The atmosphere is quite good, a bar downstair. However, there is just lukewarm shower water -- which is a big problem in the cold Ireland.

My room wasn't so clean and wasn't so well facilitated. However the ambiance and bar is just perfect, just as the location. Very much recommended for young travellers.

Great location, within walking distance of the main city centre. Upon arriving I was greeted by a lovely girl, full of chat. It was a good start. There was no confusion about the booking, or where I would be sleeping. Very organised and professional. You get a magnetic card to access the hostel area, and your room, which is great security. In the kitchen, everything you might need to cook for one or twenty. Free wifi was also a bonus. Downstairs the bar is buzzing but relaxed. Nice spot.

6 bed room was small 4M by 2M. Couldn't take a hot shower luke warm water with no temperature setting. Noise from bar below if on 1st or 2nd floor. Free breakfast is basic. Kitchen unkept old food left behind and not thrown out meant no storage space. Have to walk through bar to get to hostel. Because of the bar staff are trying to do 2 jobs at once. Okay for 1 or 2 nights if location is your biggest priority.

Overall a good hostel. Unfortunately, I shared room with a person who snored so loud that the whole room was vibrating.

Bru Bar was a great stay. 5 min walk from the heart of the city and the place itself is a night in itself with live music, pool, and beer. Beds and bathrooms were clean. Only minor thing is that the lockers under the bed have no way to secure them short of locking your bag to them, but the staff will hold onto anything valuable for you so not that big of a deal. Definitely recommend.
