Perfect location that was close to everything. The shared toilet was kind of gross but everything else was great. Friendly, helpful staff were the best.

My sister and I stayed at 2 different hostels in Dublin, and this one was much more enjoyable than the first night. Staff was very friendly and helpful, and the airport shuttle was easy and convenient. I would definitely recommend this hostel!

Staff were friendly and the location was perfect! Right near most things in the city center. Rooms were clean and so was the common room. Only downside was there was a lot of older people which wasn't bad but was different than other hostels.

Three of us stayed for one Friday night. The hostel is OK, with nothing really special about it other than friendly staff. It's huge, so not really clean and it was very noisy as out room was near the smoking area. Our room was stuffy and smelly, tho I'm sure this is due to the other people there other than the hostel. I can see it being a good place for young people tho, as there were lots of socialising over breakfast.

The hostel was ok, not very far from the city centre and temple bar (only 10 minutes walk). Free breakfast is a plus (even though it is served only until 9.30). The main drawback is that the kitchen is very small and usually you have to queue to cook your meal. I was staying in a 4 bed dorm and it was comfortable and quiet, with no noise coming from the street behind it.

A slight walk to Temple Bar area and beyond but was nice being right next to the river. Staff were nice, the room was adequate with an en-suite bathroom. Would highly recommend A++++

Loved this hostel. The only thing was there were a lot of students from the university so you didnt get the backpacker feel since everyone already knew eachother. Overall nice hostel!

Good value for money. Likely, not the best choice for travellers who want to meet new people and have amusing activities. Most of the guests are Spanish or English learners who don't care at all to join other people. In addition, the lift doesn't work and the wi-fi connection is poor, therefore if you stay on the third floor your stay will be definitely compromised. Apart from that, clean and in a good location.

Staff was GREAT. The rooms were hotter than expected but I was upgraded from a mixed dorm to a female only dorm so that was nice. Bathrooms clean, breakfast was basic cereal and toast. It is quite a walk from O'Connell St but I enjoyed the exercise.
