    everything was as expected. This is definitely a massive hostel that caters to big groups (school tours, families) so probably not the best if you're solo and trying to meet people but has many amenities. Only issue is that the key cards to access the elevator and rooms never worked. Had to go to the desk pretty much every time we came back to the hostel.

    Very slick, modern hostel, hotel-like in most every respect. Hallway layout is confusing AF, but that's the only real problem. No community kitchen area, which doesn't matter for me, but some may find it inconvenient.

    Decent hostel. Lockers available and key card scanners required. Excellent location within walking distance of the most of the city center's main attractions. Good atmosphere, although it's much better if you're part of a group given the size of the common areas. Clean washrooms. The one gripe I have is that they don't have a lot of staff at the front so it took a while to check in (one person working the desk with at least 6 people lined up to check in).

    Very Good

    Staff was very accommodating when things were brought to their attention, that being said, I had a room with an en suite bathroom which I had to request toilet people for as we had run out, and later request the washroom to be cleaned / shower drain to be address as it was not draining well. I did notice a large difference in atmosphere /meeting fellow travels. I think this is in part so to know communal kitchen which is a common spot to meet. In all, good location, trendy facility!

    Very Good

    The place itself was very cool! It was clean and safe and the bathrooms were super great. The only thing was the people staying there who were extremely rude and who partied in their rooms until 4 o'clock in the morning. My sister and I did not get much sleep when we were there because people were running around in the hallways and yelling right outside our room. We tried wearing earplugs but it didn't do much. The place WAS awesome and we recommend it, just pray you have respectful neighbors.

    If there are groups of school and collage, they should definitely stay on the same floor with extra security and no alcohol rools. Showers need to be checked that they are not falling from the wall, floors of shower rooms need to be thoroughly cleened

    Booked a private room with television. The price was on par with what a hotel of room of similar size would cost in Dublin, except none of the usual amenities. The hostel also has a ridiculous policy on no food or drink allowed to be brought in. The shower didn't drain which I let reception know about, and was told housekeeping would look at - they never showed up and the shower continued to flood. One of the worse price for value trips I've ever had.

    The lobby tables were so dirty, the WiFi stops every 15 minutes and you have to sign in every time. One bartender was so drunk he was serving in used glasses. The lines for a coffee were so long and they were so slow but you are not allowed to buy a cup across the street and bring it in. I do not recommend this place.
