    Really liked how there were smaller mixed dorm rooms available. We stayed in a 4-person room with it's own bathroom, and it was probably the nicest hostel environment I've ever been in. A room was much more manageable with 4 people than with 16 people in some other hostels! The rooms, beds, and bathrooms were really clean. The breakfast was decent, with a fair number of options. Location was great, walkable to city center. Bit loud at night, but that's Dublin for you!

    Overall it was a pleasant stay. Breakfast consisted of muffins, fruit, cereal. There were multiple altercations between guests and employees at the reception desk, not sure what they were all about, but it felt kind of confrontational and aggressive. Not a big deal, but it's the only time I've ever experienced such a thing at a hostel. You have keys for your rooms so my stuff always felt safe. I'd stay again.

    I stayed in a 4 bedroom dorm and it was fantastic! The staff was very kind and welcoming. The entire hostel was very clean. The bathroom in our room was cleaned daily. There was hot water! It was a great experience. I would definitely stay there again next time I’m in Dublin!

    Pretty neat and cosy hotel, close enough to the attractions (but tbh all of Dublin is walkable). Friendly staff Great breakfast, clean kitchen and bathrooms. Rooms (8 bed) v. cramped (expected) but also very noisy - heavy door, creaky metal under-bed holds, mattresses and bed frames. Good size cage lockers (fit hold luggage depth). Slightly uncomfy mattress, no reading light but two personal plug sockets per bed! Would stay again, but bring ear plugs (and eye mask) FOR SURE.

    The hostel was good. the people that stayed where great and made wonderful travaling companies, and conversations. Tudor and the other staff are helpful in answering questions and giving advice to make the stay in Dublin that much better. Overall a good hostel only needs a oven to make it that much better. And I did not enjoy the music constantly playing in the background.

    Location was walking distance to attractions within the city. Visitors seemed to be on the older side, making a stop-over in Dublin or on brief business. Staff were super knowledgeable for things to see, do and eat in the city. Showers were freezing cold on the first night... but was nice and warm on the second night, so maybe someone just used up all the hot water? Events to mingle happened every night and free breakfast was nice to prep for the day. Overall, meets needs, but nothing fancy.

    Good for a hostel, could do with bigger bin facilities for a group, a bathroom table to keep clothes while changing and poss. towels. Breakfast was a plus but rather communal for hygiene.
