Superb Location, Decent Hostel.
This is a hostel,not a hotel. That said, it appears to be quite cosy and welcoming if you are the laid back sort. A fantastic, fun atmosphere, very reasonably priced. You'll get to immerse yourself in Dublin's culture from this fantastic central spot. A minute's walk to plenty of sights and, of course, the Temple Bar is within a short stroll. There's a bus stop just adjacent on the route to the airport. Common areas are spacious, pleasant and kept surprisingly clean. Check-in and check-out times were reasonable. Guided tours of the city are plentiful, and many of the walking tours are free. The downstairs bar has musicians performing some nights who bring in a somewhat more mature crowd. There's a pool table and television in the social room with DVDs to watch. Breakfast is included too, if you like mostly cereals, breads, jams and tea.
