                  Nice atmosphere, clean en enough toilets

                  I ordered a room with private bathroom via Booked.net. We received a small room without bathroom. I don't mind sharing a bathroom but 60 euro is to expensive for a simple room without bathroom. You can book an hotel room with toilet/bathroom in Dublin for the same price.

                • Single
                  8.2

                  - Plenty of stuff which is necessary to have at a hotel but a pain in the ass to travel with was available at the reception - towels, adapters, hair-dryers, etc. - Aircoach service: buses going to the airport stop at the hostel every hour. - Breakfasts: essential and substantial. - Free Wi-Fi, city guides and other brochures. - No curfew.

                  location

                  we were unfortunate to encounter a rude and mocking staff member. such a shame, as all other members of staff were very friendly and helpful.

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  Very nice staff and a lot of specials from the hotel. Dont buy anything in tourism office. they have everything at far lower rates.

                • Group of friends
                  7.8

                  The location made it excellent for exploring Dublin city centre during the day and the nightlife

                  The bathrooms could do with some modernising.

                  7.4

                  advice from staff about where to go/visit

                  bathroom facilities could be better

                  the location.

                  place is pretty run down. ordered a private room, no towels in room, staff didn't like being asked for towels, and acted suspicously before handing them over!

                  it was quite central to the city,staff very friendly,and reasonably quiet for the location.

                  it was advertised as a hotel.its not,its a hostel,and the booking out time of 10 o clock is just to early and very inconvenient,11 or 12 would be more appropriate.

                  The hotel is an easy walk from Dublin's major sights, and has great facilities (free internet, free breakfast, self catered kitchen, refund airport transfers)

                  It was well located on Camden Street with easy access to the city centre. The room was small and basic but it suited just fine for the night.

                  no cleaning of the room at all, rooms are degraded, no possibility to move around the room (even a triple room is too small), no change of the towels, dirty floor, they only empty baskets.
