I did arrive late at night/early hours of the morning and the guy at reception let me in, was very welcoming and checked me in quickly. I stayed in a private room and found the room to be comfortable and clean. The shared bathroom and toilets were also clean on the floor I was staying, keep in mind that you... More

I only stayed in this hostel for 1 night but I've traveled and stayed in hostels extensively across the world, and this is not one of the best or even averagely good. The carpet in the room was dirty, smelly and spotted. The windows couldn't be opened to let fresh air in and the 4 bed room was so cramped,... More

The rooms are clean and the beds have nice white linen. The hostel is basic but close to all amenities and is great value for money. The staff were nice and there were lots of tourists passing in and out. Not a bad place.

We used this hostel recently for a stag party and it was perfect. A few minutes walk to the temple bar and only 200mts from the main street. The airport shuttle dropped us right at the door. The hostel was clean and the beds comfy. The water was only luke warm in the shower was my only complaint.

This hostel is very central and is ideal for going out. We had a nice clean room and a good hot shower. It is next to the bus station which is great as it is 1minute from the airport bus. Breakfast is basic but fine and the hostel was very cheap meaning more money for the temple bar :)

The girls working there were very nice and the location is close to everything by foot. The goods points stopped there. That was no hot shower and to get water you need to press the button constantly. There was mold everywhere, it was old and didn't look clean and the smell was horrific.
