If your after comfort, quiet and privacy then this hostel isn't for you. If your after somewhere clean to throw your bag in and kip for the night with a nice warm shower the next morning this is the place to go. Right next to millions of bars in the heart of Temple Bar ya can't go wrong with it for a quick 1 or 2 nights stay. Cheap and cheerful

Toilet is a bit dirty. Facility for luggage storage on your last day, when u need is most, is not available at all. Request for a bottom bunk bed was not accomodated although the room I occupied had a bottom bunk bed available.

Great location!

Day staff were great but myself and three other guests got locked out at night for quite a while and the night guy claimed to be cleaning but who cleans and what do they clean for that long at 3 am? Also it says some things are provided on the website and also hanging all over signs in hostel but that wasn't true. Didn't bother me much but they need to update what they claim provide ie laundry facility, locks, adapters. Other than that, spectacular location and day staff were awesome. Will be back.

In the heart of Temple bar

Booked a private room with ensuite for four people. Great area for food, pubs and nightlife. Live music in many pubs to choose from. Room was comfortable. Bunk beds and good amount of space. No lift. 24 hr concierge. Clean. Free wifi worked well.

Good value for location

Not the nicest place I've stayed, far from it in fact but when you consider the price (16 Euro) for Temble Bar, you get what you pay for. Its backpacking at its best. Head down on a cheap bed to sleep off the beer. Very few sockets in the room, and cleanliness leaf alot to be desired but for the price of 2 pints in Temple Bar, its worth staying and spending your savings on a good night out!!

Whilst the beds were comfortable and the area was perfect the hostel was not amazing. Considering it was above what looked like the biggest bar in temple bar and an expensive bar at that, the room was pitiful. A room of ten had 4 plugs, not four outlets, but literally four points to plug in chargers. As you can imagine this left myself sparingly taking photos and praying to god I didn't lose anyone and have to waste my battery to find them. Furthermore, whilst the shower was very good, come the last day the light in the bathroom was flickering quite badly, wasn't ideal. However, the service in the hotel and the amount of food on offer for breakfast (although there wasn't any pastries like in many continental breakfasts) were impeccable, if the power point problem was fixed I would consider staying again.
