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

Writing the review at the hostel, even. It's a nice hostel-- free walking tour every morning with good access to other tours. The staff were helpful, though kept trying to get me to go on their pub crawl. Was thinking about it, but decided against it.

Thanks for your nice review - we will have to investigate the creaky bed though - that's a first for us but don't worry we will check into it. Those beds costs a fortune and they should not creak!!!
