Liked: The location was good.

Disliked: We were booked in a 6 bed dorm, but when we arrived we were put into a 10 bed dorm with no warning or apology. The fridges are also supposedly cleaned twice a week (at least), looking in the fridges, this can't be true. They are disgusting, with old food left in there and puddles of strange liquid pooled on the shelves. The toilets were always clogged with toilet paper or vomit. The bedrooms were so hot (due to overcrowding and no aircon) that you wake upon the morning covered in sweat and going to sleep is near impossible. The rooms also have paper thin walls and the windows in our would slide down during the night, meaning you cant shut out all the street noise (and there's a lot, because the hostel is on a busy road for trucks and buses).

Liked: Very new and clean and even though the staff weren't locals, they did everything they could to help me out. They even helped me book a day trip and a cab since I didn't have a working phone. The full working kitchen was wonderful and I wish we could have used it more but one group seemed to always dominate that area and the refrigerator space (so if you are lucky and this place isnt crowded I would recommend it)

Disliked: Very very loud. The halls echo and the doors slam so if its a weekend dont plan on getting much sleep. If you are a heavy sleeper or like being out until 5am then you will be fine.

Liked: The location, and cleanliness.

Disliked: They didn`t had a vending machine for soft drinks, or at least a fridge. If you are thirsty at 1 am in the morning, there is no place from where you can buy some water. Also the taps from the toilets are both running on hot water, so once again, imposiblle to drink water. The shower did not had any hangers or anything , so you had to improvise as to where you were to leave your clothes or towel whilst inhe shower.

Liked: Its a hostel not a hotel. So if that's what you came for then it's great. Total value for money. Great location coz it's walking distance to temple bar but away frm all the chaos. Noise frm cars on the street may keep you awake. But i have no complains.

Disliked: Rooms are messy but thats coz of the occupants,me included

Liked: The location, can't put emphasis on how good it is. Two minute walk from O'Connell street , access to buses and the Luas. Good information available at the desk and staff are friendly. Street is not the best but the hostel is very secure. The common area's were nice, large enough eating area beside the kitchen with couches and a nice area out the back. Enjoyed the fact that there was a double room on offer and not only just dorm rooms. The room was a good size and warm!

Disliked: In the double room there was a green fire exit sign, which was VERY bright.. Positioning of it is quite ridiculous. Simple solution, covered it with a towel. Also the sound-proofing on the room is not great. Not much noise from the street but doors banging and people walking up and down the stairs was quite audible. Especially at 4 am in the morning. Having said this, not necessarily the hostels fault. Just things to be aware of.

Liked: Spire Hostel is very centrally located, within walking distance of many of Dublin's main attractions. The hostel was clean and comfortable with spacious common areas including a large kitchen, TV room, smoking porch, and pool room. I appreciated the lockers available for storing valuables, which cost 1.50 Euros a night to rent.

Disliked: The immediate area around the hostel was not particularly nice. Also, the windows in the room did not open and the rooms could get quite hot and stuffy at night.

Liked: The only worthwhile thing about the hostel is the location.

Disliked: It was too expensive for what they offered; we were locked inside the hostel until we could find a member of staff to let us out; it was dirty, even for a hostel; other guests came in extremely drunk, and were allowed to wake everyone up; and the wifi they offered only worked about half the time.
