Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Good location for walking or transportation access and afriendly staff. Great place for teens and young adults but that also made it a bit noisy, at times, for older folk. Still, a convenient and reasonably priced choice for a family with young adult children. Do take a look at the breakfast offering before pre-paying for it.

It was hot as hell in our room at night. And I do believe the walls are made of paper. The staff was a mixed of friendly and some fair. A great spot for 20 something old folks but for a family it was not the right spot. The location however was decent.

The hostel is a little bit further from city centre but it is located right beside Jameson and still a decent walking decent into Temple Bar and all the other attraction locations. Staff were friendly, the hostel was clean, and the bar and lounge area was very large and nice.

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The doors to the bedrooms banged shut, it was difficult to close them without making noise. The indoor bathroom in the rooms had practically no noise insulation, you could hear everything. The breakfast could include fresh cut fruit instead of canned fruit and granola as well as the current cornflakes and Chococrispys

5/5 Excellent

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
The staff is great and there's plenty of small things they do to make your stay great. I wouldn't pay for the breakfast, especially if you're lactose intolerant like me, because it's milk and cereal, yogurts and grain, or a cold roll of bread with slices of ham and slices of cheese for 7,50 euros. They very nicely refunded me when i explained though and it's 5 minutes from Fegan's who is delicious with similar prices. I had to change room in the last day of my stay and rooms giving out on the street are quieter than the ones giving on the court. There's no fridge or kitchen you can use to buy stuff at Tesco either. It was a good stay overall, though, and the staff were really great.
