Only my 2nd time in a hostel. Stayed in a 4 person room was clean with private bath. really cool place in great location. Staff really friendly. Was an old recording studio U2 and others recorded all the hits in. Really clean, Cool vibe environment!!!

Had no issues staying here. Rooms were decently sized, everything was clean, staff were friendly. As others noted, awesome location to begin your day in Dublin. I really liked this place. The fellow travelers seemed nice as well.

Stayed here 3 nights while travelling around Dublin. Hostel is centrally located to pretty much every major attraction in Dublin. Rooms, common room and kitchen were really clean and beds made everyday. All beds had a power point, USB port and light. The staff was very friendly and helpful in suggesting what to do. However the beds could be more comfortable. However, The mattress and pillow were really thin and not great for a good nights sleep. Overall, I'd stay here again though.

This has to be the cleanest hostel I've stayed in. Everything from the dorms to the kitchen were squeaky clean each day. Reception was friendly and had no problem printing my boarding pass for me. Book direct through their website so you get breakfast free instead of having to pay 3 euros each morning. It's a little pricey for a hostel though. I understand Dublin is expensive, but I don't think a lot of backpackers could afford to stay here if they are on too tight a budget. There were also wifi issues for 2 days, which weren't fixed by the time I checked out, so I had to leave my room and find a store with free wifi in order to check in to my flight. The location is unbeatable though. I loved being steps away from the Liffey and O'Connell St. I could get everywhere I needed to go on foot. This hostel also attracts a nice crowd of guests. Overall I would stay here again next time I'm in Dublin

I only stayed here one night. I arrived late, the girl at reception was was very nice, friendly and helpful. The lounge and kitchen area were spotless as were my room and bathroom. The location is great, just a few steps from the air coach stop and o Connell Street. I would stay here again.

So many Hostels offer free breakfast, free wifi etc. this hostel has this and so much more. from the moment of check in till the time to leave they are such a positive time. I was introduced to the hostel by a friend from Germany. i got to hang out in the common room even though i was in another hostel. they were welcoming and the social area was wonderful. i thought it was just a lucky time there. However on my way back to dublin i stayed there. These guys just know how to create an atmosphere that other hostels don't have. Whatever the million dollar question is, you guys have the answer... Thanks so much for a great experience. i would only stay here on my next trip thru.... Ciao

Great hostel! The staff was super friendly, the facilities clean and the atmosphere good. I booked a mixed shared room for four people and it had a private bath for circa 20 euros per night. The hostel was also conveniently located to most tourist attractions. Would definitely stay here again!

We had a group of 17 people staying for 2 nights and were treated well. The luggage room is a little small for such a large group (who also traveled with some suitcases that were silly large!) but the staff was kind and helpful. The location is perfect to public transportation and the city centre.

Had a great stay here- the air coach drops you off on O'Connell street and it's roughly a 5 min walk from there and close to the ha'penny bridge. Excellent location and the breakfast was so good as well! For only €3 so I certainly recommend. Alan was our tour guide and he was great (thanks Alan!). It's next to a bar so quite noisy at night but you don't choose Dublin to relax ;) thanks to all the staff for helping us have a great stay!!

I stayed with two other friends on a Thursday night in the 6 bed female dorm. It was clean and great value for money at around €54 for all three of us. The staff were helpful and the location was brilliant (so central). There were some free beers in the common room that night and other travelers seemed friendly and helpful. The reception was 24hr which was extremely helpful and definitely gave a good sense of security. I would happily stay again.
