This Hostel was clean and the staff was very kind. I slept quite well, the sheets, pillows were spotless and the hostel itself wasn't very noisy after a long night and bathroom was fairly clean. However, I didn't quite understand why the shower and the toilet were on the same level and not divided. The water from the shower was all over. Another complaint would be the location of the hostel. It was much too far from the city centre and the directions given to us from the bus station was not very helpful. In fact it was a bit confusing.

We stayed here for one night at the beginning of September and actually really enjoyed it. It was clean and I liked that they handed us our bedding when we checked in (that way you know it isn't dirty). It was nice to have a bathroom and vanity in each room, most hostels only provide 2-3 showers and bathrooms for the whole place. However, most hostels also provide free breakfast. This place did not. Overall, I would recommend staying here. Worth the price.

The hostle was ok the rooms wer big but the kitchen was realy bad, the pans were losing there teflon so that when you cooked something in it you had to eat the teflon with it! To the city centre you could go by bus in 5 min. With a bus that stops every 10 min In front of the hostel. The staff didn't know were the post was and set us of in a wrong direction. The rooms are quite big and have a own bathroom with a shower and a toilett but some of them don't work very well. You can get a good breakfast in the hostel but you have to pay extra for that.

I stayed for close to a week but didn't spend a ton of time at the hostel. It is quite out of the way if you are walking- about 25 minutes from the bus station on Parnell. There is a bus stop outside. I used that as my landmark when coming home as Redclyffe is the name of the house and not a street. I agree with the statement about there being no duvet cover. Due to the fact you only bring your sheets down, I don't suspect the rest is cleaned often. It was a bit noisy, and difficult to navigate around in the morning. The staff was okay. The room I was in had few outlets, one which was broken, making charging between 6 strangers a chore. The light switch for our bathroom wasn't even near the bathroom, adding to the noise factor of drunk stumbling girls. The facilities was fairly clean and the lawn was very lovely to sit and have dinner upon. The facilities didn't really make up for the distance, however. At least I got a lot of exercise.

We stayed here for 2 nights and were pleased with what we got overall. The staff were very friendly and helpful and there was both a kitchen available for our use or the option to buy breakfast. There is a small grocery/convenience shop just across the road and the hostel is just a 3 minute bus journey to the city centre or a 15 minute walk. If coming from the airport and there's 2+ people its cheaper to get a taxi than the bus. It worked out as €14 for our taxi.

The only slight hygiene issue with the hostel is that they only give you two sheets and a pillow cover, but no duvet cover... So if you move out of your sheets in the night you can end up using the same duvet cover that the last person used.
