This was my second time in the hostel and I certainly loved it. The atmosphere is great the staff is superfriendly and honestly the breakfast (that is always included) is really nice, you have a good variety of things to eat/drink. There's a beautiful rooftop where you can have fun, hang out. No matter if you share a 12-10 room...

Make sure to note that this is a HOSTEL and not a hotel, so if you are not used to sharing your entire time here with other people with no privacy, this might not be you. Apart from the ridiculousnes of including just one bathroom in a 12-person dorm, everything is clean and orderly. The facilities are top notch, you...

This is a hostel. I was traveling with a group that had been in Northern Belfast and then traveled to Dublin for a couple days before returning to the U.S. This place is not in the "best" part of town but they are within a few blocks for pubs, shopping, and restaurants. Again it is a Hostel! Most of the...

I stayed in 3 different hostels in Dublin, 7 total in Ireland, and this was by far the best one. Staff was super friendly, the bests were comfy and private, the breakfast was good, and the common areas were great.
