The great facilities made the place feel more like a hotel than a hostel, but it still has the fun vibe often missing in the former. Liked the sauna and the pool (closed at 10pm), where they didn't seem to mind poolside drinking. Made good use of the late happy hour starting at 11pm I think. The location is a bit far from most of the sights, but with the metro and train station right nearby it wasn't really an issue. It's right next to various nice clubs too and the East Side Gallery.

Great place and great people. I really enjoyed hanging out in the terrace, a nice place to hang out with a relaxed and friendly vibe, but also to party before going out. Good times!
Hosts were very kind and warm. Just a block away from the train station, which was extremely convenient for us travelling by train. Too bad we just had to miss the free breakfast , because it looked appetizing!
I've been more used to stayed at busy and noisy hostels, but a quiet and private place like this was exactly what we needed. Luca and Glenn were by far the most accommodating and helpful hosts I've ever met. My girlfriend really enjoyed the cappuccino with cocoa powder shaped in a flower that Glenn served us when showing how to use the coffee machine. They even left breakfast for us in our room for the next day since we were leaving early. Location was also perfect, 5 min walk to the Colosseum.
Nice hostel. Personal light and curtains on your bed were great. I'm glad we were able to do laundry, although it was a bit pricey. The location was fine with two underground stations close by, but the tube system wasn't as fast or reliable as I expected (on a Sunday it took us about an hour to go from Tower Hill St. to Finchlay Road St.). Also, I'm not sure if it was just bad timing, but reception seemed understaffed and it I had to wait quite a bit to ask for mundane things.
Great location! Having metro stations within two blocks was very useful.The place does actually have wifi, although not free. It costed €2 for 4 nights, so quite cheap. I disagree with the relatively low cleanliness rating. With daily room service, this place was certainly cleaner than most of the 90%-rated hostels on this website. I guess the cracked paint on walls gives this impression. One thing I didn't like was that toilet, sink, and shower were all kept separate, but it wasn't a big deal.
Never been at a hostel with a pillow fight!! So much fun, and great atmosphere overall, and those mini pizzas were great munchie food! The stairs did get annoying after a while, but I guess that's part of the experience :D
Amazing and very helpful staff! We arrived very early in the morning. It was too early to check-in, but they let us have breakfast, leave our bags with them and take a much-needed nap on their couches. The event they organized for the night was also plenty fun and well planned. I really liked the printed instructions on how to get back from the club by tram. Cheers!
The bar was pretty interesting, although it had a band playing which meant there was no space to hang out inside. I usually don't mind loud hostels, but you could feel the bass vibrations in our room. Thankfully they stopped before 11pm since we had to wake up early. Also, anyone coming in from the bar could've easily entered the hostel area. Facility-wise, the lockers were really nice, spacious and included chargers; however, the shower arrangement was annoying (other reviews explain it well).
Awesome place! The free face paint for Halloween was a nice touch too!
It's a hostel. It's a pub. It's Ireland! What more do you need to know?
I wish I could have spent more than 1 night here (and in Galway)! Staff were very welcoming and helpful to us.
Regardless of how great your facilities may be, having bed sheets that haven't been cleaned for many days and that are filled with hair is a dealbreaker for me. Unfortunately, that was the case for all 6 of us, so I doubt this was a mere mistake. We even pointed this out to the reception, who said they would fix this. When we came back in the night, we found out they had simply tucked in the bed sheets. As a result we chose to simply sleep on top of the eiderdown and dress up to stay warm.
Great location in the heart of the city, easy to meet new people and have fun. I wish the bathrooms had been cleaner though.
Great place to stay to meet new people and have fun. Great location as well.

Our apartment was great! Clean, furnished, and well kept. I don't think I would've survived without A/C. The manager and owner of the apartment were always nice and accommodating to us. Just make sure to thoroughly read the description and have a look at the map in the photos, and watch out for his email. I was in a bit of a hurry when booking and didn't do this, so it was a bit of a problem initially getting to our apartment (my fault).
Really beautiful and clean hostel, with a nice garden. The lady in charge of the hostel was really kind and helpful to us.
Nice spot, with very good location. Thanks to the staff for allowing an extra couple of us at the last minute, when all of Stuttgart hostels were filled up.
Great place, super friendly staff, and well kept facilities. Recommended!

This hostel is more like a chain of separate yet nearby apartment houses. Nice to have bed sheets and room cleaned everyday. Just be prepared for lots of steep stairs. It's Cinque Terre after all!
