4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service
One of the best hostels I have stayed in. The individual pods are nice because you have more privacy and less noisy (hearing others snoring!). Even though I understand the concept with the showers to save water, constantly engaging the button is taxing while showering and I think I actually stayed in the shower longer. The rooms are non smoking. However, the place needs to have signage and enforce people on the street not smoking right below rooms especially with the windows open for ventilation. Overall, good price for accommodation and would recommend. Book early if you know you are coming to Ireland as the housing prices are high due to housing refugees.

5/5 Excellent

Great location.

3/5 Okay

The hostel is right next to the police station which makes the area feel a bit safer. The hostel is fine. The pods are nice and clean and feel quite cozy. Wish the bathroom and shower were in separate rooms as always felt like you had to rush so as not to hog the bathroom. This hostel also does not have as much of a community vibe as I have experienced at others, though am wondering if that is just a post covid reality and not unique to this hostel. The bar downstairs is nice.

Really liked the roof top patio (just wish I knew they had a closing time), really liked that they offered walking tours and beer crawl tour to get the people staying at the hostel to meet The bar was beautiful, it was very clean inside and I loved my room It was quiet and easy to access

Nice, quiet hostel. Convenient to Connolly station and the Busáras Luas station. The bar serves a nice pint of Guinness (not too cold). The pods are a little narrow and stuffy; I recommend using a USB-powered fan to keep air moving.
