I tried to get a private room, but none were available, even several months in advance. Ended up booking all 4 beds in a 4 bed dorm, with private bath. Room was therefore spacious. Bathroom was equivalent to an RV bathroom; miniature sink, and shower. With earplugs, we slept fine. Just stay away from the room between the stairs and common bathroom 65 stairs up (not sure if it was technically the 3rd floor), if you don't want to here people coming and going all night. And wear earplugs. It is a short walk down to Parnell and O'Connell streets and public transportation access. Breakfast was generous, but we only used it one day, as we had early plans on the other days. When I compare to staying in a nearby hotel though, it was a good value.

This is a budget hostel within a 10 minute to the city center and the heart of Dublin, that was a great perk to staying here. Another positive about staying here was the WIFI, it worked well. Unfortunately that is where the good aspects end. This wasn't a cheap place to stay, the city is expensive, so there was very little value staying here as it was still expensive. The breakfast was terrible, there was no lift, and we had to carry our bags 6 flights of stairs. Also, EXTREMELY noisy at night, and was woken up every single night.

The rooms were all nice and clean with lockers provided, you buy a panicky for 2€ at the reception. The kitchen was a great size and meant we could prepare our meals there, making the trip more affordable. Breakfast is provided and is basic but good. The bathrooms aren’t really big enough for the number of people but you don’t normally have to wait too long. Some members of staff weren’t very helpful with advice of what to do and see in the area but others were helpful and enthusiastic.

Of course it depends on what you want, but if you want a clean, quiet place to sleep you'd better look for other options. Hygiene clearly not proper, inadequate ventilation and noise from people shouting in the hostel as well as from the street... It's worth spending something more for a better deal.

We spent a few days there and even though we were a little sceptic about our stay in a hostel,our choice rewarded us. Very helpful and patient staff (i didn't stop asking questions!), clean room and other facilities The best thing was the use of the kitchen so we had the chance to prepare other meals as well in order to avoid further expenses
