The only bad thing about this hostel is the bathrooms. Although they are clean, there are no doors!
Easy to get to, quiet & very close to Bus Aras
1. Asked for photo ID on arrival but neither the booking confirmation e-mail or the hostels page on Booked.net mentioned anything about this being a requirement 2. Tried to shower each morning only for the water to be stone cold, not a pleasant way to be having a wash
good staff, good position good services
The staff were friendly and efficient, The fee to the the web was a bit steep i.e 1 euro for 20 minutes so I used the internet cafe down the road 1 euro for 1 hour. The room itself was clean expect from the stained matteress that was above me on the bunk bed. I would suggest actually putting a door in the entrace of the ladies shower room as it only had a curtain although I accept that the showers had doors themselves. All in all not a bad place to stay, very central to the city centre.
The stained matteress above me on my bunk bed. Also the tea was very weak so I had to use extra teabags to have a decent cup of tea
Super friendly staff. Very convenient location if you go to Dublin for tourist visit: besides the bus station, really close to train station and 10 mins walking to city centre.
Really expensive with no extra value (fair breakfast, no towels provided, tiny bedroom, shared toilet, ...)
great atmosohere all the needed facilities needed are given
had problem with my room key/lock and the crew could not help me
It was close to everything and it was a great chance to meet new people and differernt cultures, and nationalitys. The staff were frienly and the facilitys were good. The wreck room upstairs was really cool...there was a pool table and a massive T.V. painted on the wall that with the use of a projector would display movies. Would definately stay again and my sister and a group of her friends are going to dublin in january and I have recommened them to stay there.
On my last night I was literly kept up all night by a gentleman snorning in the bed across from me, I know there isnt much that can be done about this but thats what I didnt like. But thats a sacrafise that is made when going to a hostel. Also for breakfast they didnt really explain how it worked, they gave you the times but when you get down there you are supplied with juice, toast and cornflakes, but they dont tell you if you have to cook an egg for yourself or will the staff do it or if you can get anything of that kind at all.
Even though we paid more for a private room the value was not good.Still had to share bathroom with everyone which almost always meant not having a shower when you wanted to and the shower was always cold. Room not worth the price we paid. Very loud being next to rail line.
For that price is good accommodation and service.
The internet connectivity was not stable.
Proximity to bus station and city center.
Thin walls. Could hear noise from the other rooms.
We liked the cleanliness of the hostel and the location.
The internet was really crappy and the walls were so very thin.
V.little room between breakfast tables
International groups, cozy atmosphere.
Location - very close to airport busses and O'Connell St.
Breakfast wasn't very good, very crowded. Thin walls.
I liked the group atmosphere, a community gathering place for travelers, and the fact that they had evening get-togethers for guests. It did get noisy but for the mostly young people, that was fine.
A few inconsiderate guests, but that could be anywhere.
