I really enjoyed my stay there, the free breakfast is great and the tv/internet room as well. The staff was helpful, but there were a lot of informations (touristic info) that they couldn't give me. And the bathroom floor was always wet (because of the shower's position), which can be a little dangerous. Apart from that, everything was great.
First day, when i slept, although i live in a 6 mix dorm, but i don't know why....a girl and a boy slept in the same bed, by the way we have already 5 people in the room!!!! how the girl or the boy came??? the security is very big problem!!!
The hostel was excellent, as well as the one in Galway. Thank you
Rooms were a little small but an excellent location. Fast laundry service and wifi everywhere.
I came back to this hostel because of the location and facilities
Was good loaction and a decent hostel... not really very social but i found that hard to find in Western Europe...eastern Europe hostels are a lot more social, friendly and party hostels... i didnt like like how the staff was inaccessible behind the 2 glass ina cabin .. as if you are at the bank at the teller's counter... lacked personality
The hostel was situated in the heart of Temple Bar. Rooms lacked ventilation and the bathroom which is located in the room smelled and looked dirty. Great location if your looking to be close to the city center and parties. It was a bit noisy at night.
The internet only worked in the common room and even in the common room it was the slowest internet I've ever seen. The shower was more like a commercial power washer. It was painful to shower. And the lockers only accommodated the locks that you could buy from the hostel (not personal locks). My locker also wouldn't open when the person on the bottom bunk was sleeping. However, it was a great location. It was clean and the staff were very helpful and friendly.
Room is not clean,facilities is every poor,room is too samll..
Excellent Staff. .very well organied hostel, pleased to find for one euro will keep bags secure alday after check out Bonus :)
Best place to stay right in the middle of the most tourist area. Expect to sleep a little because it's near the best (tourist) Irish pubs, so it's Not the place if you a looking for rest and peace. It's near most Dublin's attractions as well. If I ever go back to Dublin, I will definitively choose it again.

Amazing location and an overall fantastic place to stay in Dublin. The staff is beyond friendly and helpful, as well. This hostel is clean, has nice amenities, and is a great value. I really enjoyed stayin here. My only complaints: breakfast is just toast and coffee and the wifi is only available in the kitchen and common room, both of which lock at midnight.
Comfortable place and great location. Didn't really have a lively hostel atmosphere and there wasn't any choice for breakfast, it was just toast. Other than that I really enjoyed my stay. Rooms and bathrooms were really clean.
The Staff was great! The people that stayed there were really friendly. Theres a kitchen and a "dining room" that functions as a hang out area. You can bring in your own beer and enjoy dinner in--a MUCH cheaper option than trying to go out in Temple Bar. They have all the pots you need to cook pretty much anything. Only downside is that not everyone is great with cleaning them after using them. There's a 2nd floor common room, but I never went there. Do the free hostel walking tour--its AMAZING!

It's a great hostel to stay, mainly because of its location.
Breakfast left a bit to be desired, other than that a nice place, would stay again!
Great Staff and most comfortable rooms after staying at 2 other places. Bathroom and shower in room A . Best location right next to Temple Bar. Great Stay!
This hostel is right on top of the Temple Bar district where you can make you're own pub crawl or grab some great food. The staff was awesome and there is free wifi.
Had food and drink stolen from the fridge, and staff did little to alleviate the problem with an 'oh well' attitude. This put a dampener on an otherwise fun stay in Dublin. Hostel great place to meet people and party however, and a great location helps this.
