I couldn't fault the staff at reception, they were very friendly and helpful. We knew the city well but needed somewhere to crash for the night due to previous plans falling through. I would definitely try harder to find an alternative hostel in Dublin in future.
While the hostel itself felt safe, from what I can remember an all female dorm cost more than a mixed one, it was only a matter of a couple of euros, but upon reflection, this doesn't seem just. In order for myself and my friend, also female, to have peace of mind, we had to pay extra? Safety shouldn't come at a cost. I didn't have the spare cash to pay more than had been advertised on the website, so a mixed dorm it was. We were the only 2 girls in a dorm of 8, in a room with large old windows that looked out onto the Liffey. It captured all the sun and the room was stifling as a result, I imagine its cold in the winter. I wasn't tempted in the least to have a shower in the morning, the bathroom felt and looked grubby. The shower stalls had flimsy shower curtains, and with 6 other guys waiting to shower there, I just wanted to leave as rapidly as possible.
The place is in need of major renovation, if it hopes to compete with the far more superior hostels on the continent.
