We felt the breakfast was poor compared to other hostels we had been to in Ireland

Good location out of the way, but still very close to Temple Bar and the sights. It's a bit of a walk from train/bus, as the only downside of location. The hostel can be a bit loud at night, but not what you might expect being so close to Temple Bar. Bring earplugs if you plan to sleep. They're very much a purpose-built hostel, and don't really bend over backward to accommodate guests. If you need a safe, clean place to sleep in Dublin, this will get the job done. Don't expect much more.

The internet was terrible and didn't work in the rooms. The toilet leaked all night, you could hear everything going on in the hallways.

Good ambiance, great location. Walked to St Patrick church, Jameson distillerie, guiness and more. Movie nights, good wifi, two common rooms. Accepts all ages. Disliked: breakfast was very minimal (toast and cereal)

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.
