  • Everything was certainly worth what i paid to stay here. I will say some of the guest did not choose to follow the quiet hours posted and the walls are a bit thin. Overall, a very good experience.

  • I stayed here for 4 nights with two of my friends and we boiled to death! We were on the second floor where the heat was jacked up so high we were suffering dehydration, they were not accommodating to this issue at all. The showers were cold, but don't worry you wont notice cause it'll feel great due to how inferno that is the second floor. We were under the impression that wifi was throughout the hostel, but it really only worked in the lobby.

  • Staff disorganized. The place is good but the location is awful with the train passing at 20 meters from the room from 5am.

  • The hostel is in a good position, near all the most important places of the city center. The staff is nice and if you need any kind of information, they are available at any time of the day. The kitchen is useful and easy to use. Lots of people from every part in the world meet here. The staff can organize a trip on the coast or wherever you want. Rooms are cleaned and comfortable. Everyone travels to Dublin should go there to spend the night. Breakfast is included in the price.

  • The hostel was ok for one night. I slept in a female dorm with 14 ladies. The only annoying thing was that people get in and out all night long. It didn´t bother me that our room was right next to the train tracks. The bathroom and toilets are cleaned, but it gets dirty fast when you´re sharing it with so many people. The mattress was thin, but for one night it was fine. If i were to stay longer, i would go for a room with less people for a good night sleep.
