    The staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful, the bed was comfortable, the location was absolutely perfect - right in the middle of the action on Quay Street! But the rooms are a lovely haven when you need to get away. Breakfast had all the standards (toast, cereal, coffee, tea), plus fruit, and the WiFi was great. 10/10 will stay again! (I’m actually coming back next weekend!)

    Staff were really helpful. And they keep it super clean. Shower took a while to get warm and wasn't very hot but it was a nice place. Kitchen was well equipped.

    Great location and it has everything you need for an awesome time in Dublin. Only con would be that the hostel don't facilitate an atmosphere so as a solo traveller you've got to go out of your way but I did so honestly no complaints! Comfy beds and clean shower and kitchen. Perfect location to stumble home after a night out

    Snoozles Quay Street is such a great place to stay! It's located right downtown so you're close to everything! But the one down side to the location is that it's next to a few pubs so its noisy at night, but if you don't mind the noise this is a great place to stay. The room I stayed in had 3 bathrooms, and there was constantly water (from the showers) and hair on the floor which was pretty gross. The cleaning people would even come in and mop the floors and there would still be hair.

    Rather pricey, but one can't complain about the location or facilities. Really great staff who also set us up with a pretty well-priced day trip. Pretty decent social atmosphere.

    The location is AMAZING! Couldn't ask for a better spot. However, it is pretty noisy at night due to that location, but nothing I couldn't sleep over. The staff is wonderful & when someone in our room was being loud and rude, they had no problem moving us to a different room. The staff was helpful with things to do, and the breakfast was fine, nothing to write home about.

    There’s a lot I loved about Snoozles! Perfect location, good wifi, plugs beside every bed. Loved the hot en suite shower. However, the atmosphere was not what we expected. One of our roommates was an older man who made me and my friend feel super uncomfortable (he was always walking around in his underwear). There seemed to be a lot of older men there for a place that appeals mostly to a young crowd. We also had some issues communicating with the front desk about organizing pickup for a tour.

    While the location and room were up to expectations, we were disappointed to show up and learn that no bar crawl was taking place on the day of our arrival. The whole reason we booked with you was because the website mentioned bar crawls for guests. I even took the liberty of emailing someone directly about the day we'd be there and if we needed to book in advance and they said nothing about the tours not being set up yet. We only had one night in the city and were hoping for that experience
