    Loved the location. Room was a bit too small and breakfast wasn't the best either. Orange juice tasted weird. Wish I could have smoked on the balcony since I requested a smoking room!! Not really value for money because of the room size and breakfast.

    Great hostel. Perfect location slap bang in the middle of Temple Bar. Front staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Hostel very clean and secure. Entrance is locked through the night with security on to let any stragglers in! Ideal place to explore Dublin from.

    I was told the iron was not returned by one guest and no coat hanging facilities in the rooms. Having stayed at other hostels like Abbeycourt, I think the standard is below that of Abbeycouurt. I hope I will find improvements next time.
