It's a great location, but it's really loud in the alley and it's hot so you need to leave the windows open making it quite hard to sleep. The staff were excellent. There were some bizarre cleanliness issues like a large wet patch on a mattress when we arrived though. You can walk everywhere from this centrally located hostel.

The bedroom was extremely hot and stuffy, but this seems to be the case with many hostels in Ireland and the UK. The staff were very helpful. The location was good for Dublin sightseeing, and the facilities were good.

We absolutely loved our stay and even extended for another night. The hostel is in close proximity to the excitement of the Temple bar but also in a good place to get a good nights sleep. The hostel is easy to get to via transport and the staff were super helpful. The ensuite bathroom was amazing. You didn't even need to wear flip flops in the shower, so a double win. I also loved he vibes from the wine and cheese and free dinner nights. Really supports a community feel. Double thumbs up!

Staff is friendly. Kitchen is one of the best I've seen in a hostel, with lots of counter space

It's kind of out of the way its right off O Connell st but its tucked away down a alley so you may have some trouble finding it. Its right across from Arlington Bar and near to Starbucks Bachelors walk. The room was clean and the common areas were clean. The staff was extremly helpful and friendly. Best of all was Arlington Bar and grill the music talent there was amazing (I went on a Fri night). Temple bar area is right across the bridge, if you dont fancy Irish food there is a hard rock cafe

If you're looking for a hostel right in the heart of the activity of Dublin for a good price but still relatively clean than this is a good spot. I felt the only thing that upset me was the 30-second walk in the ally from the main road to the hostel. Some interesting people gravitated there at time that I am sure weren't staying at the hostel. Also, the ally smelt like people have been relieving themselves there often! The rooms/bathrooms are clean enough, just don't expect anything amazing.

Really well located but away from the noise of the more touristy areas. Generally clean but the shower area never got properly cleaned and I notified staff that the shower was not draining properly but it hadn't been fixed by the next morning. Under the beds was also not well cleaned, which is noticeable when everyone is storing luggage under them. Otherwise a very nice hostel, but I would only stay there again if the cleanliness improved.

Would definitely recommend this hostel to travelers. It is well run, with clean rooms and excellent opportunities to meet with other travelers thanks to the numerous events that are hosted in the welcoming common room. The staff are friendly, engaging and very helpful. An absolute pleasure to deal with, Paul the manager and Lucy are absolute gems! Thanks for a memorable stay in Dublin. :)

Great staff, very helpful, genuine, always made time to have a conversation. Excellent location, everything within walking distance. Nice kitchen. In terms of atmosphere I guess they could have organised a flyer or something with games/activities. It was a bit hard to meet people in the hostel. But overall good value. Paul, Domenico and Lucy were lovely.

stayed here for three days & a pleasant stay! love the interior design & the background music! I just had a brief look of the introduction of this hostel and booked it. Cos I trusted the rating on this platform though I had a little worry. after arrival, I like this hostel so much. The price did not include breakfast but you can pay for 3 euro.It is economical. stroll along the river side to other side and just 1 min you can turn to O'connel street, city centre.

It was a nice place, with an amazing location. The only negative thing I could think to say is that it seemed just slightly unorganized. Other than that, the staff was great, the rooms were clean, the meeting area was pretty nice and it included breakfast in the morning. Overall i had a nice stay and may very well choose this hostel again if i return to Dublin.

All the rooms facing the Litton Lane which means facing the bar. Free music from the bar (actually the music is good) if you keep the window open at midnight. The room was clean and the room was spacious. Location closes to many restaurants, shops and post office. About 5-10 minutes' walk to airport bus stops.

The hostel was great, all of the staff members we interacted with were helpful and knowledgeable. Location was perfect, right across the river from Temple Bar. Bathroom in the dorm room could've been a tad cleaner, but was by no means disgusting. Only suggestion would be to provide lockers in the rooms if possible, but otherwise no major hangups. The hostel itself was a neat building, and the kitchen was well equipped. Thanks for a great start to our trip!
