A fairly quiet hostel despite its size and incredibly squeaky doors. A bit pricey, but then again, so is everything in Dublin.

Pretty nice and safe. The personal its really helpfull and its conveniently close to the central station, so if you arrive early you can leave your bags on the lockers they provide and have a nice walk around.

This is the first Hostel I've stayed in and have to say I had a really good time. Staff were helpful with all my questions. They always seemed to have some event or another taking place such as walking tours in the morning, BBQ on the roof, and a fantastic pub crawl. So if your lacking stuff to do just ask staff or look at the events board in the lobby. Thanks! The only thing I didn't like was the absence of lockers in the room. I was lucky to have good roommates, but you never know traveling.

It is a huge hostel, and I am not a fan of staying in the big places that feel more like hotels. Despite a huge common area it was difficult to meet people. HATED the internet was only available in the common room and that is such an easy thing to update at the hostel. Verges on being impersonal, however, the whole place was saved by the staff. The staff was really helpful and have great suggestions for pubs and cheap restaurants.

this hostel is large and modern; so, as any large hostel, you can find a 24/7 reception, efficient service, professional staff. I appreciate the modern furniture and the new bath. There was also a flat tv and a safe in the room!

Very big! Lots of facilities, good value for dublin. A bit of a walk from the centre but not too bad. Very close to the bus station- good for coming from the airport

We only got one keycard between the two of us which was very annoying as either we had to leave together or someone had to stay in the room

A pleasant hostel to stay in. There is a kitchen, common room, dinning room and roof terace. The hostel is clean, yet we stayed on 2nd floor and there was a problem in our en-suite bathroom so we had to use "the public bathroom" on the corridor for a day or so waiting for our one to be repaired. The public bathroom was really dirty and revolting all the time...

I've staied two times in this hostel. Great value for money. Big and clean rooms with bathroom, breakfast included, staff very helpfull. Free walking tour of the city every morning at 10:10, pub crawl, shuttle service to the airport and much more. Maybe not the quietest one (it depends on which room you get) and not the best for solo travelers (lot of groups and families) but a good place at a great price.

The Internet is horrible. It only works in the common area, and even then it doesn't really work.

It's a great place to be if you want to check out Dublin. The staff is very helpful in person and via email. They're only a 10-15 minute walk from Temple Bar area, and they're right near the main bus station. They can also get a relatively cheap shuttle to the airport for whenever you need. I'm a fan.
