El hostel está muy bien, el personal de recepción es amable y están ahí si necesitas cualquier cosa para ayudarte.El ambiente es multicultural, gente de todos lados y hay muy "buen rollo", aunque yo fui sola y me sentí aislada; me costó trabajo conocer gente... habia varios grupos cerrados; pero sin duda repetiré en ese hostel cuando vuelva a Dublín :P

Auberge de jeunesse très bien situé dans la ville, à 10 min de Temple Bar. Malgré la proximité d'un train, rue très calme. La propreté est tout à fait acceptable, surtout dans les lieux sanitaires et j'ai eu de l'eau chaude tous les jours. L'ambiance est très bonne dans l'auberge le soir, et le personnel très agréable et disponible. Le petit déjeuner compris dans le prix de la chambre est très copieux. Rapport qualité/prix excellent.

The hostel was great, it was big and you can meet a lot of people if you are traveling alone. A couple of the staff members were not very helpful or nice, but there were others that would go over the top! The basement is awesome if you just want to relax and get some work done. Another thing is that it is pretty loud whenever you are ready to sleep and in the rooms there are always people going in and out, but then again it is a hostel! Would definitely recommend the hostel!

The man's showers didn't work well (cold water almost all the time), the rest was perfect but one essential thing like warm water was not provided :/

Bon auberge, sauna gratuit entre 6 et 9h, petit dej basic mais bon, litterie agréable. Les douches ont peu de pressions, mais ce n'est qu'un détail.

Stayed for four nights, showers were cold every night. We rented a locker the first day and we were told that we had to give a ten euro deposit for the key that we would get back when we returned it. Upon returning it we only received two euros back because the staff failed to mention we would be charged every day for the locker. Had we known this we wouldn't have gotten one...Definitely would not stay here again.

Kitchen is too small and WiFi is too slow, but the rest is perfect :)

Absolutely fabulous hostel! We stayed in a 3 bed private which was small but clean. The staff was very friendly although we stayed there for NYE and it was extremely busy at the reception. Showers and bathromms could have been a bit better (only 3 toilets and 3 showers per gender per floor), but it worked pretty well. The night of NYE was very noisy and the toilets during the night looked like you would expect it but the next morning at 7 they were already cleaned.

Overall very good. The showers were the main downfall. Couldn't change the temp and they were either too cold or burning hot.

Great staff and a really cool hostel. Only complaints are the wall outlets are really oddly placed in the rooms, and the only wifi is in the common areas. Also, during my stay there was never any hot water on the showers.

Within easy walking distance of just about anything in the city, but at the same time removed from the touristy parts of Temple Bar. Great atmosphere and staff. Security was great, after hours guests had to be buzzed in at the door and verified. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly, and all around great folks. Pub crawl was a blast.

Nice communal area staffed with friendly and helpful people at the reception. But no wifi in rooms, showers are cold (FREEZING if you have an early morning one), no lockers in rooms, few power sockets, and very thin floors (you can hear every creaking floorboard from upstairs). Not one of my most enjoyable hostel stays but it did the (minimum) job.

Love the front space where you can sit chat or use your computer!
