    This was our last night before going back to the states so we mostly used it for sleep. Although it seemed like a good party location there were many people getting lit. We had a bathroom in the room and this was nice.

    I have no complaints! The staff working check in was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. They called my taxi for me for my 4 am drive ti the airport, which saved me a load of stress, but they also were helpful to give food/drink recs and the hostel is close to the city center with many bars and clubs close by, as well as the national gallery and a beautiful park to walk through. Not right on temple bar but a close enough walk.

    Very secure and clean. Breakfast was great and the staff was friendly. It is close to great pubs but a little walk to Temple Bar area. It was expensive but seems to compare in price to the other Dublin hostels. I would stay there again!!

    I was only here for one night but really enjoyed my stay. A few things needed upgrading, like the temperature in the shower and maybe the mattresses but otherwise I had a pleasant stay. I did like the daily activities. Pancakes on Saturday was amazing, the breakfast itself was really good with fruit + muffins, but the no drinking tap water was something I wish they’d fix or have a filtered tap. Otherwise really good stay.

    All in all I was happy with the hostel, but a few things could be improved upon. I felt there wasn't enough space in the communal areas – it always felt overcrowded. The beds were incredibly short and I couldn't sit up in mine (on the bottom) without bumping my head. It was incredibly impractical that there wasn't a small spotlight per bed either – meant we needed to use our cellphone torch which disturbed neighbours.

    I think the creaky beds, dirty bathroom and loud music coming from the main area all night nade this an unenjoyable experience.
