    I booked a private room after a long trip in rural Ireland. I was very tired and the hostel was ideally situated near the bus station. Everything was very comfortable, quiet and worked properly. I enjoyed what I saw of the live music, and the bar seemed quite fun - though didn't affect my sleep at all.

    By far the best hostel I have stayed in. Two weeks at bru bars and even though I found a great apartment I’m a little sad to say it is my last night here. THE STAFF AND THE REGULAR AT THE BAR ARE THE BEST PEOPLE THAT YOU WILL MEET. Non the less I will be coming here to drink. Different live band every night. Monday sing a song get a free pint. Very clean hostel. Beds are comfortable. Just that I’m really tall 6ft4in so top bunk is not as great as the bottom. Location is perfect. THE BEST!!!

    I absolutely adored this hostel. It was simple, but good. The location was great and the bar was fun. What really made my stay was the staff. They are some of the most amazing and helpful people I've ever had the privilege of meeting.

    My stay in the Bru hostel was brief but good. I stayed on a Saturday night. The room and bathroom were very clean and tidy. The room was small but comfortable and lovely and warm. It was very close to town so perfect for a night out. Thank you.

    Very Good

    This hostel is about 10 minutes from the city centre. It was a bit strange having to walk through the bar in the evening to get to the actual hostel as that’s the only way to get in. The rooms were very narrow and crammed, but if you only plan on being in the room to sleep then it is perfectly fine.

    Some of the lockers would not lock in room. Toilet did not always flush which caused embarrassment. Staff were friendly and made checking in etc easy. Good location near centre of town.

    staff nice and professional. Bed hyper uncomfortable, pillows razor thin. noisy from every side, back road, corridors, kitchen. price way too high...for a three bed an average of 90euro/night! Hostel at this prices should be much better, remind me of the '90.

    It was okay, nothing out of the ordinary. There were lots of notices all over the place stating things that were prohibited and I suppose they've had rude guests in the past making them feel they had to put up such notices but it didn't make one feel welcome.

    The bar and the atmosphere is nice I loved the live music shows. But the beds, rooms, and bathrooms need some improvement. Not particularly clean or new. No curtains on beds or locks in the room only 1 hook in the bathroom and nowhere to put your toiletries. Otherwise ok.

    Location is great if you’re looking for a party and have low expectations, privates are located on same floor as the kitchen/tv room which is very noisey until 3 am. Rooms had a nice slope In the floor and staircases where a bit dodgy. Some staff are very unpleasant as well. Don’t book if you need a place to rest.
