Yes, these are dorm rooms, but you can stay in a dorm room en suite. The shower is very strong. The beds are comfortable. There is no TV or hair dryer. I brought a hair dryer, but there is no mirror close to the plug. However, the real reason you would choose to stay here is for the location and price. They are both excellent.
We felt like we were in a quiet oasis inside the city. Perfect location close to Temple Bar, Grafton Street, Museums and Stephen's Green. We walked to Dublin Castle and Guinness but some might think that those locations are a little bit of a hike!
We used laundry facilities and my husband was able to connect to the internet.
Absolutely great location and atmosphere!
