The hostel staff were super nice and helpful, and the hostel's location was unbeatable. You walk out the door and you're right on the River Liffey, and right in the Temple Bar area. Although the area is pretty touristy, you aren't a far walk from more local pubs. The complimentary breakfast was simple but enough, although it kind of freaked me out that the yogurt sits out all morning. Overall we had a great stay at this hostel, and would totally go back!

Nice location. Staff were pretty helpful and nice. The lockers are at the common area and you have to pay for either 6 hrs or 24 hrs (from what I can remember). They come in 2 sizes, big and small. Small one for 6 hrs costs €1.50. When I was there, there weren't always available ones for rent.

The hostel is ok if you're looking to stay for a couple of nights. Every thing looks, old and dirty, the are strange smells, the beds are too small. The breakfast is good. The carpets are dirty. The storage room is aweful, full of dust and dirt. I dont know if it was the location but I saw too fights and too many drunks just outside the hostel'de entrance. Again, It's ok but i would look for something else next time.

This hostel is in a great location and has a great open area for hanging out and eating. The included breakfast includes bread, yogurt, and fruit. The rooms are relatively clean and the bathrooms are cleaned daily. It is very easy to get to and accessible.

Staff helpful and friendly. Breakfast is the best I have ever had at a hostel. Yoghurt, toast, cereal, boiled eggs, fruit, juices and coffee/tea. Located right in temple bar and within walking distance to all attractions and airport bus

It's a really nice hostel. Perfectly to find and the staff's absolutely great. The rooms were good but the shower was a broken, there was water coming out all the time which was a bit weird but didn't affect us at all.

The internet was slow and at times troublesome (wouldn't connect, wouldn't load, etc.), but aside from that it was fine.

Fantastic location, big rooms, the bathrooms were in the rooms which caused the carpet to get wet and mouldy. the area around was a little rough and there were no lockers. Included breakfast was good.

We stayed 1 nicht. The location is perfect as it's close to the pubs and tourist attractions.

Really nice staff, cool atmosphere. The only real issue we had about cleanliness was because of other travellers in the dorm... Really good place for backpackers, good location (but even if it's near Temple Bar, don't forget to go out for a beer a little bit further in the city, you won't regret it!)

Given the reviews I read online, I was disappointed in this hostel. Positives: great location, felt safe, good free breakfast. Negatives: felt very dirty, shower was poor, staff not helpful, no lockers in rooms, no additional bathrooms on floor, had my labeled food in the fridge eaten.

I would choose this hostel over many others any day! Everything's great except there was only one shower and toilet for 10 girls, which doesn't work. However it was cleaned every day and the staff are great and helpful, the atmosphere is so welcoming! The location is killer!!! Everything is reachable within walking distance. Stay here, you won't regret it!

The hostel is clean and PERFECTLY LOCATED. Breakfast is good with sufficient quantity and variety. Beds are clean and comfortable. It is very noisy - both from the street noise (in June it didn't get dark until the middle of the night) and from other guests. Bring earplugs!!

It is very simple and not very clean. I wasn't expecting something similar in Dublin. There are better options for this price. Poor value for money.

Overall this hostel isn't bad. It's located right on the river within walking distance of O'Connell Street and the Airlink stop. Overall the hostel is pretty clean, you collect fresh sheets at check-in. My only complaints were that the pillows were about as thick as a folded t-shirt, and there were no lockers in the rooms themselves (small lockers for valuables are available downstairs though).

Only one bathroom for the 10 bed dorm. Every time have to ring the bell, staff will access you to come in, not right away to let me in, have to wait in front of door after ringing few times, not convenience !!!!!!! Breakfast is good, common area is spacial and location is good but lille bit far from coach station
