Liked: I had read that this hostel only gives one key per room and was worried about this, but booked it none the less as it is cheap and the reviews were good. As it turns out, everyone gets their own key now, so everything was great,

Liked: Excellent hostel! The location is amazing, of course, and the staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Definitely check out the bar for the live music because it's totally worth it. I would happily stay here again.

Liked: Great location right in Temple Bar and breakfast was included.

Disliked: The elevator didn't work correctly the entire time I was there and that was pretty unfortunate considering I was on the 4th floor. Also, there is no security. There is no buzz in system and the desk people don't even look up as you come through the door and march up the stairs. There is a key card system for the rooms, which also doesn't work at all. So we settled for knocking and letting people in. Basically, in the middle of one of the busiest places in Dublin, anyone can walk in and get into a room.
