Way beyond any expectations

I did not expect anything but a clean bed for £11 p/night in shared room. Well, my first impressions were very positive: reception area is very modern, clean and good looking. The same can be said about corridors and rooms including bathroom (shared IN room; not in corridor). The only thing that made me worried was safety of personal belongings like laptop and cell phone. Chest under my bed did the job however, a lock was needed (bought at reception for 5 EUR) to secure it. Given the hostel nature it was a bit noisy at night especially when your roommates arrive/leave at different times of night/day which was very annoying, indeed. But apart of that it is really good place to stay at when you plan budget trip to Dublin like I did. This would suit young travelers/students Unsuitable for businessmen/women & families

very nice place, friendly helpful

very nice place, friendly helpful and modern. The reception desk I found is not overly friendly and a bit too casual but asides from that I would highly reccommend this place to stay. People who wear the passes around their necks are not staff - they are guests who choose to wear their passes around their necks. Be careful with that.
