Easy to find. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. They have some sort of gathering type every night which was super cool and allowed you to meet others. Kitchen was nice with three fridges and dishwashers. Breakfast not worth the money. Washer and Dryer which was great. Not all the rooms are the same.. Like some had nightstands and/or hooks to hang things or cubbies in the bathroom and some did not. Also, no individual lockers for smaller, important items. But overall, great experience


Very expensive for a 10 beds room, additionally the breakfast was not included

Only hostel (of 4) that I've stayed at in Dublin that was fun. They do cool events during the week and the staff are great.


Staff were so friendly n kind..


Sehr gut ausgestattete Zimmer und modernes Bad. Alles sehr sauber! Lage war ok, circa 10 Minuten zu Fuß ins Zentrum. Leider war die Atmosphäre nicht so schön wie erwartet. Die Common Area war nicht besonders einladend und relativ klein. Es gab auch keine besonderen Angebote vom Hostel an dem Wochenende, an dem wir dort waren (z.B. Pub Crawl). Alles in allem aber ein gutes Preis-Leistungs-Verhältnis!


The rooms and bathrooms weren't that clean but the staff was extremely friendly and accommodating and the location was perfect. Great for solo backpackers, just wish the rooms and bathrooms were more clean.


This hostel was in a perfect location. I quick walk to most sights and an ideal location for going to the pubs. The staff was friendly and we stayed in a four bed dorm which was clean and comfortable. Would stay here again!!

The daily events that the hostel organised in the evenings brought people together. I enjoyed those a lot. The location right next door to two big nightclubs is definately an important feature. When I'll come back to Dublin I'll definately stay at this hostel again. Thanks!


The staff is the best! So friendly and helpful They have fun events everyday So Close to Diceys and some other hot spots Nice bathrooms The beds come with USB charging stations so you can charge phones, iPads and computers The kitchen is the nicest I've seen


Great hostel, welcoming, would stay again, thanks

this was my first time staying at a hostel so the experience was a very very new one. I will say, that for the money, this was perfect for what I could afford and the "shared experience" that a hostel provided. The linens were clean, the kitchen areas were clean and well stocked. I chose this hostel for its location. Far enough from town center to be away from the busy busy activities but close enough to walk. The staff was fun and very helpful - I will definitely stay here again.


The hostel is pretty good, it has a kitchen, free food, great people with plans every day and night. Bathroom was quite smelly but still ok.


Bathroom was really smelly. Couldn't adjust to it. PowerPoints next to the beds which was great. Staff were friendly.


The location is good, 10 min walk to temple bar. The surraunding area is nice (Shop, Bar, Markets...) . The breakfast is normal but is good for 3euro. The place is clean. During the time I stayed the Internet do not work couple of times. They can put bigger bins in the toilets. A good place to saty.


Noise from nightclubs until 4am, breakfast extra charge. Not good good place to stay, if you have to work next day. Only would suit , if you are going out.


Great staff, very helpful, great location.
