This was the first hostel of my holiday I had stayed in, so I was unsure what to expect.
All in all was pretty good. There were just a few things that I would change.
They only have one room key per room. So if you're by yourself in a 6 bed dorm and you're out drinking or dancing and you get home late then you'd have to wake someone in the room up to come and open the door. I can understand not wanting there to be a million room keys to keep track of. But there surely has to be a better way.
The bathrooms were nice with lots of hot water.
The staff member who was at the main reception the two days I was there was really helpful, was able to help with any questions and advice in where to travel.
The included breakfast was pretty amazing and for 14€ was a great deal.
I could get the wifi up in the room on the 4th floor (they have a elevator to help get your bags up to your floor).
The only problem I had was with the bed. It was really hard and I had to steal another pillow from and empty bed because they are so flat. Also the beds are really short. Probably only 5'5ft long. So it was a good 6-7 inches too short for me. But let's be honest, you make do.
Would recommend staying here - great price and fantastic location. Right in the middle of temple bar. Easy to find late at night too :)
