    The amenities were numerous: laundry, pay lockers in the common area and free lockers under the beds, bar, kitchen, cafe etc. the atmosphere was very lively even into the wee morning hours. If you’re looking for a place that has lots of spirit and energy this is a good place for you.

    The room was excellent as it was tidy, spacious and a modern feel to it. The most thing I missed in the hostel was a kitchen because I couldn't bring in my own food or make breakfast in the morning and because of this my stay was more costly as I was eating out most days. The security guards were a little rude when I brought in something to eat after a long day traveling. The atmosphere in the bar area was definitely worth the stay although the hallways were a little and felt like a night club.

    The atmosphere In this place was super weird and not very social. The staff was a a bit rude, and I really was not a fan of the bathrooms being on a different floor than your room. Overall an okay stay but would not go again.

    Generator was under construction when we went which we were not warned about and their price didn’t reflect this. The workers wouldn’t move out of our way for us to get to our room, we got to our room and it smelt like paint so strong we couldn’t ignore it. We attempted to move rooms but they didn’t have anything available so it was basically that’s it stay or leave. Then the lights weren’t working on our beds so I mentioned something again and still was overlooked. I won’t go back.

    Worst hostel in all of Dublin! Do not stay here! First of all this hostel is on the outskirts of town, about a 20 minute walk from where you want to be. There is no kitchen, no ladies bathroom or shower on the level we slept on, and nothing to do in this part of town besides the Jameson distillery. The staff is rude. This is hipster paradise if you have daddy’s credit card, but if you’re a traveler it offers no amenities of a normal hostel. Also the atmosphere is wack and no outside food allowed
