Pros: price is good, especially for the location, close to everything! Very clean, beds are comfortable, and nice music-themed decoration. Cons: There are no lockers in the drooms so you HAVE to rent one from them (€10 deposit, €2 per day), if you don't want to leave your lugagge in the room, the lockers are really far away, in the back, through 5 doors, not very practical. Bathrooms are mixed, and there is not a/c in the rooms, either. Staff is ok, could improve treatment thou.

Cheap. Good location. Great staff. Don't be thrown by comments- beds are perfectly fine (even if you're lightly seasoned traveller) would return for sure

It was as expected. Major down side was how hot the dorms got. Only tiny windows too so no real way to improve the situation. Wi-Fi couldn't be accessed in the rooms Power sockets in the rooms were few and far between. No large lockers available anywhere (seriously guys, get under bed cages; you're not using that space for anything else). Breakfast was good but the room is too small to fit all guests in so ended up being really crowded. It was very clean though.

The location for the hostel was wonderful! It is close to St Patrick's Cathedral and about a 20 minute walk to Trinity College. We came to Ireland in the middle of July and had amazing weather as it was in the upper 70's with blue skies. But the downfall to this was that our room, really, the whole hostel, was extremely warm inside. Even with fans, it was hard to sleep at night for you would wake up extremely hot. It made it hard to want to go back after a day out.

This hostel was perfectly located - we got around to everything we wanted to see without needing to take public transit. The staff was friendly and helpful, it was quite clean, and the common areas were nice and comfortable. The shuttle to the airport (only to, you can't get it from the airport) was also great since we had an early flight. The only thing I didn't like were the showers - they weren't adjustable and were extremely hot to the point of discomfort! That was manageable though.

The staff was very pleasant and the security good, atmosphere was a bit lacking and it was super expensive to do a load of laundry (9€ for both washer and dryer). Other than that has a nice location right next to temple bar, and near city hall where free guided tours are if that interests you

The hostel is located in the city center, which is very good, you can get around very easily. Breakfast was good and staff were nice. If I ever go back to Dublin, I would stay here again.

No outlets by the beds, wifi barely worked, there are NO lockers for your bags/backpacks the only lockers they had were ting safes you could rent for the day that would barely fit a passport. The atmosphere was also not super inviting or fun. The bathrooms were decent, you get what you pay for. The location is superb though.

Located very close to most of the places you'd want to be, would be perfectly located if it weren't right on top of christchurch - purportedly the church with the most bells in the world.... Staff were helpful and friendly, and the place looks great and is generally very clean, they do hike prices quite a bit in the weekend, and for some reason there seemed to be next to zero interaction between the people staying at the hostel, never seen a common room so quiet
