Clean, staff and very accommodating. It's easy to walk to downtown Dublin.

The staff was very nice and friendly. He gave us all the information we needed to make our 1 day trio complete. The beds were not good, they were very noisy and quite unconfortable. But the bathroom was very clean and the shower was great. We recommend this hostel to people who want to stay close to the bus station that takes to Dublin's airport. For people who want to go to the city center, you will have to be prepared to walk a little.

Kitchen didn't open when stated so we missed breakfast. Staff were helpful but not necessarily correct in the information they gave us. Quite noisy on the street side. Ok place to stay.

Nice hostel and nice staff. Double room was all that we needed for our city trip. Some troubles with the bathroom though.

a nice place to stay, friendly staff, breakfast could be better (in other hostels for instance in Cardiff we got fresh fruit and yoghurt)

Hi there, many thanks for your review. We offer a FREE breakfast so that is a hostel standard breakfast. I will see if we can improve it a bit. Best Regards, Ian

I found the choice of dorm a little ... different. I was put with long stay dorm mates who all knew each other and been there a while, in Europe or America and so on, you would get to meet people from all over and rarely want to leave leave without their company, bit of a "drunken Irishman stereotype" selection process I think which I felt unfair.. I didnt really want to back when I checked in and left the premises

Hi John, maybe you mixed up the hostels. We do not have long term guests as we do not accept them, for that reason. Our guests are tourists, but some of them stay for few nights to explore Dublin. Best Regards, Ian

Unfortunately the room we got was downstairs and felt kinda damp! The hostel overall was good and breakfast was fine!

Nice, clean and friendly place. Perfect for a restful night of sleep. Very friendly staff. Wifi works perfectly in rooms and common area. Only 10minutes' walk to the city center. Bus station right in front of the hostel. (46a to city center & UCD) Can definitely recommend it!

I stayed only one night but my room (8 bed only woman) was very big and confortable, with a clean bathroom inside. Wi-Fi works well in the bedroom. Breakfast is included although I miss it because I left earlier (it starts at 7.30). A 5 minutes walk to O' Connel St where all the buses to/from the airport depart. The only "bad" thing is that the bedroom was in a 3rd floor, no elevator (could be annoing if you have a big bag). I would definetly come back.

The hostel seems new and is very good to stay here for a trip at Dublin. Maybe 15-20 min to go to the city center but it was not a problem for us. The breakfast is good but please give free coffee. :)

Great accomodation, very nice staff, excellent location. But the horrible moisture smell in the bathroom (room 7) was a nuisance, not only there but also in the whole dormitory. That can't be healthy.

Hi Marianne, we will look into it. It is hard to have fresh air in a 8 bed room, if the guests not open the window. Best Regards, Ian

Hi Stacey, many thanks for your review. Best Regards, Ian

Not far from O'Connell street, but pretty far if you plan on walking to most of the tourist spots. TV signal in the common room goes out every time a bus drives by, which is every 2-3 minutes. Cash only payment was inconvenient.

Really need a shelf in the shower and the blinds were broken. But loved the room overall. Best hostel we stayed in during our Europe trip.
