There's nothing to like
Lockers, facilities and general decor.
When room is half full spread the bodies so to speak
Each bed has an individual plug socket and ambient lighting. And the blonde girl who was cleaning the rooms was totally lovely!!
The guys who were on when I arrived were nice, but the blonde girl on reception during daytime was unpleasant and had no regard for the virus. When I checked in, I rented a towel, and was told I could change it for free each day for hygiene reasons. When I went to change it, the blonde girl changed it reluctantly and was rude, saying they shouldn't have told me that and I should have to pay. She spent the rest of the morning loudly complaining about having to mop the floor cos the mop was too small... I had requested to be in a room with as few other people as possible due to the situation (conscious of course that beggars can't be choosers). Another staff member told me that in the hostel, with 5 floors and 10 if not 20 rooms per floor, they were only expecting about 15 or 20 people. And yet they'd packed 4 people into my little room, bringing it to 60% capacity, which seems beyond stupid when people are being instructed to isolate as much as possible. Furthermore, there's no kitchen, and not even somewhere for guests to store food. No food is allowed in the rooms and if you bring it in, you're expected to take it down to the basement - an ugly underground area with no natural light and a scattering of mismatched chairs and tables. You can purchase food on their restaurant for €10-€15. Their "common area" is the hostel lobby and a cafe, where you feel awkward to sit unless you buy something. There's nowhere to fill up water bottles as there's no space to fill them in the shallow bathroom sinks. You can purchase a bottle of water for €2.20. Laundry is another €7. This is not a place for budget travellers, but clearly also not a place for people wanting luxury, and the lack of regard for hygiene and rudeness of the receptionist was really concerning. The wifi made me re-validate my email every time I logged on, otherwise I'd get kicked off it. The area seemed quite unsafe.
Nice facility, manageable location but for a particular type of travel
The facilities are modern and relatively clean. Rooms are well maintained and mattresses are pretty comfortable. The bar area is nice and live music is a plus. Building and rooms are also secure. Swipe cards are required to go anywhere and there’s security at the door.
Upon arrival, the staff was more concerned with being cool than with being courteous. Morning staff was much better. What rubbed me the wrong way about this place is that they fail to provide any kind of secure storage for even the smallest of items. There are lock boxes under the beds, but require you bring your own padlock or pay a ridiculous amount of money to use the luggage storage in the basement. Plan ahead or snuggle your valuables. Also, no outside food is allowed. Strange for a hostel. The reason given is that plenty of food is available on site for purchase. Most things on the menu were expensive for a backpacker. The restaurants and supermarket across the way are the best options. Also, the provided shower gel dispenser is always empty and make sure you double check the toilet paper before you sit down. This place clearly has its eye on being trendy to attract the young, party crowd. It’s nothing similar to what backpackers are used to from every other hostel on the planet and fails to provide the community experience and chance to meet new people that solo travelers look for. Considering the price isn’t even on the lower end, there are better places in Dublin.
