Room was clean and seemed a pleasant enough space to spend some time in relaxing if needed. Mattress was a bit on the firm side but I guess durability wins the day. Staff were really friendly and always willing to help or advise. Situation of the hostel is ideal, and despite it being in the Temple Bar area there wasn't...

Having read some reviews, I made sure to ask for a quiet room. I got room 109 - a mixed-sex dorm - which was away from the street (ear plugs recommended in those rooms, apparently) but next to kitchen. Breakfast is available from 7.30-9.30am so it could be noisy from 7, when the member of staff starting setting up (breakfast...

You really don't have to go far for pubs and restaurants but at times you could not get into the pubs as they were full standing room only. Great choice of eating places and being two females on our own we felt very secure walking about

Good location near to Mare street Friendly Sardinian at desk knew my name and let me check in near to midnight (my flight was inbound delayed) The street is pedestrianised so the taxi would not drive down it

Excellent localization, excellent staff, good atmosphere. Negative points: no elevator and small rooms. The staff was very helpful by providing previous information regarding parking. Located among the best bars in Dublin.

Very good value and in a central location. €18 for a bed in a mixed 6 bed ensuite dorm. Outside the door are all of the pubs and restaurants of Temple Bar. The staff are nice and speedy at check in. The breakfast ran out of milk though (around 9am) and it was not replaced, despite a number of guests...

Perfect hostel to stay in Dublin! Right in the city center, walking distance from nearly everything and just 2 doors down from the famous Temple Bar. Great for young people visiting on a budget. Would highly recommend!!!!

We spent 2 days in a 6 bed dorm with friends. Beds comfortable, rooms small, location was perfect and close to majority of landmarks by foot. Cereal & toast included. Smell coming from soil pipes on our level 1. You can leave your bags once checked out for €1 or €3 euro if your not staying at the hostel.
