A very friendly hostel with great staff! Takes about 25 min walk to the city center but if you're lucky with the weather that is no problem :) A big plus is free pasta and rice!

Wow, bit of a surprise this one but it's really 10/10. The rooms were clean and the water was hot but the staff are what make this place worth while. Everyone was cool and friendly and interesting. And Celyn this is me mentioning you by name. You're welcome.

Crazy hostel with even crazier staff (in the best way). I didn't know what to expect when I booked this hostel and it turned out as a great place to stay. The only thing that was missing was an elevator but the staff helped us with our suitcases so everything was great! The facilities were always clean and the atmosphere was excellent! Another good thing was that you could party downstairs but the people in the rooms could still sleep in peace. Very recommended hostel, go there!

Staff we're friendly and sociable and tried to include all guests in evening activities. Additionally they were helpful and never too busy to help. Location is great and in the student area and not too far from the city centre

Good external security but only two underbed lockers in a four bed room is unacceptable. Staff friendly when awake. Accommodation beginning to show signs of wear. My dorm was very spacious but had no opening window, no table or chair. Why are expected to stand all the time or sit on someone else's bed?! Showers and toilets clean but very cramped with no shelves for toiletries nd tiny sinks. Needs more attention to detail.

One of the best hostels ever!

Great hostel. Very secure with two big front doors, though you can come and go as you please at night as all guests have keys for both. Breakfast is as much as you like cereal and toast with jam. Showers are new and very good. There's a pool table, table football and comfy sofas and TV with Netflix. Wifi is good, even in the dorm I was in. The hostel is in the student area so there are some drunks shouting at night. It's a 3min walk to Botanic train station.

There is nothing at all to moan about, I didn't miss anything, all the facilities are good. Nice and cozy atmosphere. It is nice to have a wee outside bit for the sunny days. Rooms are huge (6 doorm) and Staff is nice and relaxed.

There was an incident with another guest one night out of the 8 nights I stayed. I have to say that the staff were AMAZING and handled the situation extremely well. I was moved to another room immediately and the guest evicted. The staff are very friendly and go above and beyond. Breakfast was good. There are plenty of hostel activities going on throughout the week. They could use better ventilation in the showers though as mold is beginning to appear on the ceiling.

Absolutely fantastic stay here! The staff was very friendly and it made the place seem much more inviting than other places I have stayed. The rooms were always kept nice and clean, including the bathrooms. I loved that there was a common toilet/shower area, but there are also two seperate bathrooms in case you want privacy. Only downside is that it is a bit away from the city center, but the farthest walk I had was to Titantic and it was only about 35-40 minutes. Would recommend to anyone! :)

This hostel is extremely clean, thanks to the tireless work of the volunteers. Mark, if you read this: buy'em a pack of beer, they deserve it. The internet connection is only working properly on the ground floor, so this should be addressed. I felt very welcome during my whole stay and would definitely come back!

Wonderful place, super cute with a friendly atmosphere. I felt like I was on vacation with a bunch of friends, and friends of friends. Staff was great, especially Fox. I've only stayed in a few hostels but this is by far my favorite!
