The staff offered tremendously good service. The staff found me a heater as I like my room warmer than most. The only drawback is it can be a little noisy, especially on the weekend. I highly recommend this hostel.

Mermaid Man: Barnacle Boy, don't squash his enthusiasm. After all, he could be the superhero of tomorrow... or the villain. Besides, I remember a certain young whippersnapper who wanted to be a superhero, too. Barnacle Boy: You don't even remember breakfast, you old coot.

It's the second time I stay there. Great location (next to temple bar, a couple of blocks from city centre), friendly staff and good breakfast (coffee, tea, juice, cereals, toasts, etc). The bed is comfortable.

The hostel was good for it's price and location, but the rooms and hallways should be updated. The rooms are pretty small, especially the 8 bed dorm rooms and the bathrooms, again, should be considered being updated. Overall, fine hostel for a short stay.

The room and bathroom were very clean, the braekfast didnt have too much options, only had bread, cereals, coffee and Joice, but it was ok. The staff is very helpful. We stayed at a six people mixed room.

Great hostel, great location, great pub crawl!!! As soon as we walked in the staff were helpful and friendly. Facilities are great and the showers were too!! Right in the heart of temple bar you can't get any more than in the heart of the action. Would recommend to any young traveler looking to have a good time

perfect location, literally 20 mtrs from Temple Bar! probably not the best for families, due to the noise. Bin wagons woke everyone up around 7am trying to fit up the itny streets of Dublin and also drunken people shouting through the street. Our room was clean and the staff were nice. really good airport transfer, 60euro return.

There was no control at all during the night. There was no enforcement of respect for those trying to sleep. Continuous shouting, knocking on doors. I don't mind people having fun, but a minimum of respect for other should be managed by the hostel staff. Room conditions, breakfast et all were adequate.

Thank you for taking the time to review our hostel. We are sorry to read that you couldn't sleep. Our night porters and staff do ask all guests to keep noise to a minimum and to respect other hostel guests. On this occasion it would appear that our staff did not do enough and for this we apologise. We hope...

Brilliant staff, perfect location. Temple bar 30 sec distance, best place if you re in Dublin to hang out. Not spotless but not even dirty. Nice and essential breakfast but cool atmosphere. Anyway hairdryer was never available though.

The desk receptionists were fun, helpful, and went out of their way to make this a post ice experience for all their guests. The cleanliness of the hostel exceeded my expectations! Overall it was great
