Liked: Good breakfast space, fairly close to town.

Disliked: Our female dorm was filled up my middle-age women. What happened to 'youth' hostel? It's unfair that a young traveller can't get a place in a hostel because the dorms have been filled up by inappropriately aged people.

Liked: The staff was very friendly and the rooms did the job well. Nice kitchen area and kitchen tools. Location was also great!

Disliked: The area is a bit dark and empty at night as it is off of the main strip but nearness to city center was great.

Liked: This was the best hostel I have stayed at within uk/Ireland over the past 3 weeks. Staff were absolutely wonderful, facilities clean, rooms quiet. Excellent kitchen facilities. Simple breakfast of toast and coffee. Relaxed atmosphere, great communal areas for meet n greet, or relaxing. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

Disliked: This hostel was great, but could improve by having lockable storage in rooms (but do have storage lockers by reception) and more breakfast variety. Also the shower doors are see through in the girls shared bathroom, but not a major prob as the rooms are ensuite, so there is a lockable shower, may just need to wait longer for it.
