This was my first hostel experience in Europe. Staff were nice and helpful with questions. Overall things are pretty clean. My duvet had some stains when I was putting it in the cover they provide. You can only enter through a locked door that staff grants access into the building. I would stay there again.

I only stayed here for one night in a female only room but was super pleased with everything! Plenty of space and good ventilation in the room, all facilities were keep clean, and the shared kitchen / main area was well organised and had a really good atmosphere. Only downside was that there are no curtains on the beds but this wasn't an issue. Definitely recommend and would stay again!

I think we've got an unbeatable location in Temple Bar, overlooking the Liffey. This is a converted hotel, so families and older guests feel at home, too. Plus we've got a bright, open-plan communal area-great for socialising, web surfing, watching movies… For fun we have a free walking tour every morning and a pub crawl from the hostel every evening. We're quite close to Trinity College and Dublin Castle, but my favourite place to recommend is the Guinness Brewery.
