    Very well located, everything is within walking distance. Free breakfast is nice. Rooms were very small and bathrooms and toilets (ensuite and in the hallway) a bit dirty. Waterpressure was so strong it really hurr to shower.

    Simple, but functional. Minor problem with hot water was solved straight away). Friendly atmosphere, nice Staff, good security. A bit noisy as it's in the middle of Temple Bar, so take your earplugs:) Good coffee machine which is a rare thing in hostels:)

    Group of nine in a eleven bed room with private bathroom. All we needed! Great location, nice staff, correct breakfast. Just to mention, noisy at late (but understandable for the location) and only one public shower. We would stay again for sure.

    The position was perfect (in the heart of Temple Bar) and price was very good (25 Euro for a Saturday night). The only "problem" was that, since the hostel is in Temple Bar, we couldn't sleep much during the night due to people too loud...More
