This place was fine. It was a little cramped but overall not too bad. The wifi was pretty bad. It did not work in our room at all and we had to go to the common area to use it. The staff was friendly and helpful and we had our laundry done which was really nice. The location is right... More

The place was nice. We were initially worried when the cab driver told us not to be out late because of the meth heads in the area and he wasn't sure about the hostel but we were completely fine and had no problems. The hostel is only a few minutes away (15) from the train station and downtown life! Would... More

This cool hostel is a nice way to stay in the city on a budget. Has Proximity to the city and you can walk to almost everywere but it has a Poor Breakfast and Have to wash your own dishes after having breakfast.

Fantastic location, straight walk down the hill to all the hotspots of Dublin. The hostel was extremely clean, quiet and well facilitated. The staff on the welcome desk were extremely welcoming, polite, professional and made me feel at ease being a lone female traveler. I definitely recommend this hostel and will be staying again. Tip, get the number 16 bus... More

Room was large and nice. WiFi is free in the common room, but didn't work in the room unless you were pressed towards the door. Breakfast was decent. Very helpful staff who gave us a map, gave suggestions on where to go and what to see. OK location city-wise, but very near a bus stop connecting to the airport which... More

I (and 2 others) booked a private room. It was everything you'd want in a hostel: clean bed with sheets, clean bathroom and shower, towels provided, kitchenette, multiple outlets, excellent location near the city centre (always began the day with a short walk down O'Connell st. - makes sights much closer - for us, we didn't use any transportation but...

A very nice, comfortable and affordable hostel. The location is a short walk from the centre of town but is worth it. Has everything you would want, clean and tidy with helpful staff. The facilities were excellent and our room was great with an ensuite also. Has a good variety of rooms and a lounge for those quiet days. Great... More

I stayed here in May of 2015 in a private room with ensuite bathroom, choosing the hostel based largely on price (I found that even hostels in Dublin are quite expensive) as well as location (located just north of Parnell Square, quite an easy walk). The rooms are old and dated but comfortable. Breakfast is provided every morning and there... More

We stayed in a private room with ensuite. The room was rather large. It also had a kitchenette which had a fridge and microwave but I don't think there was any cutlery etc. So there wasn't too much point in the kitchenettes as you could have just used the kitchen downstairs. The room was fine and the place was cheap.... More
