“Not much to complain about”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

Very organized hostel, the front staff was always helpful and nice. The printer's quality was really bad, but they didn't charge me for the print, so fair enough. Free Wifi only on the ground floor :( Nice breakfast, with some extras I didn't expect in "intercontinental breakfast".

We stayed in a twin room. It was very clean (and was cleaned every day), so that's a positive. But it was extremely small, I'd guess 6m² including the bathroom. Hardly any storage possibilitys (one chair, a small desk, 4 clothes hooks), especially in the bathroom. The free walls could easily be used to hanging clothes and stuff, if you would install some more clothes hooks or something like that.
The beds were really small, probably only about 1,70m long. Luckily we were both not that big!

The room was quiet compared to the first hostel I stayed in, as it was towards the backyard. We heard the constant noise of a ventilation as well, but it was allright, because pretty monotonous. Not that much noise on the corridor, but maybe because we were on the top floor.
Good location, not in the center of course, but bus stops nearby, and only a 10 Minutes walk to Temple Bar area.

Room Tip: Twin rooms are really small, they would be perfect for one person. The 6 or 8 bed dorms looked a lot...

Stayed in twin room, it is small and really noisy. There is a constant noise outside the window (like a ventilation or something). People making noise in the corridor all night and there is no sound isolation. Really hard to sleep. Not so clean. The breakfast is poor. Expensive for what it is. Good location.

The front desk people are incredibly nice and funny - the computers could use an update but other than that everything is great. Fun location - a bit noisy at night as it is a hostel - but very secure.

My friend and I stayed at this hostel very last minute and we are SOOO glad that we did. The location was perfect, close to the bus line. The service was beyond great. The price for the private two room was extremely good. They had free international calls which I had to use few times and it was great. The rooms were big and clean. Someone was always cleaning the place. I can go on and on about this hostel. We had an amazing experience there and we would definitely go back there!

The first time we visited Dublin we stayed in this hostel. The second time in Abigail's, closer to the town center. Nice hostel, clean, large rooms, nice communal area. We loved it. Like i said, the only down side is that it was a bit of a walk from the center.

We booked a 6 bedrooms to stay all together but when we arrived they told us that there was a problem in the reservation and we had to split into two rooms, with people that we didn't know.
The breakfast was self-service with ham, butter, milk, coffe, some juices, and bread. The rooms were clean, but very small.

Staff was super friendly and accomodating. Stayed in a 6 room dorm. There was a good size roller locker for each person that fits a medium-large size piece of luggage. Bathrooms were very clean and there was a lot of food to choose from at breakfast time.
Great central spot for Temple bar and the river. Would stay here again!

Stayed July 2013, travelled with family
