Great location, maybe too great”

The location is great, just above the temple bar, which means everything is near and you are in the middle of the action, even when you want to sleep ;) The staff was very friendly. For this price I hoped for a better room and I guess those are the prices in Dublin during the summer.

Location, service, price.

Good place to stay when in Dublin (for a gig, theatre), wouldn't stay for more that one night though. The street cleaning machines are out 2am-4am and it is impossible to sleep with the window open in summer. We are regular customers though and will be back.

people i got to meet, location and price

I would say it was great. I had great roommates like everyone is so friendly in Dublin. Definitely bring your stuff though as you would in other hostels (bring lock, towel, shampoo and stuff, adapters, etc.) that way you don't have to rent them. But I loved it here and I would stay again. Even my second stay there with a bunch of spanish guys as roommates they were cool too.

Good hostel”

It was a good experience staying there. My roommates were really great and the staff was very helpful. The location is excellent as well. Issues were running out of hot water. Like one morning we had to all shower and the water was frigidly cold...like hypothermia inducing cold. I guess everyone had used up the hot water but it was checkout time so it was tough when 6of us all needed a shower and had to not take one or deal with seriously cold water. Our shower door was also broken. And there is no adjustable shower head so you have to get in and turn the cold water directly on you until it warms up. Also I think the layout it is not as much for a community of people. There is common area on one floor but still not really big enough for every one. I would stay there again though.

Fantastic gem of a hostel”

Incredibly convenient location yet still quiet, super CLEAN, nice staff, great ambiance, no curfew, free computer use and free printing, better breakfast than most hostels! Also the option to have communal dinner with fellow travelers, which is nice. The pub downstairs gives a discount and their curry and stew are tasty and hearty portions. A good value. Only thing I'd improve upon is having more female-only dorms. Also, there's no lift and you have to walk a flight of stair to enter, so that might be important to know for some.

Compared with other hostels, here is little expensive whereas the facilities need to be improved. 001~003 base dormitory rooms are little damped and in a tightness. Two-floor beds are little short to tall men. Other facilities such as bathroom, toilets, restaurant and restrooms are good.
