Well located hostel in the centre of Dublin close to Temple Bar. Dorm room was quite spacious, though not the quietest (be sure to bring earplugs to block out any street noise!) I would also have liked more plugs to charge phones etc. The place was relatively clean and free breakfast the next morning was good.

Stayed in a 6 bed female. It was a maze to get to the lockers... It was outside. There was no soap in the bathrooms, the staff did not give good recommendations or directions. On our last day the main front door was broken. Male staff walked into all female dorm without knocking and was confused when asked to leave because one roommate was in her towel. Overall the hostel was clean (but smelly) Did not feel safe here, not a positive environment and night staff was rude and unhelpful. 4 stars

Great hostel in an excellent location. The rooms and all facilities were very well maintained and very tidy. The hostel had lots of events organised for meeting people (like pub crawls) and daily walking tours of the city. The staff were friendly and helpful. Excellent place to stay with a good vibe in a very central location.

Only complaint is that the wifi was very unstable. The rest is excellent. Great staff and good facilities. They could have a left luggage where you can drop your stuff when you arrive to early to check in. Instead they only have a locker for rent for 2 euros which not always worth it.

The beds were good but I had four main issues. 1. Poor wifi throughout the building. 2. Insufficient communal space. The common room was unbelievably cramped with no quiet areas available for trip planning. 3. Lockers were middle of no where and required payment. That should be a baseline service. 4. AWFUL BATHROOMS. You went from the sahara in the rooms to the arctic in the bathrooms. Cold rooms, metal doors, and push buttons for the showers. Insufficient amounts with poor distribution. AWFUL

Really clean, extremely well located and the atmosphere with the others guests is great! Only observation could be that the staff could be a bit more friendly. Other than that I had a great experience here. Would definitely come back!

Stayed in a private room with an ensuite bathroom and it was extremely clean. Each guest had their own key card. Was only there for one night's sleep but wish we could have stayed longer!

I didn't enjoy my stay here. The rooms were very very basic, smelled bad, and were absolutely freezing. The bathrooms were just atrocious as well, all the stalls had ran out of toilet paper, toilets were constantly dirty. I felt like I didn't want to touch anything in the whole hostel it was that dirty. Pros: Good location, good free breakfast, and the staff will set up an airport shuttle bus if you want (even for early morning flights, I took the shuttle at 4 am) for 7 eur. Stay somewhere else.
