Great location - less than a 5 minute walk from Busáras (the main bus station in Dublin). Our third floor room got very hot, but it was unusually sunny. It was really noisy (weekend), but not nearly as bad as the hostels closer to Temple Bar. Towels were 2 euro each (plus 5 deposit) which was expensive for me, but if you are backpacking and didn't bring a towel you're doing it wrong anyway. Quiet (also very hot) basement, decent kitchen and multiple common rooms. Overall very happy with my stay.
Great staff who waited for us, greeted us by name, and told us about the city. Location is very close (two blocks) to one of the two round towers in Ireland you can actually climb, and a short distance from Black Abbey.

Stayed 2 nights, one in a 5-bed dorm and the other in a brand new "apartment" (Twin Bed Private Ensuite). The dorm was basic, comparable to other hostels but clean with a very shared bathroom right outside. The private apartment was impressive. The apartment was separate with a locked main door opening into a kitchen/dining room, then 2 locked 2-bed private rooms. The shared bathroom was clean but we ran out of hot water. Had trouble with the main lock but staff responded fast and fixed it.
