The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the building itself was very clean and colourful. A decent night's sleep despite being in the centre and breakfast was simple but...

We stayed here for four nights towards the end of our holiday in Ireland and absolutely loved it.

Room was 86 degrees Fahrenheit and made it unbearable to sleep. Body odor was horrendous. Hostel itself was clean, modern and the staff were great. Windows only open a few inches so no relief. I'm soaked in sweat as I write this.

There were 4 of us (girls) checked in to this hostel for a weekend away. The hostel was in a central location (10 minute walk) to the pubs clubs and shops. The rooms were spacious, clean and safe. Overnight parking was offered at special guest rate.
