  • 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.

  • Was in overall pretty good :) . One critic i must mention is the cleaning in the kitchen. Personally i like dish brushs a lot more. Ended up eating takeaway cause i felt things did not get clean in the kitchen with the sponge lying in the dirty sink all the time. Just 1 tip for improving a otherwise great hostel

  • Overall it is a good experience for me. But those who have difficulties in sleeping should not choose this hostel. The upper floor creates lots of noise for those who sleep under it each time someone on the upper floor walk by. The kitchen cookers needs some directions, the shower is quite annoying but it would be good for someone who would like to practice their muscles. The staff are very very friendly and helpful. You can borrow the hair dryer in the reception and they fail to mention it.
