Liked: The building is spacious, has a (albeit concrete) courtyard, the wifi works well and all over, there are multiple common areas for different environments, breakfast was orderly, the place is clean. Beds in the dorm room I stayed in (16 bunk female) have their own lights.

Disliked: The kitchen is a bit chaotic, and is small for how many people stayed here while I was over. There were a few vocal fights between residences, which made me feel unsafe.

Liked: I stayed in a 10-bed dorm. The beds and lockers were clean and modern and there was a washbasin and mirror. The bedding is very good for a hostel --- large warm duvets, commercial-quality sheets, and my pillow seemed pretty new. The central heating worked well and also the windows could be opened easily. The staff at the 24-hour reception were friendly and helpful, and the overall atmosphere was friendly. The free wifi worked well. The continental breakfast included in the price was more than adequate. Nice to be able to have marmalade on my toast! And a selection of teas. There's a small supermarket practically next door that's open until 10pm most nights.

Disliked: The hostel is in an area that, as a woman travelling alone, I did not like to walk through late at night. It was creepy (even for Dublin!) and there weren't many people around. Also it was quite a long way from the restaurant and bar areas. Another time in Dublin I would pay more to stay somewhere more central. There were no power points in the dorm. I had to charge my phone in the lounge area (which meant staying nearby) or leave it with the reception to be charged. The showers had broken push-button taps. I had to lean on the tap the whole time to get the water to come out, which made washing awkward. Also it was not possible to adjust the temperature.

Liked: All the essentials are covered in this hostel Friendly atmosphere all round, inclusive of both the staff and the guests Free WiFi in communal areas Free breakfast (Bread and Cereal only) Reasonable check in / out time

Disliked: Absence of any cleanliness in the hostel. Poor location. Mountjoy is not known to be a safe area by the locals in relative terms. The residents in the area are not friendly people to start a conversation. Walking 30 mins to / from the city center proved to be too much hassle. There's no direct bus to the hostel either. You're unlikely to make many trips to / from the hostel. Room: Only 1 power socket in a 8 bed dorm 1 room light in a 8 bed dorm, it's all or nothing Some guests appear to be long term residents here Toilets: 2 toilets for each sex in the whole building Toilets are clogged and left to overflow with sewage Aggressive light timer in the toilet leaving people showering in the dark Shower curtains are broken Toilets look and smell bad Communal facilities Kitchen is dirty, no dish washing soap provided so those communal plates / pans aren't clean at all Only one fridge for the entire hostel residents WiFi only available in the communal areas. No signals in the rooms. That's why you'll see everybody huddle in the reception area, because that 's the only place with Internet access.

Liked: The hostel was very clean. The room was spacious and there were lockers for my valuables. Also there was a sink in the bedroom.

Disliked: It is quite a bit of a walk to the city center and especially at nighttime I would not want to walk up to the hostel on my own. There is a shuttle to Temple Bar though.
