    Superb

    The price is absolutely pocket friendly, free wifi and a pub

    Staying second floor and the shared toilet is at the floor. I think toilets are part of our basic needs so we should have them nearby just incase ;)

    Comfortable beds and good bedding Stylish and well thought out environment Bar open late Everything you might need at reception, from towels to umbrellas

    The breakfast was good, but simple - we would have loved something hot.

    Great hostel. Loved the bar and common areas. My eight bed dorm was fine, it just seemed to get a bit stuffy as the night went on. Breakfast was worth the little bit extra too.

    My eight bed dorm got a bit stuffy during the night. Made it hard to sleep.

    Fabulous

    Lobby looks like a hotel Apart from the stuffy air, rooms are very comfortable, modern and clean Safety boxes inside the rooms are convenient and safe Great bathrooms, clean and modern Nice bar chill out area

    Air in the rooms can get very stuffy, since windows are small and dont open up very far. Ask for air refresher. Not all staff members are very friendly. Even though at only 4 Euros, breakfast choice is pretty limited. Wifi was pretty slow at times.

    Superb

    Facilities (bar, lounge, dining) were awesome, the staff was very helpful and polite. The location is walking distance from anywhere in dublin. There is a free tour of dublin pick up rep that stops by the Hotel every morning, check with the front desk about times. You can take the Airlink from the Airport to get dropped off by the hostel

    The restrooms are on the another floor and you might want to bring some shower shoes!

    Superb

    Location was good for a concert in Kilmainham. Staff were courteous and friendly, and hostel was very clean. Good value for money.

    However, our double bed seemed to be two singles pushed together and began to seperate in the middle. Also we were woken in the early hours by late night revellers on our floor.

    Superb

    Amazing facilities, great value for money, easy to meet new people, good location

    Some of the staff could be a little more friendly. The hostel is huge and there might be an "industrial-hostel" feeling that is a bit impersonal.

    Superb

    Ease of booking and the transparency . Nothing hidden , what you see on line actually what you get. Fantastic value for money and very well located.

    Nothing to grumble about , but a little niciety would possibly be availability of towels for a small charge . Loved it though

    the whole interior was very nice and clean, I also liked the location, it was close to the centre

    just around 1am some people had a loud party in the next room

    Superb

    All of the staff that I came into contact with over my four night stay were very helpful and friendly. I felt very comfortable during this time.

    I thought the shower/toilet area was in need of cleaning more throughly.

    Fabulous

    Very nice interior of the reception/lounge/bar. Friendly staff. Good location. Good connection with the airport (bus stop only 5 mins away).

    Standard and interior of the room very average (especially when you compare it to the reception which is stunning). Could hear everything from the corridor and next door, didnt have a good night sleep ... Very noisy bathroom door, cant use without waking up the other person.

    I absolutely loved the staff, how clean everything was, how beautiful the bar and chandeliers look, how helpful the help desk is, I loved the people I roomed with, I loved the chest under the bed that I could lock my belongings in...
