Spent by myself 5 days in this hostel this summer. The experience was really cool! The hostel is in the centre of Dublin, in a very quite area. The staff is super, very nice people. I falled in love with the kitchen; I had the possibility to cook what I wanted in a funny context. I slept in the biggest...

Great location and really easy to find! Staff were friendly. Breakfast was toast, cereal, a fruit juice and hot drinks which was fine. We stayed in a double room which was below the standard expected for the price we paid. It had a wardrobe and mirror but the bed definitely could have done with upgrading. The mattress and duvet seemed...

Really great place! Good location, serious full on breakfast (eggs and everything), clean, friendly. What more could you ask for? Definately recommending this place to my friends. Looks small from the outside but quite big actually.

This hostel was worth the 13 euros per night. It had clean rooms, fairly clean washrooms which were tended to every day, and a large kitchen/ rec room/ patio. Staff were also helpful and let you store your bags before and after checkout. Construction outside was annoying but understandable.

The hostel is located on the North or "ghetto" side of Dublin and is nestled among creepy casinos and sportsbooks. I did not feel comfortable walking around that area late at night. It is within walking distance to Temple Bar and the rest of Dublin's tourist areas and is right next to a gigantic shopping area. Security is good, however...

I booked a day before and I got an awesome price 13.50 euros per night and this is Dublin City, what a great price. Staff were friendly and smiley. Breakfast is super great. I had two bowls of cereals and lot of bread and jam, brewed coffee and some sweets pastries. Rooms are cleaned even we are 20 people inside...

The hostel itself is clean, they were just fixing the showers when I checked in. Worked fantastic!! Breakfast was pretty typical. I stayed in a mixed dorm, which turned out to be just me and 6 guys. They were all pretty friendly. (3 Brazilians and 3 Germans) My only issue was the neighbourhood. It's pretty rough, ran in to a...

A professional hostel, breakfast included is a great bonus. Toilet/shower fatalities are very good. Location is great, but the central street is noisy from 6am onwards, like any city. The prices are very good for such a central location.

Our first time staying in a hostel and we were nervous about it, turned out to be fantastic! Very clean, very accommodating, great facilities and we even had a bathroom in our room! No complaints about noise and the staff were great, especially the lady who cleaned our room, she was more than friendly! We will definitely make sure to...

- My one small criticism would be that breakfast was nice but would have been great if wholewheat/brown bread was an option. + Power outlets at every bed was excellent, not every hostel has this and it makes all the difference! Great location, clean comfy beds. Really nice common areas and very friendly staff.
