“Rough”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2012

Pretty rough experience. Although a cheap hostel in Dublin, I've now stayed in a few and this was by far the worst so far. Loud idiots all night long, breakfast basic compared to others cheaper. Rooms were fine, clean floors at least. Staff on door pretty abrupt, wouldn't say it was the most welcoming of places in Dublin. Wouldn't really recommend.

This was a terrible hostel. For the price we paid for two people we could have stayed at a bed and breakfast and had a towel, hand soap, a mattress without a myriad of bodily fluid stains, a decent breakfast, and free parking. The only good thing about this hostel was that there were no bedbugs, which was quite frankly a surprise given the squalid condition of the room and its furnishings.
