              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.

              Personal friendly and the ubication

              It could be more clean

            • Single
              5.4

              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!

            • Single
              6.6

              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.

            • Group of friends
              5.0

              24 hour desk and kitchen for everyone

            • Group of friends
              7.0

              difficult to get online in the room , always only can use wifi in the lobby

            • Couple
              7.4

              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)

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              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.

            • Family with children
              3.8

              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.
