  • The hostel is ok but it is pretty exepensive if you look at what you get for the money. Its quite greedy to charge extra for luggage storage. It was the only place I visited in Ireland that did that, and the hostel was also the most expensive place I stayed at, and actually it wasn't any better than the other ones. So I am a bit dissapointed. The best thing is the location, even though Dublin isn't that big so I'll probably find a cheaper place for next time.

  • The staff was very friendly. They let us come in the morning before we checked in, use their showers, eat breakfast and keep our luggage there all day. They have tons of activities and ideas of what to do around Dublin. The staff made us feel right at home and very welcome. I recommend this hostel to any young person traveling through Dublin. Great place!

  • My husband and I stayed here in a private room during our budget honeymoon and loved it. The free breakfast was pretty great for free! The building itself is really fun with graffiti walls and bright colors - plus it's located right across the water from the Temple Bar district and many tourist attractions. The room was small, but quite nice and comfortable with a tiny private bathroom. It was clean, and our private double room was really quiet and private, which we loved. We would stay again!

  • The only thing I sand against is the fact that you have to pay in order to secure a safer place for your suitcase upon arrival to the hostel and while waiting for the check-in and the room to be ready. In no other hostel you have to pay 2 euros for that. If your get away with that, your hostel will deservedly be on the top of preferences.

  • Excellent location. Quirky place, nicely decorated. Adequate breakfast. Room was ..ok.. shower facility uninviting, could do with updating. A little on the expensive side for a family for one night but we were grateful of it on a VERY busy night in Dublin.

  • Awesome location and a nice place overall, clean and with many facilities (except laundry, for which they'll charge €10 and give you a bike in order to clean your clothes at a nearby laundry). Too crowded, I advise to always look after your valuable properties, as thefts (of clothes and food, in my experience) are easy to happen and the staff will be too busy looking after their numerous customers to effectively be of any help.

  • The location of the hostel was brilliant and the staff were nice! Some (not all) of the staff were pleasant and were full of information. My only complaint was how we were given two keys that were meant to work for the building door and for our room. One worked well for our room but the other was selective at its function. Both keys did not work for the main building door. We had to go into reception everytime and request them to open the door for us as the doorbell was faulty.

  • I was staying at the hostel for a week and on the 2nd day, they water shortage began. We were initially told it would only be for 1 night but it lasted the entire length of my stay! There was one functional shower but it only ran freezing cold or scolding hot, and there were only a handful of working toilets & sinks for the entire building. I think I would've been less annoyed by this if they had been upfront about the situation from the start, but instead it was a different excuse each time.
