Good hostel right in the middle of Temple Bar. Because of its locations, it's got a little bit of a party vibe and usually attracts a younger crowd. Little bit hard to sleep because of location, but overall very clean, good security, and amazing staff! They were so helpful and nice and showed us where we could go to sightsee...

Fun hostel! Great security and clean rooms. Good service at the desk. Breakfast gets busy so get there early! Stayed in a 6 bed room. Nice size, with a bathroom in the room. Lounge room is nice. Would definitely recommend!

It's right in the heart of the Temple Bar area, so prepare for noise! This is a party district, which makes it fun, but loud. Tons of bars and restaurants...and barber shops, strangely enough! I cannot say enough about the staff. They are friendly and helpful, just great. I had left my iPad at a hostel in Galway and the...

It's two or three store fronts down from the Temple Bar. All the major landmarks are within walking distance. Staff was very friendly. Met some really cool people from around the world. They have a nice break room and they allow you to use their facilities after checkout if you are waiting for your flight.

We wanted to book a cheap room for the night and managed to secure a room with two bunk beds to ourselves at a reasonable rate. The room was adequate but the chap at the front desk was exceptionally helpful. I suspect he was the manger but he let us leave our bags for the morning before check in time...

fantastic location right next to the famous Temple Bar. Very secure with lockable cages under the bed for your bags. Ensuite rooms. The only complain i hve was the odd smell in the corridor but was only temporary.

The hostel is LITERALLY right next door to temple bar. There wasnt too much of a social atmosphere but the staff were nice and you're right next to temple bar so you can just go there instead. The facilities were clean and the staff were super duper helpful! Would recommend!

We booked this hostel a few days before we were staying and asked before we booked if their airport shuttle would be running on New Years Day, they told us it would, so that is why we booked it. When we went to check in, they informed us that it would not be running and they didn't know of another...

Thank you for your review and we are sorry to read that you found our staff to lack knowledge. We use an independent company for the airport shuttle service, they are supposed to operate every day but should they decide not to run there is not a lot we can do about it. But our staff should have explained that...
