    One of the cleanest hostels I've ever been in! Nice bunks with comfortable mattresses and privacy curtains. Great location to stay if you're going to a show at Vicar St or would like a quieter place to stay an easy walk from Temple bar. Would stay again.👍

    This place is my second home now. I came here scared and intimidated, and the culture in this hostel is to adopt the new person into the group as if they’re family. There are more long term guests than travellers coming though, but everyone is treated the same and becomes the best friends. The amount of times that staff clean the bathrooms/ rooms per day is immaculate. The common rooms are great (in a penthouse overlooking the city). It’s the perfect distance from the city centre. Will be back!!

    A really nice place, comfortable and clean. The location is hidden in the streets some minutes walking from downtown; use Google map... Staff is nice but there is none of them between 8pm and noon (they have a procedure for late check-in). Each dorms get his own Wifi connection. In my dorm it wasn't working and I had to ask to someone from the staff (juste before 8pm) to give me a new password to use an other connection.

    Very good staff, bed nicely made (with all bed-linens), brilliant location. Bathroom shover not too clean in the evening time; some toilet paper and plastic shampoo bottle cap floating in it. Lacking any towel hangers in the bathroom. It would be good to have some tiny little shelf beside the head to place a phone...

    It's a pretty decent spot. A few blocks away from party areas, temple bar, et cetera. Easy to get to what you need or desire. Staff were very friendly and helpful! My only gripe is that there are no showers or bathrooms in the dorms, but that's stated in the description, so I can't really complain. :D I would choose a place like this over a big generator hostel any day of the week.

    Everything was good. However, I didn’t think the atmosphere was like other hostels I have stayed at. They have people that actually leave there, etc. Mostly not backpackers. Facilities were nice and staff friendly.
