Good 7.8 From 268 reviews

Good 6.0
Good size private room with bathroom
Our room had two twin bunk beds, 1 closet, desk, and an en suite bathroom. The bathroom and especially the shower didn’t look clean, but at least the water pressure was good. The breakfast included bread, cereal, and fruit. We liked that it was walking distance to Temple Bar area. Heads up, there is no elevator, so you need to walk up your luggage through the narrow stairs and hallways.

Dirty floors and smelly bathrooms
It was okay but the bathroom stunk and the floors were dirty.

Good 6.0
I was put in the room directly above the pub and it was loud. There was also an exit light that was quite bright by my bed. They were unable to switch me out of this room until Sunday. They do have free ear plugs in the lobby. They were very helpful explaining how to get the airport shuttle.

Great for the price
Excellent price & location. They had hair dryers you could borrow at the desk. They also had a charger that worked for my phone, which I was quite pleased about. They have 3 computers you can use in the lobby. I did wake each night when the pub downstairs closed.
