    Just a few minutes walk from all major attractions, pubs, museums, shopping establishments, etc. The hostel is great for travelers, students and alike. Airport bus is just a second away and hence makes everything easier.

    Stayed there with one other person in a private queen room. Not huge by any means, but big enough. Nice for a "hostel." Clean and perfect location near all of the action in Temple Bar. If only staying for a short time, great spot.

    There's a free locker under each bed. I would recommend a small padlock. Have a nice stay!
