Good, get bit extra than expected considering pri
Great social areas and breakfast (few cereal options, toast, juice, hot drinks all the time) went far. Easy location to walk to main attractions.

You get what you pay for
I went for a 3 night stay at the hostel with my friend, the two of us were in a shared dorm of 3 bunk beds. The standards of cleanliness were not brilliant; the floors were dirty, in particular under the beds had clearly not been cleaned in a while as we stored our luggage under there out of the way, and when we removed them they were covered in dust and hairs. There were miscellaneous stains on the walls and the mattreseses - especially unsettling was the top bunk to which was blood stained all over! Every time you walked past our toilet and shower area there was a smell of damp/sewage. The beds themselves were very uncomfortable; you were only supplied with one, very thin pillow however as the rooms were uncomfortably warm I was able to use my duvet and fashion into a second pillow! Suffice to say you do not get an excellent nights sleep. The key cards for door entry were a constant issue, having to return to the front desk a few times as they kept deciding not to work so we could not get in. Breakfast was a little lack lustre, although I understand is provided as a cheap and cheerful part of the service - only bread/toast and cereal on offer. Could the budget possibly stretch to some fruit? And we understand it may be considered early to some; but staff manning breakfast always looked miserable! The hostels only redeeming features were the front desk staff! Very knowledgeable and always happy to help, nothing was too much trouble! And the location of the hostel itself!

Lovely staff
It was a nice place to stay location wise, just a couple minutes walk to the heart of Dublin. Unfortunately the other people in our room were not so great, they were up til all hours of the night drinking and listening to loud music. They left bags and bags of rubbish all over the room including my bed when I was out. The bathroom facilities need some improvement, the showers were cold and just felt dirty. The staff were helpful and lovely.

awkward start but great trip and perfect location.
My mother and I had a girls weekend and had a great time.the apartment building is lovely and in a very good location for walking around Oslo. The only thing is that you collect your key about 15mins is awkward with your baggage etc you leave the bus/train station and actually walk past your apartment to get there.the guy that checked us in was not very helpful or friendly in helping us with questions about supermarkets or directions. Other than that we had a fantastic time and I would rate the apartment very highly.
