    This is a great hostel! Although it looks like a labirynth to find your room it's awesome!!! Great facilities and staff is super helpful and friendly! I would have stay longer but unfortunately, they raise the prices dramatically for the weekend so I had to go to another city that I could afford.

    Very Good

    Ideal location for dublin, however the facilities weren’t exactly “homely”. There is essentially no lobby where you can hangout if your trying to kill time before checking in. Was a surprisingly almost 4 minute walk to get to my room which seems kind of strange (even though I’m used to walking all day). Overall the hostel felt safe and the free breakfast was a nice addition.

    Very Good

    Overall was a good option for what i needed (stayed outside 99% of the time, 4 hours of sleep in bad - stayed one night). Was pricey for what i got (everything is pricey in Ireland). It was like a maze getting to my room. My dorm smelled bad. People were nice and friendly. You have to pay to use the phone charge station? I asked them to hold my luggage before i got situated and they said i had to pay. location is absolute superb. Breakfast is a good plus, no croissants though.

    Location is perfect. It’s also very safe and secure. Just be aware there are large groups of teenagers which is an atmosphere killer. The schools were respectful but it’s tough to feel at home as an adult around big groups of kids cooking etc. As a result, staff are nice but can come across abrupt. The beds were the squeakiest and loudest I’ve come across, and the wifi has good patches but is mostly unreliable in the rooms. Most affordable in Dublin and it does the job, but just things to note!

    Pros: I did think the staff was quite friendly :) they offer a great breakfast. Not loud. Easy. Cons: It may just be a matter of personal preference but the facilities felt like a basement/cave and not very lively. I didn’t see an “outdoor terrace”. There’s very little natural light and the place was dirty. I didn’t feel sure my bed linens were even clean (the only hostel I’ve felt that way about). The floors/general use bathrooms etc all appeared dirty before and after cleaning/check in time.

    This is really a bare bones hostel. The facilities feel dark and damp. The rooms were hot and the bathroom in the room was never clean. I didn’t even finish my full stay. The security felt lacking especially in such a bustling part of town. It may be for others but it was not for me.
