    The room was and the bed comfortable. There're lots of showers, but they're not not always clean. The room has a bad soundproofing. The staff is efficient, but uncaring. They could do with a smile from time to time.

    The hostel looks neat in the reception area, bar, and rooms. It is in a good location, near Templebar, Trinity, etc. It seems a bit overpriced for a hostel / what you get though, with no towels or extras (our stay was $65 a night...More
