The shower was scalding hot, and one of only two lights in the room was broken, but other than that the room was spacious and it's a great location.

This is definitely my favorite hostel: it has a great location, for buses and places of interest, and no noisy pubs downstairs or nearby. The only thing I would like is to have a locker or a cage, to put my suitcase in, in the room. There are lockers, but these are placed in the general area. Also, I loved to be able to leave my suitcase and bags when I needed it. These guys are terrific!

We stayed as a family, 3 adults and 2 children. Staff were friendly, the room was clean and breakfast was good. What more could you want!

Lockers cost 4 Euro per 24 hours (It's very hard to find this information on line). Our stay was unfortunately let down by a case of food poisoning we think we contracted from the kitchen at the hostel. I prepared a meal there and even though I cleaned all the equipment I used before I used it we were very ill the next day. My main issue is with the state of the chopping boards in the kitchen; they smelt terrible and were covered in flies. The staff very very friendly and helpful.

It is my favorite hostel in Dublin. Very close to the center, modern and the staff is great. AND never waste your time fighting for an electrical outlet, every bed has usb and electrical outlet plus a light!

This hostel couldn't have a better location: it's just a few meters to Temple Bar. If you are considering in having fun at night in Dublin, that is definitely something you have to consider. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast is included. The cleanliness is very good. I just missed the private lockers in the room. As the beds are made of steel, it's easy to solve adapting/welding two drawers under each bed.

For my entire stay at this hostel, I was harassed by another guest who followed me for hours asking me about Jesus, requesting I take him to America, and trying to read my private information off my computer accounts. On my third day he became aggressive and demanded I give him money so I reported him to the staff and found out this man had been BANNED from other hostels and other guests here had ALREADY complained about him. I am extremely angry the hostel let him in to harass their guests.

hi rebekah as soon as this ws reported to us we asked the guest to leave, it was only then when we were notifing other hostels that it was brought to our attention that they had the same problem with him.
