Stayed here for two nights for my friends birthday - it was lovely, and clean and had a great atmosphere. Our private rooms were very spacious and perfect for what we needed! The staff were second to none, very helpful and made us feel very at home - Kev especially. Would definitely recommend this hostel to anyone. A very pleasant... More

This is the best hostel vibe I've experienced. The spacious reception/ social area that greets you is where it all happens. At night it becomes very busy and social, most guests will have beers they've bought from the shops before heading out. Its about a 10/15 min walk to the Temple Bar area. The hostel is very easy to find... More

We were thrilled with the security, had a great welcoming time and enjoyed cooking our own meals!! Location was very good! We loved Dublin. The free a.m. walking tour was great, but the sell off tour of pubs in evening for 12 Euro was HORRIBLE... many quit the tour early, it was so cheesy!! No traditional music!

Location is good: close to busaras station & connolly station, close to bus stops and tram stop, in the city center. Good facilities (I didn't taste it but it seemed good.) Everything was clean, secure and staff welcoming. By reading that, you must think why I think it was poor! Well, except from all these qualities, this place was too... More

Thanks for your review. We are sorry that you found it difficult to sleep while at our hostel. We do try and request that our guests respect the privacy of others and keep the noise down after 11pm but occasionally we have guests who misbehave. More

As soon as we walked in, the staff was extremely friendly, and even let us crash on their couches while we waited for check-in. Unfortunately, luggage storage was in the basement and they put us on the top floor. However, the friendly and warm atmosphere was perfect for our first night in Dublin. Would definitely come again!

The price was ok, you have plenty of facilities in the hostel and it's well located, it turns a little bit noisy during the night but overall it's ok, in the reception you get plenty of information on what to do in the city and the staff is very helpful.

Stayed with 3 friends in a 8-bed female room. Overall the stay was decent. The best part about this hostel is the location - it is right near the city center and we were able to walk to every place we wanted to go. The hostel offers free wi-fi which is nice but unfortunately is only located in the common... More
