    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.

    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.

    My sister and I stayed here while exploring Dublin for the first time. We had a great experience and enjoyed the quietness and privacy in our room. We chose the all female room and everyone was respectful. Storage bins provided and a privacy curtain, as well as thoughtful social distancing in not filling the room. The facility itself was a bit difficult and confusing to navigate initially in trying to find common spaces and the kitchen. The staff was helpful and security was top notch.

    Nice hostel and well located, but it unfortunately didn't have much of a hostel atmosphere - there were a lot of big groups (families or school groups maybe) staying which made it harder to meet people. The rooms also had really bright 'emergency exit' signs meaning the dorm couldn't get fully dark. The location is amazing though, and overall it was good value for money.

    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.

    The location is perfect, the only best part. There’s no lift, unfriendly for people with heavy suitcases. We arrived earlier before check-in time, one of the staff was impatient. I’ve tried many hostels in different countries and this is the first time the hostel who charges their guests for leaving luggages in the counter for couple of hours before we can check-in?!?!?!

    Over-priced and not very nice hostel. Bathroom was tiny. Communal areas were mostly empty on a Friday night. On top of the expensive fees for staying, I was charged an additional £10 for late checkout, which I wasn't informed about upon arrival, and the lady at reception was not very friendly about it. The next hostel I went to was much nicer and even gave me a free towel to use when I only had card payment for it (they only took cash).
