We chose this apartment based on recent reviews. We stayed in the rooftop apartment #1 and felt we got very poor value for money. The reviews we looked at prior to booking have now led me to believe that this complex of apartments and hostel has changed ownership, for the worst. It is very rarely that I write a review...

The place was adequate. The room was clean. The bathroom sucked and wasn't cleaned in the 2 days we stayed. The price was great. The location was great. The breakfast was not very good. The Wi-Fi sucked.

Visited at easter time. The beer was cold and tasty and the meal was great value ..we had some sandwiches and a cheese selection which was huge. At night the place was buzzing with great live music and some Irish dancing to boot. We had a ball

I arrived at midnight and my room wasn't ready, there were some underwear and dirty towels on the floor of the bathroom and the room was suposed empty. I was fortunately moved to another room, but it was even dirtier and older than the other one. The heating doesn't work so in the middle of the night you wake up...

Not really that much to say about the place as we only stayed for one night. Met by the most miserable guy on reception, filthy room,bathroom stank, we booked a private room only to find a man trying to key open our door...told reception who couldn't have cared less. People say you get what you pay for with hostels, but...

Hm couldn't tell if the reception was good or bad, but I LOVED the hostel in itself. It is obviously very well located in the middle of Temple Bar, and the mood there is just great (loved the stairs, corridors and roof). Well my dormitory and especially the bathroom were dirty but maybe it was because of the people I...

I spent christmas in Dublin and did not expect it to be a ghost town, at all. Everything was closed , and Temple Bar even closed super early on Christmas eve. But this hostel was pretty good. They gave out complimentary wine and beer and they have a kitchen (which wasn't exactly the cleanest but that's okay). The rooms are...

I stayed during 3 nigths in the hostel no november, The room was cold and there was no concern about turning on the heating before the guests arriving. Although the information posted on the wall informing that we could ask for extra blankets, there were no blankets in stock. After a long waiting, they gave an extra blanket to each...

This was a girls weekend, cheap and cheerful. You get what you pay for, a roof over your head and a clean bed. It's in a great location. We had the apartments which had a kitchen, which was useful. No complaints. Not luxury but clean.

Was a bit nervous after reading reviews but all worked out pretty nicely. We arrived early and were able to store luggage at the desk. Shannon was amazingly helpful and provided us with food and drink recommendations and maps of the city. The room itself - we had a private room w a shared bathroom - was a bit chilly,...
