I stayed for close to a week but didn't spend a ton of time at the hostel. It is quite out of the way if you are walking- about 25 minutes from the bus station on Parnell. There is a bus stop outside. I used that as my landmark when coming home as Redclyffe is the name of the house and not a street. I agree with the statement about there being no duvet cover. Due to the fact you only bring your sheets down, I don't suspect the rest is cleaned often. It was a bit noisy, and difficult to navigate around in the morning. The staff was okay. The room I was in had few outlets, one which was broken, making charging between 6 strangers a chore. The light switch for our bathroom wasn't even near the bathroom, adding to the noise factor of drunk stumbling girls. The facilities was fairly clean and the lawn was very lovely to sit and have dinner upon. The facilities didn't really make up for the distance, however. At least I got a lot of exercise.
