The location is amazing, very very close to both temple bar, college street and o Connell street where most buses leave from. And only a half an hour walk to the Guinness storehouse. Really friendly and helpful staff and great atmosphere. But the room was absolutely freezing, it wasn't very clean and the bedding was quite thin. This wasn't the... More

Average hostel. They offer nice activities several times a week so that people can get to know each other. The bathrooms could have been cleaner but I would say that about most hostels. Wifi was free but sometimes didn't work. Word of caution: if you book the airport shuttle (you pay in advance for a shuttle that picks up people... More

So we booked this a while ago. Got to the hostel at 1pm and we couldn't check in until 2pm so we left our bags and went to have a wander. When we came back we had to pay the £210 for the 4 bed room. We were then charged 3% to use a visa to pay. Absolutely outrageous! Meaning... More

The room was big we had large windows with a street view.

Very convenient location, close to public transport, temple bar, and shopping area. Have a bar right next to it, so can be noisy at time. The kitchen and common area was nice and spacious. Very friendly staff and have daily event. Hostel has desktops, and internet browsing through these computers are charges with a cheap hourly fee. Free wifi otherwise.... More

I lost the key and I went to the reception to pay. When I arrived, the receptionist Camila told me that I had to pay 25 euros. When I asked about this price, she told me that I already knew about it, because "the receptionist who was there when I arrived at the hostel warned me about it". This is... More

It's in a great location. Lots of pubs, Temple College, public transport and shopping near by. The staff is very friendly. However it's dirty. I don't think the floors have been cleaned in the rooms, kitchen or gathering areas. If it wasn't for the friendly staff and the sheets being clean, we would have left.
