    A really clean hostel ideally located for a great price. The room, kitchen and TV room were comfortable and pleasant, the tv room had a really good range of DVDs. The staff were really friendly and helpful, always had the best recommendations for food and drink. Towels were able to rent for only 1 Euro. Would recommend to friends or anyone looking to stay in Dublin. :)

    I’ve stayed in 6 hostels in Dublin and this is one of the best that I’ve stayed in. It’s very clean and rooms are spacious. The only downside is it’s a little bit of a walk to city center, maybe 10-15 min, but that’s not bad at all. It’s also one of the cheaper options in the city. The staff were very nice. Lockers are available in the room. Traveling alone as a female I felt very safe here.

    The loc. was a far from the Templeton bar area. Being a single woman, I opted out from going to the bars too late so I wouldn't have to walk back alone. I was also very disappointed that my reservation was cancelled prior to me showing up, since it fell on a day when all the city was fully booked. Mentioning this at the time of booking would help, since I was unable to access my emails while away. The hostel itself was nice and I loved the kitchen and eating area. The staff was friendly too.

    15 to 20 minute walk to anything. Solo female traveler didnt feel safe walking back to hostel at night. Mixed rooms should be more balanced. Only female with 5 males.

    I have to say that I know staying in a Hostel means sharing a room with multiple people, but the room I stayed in stunk. No problems as far as safety or anything like that, but the SMELL was terrible. I was surrounded by the stench. Below and next to me smelled even worse & to make matters just a bit worse, the wifi stopped working for the last three days I was there. I left a day early due to the horrible smell, lack of showers, no wifi, I slept in the airport the night before my flight.

    Not a terrible experience, but I was glad I was only staying one night. The WiFi was unusable, so slow I couldn’t even load a picture. Did a speed test at 3.5 mb per sec. half of the toilets were out of order, the chairs and beds were pretty uncomfortable. Staff was very friendly and the location was decent, but was definitely lacking on a lot of fronts.
