    Noisy and Unsanitary

    This was only my second stay in a hostel. The only other time I tried a hostel was in the same city as this one, at the same price and a short distance away. Generator Dublin, is however not comparable at all to the previous one. It was noisy and the bathrooms were not so clean.
