Liked: The location was excellent, in the heart of the city and the center of Temple Bar so many pubs around and close to almost everything. Staff were very friendly and helpful, common area with lounge and kitchen were good for hanging out and meeting fellow travellers.

Disliked: You get what you pay for, so it's not very flash and does not have many other services in the room. Bunk beds were simple and not much to it.

Liked: Price, breakfast typical but ok (except coffee). Bathrooms in rooms nice with showers. Atmosphere great and their bar is fun if touristy.

Disliked: The whole room sharing a key could have been a problem if more people were there as one can get awoken to open the door. Usually bars and restaurants attached to hostels are cheaper too

Liked: Proximity to Temple Bar, rooms were clean with ensuites.

Disliked: Only one key per room. Other guests dont understand the rule so they keep the key. As we were on the 3rd floor we had to keep going up and down to get someone to let us in.

Liked: Close to City Centre, clean room, hot water in bathroom..

Disliked: The hostel provides only one key for the whole room, so you have to disturb other roommates some times. The staff was not the classic friendly, helpful, funny staff of hostels, they are very professional in a bad way :P

Liked: Really good place to stay in the heart of Temple bar, great bar downstairs with live music and easy to get to all the attractions close by

Disliked: Only had one key to a 4 bedroom dorm - doesnt really work when the people in your dorm have the key and you cant get into the dorm. Depending on who you room with it can be extremely annoying

Liked: Breakfast was included and had a decent range. The common room had a good selection of brochures and books to help plan things to do in Dublin. The rooms were fairly clean.

Disliked: On my first night, there was no electricity in the room. This meant that the heater didn't work. Problem got fixed, after a lot of insistence from me, in the middle of the night. On my third night, the shower didn't work. According to the other occupants of the room it hadn't worked for 2 days. Staff knew about it but had done nothing to fix it, and were still allocating people to that room. There is only one key per room. So for people to get into the room late at night, either someone has to wake up to let them in, or the door is left ajar which is not that safe.

Liked: I really like how central this hostel was, you had all that dublin had to offer at your finger tips, aswell as a bar down stairs with great music and a great atmposphere.

Disliked: There was only one key per room, which for us wasnt a problem, we didnt face any problems, but it would be a bit easier if there was more than one available.

Liked: Everything. Friendly and humerous staff with lots of tips and info. Clean rooms, comfy beds and quiet (we were there during the week though) Very good position for getting around the city and if you're up for partying you're in the spot to be. Great pub with lots of character.

Disliked: Nothing about the property but the drink prices at the pub are a bit exhorbitant!

Liked: Location was fantastic. Staff was great and knowledgeable (well, most of them, lol). Rooms were very clean as well as the linens provided. Even though I had some dislikes with the property itself, it still ranks average cause the sleeping arrangements were cozy and that's the main point. They also give me a nice goodie bag at check-in which is always a treat and makes you feel welcome.

Disliked: The place itself had no personality and no comfortable common area to relax if you felt like hanging out for a while but didn't want to sit on your bed. They don't have a computer for use for those who don't like to travel with the weight of a computer. But still a decent place to stay cause the rooms are super clean and of course the staff is great.
