I spent 5 nights with a friend there and it's still warm around my heart when I think about the place.
The location was perfect, only a few minutes walk to Temple Bar and the supermarkets and Trinity College and pretty much everything.
The staff were awesome, they were always hanging around with other people, very sweet and open. I somehow managed to lose the keys of my locker so I went to the reception to ask for help and the girl there just laughed helpfully and was all ready to just give me a saw and warn me not to put my thumb in front.
We were in a 10-bed room and it was ok, there was enough space, a bathroom and toilet inside the room, and no noise came from outside. I was only occasionally annoyed with the lockers that you had to put under your bed and it would get stuck somewhere in the middle and were kinda noisy.
The kitchen was lovely, we had breakfast there every day which was really really good and we cooked dinner one evening, after which we joined a group at one table, drank a bit and did a dance for a video for a friend of someone of the group. We don't have the vid but the memory will be forever there.
The girl on the reception also played really good music (Alt-J made me smile).
