This place was the most filthy, disgusting hole i have ever set foot in. I walked into a room that had not been cleaned in months. Toilet didn't flush properly, shower looked like a dog had malted in it, room door didn't lock, room covered in hair, bed spread filthy, dead insects on windowsill and splashed liquid all over side...

The only positive thing about booking this hostel was its location. The beds were uncomfortable and dirty, I don't even wanna start talking about the bathroom Situation. Super dirty and it was flooded when people in the rooms above us took a shower. Furthermore it was moldy and just gross. Don't go here, you much rather profit from taking a... More

Wow. I've stayed in a few places in need of some care and attention but this place just needs knocked down. Mould in the bathroom and broken door locks and beds made for a pretty uncomfortable stay. Not exactly cheap either as we paid around 200 for 3 people for 1 nights stay. Avoid at all costs.

But when we arrived the room, it's so dirty. disgusting, especially the bathroom and toilet. And the staff are not friendly at all. When we ask if there... More

Stayed here with two friends on the 2nd of June to the 5th of June. Well, they have clean linens and pretty comfortable bunk beds and the dorm room we got was pretty spacious. We got the 10 bed mixed dorm room at the basement. The room we got was poorly ventilated. I guess we got what we paid for,... More

Myself and my friend stayed here during Forbidden Fruit 2015 and it was a very reasonable (52euro for 3 nights on a bank holiday weekend in an 8 bed dorm) There was a little bit of confusion when we arrived and there are not a lot of shower and toilet facilities but overall a very enjoyable stay.

I stayed here on the 31st of March, our window in our room was broken and didn't close, which was dangerous as there was a fire escape right outside so someone could easily come into the room! Our bed was literally a thin mattress on a block of wood. The bathroom was clean but the toilet was under the sink... More

Stayed here the last weekend in march, found it very central. Close to train/bus station and 2 mins walk from O'Connell st. Booked a double room with private bathroom, it was small but very clean and perfect for what we wanted...just a place to rest. Surprisingly had a tv aswel with few channels. The only 2 things that I have... More
