Very good

I booked this place last minute and thankfully that caused no issues. I got a good sleep and was glad of the good kitchen and common area. Unfortunately the wifi didn't work in my room. I've stayed here before and there were no surprises, only the wifi.

My favourite Dublin hostel

I feel you get a lot for what you pay. You get a nice clean bed obviously but there's more. There is a kitted out kitchen which even has a free food fridge and box. Free tea, coffee and hot chocolate 24/7. A nice seating area and friendly staff.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Bring your own food and cook it there. The food in Dublin is far to expensive for its own good! Buy food I. Tesco, cook it in the hostel and use the money instead to go for a coffee somewhere.

Noisy! Lumpy, uncomfy mattresses

It was in a great location, walkable to everything in Dublin. It was clean and the staff were helpful and friendly. But the common rooms become drinking parties at night, where "20 somethings" drink themselves silly and make loads of noise. The common area is impossible to sit and read in or work on your computer once the nightly drinking starts. Empty beer bottles and cans everywhere! Moreover, it is extremely noisy outside, because hoards of drunks from the nearby bars pass by the hostel windows all night long drunk, screaming, fighting, singing. The mattresses are flat and lumpy. I had springs sticking in my ribs all night. I didn't get a wink of sleep the two days I stayed at this hostel, but chose to stay because the price was right and the location was great. Good hot water, but you have to pay extra for breakfast and a towel. The website is misleading because it says there is free pancake breakfast on the weekends (which is why I chose this place) but that is not true. The hostel needs to update its website.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Go to a play at the Abbey Theater or The Gaity Theater. Fabulous and relatively inexpensive by US standards...
