This hostel is located in the city center, so you don't need to spend much money for transportation. They have quite big common area (kitchen & living room) and they also offer free dinner event in every week. The room and toilet were clean. But the room is little bit smaller than other hostels.

Stayed here for 4 nights and was really happy with the hostel. Excellent location close to everything with a great staff. Everyone was always really friendly and helpful. Dorm beds were comfortable and had lights and plugs for each bed. Really nice big common kitchen where breakfast is served in the mornings and nice cozy, common areas to hang out...

We stayed in this hostel during our visit to Dublin last December (2016). The hostel is centrally located, so not far away from most of Dublin's main sights. Staff is really friendly, there's a good Wi-Fi connection and breakfast is really great - so far the best breakfast I've had in a hostel. The rooms are "clean enough" for a...

I loved this hostel. It has a great common area to hang out. There is a closet to store your bag if you arrive before check in time. The rooms and bathrooms were very clean. The locations is great...in a little alley way very close to where the Liffey meets O'Connell St. Very close to Temple Bar. Close to bus...

Perfect location to get you anywhere downtown in max 10 mins. Very friendly staff, clean rooms and common room. I did enjoy the ways the walls were decorated on corridors. Also the beds had a nice solution for charging phones and using a power socket. And a decently sized box where you could lock your belongings, big enough to accommodate...

The hostel is fairly centrally located which made it easy to walk pretty much everywhere - the only times I needed public transportation were coming in from Heuston Station and leaving to the airport. The rooms were clean enough and we had a shower and bathroom inside our six-bed all-female dorm. The room faced the street, which was incredibly noisy...

My first impression when I walked in was that I think the pictures on line are a little old, I think the paint in the common areas could have used the paint a little freshened up, but I imagine it would be difficult to work around the murals on the walls, The paint however in the room seemed very new...

Had such a good experience at this hostel. I stayed in a 6 bed mixed dorm but it was never full the whole time I was there (4 nights). The rooms and ensuite bathroom were very clean. I also loved how the hostel had free (often food related) activities every night. I partook in movie & ice cream night and...

I stayed for two nights and had such a difficult time with my reservation. There was a mix up for the first night I stayed and the receptionist had to rearrange my room to accommodate my previous requests. The second night was no better. One of the roommates (I was in a 4 bed mixed dorm) came in very loudly...
