Unbeatable location right in the heart of Temple Bar. The staff were friendly and helpful. We received a free room upgrade on arrival. Good breakfast and very clean showers etc!


Good place to stay. If you're going to party lots, stay here. If you value your sleep, don't stay here because it's in the heart of temple bar. Staff is friendly and always willing to help. Wifi connection is poor. Will defs stay here again!


Not much point paying for late check out when the cleaners repeatedly came in and one point started cleaning up. Otherwise great place, great location, good price

Staff was so gentil that kind of mad my trip. Nice atmosphere and a perfect location. The bedrooms are a little small, but it is safe. The onyl bad thing are people that are living there, they are wide, but nothing you can't ignore. I would come back.


The Location is perfect. Unfortunately our double room was extremly smelly! breakfast was poor! If you only need a place to sleep it´s good.


basic, good location


Nice location, nice staff but our double bedroom was tiny: once you put your suitcase on the floor, you can barely walk in the room. It was pretty cold and we could feel the wind that blows through the sides of the window and there was no TV. In the morning, I ran out of warm water while showering. In general, the building needs a good renovation to fit modern standards. The breakfast is only toasts and drinks.
