The rooms were very clean, the common areas needed to me better maintained. But, this is a comment to the people who stay there as well. There are many people who do not pick after themselves and this is a shame. The staff were very helpful and the location in amazing.

The old commom room was great for groups and has been converted into a bedroom. Rather crowded during meals.

Did the job but wasn't a fun place.

Fairly good hostel and reasonably priced for Dublin. Super comfortable bed for a hostel. Disappointing not to have lockers in the rooms (even bring-your-own-padlock ones). Also not a fan of the button-press showers, single square toilet paper dispensers, and lack of enough power points in the room.

Be forewarned that there is no lift! If you have a wheeled suitcase, this means you'll be dragging it up at least 1-2 flights of stairs. Not very fun when you've just arrived tired from traveling.

The service throughout my stay was really rude. The room was average an the bathroom bleak as the shower leaked to the toilet. Was meant to stay there a second time but went else where down the road which was cheaper an better.

Unfortunately the WiFi was broken - for over a week, the place smelt a bit but other than that it was fine for one night.

A lot of people stay here, not all are younger backpackers so the atmosphere isn't the greatest for meeting new people. Free breakfast is a nice extra bonus. Wifi connection not great.

We were greeted by OJ or AJ who was really helpful and friendly, cant fault him at all. We went up to the room which was clean and well kept. However, only one socket in the whole room worked, a room of twenty, we had booked for a sixteen and paid for a sixteen but the room had more in it. This meant we both ran out of battery on our ipods and could not take any photos, a real down side. The toliets werent great, they leaked onto the floor and the seats were broken, but they were nice.

This hostel is in a good location and clean, so I'd recommend it! This hostel isn't just for younger backpackers, there's some older people (50+ yrs old). I stayed in the 24 person dorm and the wifi didn't work in the room. The wifi is decent downstairs if there's not a lot of people on at once. The free breakfast is a nice bonus.

Great location, nice atmosphere. I found the bathroom facilities ok but would like a little more privacy.
