I spent the weekend here with 5 friends , it was fantastic value for money and a great location , we shared a room with three bunk beds it was a little small but had everything we needed , we had six seperate key cards , and the staff on the front desk were really helpfull and friendly

Room Tip: We asked for a room with a balcony and they changed our room to meet with our request

the hostel was clean both room and bathroom clean. All bathrooms are ensuite. Didn't really get a very social feel here, as the common room and kitchen were on separate floors, not many people hanging out in either whenever we went in them. Front desk staff was very helpful. Only complaint was the cleaning person kept leaving the windows open in the room and bathroom during the day when they would come in to clean! This led to a freezing cold room whenever we would come back! It's dublin in January, close the windows!

Three of us stayed here just before Christmas to attend attend a concert and we were pleasantly surprised. A 10minute walk from the bus station and we were right in the heart of Temple Bar. The hostel is right in the thick of it but we had a quiets night stay and the receptionist was very welcoming. We had a private room with four beds and a private bath on the top floor which was warm and comfortable. There is free Wi-Fi in the kitchen area but we were just there for the night. Would recommend for short stays again.
