Find myself comparing all other hostels to this one. Superb staff, super comfortable interior, pub nights with the whole hostel, and incredibly easy to meet other travelers. Plenty of bathrooms on main floor to shower in as well. You Da Best.

Overall we had a nice stay. However, the light in the bathroom was burnt out and the shower door wouldn't close. I thought the bathrooms could've been better cleaned.

The first night, there was a loud group of people partying right outside our room until 5am. Next morning, they offered me earplugs when I requested to switch rooms and said the manager wasn't there and he usually moves the party away from our door. There are deskers 24/7, why didn't they move the party?? I didn't pay to have a hostel host parties, I paid for a good nights sleep, which I didn't get. Bathrooms were grungy, one light in the shower didn't work so 1 shower for our 14 person room.

This is one of the good ones. It's everything you imagine a hostel to be. Social/friendly staff, great lounge, great location, clean rooms, great for meeting people, breakfast and wifi are solid, beds are clean, parking if you've rented a car as well, ambiance is just the right mix of funky and modern. Can't recommend this place enough, wish there were more places like it in the world. The one thing that could use an update are the luggage storage bins under the beds, some are hard to get to.

Good hostel. Keep an eye on general housekeeping duties example make sure all toilets have toilet roll and light beside bed bulb fused.

It was a very nice and friendly place. The staff were all very warm and welcoming and were very accommodating with our bags at the end of the trip. The whole place is very comfortable and pretty clean, and there were a lot of spaces in the hostel to hang out and chill. They also had guitars in a room which was a great surprise. I really loved staying there and would definitely stay there again!

Exceptionally great hostel :) Lovely, charming, with a lot of personality. Loved the dining area and the breakfast selection, one of the best I've ever had (jams, peanut butter, chocolate spread...) The hostel is centrally located, within walking distance from the bus station (Europa Bus Centre at Glengall Street). Super friendly staff. I forgot my power plug adapter and was able to borrow one at the reception. The only suggestion I'd have would be electricity sockets for each of the beds.
