    Very modern, clean hostel with plenty of amenities and easy access. I'd recommend Generator but it feels more like a hotel than a hostel, so don't expect a ton of local culture. Spend your night on the town and come back for a clean place to sleep!

    Rooms are nice and there is good community in the dorms. 15-20 min walk to trinity college. Activities are available every night and lots of food near by. Down side: Laundry and breakfast are expensive for what you get, no comunal fridge. Overall enjoyed my stay, would book again.

    Beds were a bit uncomfortable, very springy, but clean. Shower was ok, would have liked if there was a bath mat. The room itself was good, clean and with enough space for our bags. We ordered a taxi at reception for the next morning to get us to the airport for our flight, when we got there is the morning we were told after 10 minutes of waiting that the staff had forgotten to order the cab for us, so make sure you watch them order it for you, the cab took an extra 40 minutes to arrive...

    Honestly it wasn't terrible, but none of the common areas are quiet, always bar type music playing morning to night. Wasn't my vibe, but if you're looking for a young, party hostel, cool. It's near the Jameson factory, but apart from that it's a bit of a walk from the other touristy things and restaurants I wanted to check out. The bed was comfy and clean and the rooms with an ensuite and 6 beds are nice and private. I wasn't a fan of the 8-person mixed dorm with no ensuite.

    The hostel itself was pretty clean and had decent sized rooms. The staff were genuinely the most unfriendly staff I’ve ever encountered in hospitality. Seriously so unprofessional, so unhelpful and borderline rude! There was a school excursion on while we were there - absolute nightmare having teenagers slamming doors from early hours!!
