    The location was perfect, the room itself was comfortable and clean there was a weird smell in the room, I do think it was from drains. So maybe run showers or taps to flush the drains out before guests arrive 🤔 Got a welcome drink at bar on arrival but had to ask for it! Had the breakfast sandwich next morning which was tasty. Overall we would definitely recommend and use ourselves again.

    Clean lovely hostel, does the job. The pods are great however you need to get new pillows the existing ones are flat as anything! The area is incredibly convenient as it’s close to the main attractions and bus station. Would definitely use again if visiting Dublin.

    Nice organisation for the room with individual pods. Big and clean bathroom. The bar is nice. No kitchen, which is too bad. Security is good with a code on almost every door and your individual locker.

    16 Oct 2021
    Stayed here for 2 days. I was excited to be in the city center so close to everything but that was about the only thing that ended up being good about this place. We were also each given only one towel for our room and those towels are small There was a mixup the first night we were supposed to be there and we ended up having to stay somewhere else. Even though it was my mistake, I would’ve appreciated a partial refund since we couldn’t stay there at all bc of it.
