Nicely done up inside, fantastic atmosphere, great location. Craft beers in bar awesome, good food and cool events but the huge price changes on rooms from night to tonight (although understandable to an extent) off putting for a longer stay.

It was a great hostel with a great environment. The one downside I had with it was that it was a little bit of a walk from the center and when it's freezing cold and late at night, you don't really want to walk that far to get back to the place you're staying at. The facilities were awesome though.

Awesome hostel! I stayed in a 6 bed female dorm with ensuite and it was really nice to have a bathroom that was cleaned daily. There was also a large shower /bathroom on the floor. Staff was awesome! The bar downstairs was a nice place for us to grab a pint and have a snack after a long day. Overall a very good experience and I will be coming back soon! Thanks for a great stay

We were received by this moody guy, who would make us pay for really everything outside of the bed and the toilet/shower. Basic stuff like towels, adapters would be charged. Also no breakfast included. Altogether, we had an average to poor stay, eventhough it was only 10 euro's a night.

It is a pretty big hostel. It is far from temple bar, but close to some attractions. I wish there were more restaurants around the area. Great facilities and great bar, a great place to meet people.

The place was spotless. I would use hostels quite regularly for a night out but my friends were hesitant since they've only really seen dirty and scary places in movies but they were won over with this place

With such a huge corporate place, you inevitably lose that personal flavor that real travelers seek. If you want a night club this is your place.

Very large hostel, with good amenities nearby. Located on Smithfield square, a good location for both the tourist activities located in Dublin's city centre, and the Guinness Storehouse/Jameson Distillery/Phoenix park. Bar area is great and has a good selection of craft beers. Clean, spacious rooms, albeit with no ensuites. Only downside is that prices fluctuate wildly and they do not always seem to have all of their options up on Hostelworld - one night could be €10, and the next €70.

Everything was great about my stay, the hostel is in excellent conditions, the bar was great, with live music and frequent activities. Only uncomfortable thing was the lack of hand soap in the bathroom inside our room.

Fantastic staff, rooms and location. Nothing was too much hassle. Great walking distance from everything and really easy airport transfers. Also very importantly the shower was amazing!!

The atmosphere was very sterile, staff short and business oriented and all in all much more like an hotel than like a hostel. You are not allowed to have drinks in your room so that you are always forced to go to the bar downstairs and be prepared to pay extra for everything.
