Hard to find when it's raining and your data doesn't work in Dublin... staff kind of indifferent but the room was fine. One bathroom (with the only toilet) per floor seems less than adequate. Having to change the wifi network on each floor was a little annoying. Breakfast was fine even if the hot water heater was not working and they couldn't even come up with a kettle to replace it with.

Pros: - staff are amazing; super friendly and kind - great wifi, patio, and even has a small complimentary breakfast - quick walk right into the city centre Cons: - bit of a sketchy location which makes getting back in the evening a little dodgy - very loud at night outside which keeps guests awake (garbage trucks at early hours in the morning) - the door handles to the rooms are super squeaky so good luck sleeping through anyone coming in/out throughout the evening This is a no-frills experience but was great for my staying solo in Dublin for a few nights. The worst part about the stay was the people in the hostel, that just didn't seem to have respect for those around them. Countless times I saw people eating food that wasn't theirs, guests that would talk to each other in the morning in the dorms even though others were trying to sleep, even spraying perfume in the rooms as they were getting ready. These are shared spaces! Seems like this hostel attracts younger folks (maybe because of the great price!) but just a note on hostel etiquette may go a long way with the first-timers.

It was a great experience! The place is very clean and the staff is super-friendly. Plus the location is within walking distance of the Guinness Storehouse, St Patrick's Cathedral and the Temple Bar area. Highly Recommended!
