I have stayed in several hostels in Dublin but this one was absolutely the best!!! Very friendly and helpful staff, everything really clean, nice rooms and enough space to sit down with your laptop somewhere, and have your tea or coffee. The kitchen was also quite big and breakfasts tasty (simple like everywhere, but quality of food was much better - not just the cheapest toast bread or marmelade). I felt really comfortable and at home there. Excellent hostel! :)

This hostel is in a great location. A stroll away from everything and temple bar. There is a cafe attached which is handy. The free breakfast is just toast and coffee but it a something.

Very good price-performance-ratio! The four bed rooms are really quite small but if everybody keeps his stuff together it's not a problem. The street outside can get noisy but you can't expect anything else, if you wanna stay close to the city center. We were surprised how clean the staff kept the showers and toilets! Breakfast is simple but free... would be nice to have some cheese or something though.

The room (no. 120) was very small for 4 people! Also it was a bit noisy because of the hand-dryer in the bathroom next door. The breakfast was enjoyable!

Rooms on third floor are too bright.

If you're on the third floor, don't expect to get much sleep; bright hallway lights shine into the rooms all night

When we got to our dorm, somebody was sitting on my brothers bed so we asked the staff for new sheets. We went out for drinks and when we came back there was another guy sleeping in his bed! My brother had to take someone else's bed ...

Nice hostel in a good location to visit all the old quarter. The girl who checked us in was very nice and she suggested us a really good place to have dinner and listen live music.

Overall very good. Only wish hostel would have notices asking clients to leave quietly early mornings for flights, coaches etc.

Great location. Private room was large for a hostel and clean. Staff were very friendly.

The coolest, most relaxed place that I've ever lived in.

The location is great, we couldn't sleep for two nights due to a group of youngsters (students?) who ran down the corridor screaming for hours. The ensuite bathroom is really small and when you shower you flood the place. Considered the price we expected a bit more.

Nice stay. Would not recommend for the solo traveler though as tough to meet people.

Good all rounder, can't go wrong really. Will stay again.

Good hostel, comes with kitchen to cook. Right near St. Stephens green and city centre as well as walking distance to many pubs. Bathrooms are coed though.

I stayed in a private room, which was small but clean and pleasant. I was only there one night but I would happily have stayed longer.
