    This place was very nice, I liked my room, facilities were good. Everything appropriately clean. The area was nice and felt save, restaurants and supermarket directly nearby or easily accessible. I never used the bus to explore the city! Close to the centre, easy by Foot. (Except for attractions further outside you would need the bus). Free walking tour was really good. Also staff was really helpful.

    Everything was good - friendly staff, clean room, plenty of towels for my ensuite bathroom - no complaints. I didn't use any of the other facilities, so I don't have an opinion, but they looked good. The location is really central - the local neighbourhood looks a bit run down, but I didn't feel unsafe.

    They gave you your own key to get into the building and dorm room. They also had luggage storage which was nice. And free towel rentals. It seemed like they cleaned the room as well. No elevator so walked up quite a few stairs. My only complaints are the location and breakfast. The location is about a 20-25 minute walk to central Dublin. It is not in the best part of town. And the breakfast was extremely disappointing. Just some white bread, a toaster, cereal, and milk and jam.

    Very basic hostel, nothing fancy but clean and safe. Staff was very helpful! Breakfast included bread, jams, cereal, milk, juice as well as coffee and tea. Overall it was in a great location and provided somewhere to stay. The main common areas were very nice but the rooms were very basic with no decor. It was pretty much just a bed in a room for the private double room.

    Quiet hostel with nice location but our dorm looked like it wasn't cleaned in weeks and the bathroom wasn't clean either. The kitchen was really clean though.

    Came into Dublin for two nights this past weekend - new to staying in hostels, this one seemed fine. My 5 friends and I stayed in a mixed 8 bed dorm. The two other people were very sweet but there was a no show for both nights (which was annoying because we had another friend who wanted to stay with us but we were told it was booked solid). Bedsheets were a little stained and the blinds in the room were full of dust,bathroom was mediocre. Overall, would look elsewhere (downtown Dublin)

    The location was decent, near many bus stops to get us to various areas of town but that's where the positive notes about this hostel end. The hostel advertises laundry on the website, Google and their own website, yet they do not have laundry facilities. Noise carries very easily through the hostel, meaning at 1am when a group of drunk girls party in their room, you'll hear it. After 10pm theres no staff to enforce 'quiet hours' and no phone number other than 'emergencies only.'

    Just not a great hostel to be honest... for the price we paid it was kind of far from the centre, no vibe in the common areas, room and bed weren't great.
