This place is really good value for the price. The beds are comfortable by hostel standards and my friends and I got a lot of information on places to go and good nearby places to eat. All the staff we encountered were good humored and nice. Bathrooms are about average for a large hostel but nothing too awful at all. We checked in very late at night and checked out very early and had no problems.
We walked everywhere we needed to go from this hostel. It's not necessarily right in the middle of all the action but it's only a 15 minute walk from most things to see.
There are 2 decent size common room areas. Some computers with free internet, a pool table, television and small book exchange. Your stay includes breakfast (coffee, juice, cereal, toast, hard boiled eggs, grapefruit). The only negative is that there are no lockers, the atmosphere is a bit quite and it's a big hard to meet other travelers there (but then you could just go down to Temple Bar and meet people there).
There is no illuminated sign in front of the hostel but there is a decent size white sign on the ground by the door. it should still be easy enough to find. I always felt safe walking around the area at night.
