I only give this a star because I have to
This place is disgusting. The moldings on the floor were caked with grime, the bathrooms had no soap & my 3 friends and I's "clean" sheets had hair on them. There is also no security, they do not ID people who come in after hours & multiple strangers approached our door. Even more alarming, they allowed an older local man to stay in a room full of girls in their early 20s; why does a guy who apparently lives in the area need to stay in a hostel by himself if he's not up to something weird? After convincing the drunkest girl in the room to leave with him alone one night, he quickly and suspiciously checked out the following morning. Absolutely no reason that he should have ever been allowed to bunk with them in the first place, or even let a bed at all. I was really unsettled by my experience here & would caution anyone against staying somewhere that's so lax about guest security/safety.

Good experience, I'll come back for sure
I've been here couple of times and I could spend good time. The Hostel is in the centre of temple bar, is also clean and have a friendly staff. The price is ok and the pub downstairs is one of the oldest.

Nice but noisy
A nice place to stay for the night if you are in town. Unfortunately it can be a bit noisy as it is in the Temple Bar area but overall around average.

Great location but very noisy!
Temple Bar is in the heart of Dublin and it is fun to be around. The problem is noise. If you are tired and want to sleep, it is hard to sleep just 2 floors above an Irish bar.

Not like we expected
first of all we didnt knew what the temple bar area was in dublin, turns out, its a great place to get drunk and drink from 19:00 hours and after that you'll see mostly drunk people on the street and lots and lots of noise. which brings us to the hostel room, yes you hear a lot of noise when you are in the room!!! We booked a twin room as a couple and got a small closet-like room with bunk and top bed. The breakfast was ok, but the self-catering kitchen dark, small, and not enjoyable. Staff was alright. Wouldn't go there again.
