liked: Easy central location, a couple of different lounges and areas to get away from other travellers if you need to

Disliked: Kitchen/dining was rally busy at breakfast, had to queue each morning, could probably be done better.

Liked: The location

Disliked: After staying at a WONDERFUL hostel in Edinburgh, this Dublin hostel was a complete let down. Bottom bunk doesn't give you enough room to sit in the bed without hitting your head on the top bunk. Top bunk gives you a lovely view to a stained ceiling. Floor was sticky. They expect you to bring or buy (for 5 pounds!!!) your own lock to lock the under bunk baskets they provide for "security". The bathrooms and showers are absolutely terrible (cold water, no place to sit things, etc.) The hallway constantly smelled like something rotting. Staff was also generally unhelpful, with the exception of one woman working in the kitchen.

Liked: The staff here is amazing and the location is perfect walking distance to everything in dublin. The place itself is a little old and some of the rooms were very musty and stuffy. There are loads of showers and bathrooms so finding a free one wasn't really a problem. The breakfast is good and gives you a chance to meet cool people. I'd definitely stay here again.

Disliked: Very stuffy rooms, largess dorms need more ventilation.

Liked: Cool atmosphere, enjoyed the fact that the walls are painted in bright characters rather than dull colors. Also good breakfast/common area. You can sit alone or at a long table and instantly be meeting new people. Also very close to the center and right across the bridge from Temple Bar, which is a Highly overrated tourist spot but has it's own class and is worth a walk around at night. Serving fruit with breakfast is also pretty fantastic. In fact, I arrived early in the morning because of a bus and it was too early for check in but they allowed me to store my bag for free and also invited me to have a free breakfast that day. The man who runs this place is simply delightful.

Disliked: The baskets under the female dorm beds are very very loud, though they have a lot of space so it's kind of a trade off. Also the bathrooms are kind of out of the way from some rooms. It's a very large hostel so if you are picky about that kind of thing, this might not be the place for you.

Liked: it was well located, very center, with free breakfast. the wifi was very good, runs throughout the whole building. there is a very nice free walking tour that picked us up at the hostel. the city link bus that took us to galway was right across the street. the staff was helpful and help us printed our bus tickets for free!!!

Disliked: it was VERY DIRTY!!! the sheets were extremely dirty, i didn't even want to sleep in it. the bed sank a little from being slept in too much. The cage under the bed was very screechy, i was afraid to pull out my cage for fear of waking up other people. Our room was deep inside the hostel, very hard to find, i got lost in the hostel all the time. There were graffiti all over the hostel giving it a very dirty look. There was no heater in the room. The hot water in the bathroom was very hard to control, it was either too hot or too cold.

Liked: I originally booked this hostel because of its location (which is fantastic anyway) but I was blown away by the character and facilities I found on this place! The staff is amazing, friendly and so helpful, 24/7 there to help you, the property itself is a character with millions places to spend your time and relax and the kitchen area was really beautiful. Not to forget the free breakfast every morning!!! Great hostel guys! I would come back anytime!!!

Liked: Large hostel, sort of an alternative feeling with graffiti on the walls. Group bathrooms for the larger rooms and also private showers are nice. Really good location, near OConnell Bridge and Temple bar area.

Disliked: Some of the staff were less friendly, the linens weren't the best but not the worst.

Liked: The location is great, right on the river and close to both the Temple Bar area and other sites. The hostel was okay, the free breakfast was actually good (fresh fruit, toast) for what you normally get at hostels. I stayed in a 16 bed all-female dorm, and everything went well there. There were a lot of bathrooms, but even they seemed to fill up quite quickly in the mornings (that's pretty normal though).

Disliked: The baskets under the bed for storage/safety were horrible. They squeaked so loudly when you opened them, it was ear-splitting. I felt so bad when I opened mine in the mornings because it must have woken some girls up. They were also really hard to lock and you could easily stick your hand in and pull stuff out if you wanted to. Luckily everyone in my dorm respected people's space and it wasn't an issue.

Liked: nice and clean beds, super friendly staff, central location, cool people stay there, big kitchen for everyone, the free walking tour was awesome

Disliked: breakfast times are a bit tough but okay, breakfast was really busy, I could not leave my luggage supervised because the room was full so I had to leave it accessible for every guest, when there are people coming out of the hostel you could just walk in even if you're not a guest
