The apartment was central to activity, was extremely good value for money and I would certainly go there again.

I would stay in the penthouse apartments again, but the line at 2:30-3:30 for check in was HUGE. Staff was great but waiting for all of the hostel guests to check in was dreadful.

Amazing location! Great view from the balcony. Clean beds, hot shower. The other bedroom smelled a bit stuffy though. The kitchen could have been a bit more orderly. There were bits and pieces missing from the dish washer - it worked though, so it was great. We only had breakfast in the apartment and went out to eat other meals, so it wasn't really a problem. Anyway, I would love stay here again next time I visit Dublin.


Can't really fault the apartment. It really suited our needs & was spacious. If I was to make any negative comment it would be the fact that the interior doors are a bit grim , they are painted black but badly scraped & flaking.

We didn't have a coffee-machine in the apartment, and the coffee in the hostel wasn' t too good... The aparment was big enough for 7 people but there was only one bathroom all of us could use, because, the second one was inside one bedroom. The extra bed e¡in the living room wasn't the comfortable we expect for the price the charge us (we have to pay as the person was in another room, just the same than the rest of us) Staff in the reception were nice, but not in the dining room

wonderful stay in 2 of the penthouse apartments-only negative was the female receptions attitude when we checked in-I wasn't made aware in any of my emails/phone calls that photographic ID was required at check-in but receptionist had no empathy for this.Everything else(and all other staff) was fabulous-views,facilities,location etc
