Good for college students. This is really a place for young backpackers as it has a college dorm atmosphere. It's quite loud (music blares in the lobby and sounds travel through the halls) and lively. Having to use your key card for several doors is a bit of an inconvenience along with the push taps in the bathrooms and showers. I would opt for a hostel closer to the Temple Bar area if you plan to do most of your sightseeing in the city as many attractions are south of the River Liffey. A convenient location for those needing to take buses and trains elsewhere. Located on a rather dingy and less frequented driveway-like street which might be intimidating for travelers walking alone to the hostel at night. Our room was fine, but the smell of musty upholstery permeated the air.
