Not really worth the money. Bunks are sturdy and the location is great, but the mattresses are really hard foam, spent two days by pain on my back and had trouble sleeping. The "ensuite" has a shared bathroom instead of a private one (they say "private" but it's shared by 3 rooms). Breakfast isn't great, but isn't bad either, doesn't justify the value. Temple Bar is also noisy as can be expected, but that's not the hostel's fault so be aware if you stay in this area.

The good: the people that works rhere its incredibly nice, free complete breakfast and soup, salad and tea/coffee all day. Can’t be better located, next to all cool bars. The bad: smelly rooms, poor ventilation and the bathroom could be cleaner, there is mold and mustiness on the shower tiles and the back of the WC.

The room was filthy with stains on walls and dirt on the skirting board. The bed was hard and the mattress was stained. The shower and toilet area had mould. YOU COULD NOT SEE OUT OF THE WINDOW for dirt and grime. The wardrobe had stains in the shelf. Thought I paid for an apartment not a hostel room. And the receptionist (manager) Was very unhelpful. Even though he offered to move us to another room , there was no point for one more night. WOULD NOT STAY HERE AGAIN. Best thing the pub

The hostel is in a great location but its really old building. The worst part is that you can not find any plugs around your bed so it is quite difficult to charge your phone with just 2 plugs for 10 people. Apart of that, they don't have a proper bathrooms so you will have again one bathroom for 10 people. You will suffer a long queue to take a shower and once you can take it you will find the bathroom completely dirty. The breakfast was ok,some milk, coffee, toast, cheese and cereals.

I only stayed one night, and came in late and left early...so I can't say that my review would matter much! Some of the security cages (to lock your stuff up) needed some wd40 as they were LOUD, but the bathroom was spacious and clean. The mattress I slept on was also VERY lumpy and stiff...a couple times I thought I was laying on something of my own but it was just the springs from the mattress.
