    Probably my favorite hostel to stay in when in Dublin. Quiet, clean, the best showers in Ireland. Good lockers, comfy beds. It's a little off the beaten path both for cars and partiers, so getting a good night's sleep is easy. The common room is underused and a little small, so it's harder to meet the other guests and make new friends, but that's a small price to pay for the best showers in Ireland. Yes, I'm that serious about the showers. You have no idea.

    Great hostel with private bunks and comfy beds. Great view from the kitchen and a nice common area to meet people. A little away from the craziness in the main city but close enough to walk easily. Recommended!

    Small and convenient hostel with plenary of facilities and common spaces. There was no way to lock up my personal items within my dorm room, but the room itself locked so there could be slightly more security, although I felt comfortable since I got to know everyone staying in my room early on.

    Hotel is newly built. Bathroom was spotless. Staff very friendly and welcoming! Stayed in twin room.with lockers. The only downside is its a little out of the way from the centre of everything, 15 min walk. Bus stop 5 minutes walk away in a not so safe area at night, but plenty of taxis. I would definitely recommend this hostel.

    Huge shout out for being flexible when I had to adjust my booking due to COVID. The beds were comfortable and the atmosphere was international and social. There was no way to lock the roll out baskets under the beds with your own padlock or otherwise. It is set back from the main street which was great for reducing noise, but not so great for walking home alone as a woman. Otherwise, great location, close to the main attractions.

    I really loved my stay there. For me, the location was perfect. It was central, but not in the middle of the super crowded places. They have a lovely living room, clean and nice bathrooms and the rooms look good! Beds have a curtain, which is great. Staff is always helpful and friendly. The other guests have been also really great. I didn't like that the kitchen was often kind of messy, but that was more the fault of the other guests and not the hostels fault. I missed lockers.

    Good location and helpful staff. Quite basic with most things you need but nothing surprisingly good.
