          My friend and I stayed in an 8 bed dorm and loved it. The rooms were clean and the staff were very welcoming and helpful. The hostel is in a perfect location, close to restaurants, bars, shopping, and the waterfront.

          We stayed for two nights. The hostel parking situation was frustrating navigating having never been in Ireland. Great location. Good staff. Breakfast was ok, nothing special. Quite an ecliptic bunch staying at the hostel
