Our first time staying in a hostel and we were nervous about it, turned out to be fantastic! Very clean, very accommodating, great facilities and we even had a bathroom in our room! No complaints about noise and the staff were great, especially the lady who cleaned our room, she was more than friendly! We will definitely make sure to... More

- My one small criticism would be that breakfast was nice but would have been great if wholewheat/brown bread was an option. + Power outlets at every bed was excellent, not every hostel has this and it makes all the difference! Great location, clean comfy beds. Really nice common areas and very friendly staff.

I only stayed there for one night with my boyfriend. We were in a four person room with a shares bathroom for only our room (we only had one other person in the room that night). The room was very clean and the breakfast was a typical hostel breakfast set up. We didn't use the kitchen, but it seemed nice.... More

This hostel is very well situated at the heart of the city. There is a lot of space (in the communal areas, enough bathrooms and space for bags in the rooms) and it is very clean. The breakfast offers a lot of variety. Wifi works very well and every bed has two plugs youhou🎉. It's quiet in the rooms but... More

The place is in the center of Dublin, very near the Temple Bar area and all the touristic sites. The check in was very nice and fast. The common areas are very pleasant and the free breakfast is nice. The hostel is clean, the only negative point is that our room was on the 3rd floor facing the street so... More

I've stayed at this hostel twice now because I have enjoyed the atmosphere and staff so much! It is close to everything you could want and can easily find your way home at night by following the light at the top of the Spire next to the hostel! The staff is welcoming and always gave me great ideas on where... More

The hostel was very easy to find and walkable from anything we wanted to see, including the Guinness factory, Temple Bar, amazing churches and the castle.The customer service was incredible, including 24/7 reception always ready to help. Plus my friend lost her necklace that was very special to her whilst staying there, and when she emailed to ask if they'd... More

I stayed at one of the female bedrooms. One of the windows was broken, so it always was opened and the cold get inside, plus the radiator was really small for that big bedroom and with the window broken was useless. The bathrooms, specially the showers were not clean. Breakfast and location were the only good things about it.

This place has a really good social room, nice staff, good kitchen. The bedroom is not so good but it's OK. The toilet is good but the shower is a terrible experience. Despite of this I recommend this place for short stay.
