8/10 Very good

This is a huge hostel in a prime location, so you see all kinds of travellers. Despite the size, they only have one slow elevator, so it was very hard to catch it. They don’t store your luggage for you, so you have to pay to use the locker. Location was absolutely great, and the room for 6 people was a decent size. Friendly staff but the check-in process was too long—had to wait a very long time at 2 pm because everyone was checking in at the same time. No AC (like most European buildings), so we kept the window open the whole time.

2/10 Poor

Where do I start. The only good thing about this hostel is the location. Elevators- 1 and slow af. No comfortable areas indoors to sit. I dont think 2 chairs in the lobby constitutes comfy lounging. The patio is nice but closes at 10 so you're forced to endure the noise of the bar or sit in your room. Sometimes you dont want to be in either location. Housekeeping was awful. My friend stayed 5 nights and had her sheets changed the night before she checked out. What is the point of that? I stayed a week and had to do it myself because housekeeping didnt and I was sick and didnt want gross sick sheets. Also never washed the floor or swept. Ive worked housekeeping in suite hotels. Hostels are beyond easy to clean when youre not even making the bed. The lack of effort is abysmal. Music also excessively loud till 1/2am. I get its a hostel but have some consideration. Dublins generator loud music stops at 11. It's much more peaceful. People are paying to be able to sleep at some point. Overall, never again.
