In a room of 6, it lacks a bench or stools, or even a table, as well as shelves, and towel doors in the bathroom. Lack of written information in the dining room for breakfast.
Dans une chambre de 6, il manque un banc ou des tabourets, voire une table, ainsi que des étagères, et des portes serviettes dans la salle de bain. Manque d'informations écrites dans la salle de restauration pour les petits déjeuners.
The focus was on the design of the lobby and bar. the wifi is of good quality. Very good. The rest is disappointing: unfriendly staff, loud music constantly in the lobby (to make young and trendy probably), noisy hostel (1 window of the room overlooked a patio occupied by people from the bar until late at night) , no hook in the room (where do we hang his clothes), locker under the bed for his business very difficult to access because the bed was in an angle, etc ... I recommend only for those who want to do the party !
L'accent a été mis sur le design du hall d'accueil et du bar. le wifi est de bonne qualité.Très bien. Le reste est décevant : personnel peu aimable, musique forte en permanence dans le hall (pour faire jeune et branché sans doute), auberge bruyante (1 fenêtre de la chambre donnait sur un patio occupé par des personnes du bar jusque tard dans la nuit), aucune patère dans la chambre (où accroche-t-on ses vêtements), casier sous le lit pour ses affaires très difficile d’accès car le lit était dans un angle, etc... Je ne recommande que pour ceux qui veulent faire la fête !
Really kind staff, always there if you nees any help. Dormrooms clean and very well equipied. Sanitary very clean also and their amount is more than enough for all the people hosted there. My trip in Dublin was a success partly thanks to this hostel!
Para mi la parte nueva me encanto. Perfecto todo.
Disappointed by the showers ... No bath mat and full of hair on the floor ... We must make the bed, it surprised me but it is not a problem.
Déçue par les douches... Pas de tapis de bain et plein de cheveux par terre... On doit faire le lit, cela m'a surpris mais ce n'est pas un problème.
