The location was great, within walking distance of all major points of interest such as Trinity College and the National Gallery.
The beds and pillows were hard. The noise levels from the pub nearby where insoportable at times, we did not go to sleep until 4 am when it finally quiet down. The breakfast was passable, consisting of toast, eggs, and cheese along with coffee. We paid for a private room with shower and our shower stopped working on the second night. Their resolution was to give us a key to the common bathrooms which were disgusting and when we asked for a discount on our stay we were told it could not be given because it was a “technical problem”. We wont be staying here again and if you are considering doing so, spend a little more money and stay elsewhere.
Prices can be a little more economical considering the rooms are not too spacious.
The room and the bathroom was really very clear. The bed was really good. You can drop off your luggage if you come before your check in. The hostel is situated in the heart of Temple Bar
The noise from the street - so in this case location can be consider not so cool. I stayed in the 10-Bed Dormitory Room and we had only 2 sockets, so you need to wait to charge your phone.
The hostel provides good breakfast and the location is very convenient
The room is too small, we booked a 4 people room but we are only a group of three. The room is too small that there is only 1 chair! And no space for us to sit and rest in the room except you lie down on your bed. And the washroom only provides 2 towels.... Well, I think they should provide at least 4 since we paid for 4 people, the staff is so nice that he changed the towel for us, but only once. But these are only small problems I think, when you pay for such low price, you expect these may happen. But I think the main problem is the noise from the street. We can sleep very well every night because of the bars and pubs downstairs.... Anyway, noisy problem is not fault of the hostel. Thank you for the hell of the nice staff!
Great spot. So cheap. I loved my stay here. Breakfast was delicious too and the soup available all day was delicious. It couldnt be in a more perfect location too right in the middle of the lively bars.
Could be more happening in the common areas or some interactive stuff if I was to be harsh.
