Very good location, but no common room/area makes it hard for solo travellers.


It was fine, basic hostel. I felt safe, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. Great location, had everything I needed!

The price was way to high for what you get. The staff was pasive and the facilities are not good enough for that price. We know 3 different hostels in Dublin and this is the worse we have been in.


Stayed there three nights. There is no real common room to meet other travelers besides a couple seats in the stairwells. The room was fine, but the bathrooms were an issue. The toilet on my floor did not always flush immediately and the shower had very little pressure and the temperatures changed quickly. The location was great though. A quick walk to one of the main roads and about 10 minutes from a lot of tour areas.


Kind and thoughtfull staff


It was great! I would repeat for sure

- a lot of noise in the washbasin of our bedroom every time some one's having a shower or using the washbasing next door. - No relationship between the website and the actual bedroom we had - Toilets really very very cold,because with a window always opened - unhealthy shower - A room with TV for example, where people can meet each other is missing - Fortunately the staff is lovely !!!
