          The beds were so comforatble and the linen very fresh, new and clean. The rooms are massive, plenty of room to move around in. The ensuites were large and always hot water. The staff were super friendly and very helpful with directions. Buffet continental breakfast was only 2.50 Euros and was perfect!! Rooms were quiet, you couldnt hear anything of the bar downstairs or from outside! The hostel is very secure by having card access only to the hostel itself and rooms. Highly recommended hostel!!

          There were many computers that were out of action so the line for computers to use the internet was a long one which was made worse by young children taking up computers to play games or people watching clips on You Tube!! I think the hostel should put up signs about the computer usage or limit the amount of time people can be on the computers. Those of us with our own laptops couldnt connect ot the wi fi for our entire stay. This need to be addressed!!

          everything!!!!!!!!!! Rooms are sooooo clean, bathroom also, staff is very, very nice, its perfect!! l would live there if l could!!

        • Group of friends
          9.2

          We payed 54 euros for two nights at this new hostel. It was amazingly fresh and really good value for the money. We stayed in a 2 bed ensuite room that had better standard than a budget hotel. There are big public areas downstairs with computers, wifi, pooltables and a large bar area. A basic but cheap breakfast is served for 2,50 euros until 11 in the mornings. It's a 15 minute walk to the center of downtown or five minutes by tram. I really don't have anything to complain about!

        • Family with children

          Funky and fun.

          No towels in the room and parking is tough.

        • Single
          9.2

          fantastic room, clean and I got what I paid for. Wanted to stay longer but there was no room on the day, staff were great in helping me find an alternative but it was no where near as good and was more expensive, plus I didn't get what I was promised when I arrived and they tried to charge me more. I was thankful generator did not do business that way

          The rooms doors closed too loudly, both the firedoors from the lift and individual room doors. Too many people came in and out of the firedoors so they did cause a nuisance and could be clearly heard by all room occupants. It can be stopped by putting sliding stoppers on the doors so they don't slam. Also directions to the place need to be clearer as I had trouble finding the place. Perhaps directing people from smithfield station rather than putting the address as smithfield sq might help?

        • Group of friends

          A chic and cool new hostel, just what Dublin needs. Every city should have one! My friends and I had an absolute ball and were pleasantly surprised by the quality of the hostel. Breakfast for €2.50 and reasonably priced alcohol sure what more would you want! Thanks to all the staff who were great!

          Very warm in the bedroom

        • Single
          9.2

          Very cheap but very modern hostel.

          Booked for three nights but the cleaners assumed I had left after two. Came back on the third day to find all my stuff gone from the room. Got it back though with many apologies.

        • Single
          9.2

          It was perfectly clean and all new. Staff was very nice and helpful. It is very close to the Dublin center.

          People in the room arrived one by one until late in the night so it was a bit difficult to sleep though.

        • Older travelers
          9.6

          We were pleasently suprised, very clean, freindly helpful staff, excellent facilities and quiet on a night, I would highly recommend this hostel.

          It was very clean.

          lack of heat, wash cloths, soap and shampoo and customer care.

          7.4

          Very good location in the centre of Dublin for a good price.

          I requested a 1 person room, instead I was given a 4 person room to myself. I did not enjoy sleeping in a bunkbed even though the bed was clean and comfortable enough.

        • Couple
