I stayed in this hostel for just 2 nights with a friend in an 8 bed dorm. We really enjoyed our time in Dublin and a good hostel always helps! The staff were friendly and helpful and the room was comfortable and clean. Yes, there was noise from the pub downstairs at early hours of the morning but it didn't bother myself or my friend-it really wasn't that bad! We missed breakfast on the first morning, but on the second it was fine. Don't expect a feast but the cereal, toast, tea and juice was more than enough for us. The best thing about the hostel has definitely got to be the location. It is situated in Temple Bar, which is a lively, atmospheric place to stay and the rest of Dublin is so easily accessable. We walked everywhere while we were there and it was so easy to get around. There are some nice pubs around Temple Bar, although quite commercial. However, we found the pub below the hostel to be one of the worst. It was nice to be able to just fall upstairs to bed after a drink, but to be honest I just wouldn't bother! A good pub is O'Donaghue's, which is near St Stephens Park-really great atmosphere and much more traditional than those in Temple Bar. The hostel is also great value for money. Dublin is SO expensive so we were very grateful to have found such a reasonably priced place to stay. So, I would definitely recommend the hostel to anyone wanting budget accommodation-we had a great time!
