The hostel was I deal for me to get to & from the Roma Street station for the airport. The front desk at check in was super kind & helpful. Unfortunately the 4 bed female dorm with an en suite bathroom I was in didn’t have a hot water tap that seemed to work & the cleanliness of the bathroom in general I found below par compared to other hostels I’ve previously stay at. It was do able for one night but the bathroom let it down unfortunately
