  • Aardig hostel op een leuke locatie. Helaas was het ontbijt zeer beperkt. Geen koffie!!!!. De keuken was schoon , maar je kon alleen een magnetron gebruiken. Overdag geen verwarming, maar 's nachts te veel warmte. Dit was niet zelf te regelen. En we hadden geen wifi op de kamer. Verder prima hostal.

  • I went to Dublin for a quick weekend getaway. Hostel was clean and secure, staff was very nice and helpful. The hostel is about a 10 min walk from downtown which was perfect. I would definitely consider booking here again next time I'm in Ireland.

  • There weren't enough plugs for all the people and the bathroom taps were not practical at all (I was in a room for 8 people). The shower door didn't open very well when you were inside the shower. The location was excellent. You could walk to the center and bus stops were very close to the hostel. The price quality was very good. Breakfast was not vert good: too basic.

  • Beds were extremely loud and wobbly. Could not fall sleep. "Breakfast" consists of toat, marmelade and cheap orange juice. Coffee costs extra. Location is not central but a 20min walk from temple bar district.

  • I really enjoyed talking with the Staff, especially Susanna. She gave me a map and marked many good neighborhoods and sights to check out. She was on point with her suggestions of the Black Sheep pub and Sweenys pub. Thank you for making my stay in Dublin memorable. Also, I enjoyed meeting other travelers from around the world in the hostel and watching movies and the football games in the living room. The hostel is quiet, but I enjoyed that and it was nice to relax after a fun day exploring.
