          Staff are very friendly and helpfully; best location; seperated bathroom for female;dorm is spacious and bright;

          I don't know why the floor in room and corridor is a bit noisy when people step on, so when some people need to catch early train or airplane, it's easy to wake up those who still sleeping... ...

          Very nice personnel; great location, right in the heart of dublin city; the room was very comfortable; definitely I would return back there

          Location and spirit! Friendly environment and internet for free! Really good rate price/quality

          you could listen what was happening outside room, but still nothing that a young person can't handle :)

          Kitchen available for the customers: really good! Breakfast and cooking service self service and you can cook what you want I think is a really good thing. Position really good: yuo are in the middle of Dublin. Reception's guys: really polite and honest.

          There's a lot of noise (irish dance pub next to the hostel). The toilet and the shower are not very comfortable,there are not space, but they're decent.

          The staff and mainly the manager of the hostel was a really nice. The kitchen and the common room.

          Great location, great atmosPhere and fun n knowledgeable staff. The bathrooms were pretty good

          There are heaps of stairs to the rooms specially as we were on the top floor-not good when you are lugging 2 heavy backpacks

          Showers. Not many and not private at all.

          The room was fine, but the bathroom needed work. Only one of the showers worked properly. It seemed as if the bathroom did not get cleaned very often. The room was very comfortable and the location was awesome! For the cost, it was worth it!

          Peter the Manager was lovely and really helpful. The location is amazing, so central. The lounge area is nice and cozy, huge kitchen and dining area. The band playing one of the nights was a great touch! Being able to just chill out and 'hire' a DVD was lovely during the day

          Every single floor squeaks like mad, which can be annoying when anyone is trying to be discrete when they get up in the morning. One of the showers were broken, the other barely warm. The luggage room was a bit dodgy, and smelt funny. Some of the staff helping didn't speak very good English.

          Free Internet, and the staff was extremely helpful. We had a problem to get to Dublin port in the early morning, and the guy at the reception called everyone for us and got us all the options.

          The showers were really small and dirty, and only 2 shower spots a floor (about 30 people). The kitchen was "complicated" and we needed assistance to use most of the electrical equipment there.

          It's close to O'Connell street and a walkable distance to Temple Bar.

          This hostel is OLD and GRUBBY. The carpet is so thin and worn that you can see the floorboards. The beds are cheap metal frames, so you feel every move from you bunk mates. No lockers in the room, so you can hope for the best by leaving your stuff there or drag it all the way back downstairs to lock up behind the front desk. There are also no elevators. The bathrooms were disgusting - you could smell the pee on the ground in the women's restroom and there is mold all over the showers. I also got a large insect bite on my ankle while I was sleeping. This whole place is supposedly under new ownership but needs to be completely renovated. There are better options in the city for the same price.
