After getting lost for nearly an hour, my group and I finally found the hostel! (lol)
You have to get buzzed in - so the security factor is good. And they give you these tickets that you have to show whenever you come in. Felt safe already.
We had a 12 bed room, but only 8 of us actually stayed there. I was worried at first, but the room was HUGE so don't have to worry about squeezing past people like I have seen in other hostels. Lots of space.
We had to share the bathroom with the room connected to us and there was about 16 beds in there (but not every bed was taken). So, the person/bathroom ratio was a bit high.
Windows were thin, we were away from the action of Dublin, but whenever (loud talking) people walked by it sounded like they were in the room with us, and for a moment we thought that the window was open!
In any case, bed was clean, pillows clean, mattress a bit thin, but overall the room was clean.
Free computer/internet/wifi access! woo-hoo!
Nice hang out area, my friends and I ended up watching 'Leap Year' - funny since it was filmed in Ireland - in the movie room in the basebent. you rented films from the front desk.
I'm not the kind of person to complain about free food, but maybe a bit more variety would be nice. All there was was bread, jam, and cereal. Not trying to complain but I have been to hostels where there a tad bit more variety than that. (Fruits, crossaints, etc). So the free breakfast is really my only complaint. :)
Overall, would recommend to others.
