This was well located and cheap, but security was very poor. Some young guys who had arrived the night before had their money and credit cards stolen by an intruder. There was only one key per room so the room was left unlocked most of the time and the thief just walked in pretending to be a guest. Also the hot water was only barely lukewarm which is an issue in a Dublin winter.

Front desk staff nice and competent. The woman cleaning cold and brusque. If you don't want to be grossed out by filth swept into the hallway, check in after 4pm. The bathroom in the room nice and clean.The bed linens new and fresh. It is quite noisy, as there is a bar and pub directly next to the hostel. Blinds had been knocked down and stored in closet, so it was practically daylight level of light from streetlights. Great place to crash after partying all night in Temple Bar District.

The shared bathroom should held more tidy. the waste box should drained daily and the shower cabin cleaned also daily to avoid mold and athlete's foot to other visitors.

Fairly average as a hostel in general - pretty cheap and cheerful, but the location is so good that I would stay here again if I went back to Dublin. You get a free drink and free breakfast however I missed both of these so can't really comment. It was really cold in Dublin when I visited so was worried about the hostel being cold in the night but actually it was the opposite problem - the room was incredibly hot to the point where it was uncomfortable! Overall good value for money I thought.

Beds comfy, rooms warm, good breakfast and friendly and helpful staff. However pity about only having one key for an 10 bed dorm - we had to wake someone up at 2.30am to get in as the door was locked and the key wasn't at reception and the free drink was only of use if you checked in before 6pm.
