Lovely place to stay - the room was spacious, the people at the reception desk were lovely! Clean, accommodating and just nice in general! We didn't have the breakfast but the times were good! Being able to leave our bags there the following day while we toured the city was a huge plus! Something that should be introduced in all... More

it is a nice and well organised hostel. the staff was beyond nice and did a lot to make our staying pleasant. the location couldn't be better - near the temple bar, and close to many of Dublin attractions. the room was small, but the shower great

We booked a 10 person mixed dorm; there were lockers under the beds (bunkbeds) and the room was clean and comfortable. We made some good friends; it was fairly easy to meet people since it was above a popular pub and was right next to the Temple Bar tourist drinking area. The staff at the hostel were really friendly and... More

Its position is the first reason to choose this hostel. The room was clean but you can hear some noise from the hallway, nothing terrible anyway. The staff is very accommodating and the facilities are really worthwhile.

The kitchen facilities at this hostel were awesome, staff were fantastic, great wifi access, AMAZING location by far the best spot in Dublin, not right in the hustle and bustle of the night life but literally like a 2 minute walk so u don't have to deal with the loud music when it comes time for some shut eye. Highly... More

I spent 5 nights with a friend there and it's still warm around my heart when I think about the place. The location was perfect, only a few minutes walk to Temple Bar and the supermarkets and Trinity College and pretty much everything. The staff were awesome, they were always hanging around with other people, very sweet and open. I... More

This was a great hostel! It was in a great location, easy to get to from the airport (just take the Air Link bus to the College stop), and easy to get to all other local attractions with walking (Trinity College, Dublin Castle, Jamison Distillery, Guinness Factory, St. Patrick's Cathedral, O'Connoll Street). Stayed in the 10 bed mixed dorm, there... More

Recently stayed here in a private room while visiting a concert in Dublin. No luxuries, but for the price I didn't expect any! Easy to find and a really good location for the centre of Dublin, and lots going on around it! Wifi signal not good. Would consider staying here again if in Dublin for a concert.
