“Good value for money, excellent location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2013

I stayed in this hostel with a group of friends while driving round Ireland. Great location from which you can explore Dublin on foot. We appreciated free parking at the back of the hotel. Rooms are simple but clean, no fuss breakfast. Next time I am in Dublin I will use this hostel again and spend the money I save on beer:-).

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

I stayed in this hostel over New Year's and had a very good experience. Although it was clearly very busy, the staff were really helpful and friendly and willing to answer any questions that we had about trips and tours. I travelled with two friends and we had an enormous six-bed room to ourselves with three sinks.

The rooms and showers were clean, which is more than can be said for other hostels I have stayed in. The downside was that the windows in our room tended to rattle really loudly in high winds. WiFi access is also rather patchy in the rooms.

The best things about the hostel are its location within walking distance of the city centre and the continental breakfast, which made my stay superb value. Get down there early if you want the scones!

The rooms were basic but ok. This was a classic hostel standard. Some male showers had really weak stream, but female showers were ok. The breakfast room was really nice. Very international staff. The whole place was surprisingly warm and heated.

The room itself was okay, but nothing special. Location could've been better, area seemed a bit shady and could've been closer downtown. Had a little trouble finding the place. Good experiences with the staff, and the food wasn't bad.
