Staff very nice and helpful! The kitchen and common room are cool cozy places to hang out. The large dorm rooms however are very poorly ventilated. If someone decides to close the one window in the room (because of noise outside), it gets very very hot.

The atmosphere provided by the workers is great. They are a very friendly bunch and had a great time hanging out with them. Not the cleanest facilities; rooms can feel cramped and doors can be difficult to open at times. But again, well worth the money. Free HOT breakfast made by the staff! Again, despite the cons, the friendliness of the staff made the stay worthwhile! Recommended for solo backpackers

Solo backpacker. If you re into hiking, biking, outdoors experience, this is the place to be. Biked the Gap of Dunloe and couldnt imagine a better place to start. The hostel is like a mansion with many rooms, but cozy common space. The workers are very friendly and helpful. Yes, it's far from the city center and only 3 public buses per day, 1hr walk if you miss it. Still, worth it!

What made this hostel fun was the diverse people I met and interacted with at night! We would all just hang out at the center of the hostel where all the chairs and tables are, eat and drink together. Great atmosphere. Even the receptionists would hang out with us when off duty (unofficial pub crawl!). Shout out to all of them especially George. Wished there was wifi in the rooms though.

Not really a youth hostel especially if you are in your 20s. Huge age range from middle school to people in their 30s (very shady and disrespectful). Meeting new friends is a problem esp as a solo traveller. No wifi in rooms. Breakfast is ok. Cheapest laundry services ive seen though! Close to the main train station. Would not go again.

I had a great time. Have organized events for daytime and nighttime. Met lots of new people. Very friendly atmosphere. Did their tapas experience on thursday nights. Unlimited food and sangria for 7.50 euros. Highly recommend. Wish location was closer to the center though.

One sentence really sums it up: Do not go to this hostel! While at the lounge, I heard two women complain to the staff about someone breaking into their room and go through their stuff. Coincidentally, when I went up (just after 2 hrs of checking in), part of my zipper that I locked w/ a padlock was burned off. Fortunately, nothing was taken. Also couldn't go to sleep that well because of bugs. Got lots of bug bites next day. Also, staff barely knows any english. Far away from city center.

Got a cabin with its own bathroom. Fairly small for three people but relatively comfortable. Receptionists were helpful. Far from venice. Not recommended for solo travellers looking to make new friends

Porbably worst of the wombats in terms of location. However, the rooms were very nice witha private bathroom in each 4person room. Complimentary drink was nice too. Also, take advantage that there's other wombat hostels around. Make them your rest stops ;)

Great hostel if you dont plan to go out at night since all the good clubs are in the east side of town (30 minaway). Not a youth hostel and seems hard to make friends especially when travelling alone. Mix of travelling ages. Very clean though and i really like the rooms. Spacious. Good supermarket near bu. Easy access to train to get to city center.

Right next to the red light district. Disappointed that they dont provide seconds for hot breakfast (decent). Not the place to be if you want to meet new ppl to go out. Nevertheless, i personally made a good friend. Mixed bag in terms of age. Very strict in terms of security.

Sorry you missed the free extra breakfast. It's always possible to get more bread, jam and juice for free.

Besides having to walk to the metro and being 49min away from the center, hostel was amazing. Really clean. Korean dinner different every night and was amazingly good. Small community very frendly. Loved it. Would recommend it.

Breakfast was cereal and toast. Bar was fun. Get to meet locals. Black receptionist (hope you read this) is not friendly at all and should lighten up. The rest of the staff also is nowhere to be seen since their office is in a basemt. Wouldnt want to go there again. Bathroom could be crowded especially in the morning

Staff sucks. Dont really see them since they re in a basement but when you do they are not helpful and very rude. Looking at you, black dude receptionist. Breakfast is alright and the bar at night can be filled with locals, which is cool.

Apple the person in charge was great. Dirty and unclean. They clean your sheets everyday though. Lockers are small and dirty. Wont fit a laptop. Atmosphere not very friendly. Age range varies a lot. Security is adequate due to having a passcode to get in.
