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

Liked: - the staff was great on arrival - wide variety of rooms - good security (after 11 you have to be buzzed in, then use your keycard to get past the 2nd door, plus there's a passcode to enter your room) - clean

Disliked: - showers weren't always hot and had barely any pressure - the hallways were a maze (but there are signs to help you to your room) - hostebookers only gave us the option of booking a room with 48 beds, which we did. it was too many people in one room, there was always someone being noisy so it was difficult to sleep

Liked: Pretty straightforward, easy instructions, when I did as signposted and told a passing member of staff about showers that did not work, they were functioning again in the evening. Good, firm matresses in dorm. Lots of staff looking after things, keeping the place clean and efficient.

Disliked: Not enough electric plugs. As I changed into a room for the last night to get more work done and be able to recharge more properly, the plugs were halfways up the wall! I don't have the British type of plugging, and since converters to computers and likewise gadgets are a bit heavy, I need to prop them up. At the communal area's little wallside tables it is possible with an Ikea mug, but in the room completely impossible. I had expected plugs to be along the floor, so that extra expense was pure waste for me, unfortunately.

Liked: Lots of facilities and good location.

Disliked: people seemed to be full time residents, and kind of had a sense of more entitlement than other guest. The rooms also had a strong smell of sweat, probably because of people living there.

Liked: 전체적인 분위기도 괜찮았고 충분한 시설이 구비되어있어서 불편한점이 없었습니다. 또한, 사람들이 모두 친절했고 쉽게 다가왔기에 혼자 여행 왔음에도 불구하고 심심하지않게 지낼 수 있었습니다.

Disliked: 건물이 생각보다 커서 처음 체크인을 했을때 방을 찾는데 시간이 조금 걸렸습니다. 처음 오는 투숙객에겐 방에대한 안내를 조금 더 자세히 해주면 훨씬 좋을 것이라 생각됩니다.

Liked: Amazing space with beautiful graffiti-style artwork, staff was always insanely helpful and friendly (while standing by the front desk the staff randomly offered me a chocolate digestive), people are friendly, WiFi is great, beds are comfy, nice computer room, wonderful BYOB bar in the basement, just a very wonderful hostel in general.

Disliked: God the 42-bedroom smells of sweat and body odor, though then again, it is a 42-roomer. Shower was a game of hot potato/cold potato.
