We booked this room because nothing was available and it was the best price. I was slightly concerned after reading TripAdvisor and wasn't expecting much. We booked a private room. The location is perfect. So close to everything we wanted. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The room itself was clean. Bed was comfy. The Bathroom was small and the...

My girlfriend and I stayed here in December. We stayed in a private room which was perfect for a cheap get away. Our room was huge with a double bed, and bunk beds even though we only booked a double room. The TV was of average size. The shower was very small but still perfect. We popped our heads into...

Very dirty hostel, specially the bathrooms. Just two showers for an entire hostel?! it's disgusting when you have to take a shower and the water is not running away so it all looks like you are in the pool, but very unclean and claustrofobic place. The only good thing about this place was good beds, comfy. The staff is quite...

The rudest hostel staff, no wonder this hostel is so popular with the reviews. Considering the condition of the hostel itself, they could at least reach a minimum score if they hire a more polite reception staff to make it decent. I brought my friend to the lobby of the hostel, without saying "Hello" or "Good evening" the reception confidently...

Do not stay here. Disgusting place rude staff and filthy rotten. AVOID. I would rather sleep on the streets of Dublin on a winters night than stay here. Only gave it 1 star because I had to rate it but it's -10

The location of the hostel is perfect and close to the center, still very quite neighborhood. The room (8 bed dorm) was huge, high ceiling, very bright; enough space to place your belongings, "lockers" for personal stuff. Mattress was good. Heating was working, but it was not enough to heat the whole room, I had to sleep in two shirts...

This hostel is not one I will go back to. It had everything I needed but I was not a fan. The location is kind of in a creepy area. I felt unsafe walking back in the dark. The bathrooms were not great. The wifi was only usable in the lobby downstairs. I did not spend much time in this...

I would implore you to avoid this hOstel. It may be one of the cheapest but it is not worth a penny of the money they do charge SIMPLY AWFUL, worse place I've ever stayed. To summarise; -Horrible and rude welcome from an extremely unpleasant, passive aggressive and defensive man. From this point we didn't want to stay but of...

I always like to be as positive as possible but this was definitely one of the worst hostels I've ever stayed in. Only reason I'm giving it two stars instead of one is because the staff was extremely friendly, it's just the hostel itself that was inadequate. Stayed in the 16 bed dorm with ensuite bathroom... which was disgusting. The...
