Half block away from metro station, very handy with getting about town. Area fine. Free breakfast in near by cafe for one morning of your stay. Toilets are not the best, only 3 of the 11 floors have toilets/showers, some are unisex, most are men's, and a few ladies. So quite often a queue even to just use the toilet. Kitchenette had sink and microwave but no utensils etc.
Prices advertised on hostel world are members only so when we checked in it was a lot more to pay than we had expected. Public parking right next door at €20 a day flat rate and €10 a night.
Staff were great, breakfast was great, rooms were fine, toilet/showers good, no kitchen in main building never went to the other building with the kitchen 'close by'. Wifi was very slow and a bit rubbish. Super handy with train stations.

Room was fine, bathrooms ok - shower and toilet in same room so lots of queues! Breakfast was DIY waffles, cereals OJ, fine. Kitchen was cramped and no use for more than one or two folk cooking at same time. Staff helpful and friendly. Area ok, 5min from Powell Station, 40ish min walk to Piers, 30 min walk to AT
Had booked in the only available dorms but requested a double if possible which was available and allocated for us on arrival which was very much appreciated. Had to wait until bang on 15:30 to check in. Buildings were quirky and unique, comfortable rooms and clean facilities. Handy with walking trails.
Lovely area, 10min walk from beach and trails, was full of kids but we were there summer holidays, staff nice but some a bit rigid on rules, rooms were clean, we stayed in a separate cottage which was very homely and charismatic
Room was dated but cosy and comfortable, parking adequate, staff were friendly, coffee offered in the morning, room had coffee, fridge, tv, very good shower, area was central but quiet, lovely diner Franks Famous Hot Dogs down the street for a cheap breakfast.
