The hostel is located very near the city centre. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The rooms aren't not very clean, but it's still a good accommodation option for Dublin (because of the prices of course). Sometimes (if the window are open) you can have problems with getting to sleep because there are a lot of tourists on the streets, especially in the nights when they come back from the pubs :-)

These must have been the most comfortable ever in a hostel, making you wish there wasn't so much to see in town :)
Location is good, near to temple bar and easy to reach with public transport from for example, the airport (bus 16A)

Also a nice social area and breakfast was OK.

The staff and atmosphere made me feel at home. They always have fun events on during the week. Its in a perfect locaton right in the city centre. The en suite bathrooms are amazing! The atmosphere is what makes the hostel though. Everyone is so friendly, and everyone becomes part of a big family by the end of their stay.

Room Tip: First floor bathrooms are fabulous

We were pleasantly surprised with how big the room was, the staff were sooooo friendly and laid back (didn't charge us for being late/losing our key), and after the night, let us leave our bags there for the day while we visited the town. Excellent stuff,
thanks, thanks again,
Simon & Rosie
