It's a very big hostel, with a decent size well equipped kitchen. Very close to city centre, lots of pubs in the vicinity and a carpark just in front of the hostel. Bunkbeds in dorms are amazingly sturdy and you don't actually feel when a person on the top/bottom bunk is turning and moving, which is quite rare. These were the advantages.
As we stayed in a non-ensuite dorm the disadvantages we discovered are - 1. the rooms are overcrowded, where there should be 3 bunkbeds they squeese 4, and if one of the guests decides to close the window, there will be no air left in the morning. 2. The biggest disadvantage - the toilets and showers. There isn't a sufficient number of toilets, sinks and showers per floor. For all these huge numbers of guests on a floor we managed to find only two sinks (one in gents washroom, one in ladies' washroom), so people were queueing to wash their teeth in the morning. And we found only four loos per floor, all toilets were getting badly blocked. We found only one toilet downstairs and it wasn't very clean. 3. Breakfast - they charge €3 extra for something what will be a complimentary (read nominal) breakfast in some other hostels in Ireland. Overall impression - we wanted to leave the place as soon as we could.
