  • I used to stay at their hotel suite before. It used to be a good hotel so I decided to give their hostel a try. I stayed with my boyfriend in a 6 bed mixed dorm. The whole floor had the atmosphere of a refugee camp. No young people at all! The beds seemed used with some used tissues on the self. We got a new bed, but the other one was not cleaned after we notified the reception. And they put us in a room with 3 old men of whom one kept on smoking in the bathroom at night. Never again!

  • the staff are very rude to clients they don,t have good customer approach. the water in the shower is very cold, what a bad setting. I will suggest the water setting should be left for the customer to set them self.

  • This place is a dump - I do't know how it got such good rating when it comes to staff and cleanliness. The building itself is lovely, and the rooms very cute. But everything is broken, and the kitchen is below any food safety standards. Please get a fridge from this millenium? Also about the staff: the guy in the morning duty was very polite and nice, but the evening people were real weirdos, and very rude.

  • Good location in the centre of Dublin. Dormitories in a basement, very dense. Poor kitchen, bathroom neglected.

  • One of the best hostels we have ever stayed in. The staff was uber-friendly and helpful. We especially liked the private rooms. The dorm rooms were very nice too -- they were very private. Each bed had its own lamp and was almost like a sleeping pod.

  • Everything here was fantastic! The staff were helpful, the rooms were clean and fresh sheets and towels brought in daily. For people over 6' this is a great place to stay as the beds are big enough to fit in and you'll have plenty of room in the bathroom. Anything you want to see is within walking distance. This was a great place to stay!
