I stayed here for two nights with my debating society from university. The rooms were spacious; our room had 12 beds with one toilet, two sinks and one shower. I suppose this arrangement was okay for us as we all knew each other, but if it had been strangers, it would've been a different story. Overall, the room was very clean, linen was fresh (though the pillows were wafer thin).
All doors are opened by keycard, which become void after midnight each night and need to be re-validated by reception.
A word of caution to those not familiar with Dublin: Talbot St and the surrounding area can be dangerous at night. I'd advise not walking alone at night.
