We stayed here last weekend, for my birthday with my boyfriend. On arrival at the hostel I found the staff to friendly and willing to help with maps or places to visit. The break out area and kitchen are littered with posters advertising trips, free walks etc and if we had been there longer would have definitely visited some of the places mentioned.
The hostel is in a perfect location, around 5/10 mins walk from the main drinking area Temple Bar. There is a supermarket near the hostel, but I would recommend visiting Dunns a little further as it has more choice and a lot cheaper.
We had booked a private room on the third floor, which had two bunk beds. The beds were clean and the room was tidy with a sink and place to hang clothes. The showers were located at the end of the hallway. There was about 4or 5 showers and toilets and never seemed to be a queue.
I was impressed with the kitchen facilities although a horrid shade of orange, there were 3 or 4 ovens, hobs, kettles and microwaves - plenty of space for a few people to cook.
The best thing about the hostel was definitely the location and the friendly staff. We were due to check out on Sunday morning but were going to a gig and our flight wasn't until Monday morning at 6am. The staff allowed us to use their locker room facilities even though we were not booked in for the night and for us to come back at 2am to collect them!
Only one thing is breakfast was literally cereal and toast with water and coffee and the paid food which looked delicious was a bit of a tease as it was served next to the free breakfast, but it looked reasonably priced!
