    The hostel was in an excellent location. Y the Liffey in central Dublin; clean. quiet. Friendly and helpful staff. My only suggestion for improvement is to put better signs inside the building for finding rooms and exiting the building.

    All good - the location is awesome, directly in the heart of Dublin. Atmosphere was ok, because of Covid the rooms are just half full what is on the other hand quite nice to sleep well. Staff is really nice 👌🏼

    Good hostel, confusing floor layout but, very clean and ample showers and bathrooms. Very close to the center and nightlife areas of Dublin. Staff was helpful and fairly friendly. One thing here though was that they charged €3-€6 per piece of luggage to store it, even when the rooms were not ready on time. I’ve never seen this before at any other hostel.

    It was my first time in a hostal and I am pleased to say it was a nice stay. The dormitory capacity was reduced due to Covid-19 which was comfortable. The had our own shower and toilet in-suite. It was a nice place, however, expensive for being a hostel.

    Staff was very friendly and helpful, answered all questions by email (thanks Carolina!). We had an ensuite room on a separate building, so we didn't get to experience the atmosphere/facilities from the main building, we used the hostel just as a place to sleep. The room was by the main road so we could hear all the noise from the outside (window was not well insulated at all). Bathroom was okay, though the sink was tiny. Conscious that this was a hostel not a 5* hotel (and Dublin is expensive).

    Fine hostel, the way a hostel should be. Not very good mattresses. They put tourists up in the same dorm rooms where they put people living in the hostel, which isn't very nice for the tourists.
