This hostel is located just in the center of famous Temple bar district! Should I tell you more? It is really cool to do pub crawl when you are living just next door to the all bars and pubs -- you don't need to worry about anything! Just drink and enjoy the unforgettable atmosphere of Temple Bar

My shoes got stolen, but the manager of the hostel managed to get them back because of the CCTV footage.

Hey, Not a problem. But you have to admit leaving your shoes in another room and then getting a 'friend' to leave them outside would make the shoes partial to a trip of their own. In any case spoke to the gent involved, he didn't seam surprised or saddened that we traced him. Bit of an odd situation all round, but all worked out in the end. 3 for security is unfair tho, Did I mention you shouldn't leave your shoes outside in the hall ?? All the best, The Crew

My friend and I (2 females, 25 y/o, Dutch) stayed here for a couple of days and we had a great time! The hostel as clean, the atmosphere was very relaxed, people (both staff and other guests) were very friendly. The hostel was big, but still cozy, we loved it. The location was great; in the middle of the Temple Bar area; restaurants and pubs nearby, (yet the hostel itself was very peaceful during the night). Overall a great experience!

great location in the middle of temple bar. hostel tries to pack in as much as possible, including one bathroom only for a room of 12 (and only one shared bathroom for the entire hostel of 200ish) which meant wait times were big. its quite a small hostel and has a lot of people, so even the common areas are crowded. but, you are paying for location, and that is what you get.

Otherwise I was very happy with my stay, but the wifi and public computers did not work which made it harder to make travel plans.

The location of this hostel was perfect, right near Temple Bar and a short walk to Trinity College and other major attractions. The staff were very knowledgeable and friendly as well. As some other reviews mentioned that showers are bit difficult to use, but for the price and location this is a very small discomfort. I would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone!
