My friend and I were unable to get to Dublin until 6am due to ferry mishaps. We were worried that we wouldn't be able to check in that early, but the staff was very accommodating and that was very nice, to have a bed after camping out in a ferry port all night. The staff was friendly and very helpful in answering our many questions about anything and everything. Also the location was amazing! I was very impressed to find how central is was to everything we wanted to see.

Big hostel, well placed. Stored our bike at the sister hostel round the corner (smaller, quieter version of Abigail's). All staff very helpful.

This hostel has a great location - within the city, close to bus stations, etc. The staff knew the answers to your questions and were kind. Seems to be a popular spot so plan on booking here last minute.

I was in female room for 3 and it was great. I was able to see river from my window and the location is right in the middle of the city, it took me 5 minutes to get to airport bus stop.

Great location (right in the town centre, close to the bus station and Temple Bar area) and friendly, helpful staff. Cleanliness was lacking somewhat in the rooms and bathrooms. Otherwise, a nice place to stay.

It was in a nice location and the staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only complaint is that the room and bathrooms were not the cleanest. Also, in our room, the carpet and floor near the bathroom was soaked and unpleasant to walk on.

All in all a good stay. The room I was in had a leaky sink that left a large puddle on the floor, but the issue was addressed fairly quickly.

The location is really good, just not far from the train/bus station. Reading light and two plugs at each bed. Breakfast was included and not bad. Wifi signal is steady and you can receive it in the room. Staff are nice and helpful. If you are staying at a 8 people dorm, you have to wait to use the bathroom as there is only one in each room. And it would be nice if the bathroom get a little bit of remodel.

Feels like a hotel, but with shared rooms. You need ID to enter the building every time, which I consider good. There's a big living room and small kitchen on the ground floor, and everything else upstairs is just rooms. Breakfast is provided and it's reasonably good. The hostel is on walking distance to many nice pubs with live music, but there are also tourist traps around (places that raise prices sometime in the night, for example). It's easy to get to there from the airport, which is nice.

Really great hostel, and an excellent value. I'd stay there again if I'm back in Dublin. It's right next to Temple Bar, and every bed has 2 outlets right next to it, which was nice.

Really one of the best hostels you probably will find in Dublin city center concerning price and location. Realy in the heart of the city, next to The Temple Bar. The rooms are very clean and the bathrooms are nice and clean. Lovely staff who will answer all your questions concerning the hostel or the city itself. Real value for your money.

Very clean and excellent location right in Temple Bar - close to everything! Security is excellent though there are no lockers in the rooms (at least the ones I was in!). WiFi worked everywhere. Hot showers. Great included breakfast! Nice staff. Would def stay again!

There are personal plug points in each bed so that is really useful. Locker is available for rental but you can also leave bag in luggage room for free. overall this is a great place to stay compared to many hostels i've been in
