Loved the private room. Very clean, great facilities and felt like a hotel. Hostel was quiet, clean, good wifi and decent breakfast. A bit far from the main attractions but still walkable and there's a bus stop right outside. Staff seemed friendly enough. Much nicer than some hostels I've stayed at and would definitely stay again!

We stayed in a double room with private bathroom (which wasn't cheap considering it's a hostel), and there wasn't hot water in the shower or in the tap. They said that was the only room available for us and refused to give us any compensation, even though they already knew about the hot water problems when we book the room and they didn't tell us.

Staff was late to open reception. There is also no late check in so if you are coming in late in the day don't risk it.

Overall, it was a pretty good hostel! Not a lot of community feel or hang out spots. It’s on the northern side so it takes about 15 min walk to get to all the central spots you probably are looking to see. But it’s awesome to be a part of the northern city- that’s where the real neighborhoods are! Had a great breakfast and the rooms were clean. Private bathroom woooohoooo!

Had a private ensuite double room and it was just like being in a travelodge. Fabtasyic value for money, just off o Connell street and about 20 min walk from temple bar. Will definitely stay again

There were no lockers in the room, barely any events planned or advertised, and the walk to town was too long. There was a bus stop directly outside of the hostel but it stopped running at about 11:30. You can find better hostels in Dublin.

The ensuite rooms have tiny bathroom you can barely stand to use toilet shower and sink. The entire room smelled like feces and there is absolutely no air circulation (not allowed to open windows or blinds. The complimentary breakfast is not FREE!!! There’s a tiny old coin-operated coffee machine and they call this free breakfast. The rooms and hallway stinks and are filthy. I would rather sleep on the streets of Dublin than to stay in this hostel. Common room? It’s about 15 sq. ft. space!!!

Everything was great! Only complaint is that I wish the free breakfast was an earlier time slot earlier.
