    The Hostel was pretty close to Dublin City Centre. Upon arrival we got a lot of nice tips and ideas about what to do during our stay in Dublin. The room was pretty large and the bathroom was en suite. The shower was very small though. Also, the walls of the bathroom were really thin, one could basically hear everything through them. The free breakfast was enough to start the day with. All in all we had a good stay and enjoyed the hostel and its staff a lot!

    Having never stayed in a hostel before, we were unsure what to expect. The staff were amazing. We were unaware at initial booking that the reception desk closes at 11:30 so when we notified them of our late arrival, they were kind enough to stay late to allow us to check in. We were disappointed in the breakfast food available but again, we've never stayed in a hostel so... It was exceptionally clean and that was nice. The staff allowed us to take over the TV room to watch our own movie.

    My friend and I are backpacking Europe for the first time and this was our first stop. Lauren was absolutely AMAZING. She went out of her way to hand write directions to multiple places and was so accommodating. Hostel was also very accommodating when we had to pushback our stay due to a missed flight connection. Only real complaint was that the beds were very loud and squeaky at the slightest movement. Overall I would definitely recommend this hostel!!
