't stayed in a private en-suite bedroom for three nights. Room wasn't particularly clean or cosy, but that's to be expected. However, we paid 140 euros for three nights and were deeply disappointed with the service. Throughout our stay we never had access to hot water or wifi in our bedroom. We reported the lack of hot water every morning...

Very nice hostel, close to the city centre in a nice neighbourhood. Very comfortable rooms and beds with enough privacy. Also has private rooms for couples which were very nice. Clean hostel with helpful people. Breakfast is basic but good. Room could have had a little more furniture. Really enjoyed our stay!

We stayed for three nights in a four-bed private room with bathroom. It was very comfortable and clean, and a good size for the four of us. The shared kitchen and toilet in the basement were always clean, and the stuff took care of washing all the plates and mugs in the dishwasher, so the guests didn't have to worry...

In regards to a hostel, it is your average room - 3 beds, a bathroom, etc. But unfortunately when we got there, construction was happening on the first floor. And wouldn't you have it, our room just happened to be on the first floor. The construction was on the doors in the lobby as well as the room next door....

We stayed for two nights in a double room. The room was small but comfortable and clean and absolutely suitable for a city trip. If you want to hang out at the hostel, they have two comfortable common rooms. Breakfast was way better than what you normally get in hostels. Moreover the hostel was quiet and staff was friendly. Location...

Had a bed in 8 bed dorm (female one) with my friend. Probably wouldn't like it alone but it was pretty nice,just not for people who want their own privacy. It was very close to the center of Dublin and very cheap with included breakfast!

We stayed in private ensuite double rooms over new year. The rooms cost about £55 per night. They were basic and not the cleanest, a women with long dark hair clearly stayed in the room before me. The walls between the rooms are very thin and everything can be heard! We stayed on the top floor and the Wifi didn't...

Cleanliness was alright in this hostel and also it was quiet which was a plus. Despite this, there was a bad security in the hostel. Website contains false info about the availability of security lockers. In contrast to the info there are no security lockers in the dorms, and a a consequence clothes of mine got stolen from the dorm....

I stayed here for three nights recently and I think it's a bit too expensive for what it offers: the rooms where overall clean but I found hairs on the bed linens and there was no toilet paper in the bathroom. The service was not great, as the window in my room wouldn't open and the personel never came to...

We stayed in a double room with private ensuite for two nights. The room and bathroom were small, clean and comfortable - what you would expect for a hostel. Our room looked out onto the outside area which was nice (it could be noisy if people were outside but noone used it while we were there). It was an easy...
