    Awesome and super friendly staff girl is working =) Overall is nice and comfortable, worthy to stay here although is a bit far from central but good to walk to central meanwhile it provide a chance to explore another view of Dublin, hostel located in a peace and quiet place but market is just opposite so very convenient. Breakfast is provided with variety choices, fully filled up our stomach.
