First of all I felt very safe in this hostel - it was clean and the staff competent. The only tiny little I would have liked is a more of humour or easy going atmosphere, but I know the experiences a lot of quer situations ... How ever ... I can highly recommend this hostel.

Always our first choice to spend the first night, before exploring Ireland. You can get there from the Airport by Bus 16 for 3,05€ each. It is good located and the staff is verry helpfull. They also do have lockers for yout luggages. Nice rooms.

Everything was okay, but 1 Point shocked us at little bit. At our leaving day we took the sheets off and the look of the quilts and the pillows was not pretty. There were huge revolting stains.

I was happy with my stay; my only complaint would be that the plumbing for the sinks in each room is REALLY loud. It was very obnoxious especially because some people use the sinks late at night and early in the morning when others are trying to sleep.

You get what you pay for- largest room gets rather warm in the middle of the night, and the security is a little lacking- just make sure to bring along your own lock, but the location is close to the center of the city and easy to find

It took a ridiculous amount of time to check in which was very frustrating, but besides that I enjoyed my stay there.

Room was tiny, but spotless, which was fine as all I was doing there was sleeping anyway. Max ten minutes walk to the city centre, so very convenient. Corridor outside the room was very quiet when I was there (midweek). I left before breakfast. One thing, there was a very bright LED light illuminating the fire exit sign, which I was ok with because I always sleep with a sleeping mask anyway— if you don't have one and you need the dark to sleep, that could be a problem. Otherwise it's fine.

The coffeebar downstairs is a really great add-on. Creates a good atmosphere. Meeting new people has been more easy in some other hostels.

The staff at this hostel are 2nd to none, they are very friendly, helpful and professional. I can't say what other dorms are like but the larger ones are too small for how many people are supposed to sleep in them. And the rooms are very stuffy.

i had asked for a bottom bed but was not allocated one. The eceptionist kindly changed it which meant i could have been allocated it in the beginning. When i had arrived to check in around 11 am i was told i couldn't check in until 2pm. However, while i waited in the reception area, i saw another person being checked in immediately.....
